With you on both points.  If you haven't seen it, check out his solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" - at the end of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SFNW5F8K9Y.  Truly amazing.  Got to feel a tad sorry for the guy who was carrying the lead prior to that ...

 
Thanks for the link... Not a big fan of Prince's music either but WOW what a talent

Sounds like a cat being tortured.  I just don't get princess, talented guitar player but puke performer/songwriter trash.
Her music always sounds thin and wispy like a parody or something.  Time to tune in something else.

One of the most incredible songwriters in American history. Hands down. This and Raspberry Beret are absolute classics. An absolute genius.

The same could be said of your giving Radiohead a lot of 1s for their tracks. Are you saying that you too can be an elitist from time to time or are you just a plain vanilla hypocrite?

Yeah ... tho I'm not sure it's the 'core' of RP listeners, but it's certainly true of some subset thereof.

when you think about Picasso, and how he took a drawing, and gradually removed bits of the definition of the object, reducing it a bare minimum - but to the point where you could still tell what it was...

Listen to the minimalism here: the vocal, the simple rhythm track, the weirdly gated drums, the sparse rhythm guitar and minimal backgrounds - but it's all a percolating funk.

Wow - I'm really surprised with collective score on this one. If there was a better, pure funk track that came out during this period, I don't know what it was.

And bonus points for a mid-80's track that doesn't sound dated.
