An album that for me was like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with warm. And "Sign O' the Times" is the epitome of funk fuzed pop--just brilliant.
"U turn on the telly and every other story
Is tellin' U somebody died
Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies
"Sign o' the Times is the ninth studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on March 31, 1987, by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. Records. The album is the follow-up to Parade (1986), and Prince's first "solo" album following his departure from The Revolution. The songs were largely recorded during 1986 to 1987 in sessions for albums Prince ultimately aborted: Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball.
The album's music encompasses a varied range of styles, including funk, soul, psychedelic pop, electro, and rock music. Its release was supported by several singles, among them the androgynous "If I Was Your Girlfriend" and the socially conscious title track, and was also accompanied by a well-received concert film of the same name. It received widespread critical acclaim upon its release, with many critics since referring to it as Prince's best work."
