Prince hooked me with 'Soft and Wet' and its been a wonderful addiction ever since. He's shown his creative genius, artistic talent, and sexiness all at once. By far my favorite musical artist. Iconic but eccentric in so many ways. I just love his music!!!

Prince is a mixture of Little Richard, James Brown, George Clinton and of course Prince himself. He has made so many albums it's hard to keep count. He is funky, soulful and a brilliant guitarist. My favourite albums are 1999, Purple Rain, Parade, Sign O the Times, Lovesexy,and Emancipation.

Prince to me is in the same category as Michael Jackson. Only Prince would come a poor second. I have never really got him as an artist, but you cannot take away his talent and originality.

Prince is an impossibly talented musician who covered many different genres always playing with originality and integrity and funkiness! I believe he was so prolific a lot of his albums did not receive the individual attention they deserved. Some are better than others but all worth a stop. His lesser material would be another's masterpiece. He has enough material to keep an avid listener occupied for a long time...

I like Prince so much, I commented twice on Sign O' The Times without realizing... The Purple One was on par with MJ. Pure funky genius.

Prince is amazing. Essential albums include DIRTY MIND, CONTROVERSY, 1999, SIGN O THE TIMES, DIAMONDS and PEARLS, COME, and PURPLE RAIN (of course). I rarely use the word "genius"...but it applies to Prince.
