Prince Album Poll 2018

Following in the footsteps of last year's song poll in which we counted down our favorite 365 Prince songs, this year I am hosting an album poll.

If you want to participate, have a look at the list of eligible albums here. The link is to a Google Sheet with view only access. However, if you'd like to make use of the spreadsheet, you can make a copy (through the commands File - Make a copy) or download a version as an Excel spreadsheet (through the commands File - Download as).

The list includes all studio, live, compilation, remix, and posthumous releases by Prince, as well as all albums by associated artists in which Prince had involvement in at least half of the songs, bringing the total to 88.

To participate, rate as many albums as you like, whether it be 5 or all 88, on a 0-10 scale, with 10 being the most positive rating and 0 being the most negative rating. You can be as precise as you like, so a rating of 7.18213 works, too! Submit your list of ratings to princepoll2016@gmail.com by November 1st, and I'll count down the results thereafter. I'm happy to take any spreadsheet or list formatted any way you like as long as it is clear what rating you are giving to the albums.

If you are interested, you can also join a Facebook group dedicated to the poll, though this by no means necessary to participate in the poll.

Edit: extended deadline to November 1st

There’s no need to download the spreadsheet. You can supply a list formatted any way you like! I am going with email because I don’t trust that an online poll wouldn’t be spammed with multiple votes by the same person. I suppose that is possible with email as well, but the effort it would take would be greater.

I've added Anthology: 1995-2010 to the list of eligible albums and have made a video describing how to participate.

I have one question. Are we reflecting over the fact that Prince has input with over 80 albums?! Can you, Moonbeam, comprehend the magnitude? Why is he not regarded as the greatest artist, on pure talent alone, again?

Yes, it really is staggering! We are so lucky as fans to have so much to dive into.
