Aaaahhh. LOL

I'm gonna Abacab it.

And apologies for any other greats going rogue I forgot about.

Four different attempts at commercial success, two winners, two losers.  I kind of wonder if what sets them is apart is '70's vs '80's or trying too hard vs not...

Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

I like Giant For A Day. I think the majority of the hate stems from how much it contrasts their previous albums.
I'm so mad that you enjoy a certain combination of noises that I don't

Little Brown Bag and Spookie Boogie.  I'd classify the album as prog around the edges.

Giant for a Day is a good album.
 
90125 is OK.

Very slightly I'll say. Actually thinking back on the album some lines and chord changes are just a bit off kilter.

A surprising, to me at least, statement coming from a member of the RIO/ Avant / Zeuhl team.

I'd choose every 80's album I know, and I know a lot of them, off this list, CLICK over any of the albums in this poll (that includes the much maligned, but I think good, Merci).  A lot of my favourite albums in PA come from that decade, with Art Zoyd being the one I have been the biggest overall fan of.

Anyway, no vote from me.

90125 again.  Although this time it was a bit harder as I do love me some Abacab too.  Giant for a Day was kinda bleh.  A couple of good tracks, in particular the instrumental, but otherwise not very exciting.  And while Love Beach did have Memoirs which was fairly interesting, side one was awful.  
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?
