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

There are certain 80s albums I still find enjoyable but which sound a bit dated because of certain "faddish" musical flourishes, most notably the synthesizer.

That being said, there are many more records which don't sound dated at all because they were done by enduring artists who either defined genres or never got too faddish.

For example: U2, REM and Springsteen all had huge albums in the 80s but I wouldn't consider any of their music dated.
