    Some people think they don't like 1980s music? Tsk.


    1980s albums that everyone should have

    Let's go.




    [​IMG]


    Talking Heads
    Remain In Light


    Brian Eno, David Byrne, The Heads nick some Fela Kuti, add tapes and treatments for the city. Crazy nervous afro-electro-geek-chant-funk starry summer nights, hot tub and friends. Tequila, limes, cigarette papers. Or maybe in a car going someplace together. Behind the wheel of a large automobile.

    Am I the only one who has no interest in Metallica whatsoever. I think they are the most annoying band ever.

    Ozzy! Don't know what I like more, the music or the album art. Wore the T-shirt out years ago.

    For the rockers in you:
    Metallica - & Justice for All
    Bon Jovi - (forgot the album with: 99 in the shade; recorded in 88 release in 1990/91 still has 80's flava)
    WhiteSnake - WhiteSnake.
    Def Leppard - hysteria (yes they suck; drummer is incredible)
    Kiss - the album with the makeup off just because they did and Stanley stopped swinging like a girlie man.

    Sorry if these are 90/91/92 albums; high schools where such a blur and wasted time listening to these to get girls.

    Oh and the original band members hat produced "sleep now in the fire" gets honorable mention.

    The music on these albums wasn't bad, but the cover art itself is awesome :cool:

    I actually prefer Blizzard of Ozz and Bark at the Moon. But this one is still good.

    Excellent taste in music.

    I like those too. I couldn't really choose a favorite out of them. I have them all.

    Released in the 80's, but I didn't get into their music until the 90's. This is one of my favorites.

    Okay, Rumors is a little before 1980, but Fleetwood Mac was a popular band through most of the 80's and I like this album cover. :)
