    Avalon is a more personal work of art. Some folks just don't get it.

    I agree. Sort of like Steely Dan's Aja.

    I'm a Roxy Music fan since 1975. They are/where a love um or leave um band. I always thought they where a better studio band until I saw them live in 78. They evolved pretty well with member changes especially after Brian Eno left. I have always felt that many bands including new wave groups where influenced by them. Take Eminence Front by The Who and imagine Bryan Ferry singing it

    Avalon is a great album. That I rarely listen to anymore. Parallel Lines/Blondie I chose to listen to way more than Roxy.
    There's two kinds of music: There's music I like, and there's music I don't like.

    Yeah, these are a little more niche than I was expecting. I'll play anyway!

    The Cars (The Cars) vs Kings Of The Wild Frontier (Adam Ant)

    All Four One (The Motels) vs Spring Session M (Missing Persons)

    Avalon (Roxy Music) vs Parallel Lines (Blondie)

    War (U2) vs The Lexicon Of Love (ABC). <- Hate to vote against U2, but I don't think of them as new wave.

    Pretenders (Pretenders) vs Welcome To The Pleasure Dome (Frankie Goes To Hollywood)

    Ghost In The Machine (The Police) vs Beauty And The Beat (Go-Go's)

    Rio (Duran Duran) vs Into The Gap (Thompson Twins)

    Once Upon A Time (Simple Minds) vs Get The Knack (The Knack)

    The Knack is a great pop band. I've been revisiting them in the last year or two, and they are really really good.

    That said, if Duran Duran doesn't win this I'll be surprised.

    I went to Youtube to listen to both records (and watch some of the videos shoots) and now I regret not voting on The Knack.

    That's funny, I listened to Once Upon a Time earlier up until just after Alive and Kicking... couldn't take any more. Haha! Didn't age well for me.

    I would have not even thought twice about voting for the Knack. First album it solid tits!

    Coulda, I possibly haven't heard any of these albums in their entirety. The Knack just wins because the stuff on their album doesn't trigger my gag reflex. IMO they just sound like a normal pop rock band. Most of the other bands is 80's pop suffering from all the cliches of this period. Maybe there are some exceptions but I just don't feel the need to force myself to listen to it. Just like you probably won't force yourself to browse though my favorite space rock, jazz fusion, stoner metal, Polish rock, ex-Yugo or Czech rock/metal bands, especially when sung in Serbo-Croatian or Czech.

    The Cars (The Cars) vs Kings Of The Wild Frontier (Adam Ant) - The Cars I guess. I donít like either of these albums, but Friend or Foe is the only Adam Ant album thatís any good.

    All Four One (The Motels) vs Spring Session M (Missing Persons) - Missing Persons

    Avalon (Roxy Music) vs Parallel Lines (Blondie) - Blondie.

    War (U2) vs The Lexicon Of Love (ABC) - No vote here. I donít like either of them.

    Pretenders (Pretenders) vs Welcome To The Pleasure Dome (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) - Frankie because I canít stand the Pretenders.

    Ghost In The Machine (The Police) vs Beauty And The Beat (Go-Go's) - The Police by a million miles. Itís their best album. And the GoGoís are way overrated in my mind anyway. Theyíre fun, but theyíre not that great.

    Rio (Duran Duran) vs Into The Gap (Thompson Twins) - Duran Duran by miles.

    Once Upon A Time (Simple Minds) vs Get The Knack (The Knack) - I guess The Knack for My Sharonaís solo alone.
