"I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling,
Feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling"
I am glad that when I was about 18 my best mate was a Joy Division fan because they are not easily instantly accessable, but over a short period of time I came to adore this, Closer, Still, and Substance.
10/10 songs: Disorder, She's Lost Control, and Shadowplay [First added to this chart: 07/25/2017]
"They say they've got control of you
And that's a lie, you know"
When I first started getting into punk 30 odd years ago this was one of the first albums I loved. Great songs, with things to say, fighting injustices, fantastic vocals. Still a great album today and highly recommended to anyone with even a slight interest in punk.
10/10 songs: Johnny Was, Suspect Device, Barbed Wire Love [First added to this chart: 07/25/2017]
"Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother do you think they'll like this song?
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Mother should I build the wall?"
I don't think I ever listened to this album fully until after I saw the movie, at which time it all made so much more emotional sense. One of my 100 favourite movies that I have seen many times. I admit the album has lost some of it's shine over time for me, but it always wii be an awedome album.
10/10 songs: Comfortably Numb, Mother, Goodbye Blue Sky [First added to this chart: 07/25/2017]
Best Australian album of the year [First added to this chart: 07/25/2017]
Best USA album of the year [First added to this chart: 07/25/2017]

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
