#28) Prince - The Hits 2 (released in 1993, I used to have a used cassette of this in high school but bought a used CD copy in college)

I've got to write about Prince here later in the month, so let's just say that this album is way more crucial than The Hits 1, mainly because it grabs the most enjoyable tracks off of some less-than-crucial albums and has a consistently lusty vibe - and bawdy is what this guy does best. Despite the lack of chronological order found here and its relative brevity compared to his prolificness and stature, this album is startlingly consistent and satisfying. Definitely the first Prince purchase I'd recommend (if not my favorite overall).
