Albums of the year, in chronological order because there is no daylight between any of these three instant classics:

It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back - Public Enemy
Fisherman's Blues - The Waterboys
Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.

...but my song of that year is "Blackened" by Metallica:



1986 and 1984 are gonna be impossible.   😭

Not going to argue with album, but....hmmmmm….Gigantic? Bone Machine? River Euphrates? Vamos, Cactus. Shit. What an album!
What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

Im going to pretend that Rattle And Hum doesnt exist and give the honour to The Waterboys for their Fishermans Blues album
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world
