Alphabet Street was for me the last great Prince single, I quite liked Sexy M.F. but for me nothing after the lead single from Lovesexy ever came close to the very strange, multi-instrumentalist's best output up until 1990.
I blame the Batman soundtrack, it all went a bit shit after that. I could be wrong but after a couple of the name changes and below par records I lost interest and have not really listened to anything since Musicology. He is still selling out tours and you can see his influence in artist such as Janelle Monae and any number of RnB acts but as an artist with vision who sets the trend, well I think that that is all in the past.
Thingy - Alphabet Street.
