Some good, interesting Polls recently, but about time we had a few of these damned 'Poll' things for the 'Old Gits' here at HH, so will add 80-83 aswell. Some may well cringe, some may say 'Who The F**k', Some will not care, but Some (hopefully) may go and check some of these top releases out and gain a bit of listening education!!!!. Amongst these are some of my all time 'Fave' albums even after 25 + years of listening pleasure!!!!

It should be noted that although it wasn't the best year for music (sorry Jez :P ) a very, very sexy young child was brought into the world this year. They call it the 'Year of Geoff' nowadays, don't they?

Not surprised mate. You should go and do some homework and check some of these out and give yourself an education - you may be surprised at how good these albums are???? Or maybe not in your case :lol:

Since there was no sign of Kiss' DYNASTY or Judas Priest's UNLEASHED IN THE EAST on this list, I went with Cheap Trick's DREAM POLICE. Cheap Trick were at the top of their game at this time.

Thought I'd put some of the lesser obvious releases on here just to see who has heard of what, plus most here are my personal faves of that year!!!. Saying that, there are some 'Genre' classics on here aswell with New England, Airborne, Axe etc. Just depends on what things you were listening to at the end of the 70's & beginning of the 80's or weather you were even born?? :lol:

I was only 9 to. But I did listen to the radio a lot. I used to get scolded by my mom for changing all her pre-set oldies/doo wop stations to all the local rock stations. :lol:

 

From what I knew of, I liked Styx, Journey, Molly Hatchet and .38 Special, but Cheap Trick is the one I remember most of all.

Flippin heck....why not make it easy for me!!!!! Classic album piled upon classic album there, but with my little twisted way I voted for Aviary (even though I got into them sometime after bands like Axe and Saga) just because I like it's weirdness, plus it's just a top album that gets tons of plays still.

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
