The second, self-titled album I never really got into.

Some good songs, but the overall impression of the album is just too bland for me. I definitely prefer "For You" over it.

Of course, being a fan, I've listened to it many, many times over the years and I know the songs all the way through.

After listening to Controversy-era concerts, the second album (and Dirty Mind) do seem a little "flat". Those songs became fierce live, too thin on record. A remix might help, but that strays into "not Prince's intent" territory.

Rave. Of the classic ‘80s albums, Parade. Great songs, but I just don’t feel a compulsive need to listen to it a lot, unless I’m listening to the entire albums of that period chronologically.

you just opened up a discussion. I wish he had more full band songs on the 2nd album, even though I like a lot of the music on that. I think it would have made a difference, maybe brought some muscle to the album.

But the discussion, I'm looking at outtakes and see/listening to what could have made that one stronger

Rave is hard to get into. Some lovely tracks, TGRES, Tangerine, but it doesn't float my boat

1999 I just don't get on with and it's a good album I know

2010 is blah and never did it for me

For you and Prince I like but I never go out my way for
Batman is the same

Goldzigga.... Mmm I like one track. That's it.

Atwiad - I wish it was purple rain 2 so I always feel unmotivated to play it then when I do I tbink oh I love this

Prince... never really grabbed me, like someone else said, it was a bit too bland compared to the albums it was sandwiched between. I have come to appreciate it in recent years more, I don't know if I just found the cover off-putting? I recently saw a Donna Summer album cover that was very similar...

The only other album (if you can even call it that) that I find truly boring/unlistenable is Xpectation. N.E.W.S. i like, but Xpectation is a snooze-fest to me.

Dirty Mind is in my top 5. It's rawness is what makes that album so cool,

Besides 7 & and God Created Woman, its an overblown mess. Never been a fan, and its the low-point of my Prince fandom. I am shocked people are saying Dirty Mind, Controversy, or Parade..or really anything from his golden 80s period.

What outtakes can I add in that might spark a playlist?

To be honest, I will listen to all of his albums but if I really had to choose, I would say the 1st and 2nd albums.

Planet Earth.
I never got to put an attentive listening to it.
I always did some other things while listening to it, really a boring album, without personality.
