    Well, I have decided to start growing my music collection in a little different
    way, I'm going back to 1980 and work my way up to current day, buying all
    the good albums on the way.

    But, I need your help since I was rather young in 1980 ;) So if you have a
    suggestion for an album I should add to my list from the year 1980, reply
    to this thread. I will let you know when I go up to 1981.

    * = Already owned CD
    ! = Waiting for order to arrive
    = = Ordered, but currently out of stock
    ? = Not available, ignoring

    Current list for 1980:
    *Jethro Tull - A
    *Motörhead - Ace Of Spades
    *AC/DC - Back In Black
    ?Midnight Oil - Bird Noises
    *Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard Of Ozz
    *Genesis - Duke
    *Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden

    *Judas Priest - British Steel
    *Accept - I'm A Rebel
    *Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell
    *Angel Witch - Angel Witch
    *Diamond Head - Lightning To The Nations

    This is going to be fascinating. According to my collection, the only record I own from 1980 is Iron Maiden's self-titled, so I can't help you there. But it gets more interesting in the following years.

    Oh btw, year 1981 will begin when I have the albums from 1980, so it
    might be a while, but gives you more time to influence it too.

    Tho, I just ordered:
    Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard Of Ozz
    Genesis - Duke
    Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
    Dire Straits - Making Movies
    Saxon - Wheels Of Steel
    Saxon - Strong Arm Of The Law
    Van Halen - Women And Children First

    Some of them seem to be out of stock, so not sure if they all will arrive.

    I also decided that I will not be listening to anything recorded after the
    year I am currently "stuck" in. So, right now my playlist is fairly small :)
    This ensures that I will actually pay attention to the stuff I buy.

    I can also now be found on Last.fm

    Consider yourself invited to the official DT forum member group there (link is in my signature).

    Just two more members there and we will have group charts.

    Queen - The Game (not their best record ever, but well).

    Do you like punk at all? Let me know, so that I can give you appropriate recommendations.

    Edit: Matse, I joined your merry band on Last.fm.

    Now only the battle of Salamis has to join and we can take over the world.

    It is impossible to take over the world with less than ten people due to obvious reasons.

    I've been known to dabble in it.
    Also if I don't like something in 1980, I'm not buying more in 1981 :)

    I have joined now as well.

    Oh, then it's a no-brainer.

    The Clash - Sandinista!

    Hell, there's The magnificent seven on that.

    Also, I suggest that you start from 1979, not 1980, because you don't really want to go through the whole endeavor without The wall.

    Thanks!
    Don't wanna start further back then 1980, I already have The Wall as a
    casette, so I guess I could get that as a CD too (just cos I start at 1980
    don't mean I can't go backwards for some goodies :) ).

    Why starting only from 1980?

    Then go...

    Kiss - Destroyer 1976.

    I love Kiss, especially in the beginning, their debut is as heavy as it can get. Nothing silly like "I was made for loving you"

    Because I don't have infinite money or time, you have any idea how many
    albums this will include and even if they are all from the cheap bin it will be
    really expensive later on when people have more suggestions.
    Also, I will get some older stuff too, just not everything and it is not any
    kind of priority.

    Boys Don't Cry won't be possible since it was a US release only and I live
    in Sweden, but I will add their Seventeen Seconds to the list since it was
    released the same year.

    Diamond Head was already on the list, but thanks anyway :)


    I remember liking Destroyer as a kid too, even had a patch of the cover to
    go on the back of my jacket. So I will get it, but as I said earlier the older
    stuff is not priority.

    2 albums closer to the truth.
    Diamond Head - Lightning To The Nations
    Judas Priest - British Steel

    NP: Diamond Head - The Prince


    Ghhh, now I have to install my parents printer on this new laptop.
    Pretty sweet deal, 17" screen, AMD TL-58, 2Gigs RAM, 256MB
    GeForce 8400M and most interestingly a digital TV tuner.
