Classic Introspective into Synthpop, New Wave, & Classic Rock

This podcast is great! It finds classic albums and music and gives a full introspective view. They show their pure energy for classic synthpop. Honestly, I just can’t get enough!

80’s Heaven

Brian and Sarah remind us of why some of the 80’s albums and songs were the best ever! This is a fantastic podcast for anyone who is interested in New Wave or grew up listening to that genre of music. They really spend the time to do the research, truly understand the context of the music, and the listen to the words, music and production to create in depth reviews and analysis of these records. Completely accessible but still very intricate in their dissection. Of the songs. Incredibly accurate on the historical information about the band and songs, well thought out and ultimately entertaining. If you enjoy any of the albums they are reviewing, or a music junkie of the 70’s and 80’s, you have to listen. I have just found my favorite Podcast! Thank you Sarah and Brian ( and sometimes Colby) for the great discussions you let us be a part of!

80s finest discussed In Depth

Great podcast with hosts who grew up with exactly my taste in music: British synth bands from the 80s. The albums reviews are always very well researched, I remember reading most of the Smash Hits reviews when I was a wee lad in Scotland (and Smash Hits’ little catchphrases like LA(man); Paul Fab wacka thumbs aloft McCartney; and Terrance Trout D’Arby). Also cute hearing a couple of Yanks get to grips with the context of the times these albums were released in the U.K.
