  12. 12.
  13. 13. "Prince is the boldest black singer in postmodern music, hands down. His voice has multiple personalities, he's fearless, and when he screams, he truly sounds like he's crazy." Indeed, that throat-shredding climax to "The Beautiful Ones" feels like a man who has lost his mind — it's as convincing as the passion dripping from the lighter-than-air falsetto in "Adore," the pure-rock shouting of "Let's Go Crazy" or the robotic deadpan of "When Doves Cry.“<br />Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson<br />
  14. 14.
  15. 15. "His vocals are just limitless. There's the androgynous, very feminine Prince, there's the James Brown-style Prince, the gospel Prince, the rock & roll Prince. He has so many different textures and dimensions with his voice — and everything is funky. “<br />Lenny Kravitz<br />
