Instead of carving divine sexfunk for the 21st century, Prince Rogers Nelson has spent most of the '90s desecrating his good name. So it is with some trepidation we approach 'Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic' ... ...Only to be gladly surprised, when the multi-tracked phalanx of helium-infused Artists trill out the title track refrain like some purple-velvet clad gospel choir....

Prince - The Very Best of Prince: Wikipedia Album Entry
The Very Best of Prince is a Best of compilation album by Prince, released in 2001. It contains most of his commercially successful singles in their radio edits, including the U.S. #1's "Let's Go Crazy", "When Doves Cry", "Kiss" and "Cream".
The album cover is somewhat a point of contention with some fans. It consists of 9 photos in a square shape, but the selection of photos is odd and does not really represent the album's contents. Two of the nine photos are from albums from which no songs were selected. Six photos were from the Parade and Graffiti Bridge albums, which only contributed one song each.
The collection does not include the US #1 hit "Batdance", most likely due to licensing of the character 'Batman', Allmusic supposes that Batman album is being unofficially written out of his discography.
