Tight, raw, sexy and exciting... Then and Now!

116 Remain In Light - The Talking Heads
117 You Can Dance - Madonna

119 Spirit of Eden - Talk Talk

This album is considered to be the first post-rock albums. A mix of jazz, (kraut) rock and ambient.

By the way, shame that Joy Division's Closer isn't in this list.

This album and the one that followed it, Laughing Stock, influenced groups like Radiohead, Massive Attack, Portishead, Elbow... Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Green are geniuses.

120 Please - Pet Shop Boys
