My birth year is 1965.

The most noteworthy albums that I've listened to that were released that birthday year were (in Ratings order):
  1. Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited (30 August 1965)
  2. The Byrds, Mr. Tambourine Man (21 June 1965)
  3. Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home (note: this album came out just three days after my actual birth date - it came out on 22 March 1965; my birth date was 19 March 1965)
  4. The Beach Boys, The Beach Boys Today! (this album came out the same month as my birth month - but it came out at the beginning of that month (1 March 1965))
  5. The Beatles, Rubber Soul (3 December 1965)
  6. The Beach Boys, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!) (5 July 1965)
Thus, my birth year is not too shabby.

Also, note that that list was done by someone in Italy, not by someone in England or the US. Thus, it is that person's -- and not necessarily any other person's -- judgment.

Lessee, for me it was probably "Horowitz plays Scriabin". I think that was also the year that Miles released "Round Midnight". I guess that backs up my custom title!

Beatles >"Please Please Me"
James Brown >"Live at the Apollo 1962"
Bob Dylan >"Freewheelin' Bob Dylan"

Don't let the James Brown album fool you, it was actually released in 1963. There's more, but I can't think of them right now.

I can only think of one "great" album from '83, that being U2's "War." I consider a few of the following albums great, some just fun to listen to:

Dio - Holy Diver
Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil
Pink Floyd - The Final Cut
Savatage - Sirens
Slayer - Show No Mercy
ZZ Top - Eliminator

The Cure - Faith
Foreigner - 4
Squeeze - East Side Story
Loverboy - Get Lucky
Styx - Paradise Theater
Judas Priest - Point Of Entry (...okay, this one is debatable

All in all, 1981 wasn't so bad.

BTW, anybody take a look at that site in the first post? Any thoughts?



1985 was my senior year in high school, so I was buying albums like mad. Here are a few of note:

Stevie Ray Vaughn - Soul To Soul
Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms
Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
Kate Bush - Hounds Of Love
Eurythmics - Be Yourself Tonight
Pete Townshend - White City
Talking Heads - Little Creatures
John Cougar (Mellencamp) - Scarecrow
Tom Petty - Southern Accents
John Fogerty - Centerfield
Phil Collins - No Jacket Required
Tears For Fears - Songs From the Big Chair
ZZ Top - Afterburner
Rush - Power Windows
REM - Fables Of The Reconstruction
Sting - Dream Of The Blue Turtles
Heart - Heart

1985 was a good year for me, both musically and in the richness of my life's experiences. Seems to have been a good year for your parents, too, considering that you were born.

Darn, me neither. I haven't even heard of any of these albums from when I was born.

Now, just imagine in a couple decades what those born last year will be saying. I hope it's "What the heck is this crap?" or at least "This music stinks!" and not "Oh, I just love that album!"

Well, 1987 was a mixed bag. On the one hand, you had albums such as U2's "The Joshua Tree" and Guns N' Roses' "Appetite For Destruction". But, on the other hand, there was Michael Jackson's "Bad" and George Michael's "Faith".

Those albums sort of cancel each other out.
