Talking Heads de ided to preempt the dreaded sophomore record syndrome by using the sarcastic title More Songs About Buildings and Food. Th is album was the first of three with producer Brian Eno, who nicely forged the album with musical unity and more emphasis on the rhythm section.

Recorded in Wales, Robert Plant‘s second album, The Principle of Moments is polished and clinical while maintaining enough rock edge to keep it original and interesting. With the help of a first rate backing band, Plant’s second life as a major recording artist was fully spawned in 1983.

Barenaked Ladies found their big crossover hit with the group’s fourth studio album, Stunt. The combination of their clever, satirical lyrics with fine production and a diverse blend of musical styles led to their biggest commercial success with this multi-million selling chart topper.

50 years ago, Pink Floyd released their only studio album to include all five members with A Saucerful of Secrets. This was due to the album being recorded both before and after the departure of guitarist and songwriter Syd Barrett, whose sad demise is hauntingly documented in real time on this classic album.

When Men at Work recoded their second album, Cargo, in the summer of 1982, they were still just a regional act and couldn’t anticipate the delayed success of their debut album later that year. When this follow-up was finally released in mid 1983, the group was suddenly Grammy-winning superstars on top of the charts.

Although Jimmy Page had a pretty rich post-Led Zeppelin career, he only released one solo studio album, Outrider in 1988. Originally intended to be a double album, the project was pared back when Page’s demo tapes were stolen, leaving him with no pre-production material. As a result, the single LP finished product has a bit of an unpolished sound.

The Kinks reached the climax of their second major success phase with State of Confusion in 1983. This album comes at the heart of the band’s early eighties “renaissance” when they once again embraced the more direct, straight-forward, “garage rock” sound which the group initially forged in the 1960s. The album contains what would become The Kinks’ last batch of charting hits.

40 years ago, The Cars released their self-titled debut album, a unique sounding breakthrough which brought the group instant worldwide attention and may be one of the best produced albums of the era. The potent compositions and new wave sound positioned The Cars as an unavoidable jewel to carry the day in the late seventies.
