Parade is very good, though quite 'different', but a must have.

LoveSexy is another must have, the last "authentic" prince cd.


actually they are all worth buying if you really like those u
mentioned.

just go one at a time. perhaps chronological order is a good
idea too. just work your way from very old to the newer ones
and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Welcome Axle wink

"GOLD" 4 sure if your coming at Prince from a rock background as your usermame suggests, and also "Dirty Mind", "Controversy" even "Chaos&Disorder" could do you a turn. The second album "Prince" is also very underated and has Bambi and Why you wanna treat me so bad, 2 classics but youve probably got them on the hits cd cool
\o/\o/ ° The Breakdown = Best Prince song for 20 years

Go get Batman and Parade, definitely. Parade's my favorite, and Batman has just fantastic pop songwriting.

You might just buy them all before Chinese Democracy comes out... biggrin wink

Agree with the live stuff.4 me , the best studio record is the Rainbow Children,but 2 get in2 it,U have 2 like jazz moods , and not 2 be schoked by the religious meaning of the lyrics.As I'm french, I don't pay attention 2 the lyrics, and the music sounds free , but it's just a matter of taste, but I think U should try that Xperience.

You couldn't go wrong with any of the recommendations I've read so far. While not Prince albums, I would recommend the first 2 albums by The Time (The Time & What Time Is It?). The first one is basically Prince and Morris and is some great funky music. And there's some great music on the second one too. The drum line for 777-9311 kicks ass.

Come
Batman
Newpower Soul (Don't believe the bad press...it's a fantastic album!)
Emancipation and Crystal Ball are loaded with great music!
Around The World In A Day
Parade
Black Album

Controversy is sort of a "lesser" 1999.
Stay as far away from Dirty Mind as you can get...it's easily his weakest album!

Just say "NO" to cow mucus consumption!
