What prince albums do you actually listen to

What I mean is what albums do you listen to as albums form start to finish not just the odd track. I know theres only a few I listen to as albums without pressing skip, and here they are:

1. Purple rain
2. Sign of the times
3. Around the world in a day
4. Dirty Mind
LET A WOMAN BE A WOMAN AND A MAN BE A MAN

You know, I have a lot of favorite Prince CD's but there are only 2 CD's where I can consistantly let it play from start to finish and that one is:

Parade
Lovesexy (not because of it being 1 track either) lol

The other CD's where I only skip one song, though I let it play all the way through sometimes is

Dirty Mind
Controversy
1999
Purple Rain
Around The World in a Day
SOTT
The Black Album
Batman
The Gold Experience
The Rainbow Children

I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

All the way thru, huh?
All of my 80's albums:

Dirty Mind thru The Black Album
Come
Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic (unless u count skipping the last song as skipping)
3121
PE

I'm always skipping one song in D&P (three guesses which), 3 in prince, only one in TGE (excluding the segues, which I skip all), and a whole bunch in NewPower Soul rolleyes
had 2 run away... pride was 2 strong. It started raining, baby, the birds were gone

I listen to them all, all the way through, except skipping over...

Freaks on this side...
a couple from Crystal Ball...
I have a few times skipped over Chelsea Rogers.
And I skip over joint 2 joint. I have to say...the vocals that say..."Sex me...Sex me...." are terrible....It desroys the song....otherwise I wouldn't skip it.
And that's all.

All of them through Sign 'O' the Times.
The Black Album
The Gold Experience
NEWS
3121
The Vault
C-note
Xpectation

Actually, save a track or two on each, I can listen to the rest of them, too. That's the nice thing about iTunes and my iPod. I don't even have to acknowledge the stuff I don't care for.

I never hear Jughead, for example. lol

The ones I can listen to all the way through are, SOTT, For You, Prince, Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain and Lovesexy.
I haven't listened to any Prince music in a while though..
It is not known why FuNkeNsteiN capitalizes his name as he does, though some speculate sunlight deficiency caused by the most pimpified white guy afro in Nordic history.
