Prince Album Poll 2018: Results

First, thanks to all the 83 voters! I am very pleased with the turnout and am happy to share the results as a way to celebrate Prince's legacy.

I'm going to take my time a bit with it, posting 2 albums per day initially when counting down the top 20 associated artist albums (of the 35 in total), and then the top 10 Prince non-studio albums (out of 15), and finally the top 39 Prince studio albums one per day.

My pleasure! That way, those who haven't heard the albums (like me with these first two!) can listen to the tracks that are considered the best if they are curious.

I loved Lovesign, which should have been more than a promo.

Good choice for Standing at the Altar as a single, love that song, but alas, suffering from the Prince effect (no proper promotion)

MPLS's beat is awesome. Hope there is a Prince version in the vault...
Gave it a low number, cuz the rest of the album is utter toilet

I love, love, love Mavis' voice, but most songs on this one are sub-par to my ear and even that awesome voice cannot save it for me.

The only one that comes alive is The Undertaker and I kinda like the title song, even though it has that pastiche sound Prince somehow was stuck on from this era onward.

Most of the other are to dull (the slow ones) or too plastic (the dance-y songs) and just do nothing for me.

As much as I like Time Waits For No One, I don't like The Voice at all either. Real disappointment.

I don't think "Hold Me" would have been in the 2017 song poll because it contains no input from Prince.

That's correct. The 2017 song poll only featured songs with Prince input. I agree that the non-Prince tracks on Sheila E. are also quite strong!

Yeah, that was a surprise for me! I had it as my 4th highest associated artist album. It’s proof that everything Prince touched in 1982 turned to gold.

Vanity 6 would absolutely be in my top 5. Better than Apollonia 6 and Ice Cream Castles which I'm guessing will be in the top 10.

If you will, so will I

Well.. the third Sheila E., the first Mavis Staples and New Power Soul are better for starters. cool

(oh, and Apollonia 6 too)

.

These polls are fairly useless of course, other than that they show that Prince's music is so diverse that the people that listen to it are too. It seems we cannot agree on anything.
