Permanent Waves is an 80s album. You wouldn't call a movie that was recorded in 1979 and released in early 1980 a 70s movie. Why would it be any different for an album?

Well I might.  If everything about the movie radiated 70s, and the whole thing was written, filmed, and edited in the 70s, and it had music that was made in the 70s.

70s album.

Counting PeW, a '70s AOR album, partly because it was released in 1980, but mostly because without it all my songs would come from only two albums (the ones produced by Terry)...

1. Red Barchetta
2. Jacob's Ladder
3. The Analog Kid
4. Limelight
5. The Spirit of Radio
6. Vital Signs
7. Different Strings
8. Natural Science
9. New World Man
10. The Camera Eye

There are dozens of albums every decade recorded in a '9' year and released in a '0' year.

For consistency, I have to either research every album ending in a zero for the recording information before ascribing it to a decade, or just go by the stamp on the album.

So while PW may well be a 70's album in spirit, I keep it in the 80's for the above reason.

I can't like almost any of these lists because they all have songs that don't belong on 80s lists...

sad.
