When Phase I came out I was so mad at Prince. I thought that it was a lazy hack job and I roasted him for it on here. On 1/23/16 Prince and the DJ played a bunch of songs from Phase 1 at a Paisley Dance party and it completely changed my view of the album. There are some bad songs on there like Aint About to Stop, but I now have a new appreciation for other songs like 1000 X'sO's, Like a Mack, June, Shut it Down, etc. It was an experimental album for him and it did push fans to open our minds to something different. I probably work out to this album more than any other Prince album, so I hesitate to put it on the list.

I don't like instrumental music to begin with, so certainly with a voice as beautiful as Prince's his instrumental albums are automatically his worst to me. So Kamasutra, NEWS, C-Note and Xpectation are his worst.

But if I have to choose from the other ones:

1. Diamonds & Pearls

2. Plectrum Electrum

3. Hit 'n' Run Phase 1

There are some boring albums like Musicology, The Vault and One Nite Alone, but I'm kind of meh about them. My top 3 have elements I really dislike (1: **** M, 2: No other people on Prince albums with lead vocals please, 3: the production)

It boggles my mind that people mention The Black Album & The Gold Experience in this thread.

I thought for sure MPLSoUND would be one of the first albums mentioned, but you and I are the only ones to post it.

Actually, I forgot this one smile

I wouldn't dismiss someone's work like this.

There are no bad Prince albums, yet some are better than others.

I feel Prince was very bad at configuring albums so when he had help by the A&R team at Warners his albums flowed perfectly.

Sadly I feel Prince never accepted criticism or advice. Sometimes opinions from friends can help a great deal.

That's why the OP didn't ask for bad albums, he asked for least favorite.

The three that immediately spring to mind are Emancipation, 20Ten, and Hit n Run Phase 1.
