Howdy there, underlings! Go ahead and put down your tools, wipe the soot off your brow, and come hither. Your deep-pocketed, hard-fisted supervisor has some thoughts about board games, and guess what? You’re gonna listen to ‘em. You will, of course, need to make this time up later.

"For You" is a good record, it kind of gets short shrift because you move the needle up one year and you get an album that starts off with "I Wanna Be Your Lover", which is just about a perfect song as has ever been written. It's easy to forget the lesser Prince because the better Prince is so fucking transcendent. If you go through some of that late 90s/early 2000s stuff for example, there are a lot of killer tracks that barely register on any "best of Prince" list. The sheer volume of music is one thing, but the relatively consistent high quality of his catalog makes it where it seems like the gulf between "For You" and "Purple Rain" is broader than it seems. Right now, my big Prince jam is "Electric Chair" from the mostly panned Batman album. Yeah, "Batdance" is really stupid. But there are some great Prince numbers on that record too. The other one is "P Control". Only Prince could pull that one off.

Totally--if For You was made by anyone else we would talk about it a whole lot more.
