6. DURAN #2 and U2 #6 For the 1981 poll, we received nearly 25,000 total votes naming more than 200 different albums, with the top five vote-getters more than 1,000 votes apiece. How is The Sound – “From the Lion’s Mouth” not higher here? Second Layer – World Of Rubber That is a weak album. This list may not reflect recent changes (learn more). 35. Desmond Simmons – Alone On Penguin Island You misread my comment. One of those tweener albums, should it be ranked in 1980 as it was released in the UK in September of 1980? BUY IT: Amazon.com (CD, digital, vinyl), iTunes (Digital), BACKSTORY: The Bunnymen cracked the U.K. Top 10 with their second album, which was produced by Hugh Jones after musical differences led the band to dump its Crocodile producers. U2’s ‘October’ isn’t that great, so just because they are ‘U2’ doesn’t mean they need to be in the top 10 each time. This Jamaican reggae band had been around for 10 years by the time they released this, their 5th album. 3. It would be really interesting to do a follow-up poll with albums that didn’t make the ballot but have had renewed interest in the past decade. It wouldn't surprise me if many of the Screaming songs were already in development at this point, but were held back for inclusion on the more thematic Screaming album, while the lighter songs were pulled in for this one.
39. SINGLES: “Dreaming of Me,” “New Life,” “Just Can’t Get Enough” Thanks a lot guys, I’m still in therapy. 9.

Disappointing top ten. 38.
27. 25,000 votes is mind-blowing. For the 1981 poll, we received nearly 25,000 total votes naming more than 200 different albums, with the top five vote-getters more than 1,000 votes apiece. How many of these albums are voted on by reputation and not their musical merit at the time of it’s release? BUY IT: Amazon.com (CD, digital, vinyl), iTunes (Digital), BACKSTORY: On their fourth album, the Banshees spotlighted John McGeoch’s guitar work and the percussion of drummer Budgie. They're still around, here's a clip from "The House That I Call Home" from a SXSW show recently: Sure, it's not the same level as the classic debut, but it's on par with anything else they did. It’s a college rock oriented site. On the other hand, Athens, GA band The Method Actors recorded all their EPs and amazing double album in London and stayed there for a year. No Reply At All, Man on the Corner, and of course the title track: One of the few songs that I remember hearing at the time was the classic title track to Joan Jett's debut album, "I Love Rock 'n' Roll.". I was quite pleased to see The Cure’s Faith, my favourite, in nº1. Doll By Doll – Doll By Doll Today we unveil the results of Part 2 of our year-long Best of the ’80s feature, an ambitious, year-by-year poll of Slicing Up Eyeballs’ readers to determine just what were the best albums of each year of the 1980s — and then, when that’s all said and done at the end of 2013, we’ll run a monster best-of-the-decade poll to hash out the overall champs. One of the best years for music in my opinion. PRODUCER: Colin Thurston (album) Blue and Gray; Blue Nun (album) Blue Rue; Blythe Spirit; Bob Welch (album) Bobby and the Midnites (album) Body Talk Muzik; Boonoonoonoos; Brasil (1981 album) Breaker (Accept album) Breakin' Away (album) Breaking All the Rules (Peter Frampton album) Brothers of the Road SINGLES: “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “We Got the Beat” Opposition – Breaking The Silence Kicked off by the best guitar riff of 1981, "Start Me Up" was just another classic Stones rock song. The results of a poll are the results of a poll. Face Value by Phil Collins, 1. We’ve also got our first tie in the Top 10, with Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Go-Go’s earning the same number of votes to each finish No. OMG..
Roky Erickson And The Aliens – The Evil One The cover art was designed by once and future guitarist Porl Thompson. 12. Opposition – Breaking The Silence 5. 1. I’m not sure “Rio” and Dream Syndicate’s “Days of Wine and Roses” were on the same playlists. – T.S.O.L. See also 1981 in music. 10.
My question is how long they’ll continue to appear in the year-by-year polls, as after a point they really weren’t “college rock” anymore by most definitions. Doll By Doll – Doll By Doll It’s a blast to see them all in context here, remember everything that was going on at the time. See Billboard's rankings of this year's most popular songs, albums, and artists. 24. Seeing Duran Duran at #2 makes a long suffering Duranie such as myself quite happy. I’ve been a huge Cure fan for years, but the idea of a I was referring to the top ten. 15.
