Prince by Prince
Released: Oct 1979
Label: Warner Bros.
The headliner on 21-year-old prodigy and future superstar Prince's second album is "I Wanna Be Your Lover," his first pop classic. "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" is a likable funk rock cut, but "Bambi" is crushed by wailing electric guitar. "Still Waiting" sounds naive, but he conjures real emotional pain on "It's Gonna Be Lonely." Prince is drenched in Seventies disco tropes, and the glossy studio overdubs turn it into the aural equivalent of soft-focus photography. The appealing funk grooves of "Sexy Dancer" and "I Feel for You" complete this sophomoric yet likable release.
