Amoeba Review

Taylor, Berkeley 09/15/2017

Come for the first remaster of Purple Rain in 30 years; stay for the first posthumous glimpse into Prince’s legendary vault of unreleased material… We might only be hearing it for the first time in 2017, but a jam like “Wonderful Ass” could be a mega-hit on the level of “When Doves Cry” in some alternate universe, burrowed into the world’s collective pop-music consciousness for a generation and counting.


06/21/2017

The audio for the 2017 reissue of Purple Rain was taken from the 2015 Paisley Park remaster of the original soundtrack tapes (overseen by Prince himself) and the album sounds better than ever — more vibrant, more alive, more straight up sexy. In addition to the classic album, the Deluxe version features eleven unreleased tracks from 1983-1984. The great thing about this reissue is it’s not just for collectors and diehard fans; those unreleased tracks are peak Prince, which means they’re worth the price of the album alone. When you can take one of the greatest albums of all time and add that little extra somethin’-somethin’ that makes it just that tiny bit even better, you know you’ve got your hands on a quality reissue.
