Steven and Tim struggle to get their list of great albums released in this year down from a shortlist of hundreds.  So much so that they forget to mention King Crimson's Larks Tongues in Aspic completely, shame on them!

Episode 1 - 1980
Steven and Tim reckon this is a fantastic year for albums, with the explosion of creative music coming out of the post-punk crucible. There are also some older artists producing some of their very finest work in this year.  Plus Tim tries to enthuse Steven about an ex-Beatle's solo album and Steven tries to do the same with industrial noise music.
