I agree with you about Steve Lilywhite.  I would pick up albums based on who produced them.  Siouxsie & the Banshess is another example.  When I met Mike and Paul of A Flock of Seagulls, I told them I would never have discovered their music if Bill Nelson hadn't been involved.  Same with The Police, if they hadn't performed on Eberhard Schoener's LP.  Or Strontium 90.

Cathedral released their debut album in 1991 if i remember right, 
Yes, but I didn't say that they didn't. They formed in 1989 Wink


Furthermore, the musicians of Cathedral all started in other bands created in the 80's: Lee Dorrian in the mentioned Napalm Death, and guitarists Gaz Jennings and Adam Lehan in Acid Reign. They are from the same generation.

I'm going to have to remove Gina X Performance from my list.  I see the album came out in 1978.

If just limiting to the 'world wide' pop chart famous artists, I'd like to mention these: Men At Work, Pet Shop Boys, Dire Straits, UB40, U2, Eurythmics, Simple Minds, Rick Astley (87-90), Tears For Fears, Duran Duran, Berlin, Daryl Hall, A-Ha etc., these are the 80's artists whose hits I used to get hookd on, a fair bunch of really catchy melodies that I never forget, easy for me to recognize today. But there were many as well from the seventies that extended their works to the eighties, some of their music I was quite hooked on too those times and still enjoy: Stevie Wonder, Elton John, ELO, Rod Stewart, Lionel Ritchie, Al Jarreau, Air Supply, Michael Jackson, Madonna and others that I don't recall now. Unfortunately in the 80's I hadn't been lucky to know the really good Blue Oyster Cult, they released great music during the eighties too.

Cathedral released their debut album in 1991 if i remember right, but there was Candlemass that were great and Trouble (as far as doom goes).
A lot of metal bands were great in the 80s, you mentioned a few, a lot of great thrash metal bands, German metal was nice (Helloween, Accept, Blind Guardian, Warlock to name a few), some US power (beside Savatage, there were Helstar and Jag Panzer that I know and like).
I enjoy a little bit of hair-metal (Motley Crue, Ratt, Dokken, Cinderella, Great White, WASP).

Dio, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Diamond Head, Def Leppard, mercyful Fate and King Diamond, Fates Warning, Queensryche, Saxon, Ozzy, so many great bands...

Toto and Foreigner contiunued making nice music, plus Survivor and Night Ranger, Journey.

As far as pop goes, A-ha and Depeche Mode were great, also Ultravox put out some nice music.
Duran Duran started really well, their debut album was great but they went downhill after that, some uneven albums, with some good songs and some cringe-worthy stuff. Their 1984 live album Arena was quite good though.
Simple Minds deserves a mention, I've always preferred them to the overrated U2 (some uneven albums, at least for me).
Talk Talk obviously.

there was neo-prog.

So yeah, I like 80s music. LOL

Golden age for the more traditional metal subgenres would extend to the mid/late 1970s and not just the 1980s. The more extreme styles arguably didn't really take off until the 1990s. I'm obviously just playing devil's advocate here, but people mostly into newer black/death metal tend to kind of "read the genre's history backwards" if you know what I mean.

In the '80s, you could still pick up excellent seats at a concert for $10-$15.....and you could still see Frank Zappa. live, so, yeah, I loved the 1980s
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Oh I like a lot of the more respectable metal too. And since metal implies a harder edge, I've never really thought of most hair metal as "metal" but common terminology and all.
