1985 didn't have as many life changingly great records for me as as 84 did, but it was still a pretty great year for music. This Is Big Audio Dynamite, Throb Throb, Tim, and Rain Dogs are all guaranteed spots on my all time favorite albums list, so putting them up here was a no brainer.
Here are my ten picks in artist alphabetical order.
- Big Audio Dynamite - This Is Big Audio Dynamite
- Game Theory - Real Nighttime
- Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians - Fegmania!
- Hüsker Dü - New Day Rising
- The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy
- Naked Raygun - Throb Throb
- R.E.M. - Fables of the Reconstruction
- The Replacements - Tim
- Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
- Yello - Stella
Alright, bring on 1986.
