Prince sounded sophistacated more often than MJ did. Blood On The DanceFloor was the closest thing MJ had equal to Prince. (I like the video too)

I was thinking of listing that album but I wasn't sure if anyone else in this message board was familiar with it.

^ Soo true!
You simply can't compare them musically.
In the entertainment part I'd say they are pretty equal, although they are so different. Personally I prefer Prince's chaotic sexual dancemoves more than Michael's chronometric calculated synchronies. The only area that MJ wins in is the popularity, but that's not significant.

I prefer Purple Rain to anything Michael Jackson made. Prince.

MJ is so overrated.

How is he overrated? He sings beautifully... If anything he's underrated or should I say his later career is?
Songs like these are what made me a fan in the first place..(I'm sure you haven't heard any of these gems but now is the perfect time to give them a listen.)

So you shouldn't be voting on this poll then... Prince's music is a lot better. MJ's got vocal ability and range on him and that's it, though I think his voice got a lot worse around Man in the Mirror-era (guessing it was all the surgeries).

Prince is a musical monster that is overlooked by so many ..It's a shame -_-
I actually love his outtakes more than the songs that makes most of his albums. I can't say the same for any other artist/band ..That dude lives and breathes music and you can tell by the finished/unfinished product.

He was just another pop star. I used to love him when I was a child but it's just straightforward pop music. The record sales don't mean anything to me. His unthreatening, catchy music left loads of space for people to be bedazzled by his weird personality and lifestyle.

He was good at what he did as is evident in the record sales but I do think he's overrated.
