This new version of "Let's Go Crazy" is balls-to-the-wall rock guitar awesome. He even channels "Frankenstein" in the middle of it.
I've grown to love Prince in the last couple decades, but I wasn't prepared for this. This is awesome.
I couldn't take Prince seriously in the 80s because (for one thing) he wasn't a hard rock guy. When I was a teenager, that was a big thing. Secondly, he was pitched in the media as Michael Jackson's contemporary. That also wouldn't fly in my white-boy suburban heavy-metal world. Oh. I met the minimum? Cool.
