The 80s were brilliant, mate. They were undeniably the pinnacle of musical progress, and it's only gotten better with time. Without the 80s, we wouldn't have such legendary musicians as Genesis, Duran Duran, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Cyndi Lauper and anyone who contributed to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. Sadly, these achievements are tarnished by such terrible bands as Queen, Echo & the Bunnymen and Depeche Mode, but these bands are in the minority and cannot detract from the greatness that was the 80s. It's just a shame that I only lived through 2 years of the 80s, rather than all of it. Thankfully, due to the creativity of musicians such as Coldplay, Muse and Leona Lewis, we can relive the 80s all over again. Won't that be great?

And by "reviews" I mean "me pissing and moaning". Journal titles will follow the format of "[A] suck(s), mate" or "[C] by [A] sucks, mate", where [A] is the musician name and [C] is the name of an album of song by the musician.
