Was there a single 70s rock artist that didn't have an incredibly dodgy/ embarrassing 80s trajectory?
What? It's a very basic word. How are you so intimidated by 4 syllable words that you see them as some kind of intellectual posturing?
Dylan is more 60s really, and the 80s were the absolute pits for him
Nah their synth stuff is mostly crap
The singles from Let's Dance are okay but the album itself is boring dreck and it only got worse from there
I can stand 80s Bowie, but 90s Bowie just sounds like absolute shit to me. And I feel bad because he was really happy with what he was doing in that time, more so than the 80s, but the 90s are the only Bowie albums I have barely revisited.
Rush were embarassing as fuck in the 80s. They started off well, but ended with shit like Power Windows and Presto. Geddy Lee had a fucking mullet.
Devo. They created the image everyone wanted to follow for the 80's, and didn't suck ass. In they late 70's they were like art rock punk, then they went to electric pop punk. But even later down the line with "Total Devo" and "Shout" They kinda lost their touch.
Beat is like a darker discipline, I actually like that one a lot. Three of a Perfect Pair isn't as good, the A side has mostly poppier sounding Discipline songs (not bad) but the B side is all instrumental, like a less interesting B side to Low. I'd give them a shot at least, I think all their albums through THRAAK are worth listening to.
are you not? most of his 80's releases are classics
let me repeat: most of his 80's releases are classics
Public image limited. They started the decade off very strong with flowers of romance and made some fun pop records like album and 9.
Bruce was great all through the 80's.
Duke and Abacab are awesome albums, can't deny it. Two of my favourites (although i prefer The Lamb, and Wind and Wuthering)
Even s/t had Home by the Sea, and Mama was a good track. Invisible Touch is one of the catchiest and best 80s pop albums out there, even if I don't like it much i can recognize that
