Evolution of Sloth. Early years

Sup, so I've been on Sput for 7 months (veteran, I know), and feel as though it's time to let you all know how my music taste evolved/devolved/changed throughout my existence. List below is my favorite album of each year, I remember, as I lived through that year.
1Men at Work
Business as Usual


1981
My Current rating. 5
Average Sput rating. 3.6 from 71 votes
Average RYM rating. 3.45 from 1,506 views
I was young, but still preferred real music over children's songs. My parents both loved this album, so it was on heavy rotation. I can still remember my dad singing. Be good be good be good be good be good be good be good Johnny. Still am awesome song.
2Michael Jackson
Thriller


1982.
My current rating. 4
Sput. 4.3 from 1,535
RYM. 3.91 from 13,462
What wasn't there to love about Michael when you were a little boy. He touched me in a special way. Initially this album was all about thriller for me, the film clip, the dancing, the song, but then i stated getting into the other tracks, Wanna be startin somethin, Beat it and Billie Jeans were favorites of the young Sloth
3Culture Club
Colour by Numbers


1983.
My current rating. 3.5
Sput. 3.3 from 50
RYM. 3.09 from 825.
I was fascinated by Boy George, and loved Karma Chameleon to death. Listening to this album again, i only recognise a few other tracks on the A side, i must have kept on repeating side A.
4Prince
Purple Rain


1984
My Current rating. 5
Sput. 4.4 from 871
RYM. 4.07 from 11,796
What was it about my youth that loved flamboyant performers. This was my jam, i had to sneak to watch the movie/clips, my parents were strict on what i was allowed to watch, but they'd play explicit records all the time.
5Tears for Fears
Songs from the Big Chair


1985
My current rating. 4.5
Sput. 4.1 from 490
RYM. 3.84 from 5,686
Another album that my oldies spun a lot. I ended up taking over it, and chose to put it on myself. Everybody Wants to Rule the World was my anthem of that year, slothing through the woods.
6Crowded House
Crowded House


1986
My current rating. 4
Sput. 3.8 from 76
RYM. 3.55 from 1,259
Great Australian, via New Zealand band. All my friends would listen to this as well, i think every second house in Australia would be jamming this whilst we played backyard cricket.
7Midnight Oil
Diesel and Dust


1987
My current rating. 4
Sput. 3.9 from 118
RYM. 3.65 from 1,644
Another classic Australian album. The political messages were over my head, but i knew they were important. I remember asking my mum what the song Bed Are Burning, was about. This was the first album where i actually took notice of the lyrics.
8New Kids on the Block
Hangin' Tough


1988.
My current rating. 2.5
Sput. 2.2 from 27
RYM. 1.73 from 253
I thought i was cool, nothing more to say, move along
9Faith No More
The Real Thing


1989.
My current rating. 4.5
Sput. 4.1 from 1,734
RYM. 3.77 from 6,929
From slops to tops. This was the first album i bought with my own money. I used to show it off to all my friends, i used to read and sing along with every song, the first album i did this to. I took ownership of this album and told everyone about it, my first rec.
10Public Enemy
Fear of a Black Planet


1990
My current rating. 4
Sput. 4.3 from 741
RYM. 3.86 from 5,640.
I had this on cassette, and I'd take it everywhere. We were the whitest little Aussie wannabe African Americans. This started my rap faze.
