First, I agree with Fizzing not once, but twice. Now I find myself agreeing with Dr. Teeth on something. My gosh, what is the world coming to?

I just thought of a couple others (how could I possibly forget the genius that is Leonard? Poet, philosopher, mystic, journeyman, countryman, comedian, lady's man, novelist, communicator of emotion beyond language...yet none of these at all...purely gifted by the wrath of his own sorrow, and lost inside the All, some would say lost inside the beautiful paradoxes of his intentions -- okay that's a little over the top ):

Leonard Cohen: Various Positions
Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man

The Tempest

Whether or not Zen Arcade is worth it may depend on what you've been weaned on. In other words, you don't go directly from mother's milk to steak. If you don't have any Husker Du, I think the one to start with is Candy Apple Grey.

U2 - Joshua Tree but I love all the 80's U2 albums including October.

Non U2 -
Peter Gabriel - So
Tears for Fears - Songs from the Big Chair
Depeche Mode - Violator

I also listened to the Smiths, Cure and REM and had more than one albums from these bands, don't remember my favorite.

Best U2 album:
Unforgettable Fire

Non U2 album(s):
Public Enemy - Nation of Millions
REM - Murmur
Replacements - Let It Be, Tim
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
Blue Nile - Hats
De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising
G'n'R - Appetite for Destruction
and any Springsteen album

It sucks that when people think of 80's music the first to come to mind is all that crap that VH-1 plays on their big 80's flashbacks, when a ton of great music like Public Enemy, Replacements, etc. came from that decade.
