A "true fan" in my eyes is someone to treat with pity. I mean seriously who likes just one thing that much? Life's a rainbow, it'd be a waste to just look at the purple all the time.

Wow, you nailed it. I love the last line. wink

You can't be serious, especially with 1999.

We March. It has "skip me please" sign over.

'Now'. That was always awful too. The invention of the CD really caused some horrible bloated albums. I'm glad in the last decade he cut that back and we got some solid, shorter albums with more focus.

eek "Now" is a contender for a top 10 Prince song for me. I guess we all have different preferences!

As for the topic, I'm not sure how to categorize a song as a "clunker", so I'll give my list of albums where are all songs are above a rating of X/10.

All songs 8.5+:

1999

8+:

Controversy

7.5+:

Purple Rain
The Gold Experience

7+:

Dirty Mind
Parade
Lovesexy

6+:

Sign o' the Times
One Nite Alone
PlectrumElectrum
HitnRun: Phase Two

5.5+:

Symbol
The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale

5+:

Batman
Come
The Truth
NEWS
3121
Lotusflow3r
20Ten

That's my rating of my least favorite song ("Slow Love"). The 6+ indicates that I rate all of the songs at least a 6/10. I rate most of the songs a 9 or more.

I didn't know the songs "Arrogance" and "The Flow" from the symbol album were held in such high regard. I always considered those tracks the low point of that album--clunkers.

To each their own.

That's the beauty of Prince's music, however ATWIND is the worse of the Classic Prince era albums and one of the least played in my collection. Only two songs I liked were PP and RB and songs like Condition of the Heart is like nails on chalkboard TO ME. My wife loves the song so over the last 27 years I have learned to tolerate the song.

I heard the alternate version of the song ATWIAD and loved it. I also like those songs played live.

To each their own, in the real world that does not exist that's some Political Correctness bullshit. Either you're with us or you are against us, not middle ground here. cool

gold is clunker free ???? bwahahahahahahahahaahahaahaha

1999 - SOTT

The Family

Right?! Now, We March, and Shy are terrible songs. I will listen to them if I've got the album playing but they are cringe worthy.

I'd say that the albums with no clunkers are 1999-SOTT no doubt then you've got Lovesexy and TRC. I personally would throw The Truth on there too. Musicology and 3121 are almost clunker free but not quite.

Wow. Parade has finally grown on me. I've been listening to it a bit recently and I keep coming back to it. I don't even mind Venus De Milo now.
Must be something in the water we drink.
