Goblin - 1977 Suspiria
'Suspiria' remains Goblin's most well known work and the stark, haunting synth passages combined with imaginative progressive passages makes for one of the most atmospheric albums of the decade. Mixed with some crucial hard rock elements Goblin truly ran the gamut of prog sensibilities here, a captivating listen.

Journey - 1980 Dream After Dream
An unusual release in Journey's discography is the rare 1980 Japanese soundtrack 'Dream After Dream'.

Official Soundtrack - 1984 Dune
It wasn't the greatest science fiction movie of all time, I leave that title to the likes of 'Alien', the original 'Solaris' and maybe 'Metropolis', but it's worth a visit now and then for nostalgia's sake and those with adventurous tastes or have a hankering for crossover prog will find the album attractive while those expecting a Toto connected AOR fix will be sorely disappointed.

Soundtracks - 1986 The Wraith
It's long been considered a cult classic movie from the 80's. However, it's the music which gives it a cult-classic feel, thanks to Scotti Bros and their array of rostered artists, plus a smattering of big name stars added to the list.

Various Artists - 1979 The Warriors (Soundtrack)
This will always be one of my favourite movies and soundtracks, bringing back a host of memories associated with the movie and the times and places I've seen it. It should appeal to a wide cross section of melodic rock lovers, with one foot in every avenue of the late 70's various genres that were ruling the airwaves.

Various Artists - 1980 Xanadu Soundtrack
Featuring the Electric Light Orchestra, Olivia Newton John, Cliff Richard and The Tubes among others, here's a review of the 1980 soundtrack 'Xanadu'.

Various Artists - 1983 Staying Alive [Soundtrack]
Of all the AOR dominated soundtracks of the decade this is undoubtedly one of the best, with a good mixture of melodic rock and West Coast, the latter - compliments of Frank Stallone.

Various Artists - 1985 American Flyers [Soundtrack]
Seemingly eradicated from the history of time is this soundtrack from an equally forgotten cycling film starring a then fledgling Kevin Costner. With two significant names like Lee Ritenour and Greg Mathieson at the helm and the year being 1985, this lives up to the billing as a melodic rock gem.

Various Artists - 1985 Rocky IV Soundtrack
The soundtrack was a blockbuster, selling over four million copies, proving the 80's publics greater taste!
