Background: Released in 1984, Purple Rain was the sixth album by Prince and his most successful, reaching #1 on the U.S. album charts and selling more than 13 million copies. gave Purple Rain a 5 star review:

Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar, and, surprisingly, that is exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and heavy metal with nine superbly crafted songs. …Taken together, all of the stylistic experiments add up to a stunning statement of purpose that remains one of the most exciting rock & roll albums ever recorded.
