I’ve been feeling this album a lot lately, I love it’s dark undertone and how unapologetically explicit he gets.
.
His 90’s stuff is so divisive for me. He moved so quickly and every album had such different intentions.
I would say Love Symbol competes with this being his best from the 90’s. It just sounds fantastic. The NPG is in rare form the entire record.
.
But Come is great! Come -> Space -> Pheromone -> Loose! -> Papa is a conundrum of sensual, dark and sometimes disturbing imagery that only Prince could pull off. Plus add in the whole 1959-1993 Prince is Dead planted on the album cover...and yet it still manages to function in its dysfunction. Then he finishes the whole ordeal with Orgasm? Who the fuck else would do that?
.
My Mom bought me this from a garage sale when I was 15, and it was the first of his 90’s stuff I ever got into past Diamonds & Pearls. If the weather is gloomy, and I still want to feel some grooves, this is my go-to album.

Well, if that's the end of the thread, there's no point in replying now, is there?
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

Not even Orgasm?

You never skip an orgasm. EVER.

I love come too, and I also loved Prince's album when it came out.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

lol can't disagree.
Even though the OP closed the thread I may as well say; I love Come (the album) but I'd put it behind Love Symbol and TGE (those 2 I can't seperate).

Not by a long shot, for me. I do like it faily well, but any album that makes Orgasm seem excrutiatingly bad gets demerits. I prefer Gold, Emancipation, Exodus, and Graffiti Bridge ( for it's classic songs - Come has none except for Dark).

I loved it then & love it now. Far better than Gold IMO.
As for his 90s lps I also love the Symbol album, The Truth, Exodus & Newpower Soul.

the 90’s saw prince release the corniest most cringeworthy music of his career. Come with all it’s flaws along with The Truth, was a breath of fresh air from that cornball 90’s music. It’s by far his best 90’s era music.
