Classic Rock Review of the Year 1982
There were alot of good albums released in 1982, but few truly great ones. It was the golden age of new wave, the waning days of traditional classic rock and punk, and the advent of 80s “hair metal”. From this musical crossroads, we found a hefty amount of albums to review, 17 in all, and ultimately chose Men At Work’s Business As Usual as the best of the bunch.

|Other 1982 Albums of Note|
Although we reviewed 17 albums from 1982, there were still many fine albums which we overlooked. Crosby, Stills, and Nash came back after a half decade with Daylight Again while Peter Gabriel released his fouth consecutive eponymous album, commonly known as “Security”. Both Fleetwood Mac and The Steve Miller Band scored commercial success with Mirage and Abracadabra respectively, and Supertramp recorded their final album with Roger Hodgson called Famous Last Words.
