In my opinion:
• Sister is a clunker on Dirty Mind (purely for the lyrics, although I am thankful for its short length).
• Take me with u is a clunker on PR (always hated it. Prince's worst song IMO).
• I find International Lover to be a clunker on 1999.

My personal list of his clunker free albums are:
• Controversy
• SOTT
• The Gold Experience

Purple Rain & The Gold Experience are the only ones that are clunker-free

I haven't listened to many of his albums, so there could be more non-clunker-containing albums that I'm unaware of.

I personally feel ALL albums have clunkers but I'll go with Sign O' the Times since that's my fav.

I am assuming a clunker is a filler track or at least a track that will detract from an album's overall quality.

.

Dirty Mind (Sister is close, but I will give it a pass as its quite funny)

1999

Purple Rain

Parade

SOTT (The four albums 1999 - SOTT are amongst the most deeply satisfying of his career)

Lovesexy

TGE (Shy is close, but given the albums around it, this album stands out for its tight quality)

3121

AOA 9AOC comes close, but again it gets a pass)

Phase 2

Disc 2 of Purple Rain Deluxe/Expanded

.

Prince has clunkers with When we are dancing close and slow and with you

Controversy is derailed by Ronnie talk to Russia

ATWIAD - Needed to shut down Temptation quicker

Black - Sorry it is full of clunkers, Bob George, 2 Nigs and Dead on it

Batman to Musicology excluding TGE, good albums with one or more clunkers like Face Down, Da da da, I rock thereore I am, Solo, Lemon Crush, Jughead, Arrogance etc.

Where I come from, we don't give a damn, we do whatever we please!

"The Gold Experience" is all clunkers, with the exceptions of "Shhh" and "Shy"

"Condition of the Heart" is a super duper clunker on ATWIAD. That is the first track on any P album that I skipped most every time...just unlistenable. There is maybe one song like that on his first album, but it's his first album so gets a pass there.

I agree with a lot of this, great post, but I love International Lover. Surprised to see that mentioned. My only criticism of 1999 is that some of the tracks are unnecessarily long and I don't like the rude swearing on the end of Lets Pretend We're Married.

I'd consider a clunker any song that you tend to skip on an album playthrough, thus I'll list the Prince records I listen from beginning to end:

Controversy

Purple Rain

Parade

Runner up albums would be:

Sign O' The Times (U Got The Look, real shame because otherwise that enire thing is awesome song for song.)

Dirty Mind (Uptown, that hook is so wack. "Uptooooowwn!" ugh)

Any other album has more than one skip.
