Same here. Of all the decades, this is the easy choice for me.

I like this more than Loveless, actually...

Plan on picking up more Husker records?

the 80s were a great decade for pop music
to think that bands like Talking Heads and Talk Talk once scored hit singles
The Pixies and Sonic Youth creating just about everything we now call 'alternative music' within a few album
Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello
U2 and R.E.M. going from strength to strength
The Police
Fleetwood Mac's Tango in the night

and even though I don't care much for them, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince and George Michael were a lot better then whatever was popular in the 90s

I ALMOST agree but I'm still very torn between the two. Isn't Anything, at first, took months for me to get into, then after a while I just listened to it again and for some reason it all sounded fantastic after I listened to it in little chunks one by one, getting into certain parts of the record then later on 'discovering' another part!

Weirdest way I've ever got into an album but after hearing Loveless first it makes Isn't Anything sound much more accesible, but Loveless is still an incredible record! As I said, I'm torn between the two but god DAMN the 'You Made Me Realise' and 'Feed Me With Your Kiss' EPs can't be beat!

On the subject of Husker Du, hell yes! I've left it a while so I don't completely exhaust their back catalogue like I would with some bands when I was younger. Which would you reccomend??

With all these options, Joshua Tree is still the simple choice.

It is.

And it's so good it says more about the other records listed here than it does about JT.

A great decade. Far ahead of the 90's and 00's.

Joshua Tree. I love tons of music from the decade, but this is the biggest no-brainer for me. I adore this album above all other albums. The things and times this album has helped me through are too legion to count.
