Rate "For you" out of ten

Statistics are cool... Here are the preliminary results for Hit n Run....

96 grades given, 4 nonsense responses excluded

Average grade: 5.4

44 orgers grade below average (<5.4)

52 orgers grade above average (>5.4)

The median grade is 6.0, so this makes it an OK album.

Now, let's rate all albums one by one, starting with For You

If we're only talking Prince albums - 6.5.

If we're talking about all music ever made - 4.

This one is about For You, which was Prince's debut album. So not Prince albums, nor all music ever made. What's your grade for For you?

The art on the cover and inside jacket with the 3s looking to present, past, and future (a guess here) is something key...Prince seems to be showing the 3s again...
The music is sweet...

It's got Soft & Wet, so I give it 1 out of 10. The rest, IMO, is toe curling.

8. I play it more than many of the classic albums. Just like the naive but effective songs.

Baby is so sweet.

I'm very fond of this album, but I can't realistically call it more than a 6.

10/10 ....still my favorite Prince album...amazing vocal arrangements and poetic lyrics everywhere...."My Love Is Forever" is the greatest song of all time by anyone...the virtuoso bass and guitar work on "Im Yours" is far beyond his rookie status..."Crazy You", "Baby", "For You", "In Love", "Baby", ""Just As Long As We're Together" are all timeless classics that sound like nothing else he ever did again...so many hypnotic keyboard melodies and incredible synth programming...the only song on the album that hasnt aged well, is "Soft & Wet" and that was his first hit...

I meant in comaprison to all other Prince albums 6.5. Comparing to all other music - 4. smile

7 or 7.5. I love the unreleased version of My Love is Forever best out of all this material.
