Game Changer

In 1980 and 1981, respectively, Prince released two of his masterworks, Dirty Mind and Controversy. With their heavy use of synthesizers, drum machines and classic rock/doo-wop influences, the albums were hugely influential, altering the course of 1980s pop music and establishing Prince as a true genius.
