Make A Prince Record

You get 12 tracks and only 12 tracks from the three albums below.
You have to choose at least two tracks from any CD. You cannot simply re-sequence one disk.

You can put your 12 tracks in any order you wish. No duplicates or alt-versions.

Musicology

3121

Planet Earth

Go!

Agonized over and done. I am really interested how this thread goes. Luck forward to seeing some how different we all see Prince, and interested what the owner of this thread picks for their 'album' Cool thread.

obviously i'm cheating a bit here since this is still the org and we never stick to the rules 100% lol

01. All The Midnights In The World
02. F.U.N.K.
03. 3121
04. Somewhere Here On Earth
05. Magnificent
06. Black Sweat
07. Te Amo Corazon
08. SST/Brand New Orleans
09. A Million Days
10. The Word
11. Lion of Judah
12. Reflection


so, funk, sst and magnificent are all from this period and -imo, a lot more interesting than some
of the tracks that ended up on those 3 albums.

all the midnights in the world works very well as an opening track for me. it would have been a
funny track to start an album with, especially if prince had decided to put FUNK on an album.

midnights starts of sugar sweet and lulls you into a false sense of serenity, and then it just flows
effortlessly into FUNK which hits you over the head like a ton of bricks, actually getting the album
rolling.

I selected 3 songs from Musicology, 2 from Planet Earth and 7 from 3121.

For me, 11 of the songs were no brainers. I struggled to pick an 12th song, but ended up throwing on Love for lack of anything better.

As for sequencing, I don't know any great way to do it. These are just a collection of random songs, so any way they're put together will feel a bit unnatural. But here is goes:

Side 1:

  1. 3121
  2. Guitar
  3. Te Amo Corazon
  4. Illusion, Coma, Pimp $ Circumstance
  5. Chelsea Rogers
  6. The Word


Side 2:

  1. Musicology
  2. Black Sweat
  3. Fury
  4. Reflection
  5. Love
  6. Get on the Boat

Because Prince was all about condensing four-years worth of material down to a single disc when it came time to "Make a Prince Record."

You think these are his three best labums post 2000?

I can maybe see 3121 being in that category, but to me, Musicology and Planet Earth were his two *weakest* albums post 2000 (excluding NPGMC / internet-only albums). 20Ten might be the only other post 2000 album I'd rank as low as these two.

For me, his best post 2000 albums are TRB, Lotusflow3r and HNR 2.

Even though "Love" is a sparse arrangement, I remember being so drawn to the lyrics. They really spoke to me.

When I first heard the album, Love was immediately my favorite. It so much energy and a great hook. But I quickly grew bored of it. After a month or so, it no longer sounded special to me. Now, if I want to hear a pop / dance song from the album, my go-to is The Word. (@Toejam from the Peach & Black Podcast said something very similiar in his review, where this song started as his favorite by fell out of favor pretty quickly.)

I love the accoustic version. If it was within your rules to substitute that, I would.

It was really easy choosing these. Not all in strict order, but Dear Mr. Man has to be last, and If Eye Was the Man in Ur life has to follow The Marrying Kind. Total length of 49:39, but I've made some edits, such as snipping the end off Musicology after the main vocal ends.
