CRITIC REVIEWS

100
AllMusic

Sure, Prince stretches out a bit too much over the course of 1999, but the result is a stunning display of raw talent, not wallowing indulgence.

Pitchfork

Prince’s singular vision and willingness to indulge his curiosities just enough created an apocalypse-anticipating album that, perhaps paradoxically, was built to last for decades and even centuries to come.

Rolling Stone
Just as Prince must face the contradiction of creating music that gracefully dissolves racial and stylistic boundaries yet fits comfortably into no one's playlist, he must also decide whether he can "dance my life away" when everybody has a bomb. All you need is love?

"Little Red Corvette" sells this album from the start and it builds it up to be one hell of a pop and funk fueled joy ride.

The ingenious Prince has finally carried out his triumphant trick and transported himself to the future with his tempting computer-funk, to destroy, deliriously, every barrier.
