Re: 80's albums that hold up on any level

Every album I have ever liked holds up now, if it was good 30 years ago, then it's still good. It is the same album, after all.
Well, same for me. Which is why I put 'on any level'...meaning it doesn't sound dated (still subjective of course) and that you think it would appeal to a lot of people.

But yes, I agree with your sentiment. *I* love all of my 80's albums, but I see how my Altered Images albums sound much like the time they were made in.

Thomas Dolby is just a frigging genius, and as for Frankie Goes to Hollywood...well, I know they resisted doing so many covers, but it serves to give the album an eclectic feel so between that and Holly Johnson's great vocals, it's a hell of an album.

edit: Not to say "The Golden Age of Wireless" doesn't sound like it wasn't made in the 80's, but there's a hell of a lot more to it than keyboardmania.
