Prince albums have to be heard like this, as records, true works of art.

'All love and thanks to God!', said Prince on the back of this album's credits. Whether 'God' or something else, Prince's twisted funk music always touched anyone's g-spot, some being irritated by endless ecclecticism of his or simply for it is truly fascinating - the effect 'Lovesexy' has is a fair share of orgasmic chills; bizzare 'continuous sequence' in which funk, exoticism and of course - sex - make its powerful mad drive; of course if it were stripped down to basics, who knows - 'Lovesexy' could have ended up as one of Prince's later-on failures ('Graffiti Bridge' onwards...); but despite such inappropriate, later cuts (change of style, name, religious beliefs, too much everything over the top, etc) Prince remains as careful a rock-person.

'Lovesexy' is probably one of his finest moments if not the finest alone - rich, sometimes classical arrangements ('I Wish You Heaven', beautiful 'Anna-Stesia'), screaming with computer and human percussion ('I No', 'Alphabet St.', phenomenal 'Dance On'), Hendrix-esque guitars ('Lovesexy', 'Glam Slam' which rivals the guitar in brutal keyboard runs at the end) or perverse tape-looping, it is quite questionable if 'God' offers such pleasures up there - music to feel truly naked by (hence the cover)... provocative and insane.
