Prince’s best work was with the Revolution. Most everything after that was terrible. My favourite Prince & the Revolution tracks are Mountains, America, DMSR, Erotic City, Alphabet Street, Pop Life, Get Off, Paisly Park, Christopher Tracey’s Parade, and I’ll probably edit more in when they come to me.
Do yourself a favour and skip his movies (especially Grafitti Bridge and Under the Cherry Moon), and my god - the Batman soundtrack in its entirety.

Prince was one of a kind, a true master of his profession.

Prince is just much more funky than MJ. MJ is SO perfectly produced, SO clean, nothing is left to chance. It just lends itself very well to pop and the mainstream.
Prince by contrast is a bit more wild, a little more unpredictable. He's well produced, no question, but there's some spontaneity there.
I had a similar epiphany about Prince a few years back when my Aunt and I danced all through the night to his live concerts.

Prince never toured as much as MJ. But overall he was more talented then MJ he always wrote his own songs and he wrote songs for other artist also. MJ started out writing all his own stuff but then later on had other people write stuff for him. Also Prince could play multiple instruments and I don't think MJ could play any instruments.
