July Poll!

Time for another Moonster vote for DRH Album Feature. The options this week are all from the 1980s.

Buggles - Adventures in Modern Recording
From 1981, this is the second and last Buggles album, released after the dissolution of the Drama line-up of Yes, before Downes joined Asia. Nice prog-related obscurity.

Midnight Oil - Diesel and Dust
From 1987, this is the biggest album by the best Australian band (IMO).

Boston - Third Stage
From 1986, this third Boston album had one huge hit, but the album as a whole is an under-known gem. It's still Boston's most "futuristic" sounding work.

Funkadelic - The Electric Spanking of War Babies
From 1981, this is the last true Parliament Funkadelic album - the end of an era. After this, Parliament fragmented in a dozen different projects. This is the only P-Funk album to feature Sly Stone.

Re: July Poll!

I voted for Midnight Oil because I've always liked it and because I haven't heard it in a long time. My brother had it. I like the Boston album but I own it so I can listen to it whenever I want. I'd say it's maybe on par with "don't look back." Their first of course is the best as overplayed as it is(kind of like the first Cars album that way).

Re: July Poll!

I picked Midnight Oil because I'm unfamiliar with it and I'm not thrilled with the other 3 choices.

Re: July Poll!

It took me more time to decide to vote,,,because it would be a vote by discard,,,
I do not vote that way, an exception this time
I thought,,it would be my small tribute to
Brad Delp... fantastic singer
Even I think it s not a good álbum to me,,,,and considering I m big fan of their 2 first albums,,my vote goes to Boston.

Buggles and Midnight Oil,,what I ve heard just anecdotal,,, barely heard them,,and not interested at all and Funk and Funkadelic ,,no thanks.

Re: July Poll!

I'd love to hear all four, however since I'm least familiar with the Funkadelic my vote goes there!

I'm not a huge fan of Funkedelic (or Parliment Funkedelic), but if you are a lover of the electric guitar you owe it to yourself to listen to this track. I believe that urban legend has it that George Clinton told Eddie Hazel " envision the saddest thought possible, his mother's death, and use that vision as inspiration" This is what he played. Just beautiful!

Re: July Poll!

I voted for Funkadelic because it most suits the spirit I had in mind when I created the concept of the DRH. In a selfish way, and it's my idea so there! haha

Midnight Oil is a great album, but I own it and have played it a lot. The other two albums are "meh" for me
