I think I'm a Prince fan now

I listened to Sign O' The Times all the way though for the first time in about 8 months, and I was blown away. Seriously, I was amazed. It kind of rolled off my back the first time out, but this time it stuck. Plus, I already love Purple Rain, so that's two albums by him I love...and I didn't even notice it before.

That's the only albums I have by him though...what should I check out next?

Which is the album with Raspberry Beret?

Prince is great. I think he gets a bad rap cause he's so strange, but musically he's amazing.

Being a Prince fan is a good thing.

I always did like his Diamonds and Pearls album, so you might give that one a try.

Prince is the man.

Is the man, was the man, is the man.

Prince is probably one of the most prolific singer/songwriters of the past 25 years.

Check out his wiki page and you'll see what I mean.

Around The World In A Day, Parade and Diamonds And Pearls are indeed good suggestions.
And even though it's a compilation, I'd also highly suggest The Hits/The B-Sides package (2 CDs of hits, 1 CD of B-sides that are mostly also amazing).
As for studio albums, I also have a weak spot for The Gold Experience (released when he was known as O+->, but it's still Prince to me). But I think that in the end, that stretch from Purple Rain to Sign O' The Times (via Around The World In A Day and Parade) is his best.
