Audible Editor Reviews

Through personal anecdote and the great music criticism fans have come to expect from Michelangelo Matos of Rolling Stone, Sign O' the Times takes listeners on a trip through what this celebrated Prince album means to its audience, and how it came to be. Nick Sullivan's all-American voice carries listeners through this fascinating journey: to Matos' childhood, through Prince's development as an artist, and through an album that changed the face of pop music forever. Prince fans will revel in this audiobook installment of the 33 1/3 series.

Publisher's Summary

One of the greatest double albums of the vinyl era, Sign 'O' the Times shows Prince at his peak. Here, Michaelangelo Matos tells the story of how it emerged from an extraordinary period of creativity to become one of the landmark recordings of the 1980s. He also illustrates beautifully how - if a record is great enough and lucky enough to hit you at the right time - it can change your way of looking at the world.

Rock on: listen to more of the 33 1/3 series.

    "Outstanding Audio Book"

    Matos takes on a journey that begins with him simply buying a cassette tape! Princes revolutionary work in this album changed music! Matos sincere approach shows the magic of music. I have been blown away by the right music all my life and I feel what he felt! If U are a Prince fan this book is a must. I have listened to it over 20 times! Although this album was the last of it's kind, before the garbage of Rap Music took over. It sent the album world off with a bang! Thank U Michaelangelo Matos! Look me up on facebook if U read this review. My name is Joey Derden!
