    The 60s & 70s would've been to easy and the 90s... I was sorta absent. Besides... a lot of guys seem to abhor this decade. You can thank the caveman. :D

    The Pretenders - The Pretenders EP. It features Porcelain, one of most furious pieces of rock 'n' roll around, Cuban Slide, and a nice live version of Precious.
    Duran Duran - Duran Duran. It features an all time great line "you are as easy as a nuclear war"
    Rachel Sweet - Protect the Innocent (1980)

    In many cases, I'll really like only one song from an album:

    Bananarama: He was really saying something from Deep Sea Skiving, and Nathan Jones from Wow
    The Motels: Suddenly Last Summer from Little Robbers
    The Bongoes: Space Jungle from Beat Hotel, which I always follow with the Bangles' Different Light
    Romeo Void: Never Say Never from Benefactor

    Some albums that have an 80's flavor to them were actually made in the late seventies:

    Blondie - Parallel Lines (1978)
    The Motels - The Motels (1979), featuring two songs I really like, Total Control and Celia
