80's all the way for me.  To be honest, I was shocked when I joined TRF and found that anybody (much less a significant portion of the members) would even consider that it was a 70's album.

Musically (for me) - 80's.  Easy.  Style, design, artwork, layout of the album - 80's.  Released - 80's.  Recorded in the 70's yes.  But thats the only connection to the 70's for me.

In all honesty it sounds like the bridge between, much like every album has a bridge element from the last one to the next.

It compares as readily to MP as it does to H.

In fact, as I think about it, I see it as more comparable to MP then Hemispheres, so even musically I place it in the 80's.

No one who think this is a 70’s album has a legitimate argument as to why this is. Ok it was recorded in 1979. No one in their right mind would argue that fact. Eagle
moon incorrectly states that the 80’s had a synth pop direction. That is arguable. Grace, Power Windows and HYF certainly have those elements but Presto arguably does not.

I'm mixed to tell you the truth. But if I had to choose, I'd go with it being an 80s album.

Musically it can be debated because it's all about one's taste in music and style. Factually, there's no debate in what decade it belongs, but some people can't seem to figure that out. It's like some facts the Left believe and some they don't and same for the  Right even though they're all facts. #somepeopleareignorant

Written, produced, recorded, pressed into vinyl, packed into boxes and tracks played on the radio in the 70's yes.  But thats the only connection to the 70's for me.

I’ll find a way to avoid that.

Nothing really ever changes.  It seems that at any given moment, about any given issue, about half the people are wrong.  The other half know that Permanent Waves is clearly a 70s album, The Last Jedi was damned entertaining, and Coca-Cola is better than Pepsi.
