Police - Synchroncity / Ghost in the Machine
Prince - Purple Rain
REM - Murmur / Dcoument
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
And, at the other end of the spectrum:
Breakdance : You can do it
(It may not surprise you to know that I couldn't, but it is cathartic to be able to admit amongst friends that I once owned this album.)
I also wonder whether Margaret Thatcher is a more or less divisive figure than Michael Jackson?

Originally posted by FMFits true, thatcher was unable to stop some good music being created in the 80's despite her unleashing her musical foot soldiers - scott,aitken and waterman to destroy music. while america bombed us with poodle haired, power chord playing, cheesy solo ridden boy band soft rock. some gems squeezed through.

[b]i always knew thatcher was to blame for crap 80's music!!!!
There was loads of GOOD music in the 1980s. And there's loads of bad music in every decade distracting from the good.
Name your 10 favourite albums from the decade and prove the '80s Music Was Crap' meme wrong, and get Thatcher off the hook![/b]
Originally posted by Bosse de NageI also liked the Magazine album that came AFTER "The Correct Use of Soap", "Magic, Murder and the Weather (1981)" but I've never met anyone else who likes it and as far as I know it was panned by the critics and dismissed as a disappointing irrelevance ever since.
Honorable mention: The Correct Use of Soap - Magazine
