This album lands on my top 5 favourite Prince albums of all time...One thing that seems to be overlooked is that this album has some amazing guitar in it. That old, funky rock and roll guitar I love to hear. The guitar in "Bambi" is absolutley some of the best guitar I've ever heard on any Prince album. The end of that song rocks like no other. I remember seeing the video for "Why U Wanna Treat Me So Bad", which I think promted me to buy this album. Simply amazing. What I think I like most about this album are the ballads. They have some of the most simple lyrics about love, but have so much passion and romantism built in to them. "With U" is a sexy slow jam (actually Jill Jones' version is almost better than the Prince one), the lyrics are sickly sweet. Another powerhouse ballad is "It's Gonna Be Lonely". Prince's high pitch is at it's prime in this period, so he truely wails on this one. Classic underated Prince. Another track I absolutley love is "Still Waiting". A total adolescent Prince with yearing lyrics that seem like Mariah Carey poetry. But the message is plain and clear, and Prince can tear up a love ballad. "Sexy Dancer" has an extremely rare 12" version that's awesome. There is also an outake track that is now a bootleg called "Lisa", that I think is from this period. It's a great song that I wish Prince would release on another Crystal Ball!! To sum up, This is a Prince album I find myself going back to time and time again, and love the way it makes me feel every time. And for the reviewer who critizes the album's cover and fonts, calling it "tacky".....Tacky is timeless, and tacky always ends up being beautiful in the end.
