Top 10 80s albums in the order I see them Googling and a definitive 1

6. Peter Gabriel: So
5. Paul Simon: Graceland
4. Talking Heads: Remain in Light
3. The Clash: London Calling
2. Joy Division: Closer
1. Dinosaur Jr: You're Living All Over Me

It's a nice list.
I'm pretty sure I have London Calling at No.1.
I am actually just discovering Roxy Music despite living through the late 70s and (obviously) all of the 80s. And I'm pretty stunned.

I don't know why people don't like Synchronicity. I played the hell out of it. I guess they don't like it because radio played the hell out it and they don't want to spoil their indie cred.

Yeah, I think it's pretty damn good, I feel like a lot of people have issues with it because it was their most commercially successful and had some of their biggest hits, which automatically makes it a target, but going back and listening to it with fresh(ish) ears decades later, I think it's pretty brilliant stuff and unlike anything anyone else was doing.

Ghost In The Machine is pretty awesome.
Nothing sounds like "Spirits" or "Invisible Sun".
And "ELTSDIM" has fascinated me for years. I don't really like Sting, but I give him a lot of credit for the writing on this album.

I mostly agree with you, but for Fables of the Reconstruction. That album slays, and is probably their best, end-to-end, IMO.

Good list, but here's another ten to make it top 20. Now try to slot them:

- Born in the USA (Bruce Springsteen)
- Back in Black (AC/DC)
- The Joshua Tree (U2)
- Appetite for Destruction (Guns 'n Roses)
- Scary Monsters (David Bowie)
- Straight Outta Compton (N.W.A.)
- Pretenders (Pretenders)
- Eliminator (ZZ Topp)
- Private Dancer (Tina Turner)
- Brothers in Arms (Dire Straits)

Post Re: We Didn't Start The 80s

My '80s top 10 looks something like this:

The Cult - Electric
The Cure - Disintegration
King Crimson - Discipline
Pop Will Eat Itself - This is the Day...This is the Hour...This is This!
Prince - Sign "☮" the Times
Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
Rush - Moving Pictures
Sisters of Mercy - Floodland
Talking Heads - Remain in Light
Tom Waits - Swordfishtrombones

As for Tom Waits, it is hard to choose Rain Dogs or Swordfishtrombones as his best of that decade. I give the edge to Swordfishtrombones because I favor albums like Dark Side of the Moon that are arranged to sound like one long song.

I'd throw The Cure: Disintegration onto my list

I can go ham with great rap albums from the 90s but I haven't listened to much of the 80s staples aside from The Beastie Boys. Frankly, I'm surprised to see most of these names pop up because I so heavily attribute rap to the 90s

My solution is easy. I pick Heart Attack and Vine. All three would likely be in my top twenty of the decade though.

And Frank's Wild Years is pretty great as well, if not as good as those.

To be honest with you, I always hated Licensed To Ill. I thought it was obnoxious at the time. The last thing I wanted in my hip hop was frat boys. I was very hesitant about Boutique but was inevitably won over by the time of the "Bouillabaisse".

In my defense, the Beastie Boys have admitted in interviews that they kinda hate License To Ill too.

Same here. The year it came out it was the official anthem of every meathead dude-bro at my high school. Therefore I hated the BB's by association, and it wasn't until many years later that I could admit to myself and others that they were actually OK.

"Fight For Your Right" is relevant to the Full Metal Jacket conversation, in that meatheads everywhere did not recognize that they were being lampooned by the song.

Yeah, Siren is definitely my favorite. I admire their early work with Eno more than I actually listen to it.

I don't mind parts of License to Ill, I still find the three of them really charming and funny even when they are being exactly the kind of person I don't like. But it is easily my least favorite of their albums (that I've heard). Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hot Sauce Committee...I love all of these, making them one of my very favourite musical artists ever.

My top 10 Metal records of the 80's (limit one per band) would probably look a little something like...

Bathory: Blood, Fire, Death
Celtic Frost: To Mega Therion
Death: Leprosy
Iron Maiden: Somewhere In Time
Kreator: Terrible Certainty
Metallica: Master Of Puppets
Pestilence: Consuming Impulse
Slayer: Reign In Blood
Sodom: Agent Orange
Terrorizer: World Downfall

Still plenty of records from that decade I need to check out, however. Also...

I'm not particularly big on thrash or even metal in general, but Slayer are so good at what they do that they make themselves pretty undeniable. They're pretty much the definition of "commanding respect" for me.

I just really like Slayer.

I am a decent enough fan of other bands in the genre, and have no problem venturing into Black Metal territory either, but Slayer is the one that just rises above all the others. They are the one metal band I have no problem saying I love. In particular, that album.

It's just too bad that they didn't retire a lot sooner and avoid sullying their name with all the dull releases they've been putting out over the past quarter of a century, but they're finally in the middle of their farewell tour currently, so the current version of Slayer Incorporated will soon be out of its misery, thankfully. At any rate, the old stuff remains the thing of metal legends, and very justifiably so.

Thrash is probably tied with Death for my favorite style of metal, but I'm not huge on Black Metal in general (not a fan of those raw-ass productions, and the songwriting often seems to be rather non-entertaining, and listener unfriendly). There are a few exceptions of course, always of the cleaner-sounding, more melodic bands of the genre, especially when it comes to early Dissection, whose sophomore record I loved so much, I had it as my avatar here for quite some time.

My young self gobbled most of these, but I think my tops were Transformers and G.I. Joe. Ahhh, to be young.

Re: Robotech, I remember loving it. Totally loving it. However, recently I decided to check it out (it's available on Amazon Prime) and it didn't go well. Saw about 3 or 4 episodes only.

Can't we come together and embrace the transnational treaty of Second City, nest of both Chicago and Toronto comedic genius, find the unity of fellowship and frivolity, and reconcile over the fact that Mad TV was just the worst?

Yes, we can do this.

And, of course, SNL has islands of brilliance. They are sadly frequently years and even decades apart though. SNL has always been more of an interesting idea, or a state of mind, than a show of much worth beyond the occassional appearance of an Aykroyd or Chase or Radner or Murphy.

I have none, and was very snobby towards SNL because of SCTV. I pretty much ignored the entire Piscopo/Murphy era. Watched it the one season Martin Short was there and then stopped watching again.

Not Necessarialy The News, that was a fun show for a second. Rich Hall and his sniglets eventually made it to SNL.

There was this one NNTN clip. It took footage of some Reagan formal meet-and-greet. Had Ronald looking devilishly happy at the White House front door. They placed the sound of thunderclaps under the press' flashbulbs along with scary pipe organ music, and each time he would greet someone and take them inside, there'd be blood-curdling screams. Then Reagan would return to his perch, looking devilishly satisfied, waiting for the next fly.
