Overview

While the collections The Hits 1 and The Hits 2 offer a hearty, 36-song career retrospective for the Artist once again known as Prince, the 17-song The Very Best of Prince gives fans an equally enjoyable hit-and-run overview. Featuring Prince Roger Nelson's greatest Warner Bros. hits from 1978 to 1993, the disc includes No. 1 songs such as the emotionally charged groove of "When Doves Cry," the frenzied, electric-guitar-driven "Let's Go Crazy," and the funk-pop winner "Kiss," as well as his first No. 1 R&B single, 1979's"I Wanna Be Your Lover." The disc also includes Prince classics such as the seductive "Little Red Corvette," the apocalyptic party jam "1999," and the erotic thumper "Get Off." The only weak link is the underwhelming "Thieves in the Temple," taken from the soundtrack to Prince's disastrous film, Graffiti Bridge. That song also appears on The Hits 1 and could have been easily replaced by The Love Symbol Album's naughty "Sexy M.F." or by Parade's deliciously funky "Girls and Boys." Even so, the disc ends on an original note with Diamonds and Pearls's bluesy masterpiece "Money Don't Matter 2 Night." Michael Jackson may have been crowned the King of Pop, but Prince will always be the Royal Badness of rock 'n' soul.
