Respect to anyone who can create so many top 100 charts by year - you must eat, sleep and shit music. I recognise all the UK stuff and liked these guys at the time as well but was nowhere close to be getting and listening to their albums - singles were enough. I do regret it but trying to make up for lost time and there are a few German bands I will pick up - I recall Krafwerk's Model from early 80's.

Ghost in the machine. Great album that often is forgotten when talking about Police. Nice.

Those "New Romantics" were nothing for me.
