My personal favourite album Prince ever released. This kaleidoscopic double album captures Prince at the peak of his studio craft and holds many of his greatest songs as a result.

Track Picks:
Sign 'O' the Times
Starfish and Coffee
Slow Love
If I Was Your Girlfriend
I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
It's Gonna Be a Beautiful Night
Adore

Another all-timer from Prince who has created his most restless work yet. This is one double-album music lovers cannot afford to miss, and my second favourite from the legend behind the incredible "Purple Rain". My favourite track here is the androgynous, introspective "If I Was Your Girlfriend".

Amazing album. Changed my whole outlook on Prince when I first heard it. Made me prefer him over Michael Jackson, though I still love MJ. Great album. One of the best, and his best IMO.

Massive album in terms of its length. Large diversity that are packed with great tracks like Adore, I Could Never Take the Place, and If I Was Your Girlfriend. Leaves me amazing how Prince wrote, performed, and produced much of the record

Prince's first album after abandoning The Revolution and in my opinion his best. The 80s weren't a great time for music from my perspective but this is definitely an outlier and my favorite album from that decade

Probably Prince's best album. As with, purple rain, the CD needs a remaster, but you can't argue with the quality of the music. Prince was obviously seriously inspired at this moment. Essential eighties album.
