2014 edition of the top 10 favorite albums poll UPDATED WITH RESULTS!!!

It's been done many times b4 but I guess it's time 4 an update particularly with a remasters program on the way.

.

Rules r simple: list ur 10 favorite prince albums in order from #1 (most favorite) to #10 (least favorite of the most favorites). The idea of course is ur 10 favorites 2day. May have been difefrent yesterday, may b different 2morrow but what is it now.

.

Results will b calculated on the basis that #1 gets 10 points, #2 gets 9 points, #3 gets 8 points, etc.

.

Side projects r allowed as long as they can b considered prince albums (i.e. don't put a Paisley Park album with only 2 prince songs on it).

.

Video albums r allowed as well (live shows + The Undertaker), live and digital-only albums can of course be added as well.

.

I'll add my vote later, just wanna let u guys start cool

.

The last poll from2013 had these results:

1. Sign o the Times

2. Purple Rain

3. Parade

4. 1999

5. Lovesexy

6. ATWIAD

7. Dirty Mind

8. The Gold Experience

9. Controversy

10. The Rainbow Children

.

The 1 b4 that was from 2010 IIRC, I don't remember the full list but top 3 was SOTT then PR then 1999 and TRC wasn't in it, so it's interesting 2 c how it evolves year after year smile

.

Just 4 fun: nothing ethereal wink

Not a direct dig at anyone here, but those who aren't putting their favourite albums in numberical order are basically just wasting time, as it won't be possible to incorporate it into the top ten. Just saying..

Here's my top 10 at the moment:

1. Purple Rain

2. Lovesexy

3. Controversy

4. Batman (yes, really!)

5. The Gold Experience

6. Love Symbol album

7. 1999

8. Parade (would have been in my top 3 had the extended Mountains, Anotherlover and Alexa De Paris been included)

9. Sign O' The Times

10. The Black Album

I'm surprised The Love Symbol Album is rarely mentioned on these lists. Possibly his best 90's album?

Haha, you are right with your bolded remark! I will edit my post so it can be included.

Agree with your remark about The (Love) Symbol album, definately one of his best post 80's albums. Almost included it, but unfortunately those annoying segues and a few clunkers prevent is from making my Top 10 list...

Remember this is supposed to be a list of

your favorite albums not best albums. I included

The Gold Experience because I group it with

Exodus & Come as a triple disc representation

of that time period.
