Best Prince Albums


The Top Ten

1 Purple Rain

Just rock perfection, an album of anthems, the Purple reigned

Prince's definitive masterpiece.

2 1999
3 Sign O the Times

Creamy perfection, every song is a classic, a bend of many musical styles that all have a a unique Prince feel to them. My favourite album in the world with amazing songs and so much musical panache. Adore is the greatest song ever written.

Remixes from original "Crystal ball" album ; original versions of songs sounded much better than this "hybrid" versions; try sign o the times DVD first or better unofficiall "Dream Factory" and "Camille" albums; than You will know why this album sucks - dubbelvla

5xCD boxset album with many very good songs from different times of Prince career unrealesed, changed or newly made. Has very strong materïal ouuttakes from "The gold experience" album: "Hide the Bone", "Interactive", "Acknowledge Me", "Days of Wild" or original songs from first unreleased "Crystall Ball" album: "Crucial" and many other - dubbelvla

20 Come

Outtakes from "The gold experience" album released by Warner studio but neglected by Prince. Has major hit "Letitgo" and one of his best songs "Pheromone" - good to find out this one ("Pheromone" Video LP.verșion ) and rest of songs in different unofficial versions. - dubbelvla

21 The Rainbow Children
22 Emancipation

3CD boxset. Very decent pop album, there is no highlights/hits songs, but there is also no weak spots, music is on the same level. - dubbelvla

23 The Black Album
24 HITNRUN Phase Two

His last proper release and containing some true classics. Prince went out with a bang, has Stare and Revelation which compare to the 1980s Prince in levels of pure genius.

25 Graffiti Bridge
26 Art Official Age

Decent R&B album has nice songs like "Way Back Home" or "U Know" - dubbelvla

27 Vault: Old Friends 4 Sale
28 Chaos and Disorder

Outtakes from "The gold experience" album released by Warner studio but refused by Prince. Its good to find out some of this songs in different unofficial versions (like title track "Chaos&Disorder" in previous first version). Has nice songs like: "I Will" or "I Rock, Therefore I Am". - dubbelvla

29 Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic

Decent pop album from 1999 has nice songs like: "The Sun, the Moon and Stars" or "So Far, So Pleased" (what Gwen Stefani) or single "The Greatest Romance Ever Sold" or hidden jamming track "Prettyman" - dubbelvla
