Hi ya I stole the idea from this thread http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=277838 Since I don't even have memories from 1982, I want to jump 10 years to 1992. In 1992 I really listened to music (when radio and TV actually mattered for new music around!) and it was such a great year for me as well! I learned to play guitar I don't want to post the typical and (ab)used "best albums of 1992". Rather, what albums were YOUR personal favourites and why Don't be shy. Share your memories, your tastes, etc. Do you still listen to those albums today? Well, in 1992 my favourites albums were: 1- Bon Jovi: Keep The Faith. I remember being the first album that I actually heard and bought first on CD An incredible album, with a new sound. I still love 'Dry County'. Their longest ever song, and one of the finest long songs ever. That CD (which ends with the astounding 'Save I Prayer') I still own and still sounds great! 2- Def Leppard: Adrenalize. The first time, as usual around that era, I actually watched the first single on TV. In this case, 'Let's Get Rocked' with one of the coolest videos ever seen. Unlike Keep The faith, this one came first on cassette for me. I used to listen to the album @ really loud levels 3- ABBA: Gold. My introduction to ABBA!. My parents bought the CD and I really liked the group 4- Joe Satriani: The Extremist. I was learning to play guitar. The funny thing is that I actually learned first on an spanish guitar, without a pick. Despite I heared a lot of rock, I first began to play folk songs, The Beatles and a good deal of other material. I played an electric guitar for the first time when I was 15 5- Kiss: Revenge. Despite I didn't buy the album (I borrowed a cassette from a friend) I liked a lot of it. 'Unholy' sounded really heavy, and 'God Gave Rock and Roll To You' is still one of my all-time fav Kiss anthems ... and where're all the other universally acclaimed albums? I loved the singles from Automatic for the People, but it wasn't until 1994 or around that I actually heard the album. I discovered Peter Gabriel's 'Us' in mid 90s and so on. Have fun!
