the first three are stunning. i know some people think you shouldnt frontload an album with all the best songs, but when theyre that good, duh, of course you should.
imo prince was to the 80s what bowie was to the 70s. i know some people dont like the comparison cos they dont see prince as rock enough, but i cant think who else it would be. unless you can make madonna and prince into one person.
also, can anyone think of a more devastating bowie song than wild is the wind? whenever people say he has no soul, blah blah (not sure if people still think this in 2013), thats the song that shows theyre totally wrong.
i am still putting off hearing the new album.
