24 Nov 2012, 00:04 by snowy657Here it is - a mega list of the best albums from the 1980's. I have used a ratings system to compile this list. All of the 24k tracks on my ipod are rated 1-5 stars. I have listened to 400-500 albums from the eighties(a lot of these albums several times) so it's easy for me to compile a list like this. There are no compilations or greatest hits on this list. No mini albums or EP's either, an album must have at least seven tracks to feature. In my opinion, there is only one album that I have ever heard that is perfection and every single track on it gets 5 stars. That album is at number one on my list. If you have never heard "Script of the Bridge" then please check it out. You won't be disappointed!
200 The Cult - Love (1985)
199 The Damned - Anything (1986)
198 Pixies - Surfer Rosa (1988)
197 Immaculate Fools - Hearts Of Fortune (1985)

Genre: indie rock
Samples: "Flashover," "Twin Flames" (NSFW), "Valley of the Calm Trees"
Here's the Klaxons story as I understand it: they released their first album and a bunch of singles in 2006-7. Renowned bastion of disreputable music criticism NME liked them a lot and declared them the figureheads of the tenuous "new rave" genre (basically British dance-punk bands that downplay the post-punk influence). The Klaxons got sick of being called this, probably because a lot of the bands that did embrace the "new rave" label were pretty troglodytic (see Hadouken! for the most triumphant example). So they said "fuck it, let's do something entirely different" and ultimately made this album.
It could still be called dance-punk, I guess, if you really want to stretch that term's definitions…
15 Aug 2008, 12:58 by ted_blurnI was thinking maybe of doing something like this when I got 5000 tracks scrobbled, but it's a dull evening and I've got a long download going, so let's go. Here's my current top 50 artists, and where I first encountered them:
1. Nine Inch Nails
Heard Closer on the radio in late 1994 when it cracked the Australian top 10. Took quite a few more years to become a fan though.
They were everywhere on the radio in 1991 and 1992. Of course you've heard a Nirvana song, even if you weren't even born then. As a young kid, all I knew then was that there suddenly seemed to be a lot of good music on the radio.
3. The Clash
Knew about these guys for quite a while, but the first time I was really conscious of "hey, I'm listening to the Clash" was at my brother's 21st. There'd been a mixup with the music and all we had to listen to was a Clash greatest hits album, and Rock the Casbah got played over and over...
