ROFL I had to "grow up" with this junk playing everywhere. The 80's were when hairspray manufacturers made it big! I jumped back in time and refused
to listen to pop at all. The first record I bough myself was Led Zeppelin II.
Not their best album imho but certainly not their worst either. I
recently read a thread here on ATS that illustrated how all Led Zep's big hits such as Stairway to Heaven and many others were actually not theirs at
all but stolen from (mainly black) musicians from the 50's and 60's. I just can't view them with the same respect that I used to but have fortunately
moved on to other things now.
They had a good sound and good musicians but pfff, originality counts for a lot in my book. We can all do covers. ATS
has great musicians and they never cease to blow me away, all original stuff too, no covers.
ATS Rocks, and bangs, wobbles and dubs, in varying
degrees of conventional instruments and electronic ones.
ETA Paul Young (passable) Nik Kershaw, Kajagoogoo, and then my favourite pet hate...Madonna, these were all chart topping crap when I was a teenager.
Need I say more?
