Emancipation and Crystal Ball (the square one) aren't exactly going to win any art awards either.

to be honest - almost none of his artwork really got my intention. ok, maybe SIGN 'O' THE TIMES (or in general all the work of Laura LiPuma, that was her name, not?).
But that Parke stuff... uff, looked all the same to me.

How could I forget that dog. It looks so incredibly Kitsch.
Not to mention the actual packaging. Nice cardboard file.
I bet it will look just as nice in 10 years as it does now.

wink

I mean, what's up with that? Prince sending us cd's in them
cases especially designed to scratch the hell out of the cd.

Is it because he wants all the cd's to be bust in a year so
he can then release them to retail and make us all buy them
again??

lol

that may be exactly it...evillol

I love the 'Come' artwork. I think it's classy.

I'd have to say the worst are-

For You
Chaos and Disorder- boring
Emancipation- cheap
Rave in2- he looks evil
The Truth- since there isn't one!

EMANCIPATION- it's cheesy cheepness made the music feel cheap

CRYSTAL BALL- this was seriously the best he could do?

PRINCE- my local record store always puts this cd on the "staff picks" as a joke!With that cover who can sell the music?!?!?!

DIRTY MIND- the cashiers laughed at this cover when I bought it!

LOVESEXY- did he want to embarass his fans when they took this to the till

GRAFITTI BRIDGE-ugly!

BLUE D&P- boring

SYMBOL- only the gold symbol was interesting

COME- dull

GOLD- a cd that deserved better, like maybe a gold colored Mayte wrapped around the symbol

C&D- you CAN judge a cd by it's cover

RAVE- looks like a fruitcake

VBOP- should have used that creepy, smoky Picture from 1999 as the cover ONLY; I used to have the poster It was cool;

ONLY SIGN TRC AND PARADE ARE GOOD 2 ME

Top 5 fugly Prince wrekka covers:

5.Graffiti Bridge - Ingrid's head is just floatin' there.
4.Pandemonium - I think I'm gonna hurl.
3.Symbol - Good idea with the gold symbol. Bad cover art.
2.The War - Put it in a brown paper bag.
1.New Power Soul - What is right about this cover?
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

I'd say the worst cover is New Power Soul.

I was going to also include Chaos and Disorder and The Vault, but IMO even though those aren't that great, they have a reason to be bad. From a historical aspect, they mark a protest and non-involvement, and the fact that they're sub-par is actually cool.

NPS, on the other hand, was an "emancipated" release. No record-label, total creative freedom, etc. Look what happened.

I think Emancipation's liner/lyric book artwork is incredible. I just wish it would have carried over onto the cover (the orange does not do the album justice).

New Power Soul, with Graf Bridge a close second.

I just hate those collage, painted-over covers.


With NPS I can understand it somewhat since it might be a
bit of a wink at Parliament and Funkadelic artwork but the
awfulness of Graf Bridge was truely uncalled for.


Oh no!!! Graffiti Bridge uncalled for??? The cover is one of my favorites. I have the poster. Love it!!!

After that:

Around the World in a Day
Sign
1999 (The "1999" part is on my arm 4 life)
Lovesexy
Parade
Purple Rain

that also about sums up my favorite albums -- except for Graffiti Bridge.

i like The Rainbow Children artwork also

but we're looking for ugliest, so...

EMANCIPATION
NEW POWER SOUL
CRYSTAL BALL
let me come over it's a beautiful day to play with you in the dark

bad album covers

not rally any but...


Crystal Ball - book was very dull no name of songs on back of cover either made me upset. Cool Lp though

Come - Prince looked like he was on drugs seriously or very lonely, even the name of songs were...lonely. 2 much make up also.

Black Album - lets not even talk about that, probably should'nt count but, maybe some gothic font would've been cool in the corner somewhee.

The Around The World In A Day singles were very dull, but the fonts were REALLY REALLY NICE, all that paisley madness was nice.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
