George gave SFTW a 5 on the old Prindle site (you have to use Wayback.) It's....uh...okay, I guess...the best song is the title track, and guess which song I already knew from the album?!? Why that's right you dirty devil, the TITLE TRACK!!!
Wow, I'd forgotten Walker had even put out new music since the Drift (uncapitalize that "t"!)
Dirty Mind will never stand a chance of beating Purple Rain but it does best every other non-PR Prince album that I've heard, I'll say that much. The tinny synthesizers actually seem to make the songs *better* (unlike 1999 where they really don't.)
LOL, Paul McCartney's performing "Temporary Secretary" at a recent concert made it into the Twilight Of The Gods book. I'm so happy.
