Video Killed The Radio Star
Label: Universal-Island Records Ltd.
Don't overlook this '80s pop classic. Production deity Trevor Horn had more in him than just "Video Killed the Radio Star." His considerable songwriting prowess is also evident on "Plastic Age," "Elstree" (a tribute to the famed U.K. film studios) and "Clean Clean." Crisp and catchy, this LP is not so much a guilty pleasure as an essential point in electropop history.
