The Police - 1986 Amnesty International Concert for Human Rights. I've had a bootleg of this forever, and only just realized it was officially released on CD six or seven years ago in Japan.
Unforgivable! You are no longer Treasurer of the Police Squad. Police Academy? Whatever their fanboy club is called.
The Roxannes.
Forbidden - Twisted Into Form. Right before I got to the office, "Step By Step" came on the Liquid Metal satellite station. Rather than sit in the parking lot and listen, I went inside and gave the whole album a spin. An eternal classic, this one!
I am still shocked folks like you and Blevins bother with radio stations.
It came with the car, and I like the randomness of it, although I basically hate both of the metal stations, which are shockingly getting worse. I listen to the 80s and New Wave channels a lot more frequently. There's a lot of music from that period that I enjoy, but not so much that I'd care to buy. Like, a Midnight Oil song every now and then is fine, but I would never spin a CD of theirs. If I wasn't so lazy, I guess I'd set up Android Auto and sign up to some streaming service for the same effect. One of these days, I guess.
Megadeth - The System Has Failed. Haven't listened to this in a dog's age, but it's still pretty great! I like it more than anything after Rust in Peace, and really, it's about on par with that album for me.
Yikes. Just yikes.
Rust in Peace is super overrated. It's not even as good as SFSGSW.
Loudness - Hurricane Eyes. It's cheesy, but I listen to this more than any Loudness album.
S.D.I., This Lonely Heart, Strike of the Sword, and In This World Beyond rule. I don't care for the rest of the tunes, but those four easily make this my fave Loudness. The only other one I own is Disillusion, a recent acquisition.
I think you'd like Soldier of Fortune. It sometimes leans a little hairy, but then, so do your tastes!
Manitou - Entrance. One of the greatest albums of the first prog metal boom. Needs reissuing, with their demos and non-album tracks!
I wish I liked this as much as everyone else does.
Try harder.
