Whit?? This isn't on the list??

I think Paul Simon Graceland is a great album. I was only wee in the 80s but my da was always playing it and now it's still a firm favourite with me.

Cracking album.

Loved this album, no duff tracks on it.

Great cover too.

True, not a duff track

The Chauffeur. Fucking classic.

Personally, Hold Back the Rain is an amazing song and one of my Duran faves. John Taylor, who was no mean bassist, said it was one of the hardest tracks to play live. When you isolate the bass line you can see (hear!) what he means!

Out of that list Appetite for Destruction. 

Favourites at the time where Southern Death Cult's self titled album and Fields of the Nephilm's The Nephilim but the best for me was Pop Will Eat Itself's Cure For Sanity. 

Also enjoyed Madness a lot in those days.

Too many good bands left off the list.

I don't think the Stone Roses album did that well till the early 90s not really a band I'd consider being 80s

Eurythmics and New Order and Bowie should be on the list also didn't Pink Floyd's the wall come out in the 80s?
