This is a hard one. I'll have to go with Lovesexy since I can tolerate 2 tracks on The Black Album. I like 3 or 4 on Lovesexy.

I think Prince made the right decision by not releasing TBA in late 1987 as planned.Lovesexy is a superior album.I do,however,think he made a few marketing/promotion mistakes with Lovesexy....posing nude on the album cover (which kept many people from buying the album) and choosing one of the weaker tracks,”Glam Slam”,to be the second single.

Lovesexy was a throw away quickie album inspired by guilty feelings that surfaced while on drugs ... everyone gets the theme ... its just got a lotta overworked filler and marks a real drop in production values ... prince even noted that he could never get a good “sound” out of paisley park and it shows on this record ... production aside .. the songs just don’t hold up .. i prefer when 2 are in love to stay on the black album .. eye no is great but hardly a new song ... alphabet is a fun tune that suffers from perhaps his thinnest drum sound recorded to date .. scarlet pussy and take this beat are better than the rest of the half over baked album .. black album rivals dirty mind in relentless uncompromising nasty funk work outs ... had it been released it may not have had a hit single but would have continued his streak of untouchable outstanding records ... lovesexy is a low point and marks the end of his golden era with a limp thud

That's exactly how I feel about Lovesexy.

nothing on TBA is as great as Anna Stesia, arguably an all time top ten or top five track.


nod "Anna Stesia" is easily one of my Top 10 favorite Prince songs....a brilliant track

a funny memory: I remember many years ago,we had a thread on Lovesexy and there was some confusion about a line in the title track.Was Prince saying "U want me 2 swim in your love sea" or is it "U want me 2 swivel in your love seat?" lol

Lovesexy.

Black album is "cool", like a collection of B-sides to SOTT, but Lovesexy is just something else altogether.

Lovesexy = Greatness.
Of all his albums, I still can listen to it from start to finish without skipping a track. It touches my soul in a way his other creations cannot. Anna Stesia to Positivity to Lovesexy to Dance On - all of it, I adore. 💜

Having said that, I enjoy the Black Album, but it does not feel full and complete to me. I skip tracks on this one. However,
Le Grind, SupercaliF., Rock Hard., Bob George - are my songs! 😎

On TBA.my favorites are "Superfunkycalifragisexy" and "Rock Hard In A Funky Place".These songs are wild and outrageous biggrin the other tracks are OK,but a few songs go on too long.Imo,"Bob George" is silly and contrived.

Your answer doesn´t match the question.

It´s Lovesexy vs The Black Album not those two against any other album.

well...one reason is, because I can be... I am just exercising my 1st amendment rights. You HAVE heard of that before? Right? I have been a Prince fan for over 35 years. Both albums are ok/good, but that is IMO .

Doesn't the First Amendment refers to restrictions specifically on Congress to silence you? It's about the government and you. lol.

Jesus Christ the quality of content being posted here is circling the drain HARD.

Are we really down to:

"I think both albums are overrated"

"GTFO. You're a non fan for not liking these records. Stop posting"

"Help...HELP! My freedom of speech is being violated on a dying website!"

"Well, actually, if you read the Constitution I believe you'll find..."

...

We can do better than this.

Dude. Get over yourself, go have a beer, go for a work out or get laid. Stat. People like you get all worked up if someone has an opinion that you don’t agree with. I am entitled to have an opinion. Correct? A dying website? Dude I will smoke whatever you are! #foh lol
