Lovesexy by Prince
Released: May 1988
Label: Warner Bros.
After Prince's traumatic experience with 1987's The Black Album, a legendary bootleg of raw, nasty funk, he envisioned himself as a nude child sprouting in God's garden. "I know there is a heaven and a hell" he sings on "Eye No"; he then asks the Lord to liberate his mind on "Anna Stesia," and exhorts us to accept our savior before it's too late on "Positivity." Lovesexy was both musically stunning and eerily inhibited, as if he suppressed his dirty past for a new funk-pop gospel. It was also a commercial flop, making it the last of Prince's classic struggles with sex and religion.
