What Prince Albums Do You Least Listen To?

For me, two of the biggest wastes of $ is when I bought "1800 NEW-FUNK" & the "ONA...Live" boxset [80$ all together that I'll never get back mad ]. I've only listen to "ONA" once, & "NF" twice (why? Hell If I know) Other ones that I rarely listen to are:

Purple Rain[For Obvious Reasons cool ]

Emancipation [Too Much To listen too at once. I'd have to put a day aside for this one lol ]

Chaos & Disorder [Eh....]

Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic [Eh....]

N.E.W.S. [Actually pretty boring imo]

Around The World In A day [As A whole, I find this one disappointing. But it's a decent album. I just prefer the hits instead of the full thing]

The Vault....OFFS [I do forget about this sometimes. "My Little Pill" always is stuck in my head though lol ]

20TEN [I just Have A Hard Time Listening to the whole thing. The mix just Hurts my ears] mad

New Power Soul [This might be Prince's worst album imo] dead

Diamonds & Pearls [Some really great songs one here. But some pretty friggin' awful ones too]

Graffiti Bridge [Same Excuse as "D & P"]

The Rainbow Children [Forgot about it. Far too long & long winded]

NPGMC Albums [rarely ever listened to them]

I'll be honest, I don't really listen to his albums very much these days. The one's I do listen to are those that stay on my iphone when I add new stuff - Dirty Mind, Parade, Box o chocs, my compilation of Lotusflowe tracks.

Everything else just doesn't really get played anymore. And even it I do put it on my iphone, it's only on there for a short time before it gets removed because I've not played it.

I don't really know why this is, I love most of his albums, but they don't have the same longevity & playability for me as the one's I mentioned above.

If we're talking albums I don't particularly like & never listen to though (one's that I've never played more than 5 times), then the list looks like this:

NEWS

ONA...Live

it ain't over

MPLSound

Slaughterhouse

Kamasutra

Planet Earth

blah blah blah

"It Ain't Over" came with ONA...Live, So I totally agree. I actually forgot about "Slaughterhouse" though. Not even sure if I got through the whole thing.... lol

I don't listen to them as albums anymore. I just put on the "Prince" playlist and let the songs shuffle through.

And that is why some view the art of the album as dead now. shame, i still listen to albums, i go through stages with various artists. I guess NPS and Emancipation are the least played.

It's not really an "art" or even that big of a deal... I do it for variety.

If I didn't, some albums would get played a lot, and others not at all. I have them all loaded, from "For You" to "2010", plus extra songs.

It is delightful when a song shuffles through that I haven't heard in a while.

When I feel like listening to whole albums, I do. That goes for Prince as well as other artists.

We all have our way of enjoying music.

I would have to say Lovesexy.

It's not that this is a bad album, it's just that the CD was created as one continuous song. You can't skip to your favorites.

I know that there are tracked versions out there, but I haven't "tracked" one down yet.

If this was a tracked CD, I'd listen to it MUCH more often, especially songs like Lovesexy, When 2 R in Love, Positivity, Dance On, etc.

It's a very good CD, but I don't like the fact that you're forced to Forward, rather than Skip.

Sad to say, another one of Prince's misguided "brilliant" ideas.

Eye Know is a great tune too, but I don't always want to start there. I want the FREEDOM to skip around. The Lovesexy format doesn't allow that.

The public is squeezin' you kiddo. You'd better kick ass on your next album or else!

I've never played any of the NPGMC albums, Rave, or Emancipation, in their entirety, not even in the background. Aggressively bad stuff.

Probably For You has been played the least number of times. I may have played that thing about two times?

20Ten would come in a close second, having been played no more than 4 or 5 times tops.

I wouldn't touch anything post 2004 (included) with a 10 foot pole.

Apart from that, both Rave seem to get the minimal spins here.

All the shit ones - Rave, Emancipation, Musuckology, 3121, you know smile

I don't really listen to GB, D&P, TGE either. Lovesexy's getting more than it's fair share of rotation lately, I guess I'm in the mood for it :yes:

I least listen to albums as a whole. I rather listen to some of the songs then the whole album itself al the time. A lot of Prince songs; at the ending seems to fall into another song; that most likely is not from that same album...lol. At least for me! Haha

The least albums I listen to are

Prince - Emancipation (Disc 2)

Prince - The Vault:Old Friends 4 Sale (My high expectations for this album quickly dwinded)

Prince - Xpectation (Look Above...I only seem to like 3 or 4 songs there..lol)

Prince - The Chocolate Invasion (It just gets lost for me as a whole)

Prince - New Power Soul (UGH)

Prince - 1-800-NEW-FUNK

Prince - The Gold Experience (I don't hate it, I like it...I just really don't listen to it..as a whole that is..)

It's Button Therapy, Baby!

- Prince

- For You

^^^Never even got around to owning those on CD

- Purple Rain: Beat to hell

- N.E.W.S.: zzzzzz

- Musicolgy: I like it but just realized I haven't listened to it in ages

- ONA Live: Saw the tour 3x and just ran it into the ground

- Any of the hits compilations

I make my own mixes to tell you the truth, because Prince releases are usually so widely varied and all over the place. I grab what I like from each record, along with outtakes and live stuff I download and just mish-mash them together into a collection that never needs the "skip" button - since Prince seems incapable of releasing one.
