About this item

Rolling Stone - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he weaponizes Prince's fluidly radical pop-funk spirit for a new power generation, targeting oppression on various intersectional fronts....It's a sexy MF-ing masterpiece."
Spin - "The album is best in its meatiest section, a run of songs in the middle of the tracklist that remind us that Mon e and her team -- including the writers and producers Nate Wonder and Chuck Lightning -- have the songwriting chops to justify their reverence."
Spin - Included in Spin's "The 51 Best Albums of 2018" -- "DIRTY COMPUTER is the closest she's come to making an album in which she's all things to all people. Most obviously, she's a successor to Prince..."
Entertainment Weekly - "[A] collection of funky, smart, and ferocious tracks combining echoes of her heroes -- including Prince -- with her own special feel."
Entertainment Weekly - Included in Entertainment Weekly's "The 20 Best Albums of 2018" -- "With assists from Zo‰ Kravitz and Grimes, Mon e's DIRTY COMPUTER transforms 'The Future Is Female' from a marketable slogan into a foregone conclusion."
Uncut - "Its kaleidoscopic, digital-funk sound was reflected in its castlist, though, including Prince, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson and Pharrell..."
Billboard - "Monae shimmies and shines on sex-positive tracks like 'Make Me Feel' and 'I Like That,' weaving clever lyrics and beats baring her late mentor Prince's legendary fingerprints throughout."
NME (Magazine) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "It's one of the greatest artists of our time carrying Prince's baton into the new world....She's got The Purple One's punk, mad-scientist approach but creates a world all of her own."
Pitchfork (Website) - "DIRTY COMPUTER's opening act is harmonically lush, filled with bright synthesizers and rhythm guitars that refuse to linger in the melancholy found in the lower frets -- their realm is one of tentative exhilaration, of becoming."
Clash (Magazine) - "DIRTY COMPUTER captures the plight of today's outsiders who are fighting back, forming the world to be. Mon e is 10 steps ahead, past the Trump era, embracing the robot-utopia that gives hope to an unprejudiced and equal world."
