There is no concept, it was contract filler.

Compared to Come and Gold Exp does Chaos and Disorder suck? Absolutely Yes. But worst Prince album ever? Not even CLOSE. LotusFlow3r and 20ten make Chaos and Disorder sound like Sign O the Times by comparison. At the time of it's release it was for sure the lowest point in Prince's career, but next to some of his new material (where he's trying to make good music) Chaos starts to sound pretty decent.

List of albums worse then C&D:

Rainbow Children

Lotus/MPLSound

20ten

most of prince's instrumental work

Emancipation

If you have made albums like Purple Rain, Parade, Lovesexy, then you've earned the right to make shitty albums for the rest of your life & I will still love U!

Chaos and Disorder is indeed a pile of crap. So is Diamonds and Pearls and Graffiti Bridge before it. However all these are masterpieces compared to the flat, squelchy fart that is Rave...

Imo, the albums u mentioned aren´t close to Prince´s worst album at all.

TRBC is in my Top5

Emancipation in my Top10

For me, Prince´s worst album is Kamasutra by far.

Tastes differ.

I have come to realise that I actually like them all, though I initially did not warm to Chaos & Disorder, Emancipation, Newpower Soul, Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic...until I started to see them as part of his creative process and began to view them as "valuable" in that regard as, say, Controversy, Around The World In A Day, Batman or Graffiti Bridge (each of which I initially really enjoyed). Some albums take forever and a day to understand, let alone appreciate. Parade was such an album for me. Each step is needed to get to the next and I realise I'd rather enjoy the WHOLE journey, than single out anything as particularly more or less valuable. It is all required in the creative process and there is something to be said for learning and developing through both peaks and troughs, for an artist.

C&D has some good stuff on it - it's nowehere near as bad as the albums where he's trying too hard to appeal to modern pop fans- Rave, NPS, much of Emancipation, The NPG Club years

I was really dissapointed with this album when it came out, but now I love it. Especially the title track.

Not trying to start anything, but seriously? Rainbow Chi is on your top 5? That means that by definition you left out one of the following albums in place of TRC:
SOTT

1999
Purple Rain
Parade
Lovesexy
Dirty Mind
Controversy

For serious? You put TRC above one of these albums on your list? And as for Emancipation on your top 10, you can add Gold, Come, D&P, Batman, and Lovesymbol to the above list and how the hell did Emancipation make it on your top 10?

Eye totally disagree wit u with the Rainbow Children, Emancipation, and 20ten those albums were decent and the Rainbow Children album was eye think was Prince most creative album to date. Sometimes eye think that we base our album on gender, age, or race but chaos & disorder is just garbage.

As Philly said, tastes differ.

In my opinion, TRC is better than Purple Rain, LoveSexy, Dirty Mind and most definitely Controversy from that list. At an exaggerated push, i'd put it above 1999 too. It's a creative musical masterpiece.

LOL I am not a religious nutball, I don't share his religious views, and to me TRC is one of his musically most coherent and funkiest albums.
