High school sucks. How did we ever survive it? Why do we subject our children to it? High school should be about finding yourself, but instead it’s a four-year cage match against a grizzly bear.

Prince releases his 7th album on April 22, 1978.

George Clinton loved the album, some critics didn’t. Others compared it to The Beatles, Sgt. Peppers.

Alan Light, Pitchfork, 2016
