Best Music Albums - Year By
1. Frankie Goes To Hollywood:
Welcome To The Pleasuredome
brought to the world a new way of making pop music. Unfortunately, the inspiration only
lasted for one album - this one. Classics are "Relax", "War" and
2. Thompson Twins: Into The Gap
filled with cool pop songs like "Hold Me Now" and "Doctor Doctor". A
touch of genious they never since found.
3. Nik Kershaw: The Riddle
debut album was followed by another pack of great pop songs. Even today I still think
Kershaw's style is unique.
4. Bryan Adams: Reckless
||By far the
best rock album of the year. Bryan Adams found the right mix of great songs and rock
5. Don Henley: Building The Perfect
||Henley's most commercial
album containing great songs like "The Boys Of Summer" and "All She Wants
To Do Is Dance".
6. Alphaville: Forever Young
Japan" was one of the biggest hits of 1984. This was the album filled with the same
kind of songs.
7. U2: The Unforgettable Fire
||An album somehow
difficult to get to know. It takes a while to really open up. Contains the single hit
"Pride (In The Name Of Love)".
8. Ultravox: Lament
||The last album where
Ultravox really shone. Contains "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" but also much
better songs than this.
9. TV-2: Nutidens Unge
||The album that really
made TV-2 a househeld name in Denmark. This is were they found their true style and since
just refined it.
10. Talk Talk: It's My Life
||Talk Talk is at the
height of their career popularity-wise with singles like "It's My Life" and
"Dum Dum Girl". After this, it all become much more serious and ambitious.
