#Princerversaries: ‘Lovesexy’ (May 10, 1988)

It’s crazy to think that, by 1988, there were still artistic milestones that Prince hadn’t reached yet, but Lovesexy marked several firsts. Pose nude on your album cover forcing retailers to wrap the photo in black? Check. Format your album as one continuous track on CD? Check. Write “Alphabet St.,” an ode to oral sex with just enough lyrical fig leaves to crack the Billboard Top 10? Check. Blur the lines of gospel and pop, love and sex, spiritual and secular, until no lines exist at all? Bullseye! Happy 29th anniversary to Lovesexy: his journal, his canvas, his testimony.

I’m tempted to agree with you because he tackles 40+ songs at a breakneck pace; the narrative clearly signifies the spiritual tug-of-war between dark (Spooky Electric) and light (Lovesexy), and the lighting/choreography was sensational.
