Com'on 20Ten is far from that bad:

Best: Sign O The Times

Worst: If we're counting Kamastra as an album.............

Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!

I would take NEWS, Xpectation, and One Nite Alone Piano over 20ten anyday. I suppose that is why I like Walk In Sand so much. It could have fit on One Nite Alone perfectly.

Best - Purple Rain

Worst - New Power Soul

Not counting any of the instrumental albums as proper albums. Also, I need more time to process 20ten, right now I'm not sure it's any better than New Power Soul in my book.

If I were going to comment, THAT would be the manner in which I would. Each of his albums have their own mood or flavor, and I don't see any of them in terms of "Best" or "Worst".

That being said, I have given this a little thought over the past several days. And while it's hard to pick just one in either catagory, I'd pick my FAVORITE album in terms of: If I had to spend the rest of eternity on a deserted island, what ONE Prince album would I want to take along? And my answer would be a toss up between "Sign 'o' The Times" and "1999". As far as which would be my LEAST FAVORITE: I'd base that on how I felt about it the first time I heard it, and by the number of times I've played it since. And that would be a toss up between "Chaos & Disorder" and "Old Friends For Sale".

But I should also note: The thing about me and Prince, even the albums that I would list as my least favorite, I recognize as being very well produced. And I also reserve the right to feel better about them, should I ever give them more EAR-time.

Best: Sign O the Times

Worst: 20ten (Even worse than news)

I'm starting to think of 20ten almost as more of an EP than an LP though. Don't really consider the Kamasutra a legit album for something like this.

While we're hitting some rankings. Here we go:

For You (5)

Prince (6)

Dirty Mind (8)

Controversy (7)

1999 (10)

Purple Rain (10)

ATWIAD (8)

Parade (8)

SOTT (10)

Lovesexy (6)

Black Album (6)

Batman (8)

Graffiti Bridge (4)

Diamonds and Pearls (7)

Symbol (6)

Come (8)

Exodus (4)

Chaos and Disorder (5)

Gold Exp (7)

Emancipation (4)

The Truth (5)

New Power Soul (7)

The Vault (5)

Rave (5)

Rainbow Children (4)

One Nite Alone (7)

NEWS (3)

Slaughterhouse (5)

Chocolate Invasion (5)

Musicology (5)

3121 (8)

Planet Earth (5)

LotusFlower (2)

MPLSound (3)

20ten (0)
