While Purple Rain tends to get the lion's share of attention from the general public, most hardcore fans acknowledge that it's this album that truly captures the depth & breadth of Prince's songwriting & musicianship. His first album following the end of The Revolution, the 2 disc set features several standout tracks with offerings that run the gamut of popular music genres.

Starfish and Coffee is a gem... of his best albums

Prince was pretty much unbeatable in the 80s and you could make an argument that pound for pound he made better music than other decade icons like Madonna, Michael, Bruce, and U2. He certainly made more of it and perhaps no other major artist has had such a serious quality control issue. "Purple Rain" is the Prince album for many people, while "1999" is the fun party album, but 1987's "Sign O' the Times" is maybe Prince's definitive statement, a sprawling, ambitious, messy double album that shows off everything that he can do, from funk to rock to party anthems to spiritual songs to weird experiments. While he remains an interesting, if inconsistent, artist, this may have been his peak.
