Won't post YT links, but Bowie's last two albums are fantastic. Pet Shop Boys' Electric and the new record is great. McCartney's ''Chaoes and creation....'' is in his top5 solo record in my opinion. Iggy's Post-pop depression was pretty good, too.
Interesting thread. I was a teenager in the 80s and the musc of that decade definitely had a deep impact on my musical taste. Several of the bands / artists emerging during that decade are still around today, but I have stopped following most of them. The ones that remain (in my case) are The Cure, Nick Cave, Morrissey and Brian Ferry (to some extent). I never really was a fan of Elvis Costello or Paul McCartney and I have heard the songs of the Beatles more than I need to. When t comes to David Bowie or Leonard Cohen: for me these artists weren't at their artistic peak n the 80s, so I discovered them later and went back to their back catalogue at that point, and went back to their back catalog at that point. I rate them highly, but it s not the same. So in all honesty, Morrissey has done well i my view. Which doesn't mean that his discography was flawless.
