Prince – 1999

July 1, 2013

Welcome to short/long summer: less-than-60-word reviews of albums with running times of 60+ minutes.  For theme continuity, whenever possible, one band member would ideally have a sweet short/long mullet!

[Album 206/1001]

Such a filthy genius.1999_cover

It’s impossible not to party like it is 1999 when listening to the title track.

Tunes like Little Red Corvette may sound like 1982 but the energy will never get old.

As the Artist, as an unpronounceable symbol, as Prince: despite his many identities, he truly is one of a kind.

    I admire your self-discipline. I can barely describe the topic of the day in less than 60 words!

    • Thanks Ken – I remember reading Terry Fallis’ The Best Laid Plans and he had a great point of ‘why use 7 words when you can use 35?!’ As with all Stephens, I definitely subscribe to that philosophy – so it will be an interesting month trying to do the opposite!

  2. 60 words can be tough… especially when talking about music!

    • Agreed – and I’m usually fairly verbose, so it will definitely be a challenge, hopefully a semi-fun one!
