Brothers In Arms is almost certainly going to win this as much as we may not want it to.

It’s more about what is missing, no Alf - Alison Moyet

Such a tough decision. Is Actually really the best album of the 1980s... I don't know if I can justify voting for PSB.

Well, Joshua Tree is U2's best album... Good to see two of my all favourite albums are on that list (FGTH and PSB).

Wow. Solid top 20. I'm ok with where Actually placed as I don't think its the boys best album anyway, (Please obviously is) and the others in the list are definitely brilliant albums. I have most (not all) of them and they rain over most albums that have been issued since.

One point about Gary Davies. Its worth remembering that without his support, the PSB would not have broken through. His willingness to play on radio 1 lunch time, a song 'west end girls', ad-nauseum when it was around the top 30-40 mark made a very big difference to getting airplay across Radio 1. If I was ever (lucky) enough to meet him, I'd shake his hand and say thank you for providing an introduction to a band that since 1986 has been the soundtrack to my (and my families) lives.

Co-incidentally, he also single-handedly supported one of my all time favourite songs... Im Nim Alu by the (sadly late) Isreaii songstress Ofra Haza.

Gary Davies is a legend and nobody on this board should ever overlook just how important his support was.

I bow my head in thanks !!
