Young And Dumb - Various - New Wave Invasion – Across The Globe (CDr, Album)
Theoretically, Marquee Moon should have all the marks of a punk album, rather than post punk. A band that had percolated through a close knit, incestuous metropolitan scene in the mids, they captured the moment with an early single release before finally arriving at their debut album in early But of course as soon as you press play on Marquee Moonyou are a million miles away from Young And Dumb - Various - New Wave Invasion – Across The Globe (CDr strictures of punk rock.
It may predate many punk classics, but post-punk would be unrecognizable without Marquee Moon. Maybe you quit that shitty dead-end job, or you decide to get serious with your girlfriend, or you stop drinking such crappy beer. More than almost any other album, Disintegration articulates how overwhelming it can be to feel, how an emotion can fill a day.
And of course, the music is just gorgeous, blown-out and full and shimmering, all warm synth washes and clean guitars echoing pristine. Songs stretch out past seven, eight, nine minutes while never getting stale or losing momentum.
Played with a relentless blend of James Brown funk, Captain Beefheart crookedness and punk declaration, the message of Entertainment! Maximalist, eclectic, expansive and intense, the Talking Heads of Remain in Light was the end result of a high-minded concept brought to a stunning conclusion.
Employing a stream-of-consciousness writing style and influences such as Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Remain In Light is in essence an album about letting the music take over when the composer is willing to hand over control.
It transcends genre. Hook would be so inspired as to buy his first guitar the next day, and voila: Joy Division. Johnny Rotten may have initially inspired the band with the anarchist folly of getting away with anything; Joy Division chose to explore physical and metaphysical pain, and got away with that. In three years, they birthed Unknown Pleasures. In four, they lost Curtis to suicide on the verge of their first American tour. His maudlin, tragic ghost towers over all things Joy Division, especially this lone album he lived to see.
Divorce and depression and epilepsy were his existential anchors, submerging him within sight of what could have been his greatest living successes. This is a singularly insular LP, relentlessly caught up in its feels. In transforming the cartoonish rebellion of The Sex Pistols into methodical, purposeful, all-encompassing darkness, Joy Division create a far angrier album than Never Mind the Bollocks ever really was.

Decent list, better than the punk one. Still not focused enough, REM should not be on the list. How is Fugazi not on a post punk list?! They were the inspiration for some of the bands on the list, but they never went commercial!
