Best Albums of The 80s With Special Guest Suzanne Mattaboni

People often get their music digitally these days, so many bands don’t need to put much effort into the overall album, instead, they think about the singles. But, back in the day, a lot of bands would put out an album designed for the overall listening experience. In this episode of The 80s and 90s Uncensored Jamie and Milo are joined by author Suzanne Mattaboni to discuss the best albums of the 80s.

I’m not aware of that version of the song. I’ll check it out.

Both of us are big Kate Bush fans. Good choice.

Yep. They have a very different sound from the early stuff to the later music. Yet all held together by Robert Smith to make it the Cure’s sound.

And since nobody else seems to be be writing here. I mostly like songs from the 80s but artists I enjoy are Sade, Everything But The Girl, The Smiths, early U2 albums (War), and some songs by Sting and Kate Bush.

Prince is an artist I don’t seem to get. I don’t even have an opinion about him. I heard very few songs and didn’t like it. Don’t care for Purple Rain and I don’t even know what Purple Rain is. Adel Tawil, a German singer, referenced this song when he sang ”and I dance in the purple rain” (in German of course) in his song ”Lieder” [songs], where the entire song lyrics basically consists of songtitles translated into German. I like some songs by the Police, I prefer ”Ghost in the Machine” (1981)

Yeah, great to hear the love for ”Disintegration” and The Cure. Very atmospheric tune. Yeah, let’s talk about feeling depressed about turning 30 or 35. These are the days I dread. I didn’t get too deep into the Cure discography yet unfortunately but I also like ”Wish” a lot and certain songs of the ”P-Album” like ”A hundred years” are really good. As with every long-existing band, it’s best to pick out the stuff you like because they obviously change their style a lot during their 30+ years.

Nice episode. I admit I’m not a big fan of the 80s music but ”Everybody wants to rule the world” is definitely one of the best songs of the world. I actually prefer ”Head over heels” from Tears for Fears, it was featured in the movie ”Donnie Darko” and it’s amazing. ”Shout” is also good, but my #3 of T4F.
