Suspense

1988

Alternative/Indie Rock

Often overlooked by fans and critics, the French no wave chanteuse's fifth and final LP may be her slickest, but underneath the bright sheen of late-80's production are some vibrant songs and unusally strong performances.

How Men Are

1984

New Romantic

A peak album in a long career that's stretched into the 21st century, the New Romantics' third LP featured the U.K., Ireland, and U.S. dance hits "Sunset Now" and "This Is Mine." With vocalist Glenn Gregory likely winning new fans on tour with Holy Holy, a band that has Woody Woodmansey, Tony Visconti, and friends performing David Bowie classics, it's a fine entry point for the uninitiated.