Most famous for his duet with JD Souther on "Her Town Too" and for the live standard "That Lonesome Road.". The Adventures of Kaptain Kopter & Commander Cassidy in Potato Land, After All These Years (Mickey Newbury album), Blood on the Bricks (Iron City Houserockers album), Breaking All the Rules (Peter Frampton album), Checkmate (Joe Pass and Jimmy Rowles album), Dedicated (The Marshall Tucker Band album), Dexterity (Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons album), https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:1981_albums&oldid=947100931, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 24 March 2020, at 09:17. Japan – Tin Drum Such as what happened in this poll. This one also got started in the mid 70s and had its biggest album in 1981. 4. PRODUCER: Mike Hedges and The Cure PRODUCER: Martin Rushent and The Human League The best songs are the title track, and "The Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful", but there isn't a bad song here. Siouxsie, The Furs, Devo, The Sound, The Cramps, Killing Joke, Split Enz, Human League, Comsat Angels…Yeah, all those bands/albums sucked and are best forgotten. PRODUCER: Siouxsie and the Banshees and Nigel Gray It also has really creepy, disturbing lyrics. Bauhaus – Mask This category has the following 8 subcategories, out of 8 total. That's not this time for me, but I still appreciate what it's trying to do. 6. Here’s what I wrote about the two double albums, and my own list of faves that didn’t make the top 100. https://fastnbulbous.com/the-method-actors-the-suburbs-double-whammies-in-1981/, 1. The single's release marks the band's first public use of the "New Order" moniker, which they would retain for the remainder of their career. My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is leaps and bounds more advanced and excellent than Speak and Spell. 26. 6. Wah! The Squeeze had their first US hit with often-covered, Paul Carrack vocaled, "Tempted": The third album by this band out of Oakland, California. "Start Me Up" was recorded in 1975 for the Black and Blue album, but wasn't quite ready to be included. Polyrock – Changing Hearts Why is Television Personalities’ “And Don’t The Kids Just Love It” on both the 1980 and the 1981 list? Siouxsie & The Banshees – Juju Another tough year with too many great albums to limit myself to 10.
SINGLES: “Fire,” “Gloria” Manuel Göttsching – E2-E4 I know that from 1982 forward, I’m going to be a lot more circumspect in my voting, and whether I’m being drawn to sentimental favorites vs. what I recall going on in the playlists. TV21 – A Thin Red Line 5. BAND: Siouxsie Sioux, Steven Severin, Budgie, John McGeoch 29. Sunnyboys – Sunnyboys I never listened to Faith as much as I ought to going by folks votes on this here project. Can’t complain about Faith being no.
La Dusseldorf – Individuellos Duran Duran are going to continue to place high because their fans will vote in any poll they are involved in regrardless. BUY IT: Amazon.com (CD, digital), iTunes (Digital), BACKSTORY: The debut from New Order, released about 18 months after the suicide of Ian Curtis ended Joy Division and just weeks following that band’s posthumous compilation Still. 6. It’s just one of those songs that’s able to make you get up and dance while seriously disturbing images parade past your mind’s eye.
This is the people’s choice poll. 24. Somehow its appropriate though, as the Suburbs never got the recognition they deserved. 34. One of the great song titles of all time: "The KKK Took My Baby Away", The Clash were not lacking in initiative, that's for certain, as they released a TRIPLE album in early 1981. – Nah=Poo, The Art Of Bluff Seeing Duran Duran at #2 as a music fan makes me scratch my head a little. In 2003, the album was ranked number 334 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. This is a good, fun project BUT… Holly And The Italians – The Right To Be Italian
23. The Swimming Pool Q’s – The Deep End Ghost in the machine Every single one of these LPs sucks(apart from the Bunnymen), “Every single one of these LPs sucks(apart from the Bunnymen) Allied forces. This is one of the best of the movement, the 4th album by Saxon. It was released in ’81.
