Never understood the dislike for Arms of Orion on here, I think it's a beautiful song. In fact, I think the entire Batman Album is underrated. I personally love the muscular, dark funk on that album.

Diamonds and Pearls definitely has some suspect songs on it.

And 7 is one of my favorite Prince songs, I think it deserves at least a 9.

Thanks for doing this, it's cool to hear someone else's views on his songs!

U fall in love 2 fast and hate 2 soon
And take 4 granted the feeling’s mutual

These eras are what I like to call his "wilderness period" lol. Some definite gems scattered throughout these albums, but it's a vastly inconsistent period of output compared to 80-88.

Batman: this album overall is very stale imo

1. The Future - 7/10

2. Electric Chair - 8/10

3. The Arms of Orion - 6/10

4. Partyman - 7.5/10

5. Vicki Waiting - 8/10

6. Trust - 6.5/10

7. Lemon Crush - 4/10

8. Scandolous - 6.5/10

9. Batdance - 7.5/10 ( the guitar solo absolutely slays tho)

Overall: 6.7/10

Graffiti Bridge - A mixed bag, the P tracks are the only things worth attention. A bit more interesting than Batman imo

1. Can't Stop This Feeling I Got - 7.5/10

2. NPG - 7/10

3. Release It - 6/10

4. The Question of U - 9/10

5. Elephants and Flowers - 8/10

6. Round and Round - 6.5/10

7. We Can Funk - 9/10

8. Joy in Repetition - 9.5/10

9. Love Machine - 5/10 (YUCK)

10. Tick Tick Bang - 7/10 (much prefer the 1981 version)

11. Shake! - 4/10 (always skip this)

12. Thieves - 8.5/10 (underrated P pop hit, single edit should've been longer)

13. The Latest Fashion - 6/10 (reeks of filler but still fun enough to be above average for me)

14. Melody Cool - 5/10 (the version w/ P's vocals was better)

15. Still Would Stand - 7.5/10

16. Graffiti Bridge - 4.5/10

17. NPG pt. 2 - 2/10 (f'n pointless imo)

Overall: 6.7/10 - the non P tracks really hold this joint down

Diamonds and Pearls - Commercial Bliss

1. Thunder - 8/10

2. Daddy Pop - 7.5/10

3. D&P - 9/10 (beautiful pure pop ballad bliss)

4. Cream - 7.5/10

5. Strollin' - 9/10 (falsetto perfection)

6. Willing and Able - 7/10

7. Gett Off - 8.5/10

8. Walk Don't Walk - 8/10

9. Jughead - 7/10 (this is so marginalized its unfair. Stupid funky fun)

10. Money - 9/10

11. Push - 7/10

12. Insatiable - 8.5/10

13. Live 4 Love - 8/10

Overall: 8/10 (P treated this as his commercial comeback post Lovesexy and goddammit he nailed it)

prince - superior, more experimental sequel to D&P. The ballads on this are freakin beautiful.

1. My Name is Prince - 7.5/10

2. Sexy MF - 8/10

3. Love 2 the 9's - 9/10 (damn near perfect track, cut out the silly mid song rapping stuff)

4. The Morning Papers - 8.5/10

5. The Max - 7.5/10

7. Blue Light - 7.5/10

8. I Wanna Melt - 7/10

9. Sweet Baby - 8/10

10. The Continental - 8.5/10

11. Damn U - 9/10

12. Arrogance - 4.5/10

13. The Flow - 7/10

14. 7 - 9,5/10

15. And God Created Woman - 9.5/10 (almost perfect but too short)

16. 3 Chains O' Gold - 8/10

18. Sacrifice of Victor - 8/10

Overall: 7.9/10

Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people - prince 1958-2016 storm
