I always hear people saying you can make an amazing mix tape from Prince's later stuff. Spotify actually allowed me to try this as an experiment. It's bollocks. Most -- literally almost all -- of the post-80s stuff is turgid, horrible. I got 10 tracks together that I really liked, and maybe could've added a couple of others, but that was it. I mean, this would be a really good album, but it's not a lot for 25 years of highly prolific music making by a pop genius:

Yeah, my attitude to all of those ones ranged from “don’t like it” to “hate it”. Total stodge.

Weird. Dirty mind is the best Prince album, but diamonds and pearls and symbols are both good albums.

I think I've got affection for those two I'm particular cos I got them when they came out and listened to them to death.

Well, I did pick two from the former and three from the latter in my ten.

If feet were a little smaller like 11.75" then the six-foot cutoff would include current 5'10-ers, 5'11-ers. It's terrible, these arbitrary number systems, their tyranny over our lives, our frames. Completely arbitrary

Oh you scored 9 points 9 assists 9 rebounds? Scrub. You scored 10x10x10? That's a triple double, congratulations, let's fetch the medals
