    Muso journalists are so great at rewriting history. I distinctly remember the NME review for the Stone Roses LP, 7 out of 10, nothing special they said. Fast forward a year and it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Totally agree with Tony L on this one, nothing you wouldn't name if pressed for best 30 albums of the 80s. And hey, Dare is good but Travelogue roasts it.

    Totally agree re Travelogue, it's a classic

    If you ever have the pleasure of seeing Gabriel live you will likely get to see him play piano and sometimes the flute, but his keyboard skills are right up there with many of the best, he also understands the textures of music far better than nearly any other mainstream rock musician I have ever encountered. If you watch the documentary on the making of his fourth album you will see what I mean.

    I nearly added Violator to my list before checking the release date, I too though it was 1989.

    It's a shame Rolling Stone didn't check London Calling's release date before adding it to their list

    Although I think the US release may well have been 1980

    Just a shame I can't have it in my list :(

    I found the 80s a bit shit. REM, The Pogues, Tom Waits and the Fall got me through it.

    Just qualifying for the 80s,

    Hawkwind Levitation
    A brilliant combination of Hawkwind and Ginger Bakers drumming
