All time great rock band. Between 79 and 90 released six albums and an ep (Species Deceases) all of which I'd rate around a 9 or better. Off the top of my head post Beatles only Led Zeppelin and Radiohead would equal or better that. Growing up in rural Australia they were musical heroes.

Surprisingly consistent. During the 80's and early 90's it strong albums were followed by equally strong albums. I wouldn't say they're my favorite but you won't find much wrong either. Just a solid good band.

These were the first guys I heard as a kid where I recognized biting political lyrics. I wish more bands had the social conscience of Midnight Oil. To top it off, these guys were decent and songcraft as well.

One of Australia's best, saw them many times live in the 80's & were electric.
