Prince - Sign
Jul 27, 2017
90
Some people overuse the word “genius,” but Sign O’ the Times provides indisputable evidence that Prince is worthy of that label.

His willingness to examine his own life and engage the world around him results in grooves that put the listener in motion at both ends of the spinal column (“Housequake,” “Hot Thing”), artful storytelling that sent his peers back to the drawing board (“Sign O’ the Times,” “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker,” “If I Was Your Girlfriend,” “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man”), and vocal performances that remind people of what made his voice such a revelation in the first place (“Forever in My Life,” “The Cross,” and “Adore”).

With 16 songs clocking in at roughly 80 minutes, Sign O’ the Times is a masterclass on how pop music can matter when it needs to.
