Sign O' The Times

Disadvantages: Some of the songs are a little dated

The opus!

Advantages: Uplifting; thoughful; style-spanning and funky; lyrics printed in full
Disadvantages: The price of the album varies so shop around!

Rainbow children, it's time to rise...

Advantages: Well, it's by Prince, isn't it?!?!
