Best 80s electro synth, goth & new wave essentials
updated about 1 month ago
A collection of my fave 80s albums I consider essentials and some of the best rated. Many are chosen for synth and experimentalism cult type bands, and this is not an exhaustive list with pop 80s, indie rock, or dark abrasive stuff, nor too genre specific. All these are very listenable and good to spin for the sometimes experimental ear. Some more obscure that should definitely be checked out if you don't know them and are into the 80's sound. Many of them are experimental because of the new technology in the 80's, and not all songs are gems but the lesser songs seem to grow on you. Suggestions welcome.
