Controversy > Wiki


Written, produced, arranged, and performed by that little old funkmaster,Controversyhit stores in 1981 and still rocks 17 years later. As the title suggests, the subject matter Prince tackles here was meant to spark discussion. From the nasty anthems "Sexuality" and "Do Me Baby", to the slice of '80s political commentary "Ronnie Talk to Russia" and "Annie Christian," Prince does just that. Oh, and he doesn't forget about the booty either, making this the ultimate agit-prop, sex-you-up soundtrack.--Amy Linden

Not quite prime time Prince material. Nonetheless, there are some good bouncy tunes. Of course the title track stands strong as well as the album closer Jack You Off. Do Me, Baby has a captivating slow groove and Joy is just enjoyable. Funny when you find the right word.Definitely a good album to put on when you feel like dancing. However the eight songs do not distinguish themselves as much as later releases(1999, Purple Rain, Sign O' The Times)would. However, there is some Joy that you will experience …
