Indiscreet
4.  Indiscreet by Sparks
The list author says:
  "My first Sparks album. Indiscreet is less guitar orientated then previous works and employs diverse instrumentation. It often divides opinion due to it's bizarre sounds. I love it"

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Number One in Heaven
5.  Number One in Heaven by Sparks
The list author says:

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Big Beat
6.  Big Beat by Sparks
The list author says:

3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

A Woofer In Tweeter's Clothing
7.  A Woofer In Tweeter's Clothing by Sparks

Sparks
8.  Sparks by Sparks

SPARKS / GRATUITOUS SAX & VIOLINS
9.  SPARKS / GRATUITOUS SAX & VIOLINS by Sparks

Angst in My Pants
10.  Angst in My Pants by Sparks

4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

In outer space
11.  In outer space by Sparks
The list author says:

3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Best Of Sparks - Music That You Can Dance To [US Import]
12.  The Best Of Sparks - Music That You Can Dance To [US Import] by Sparks

£22.61   Used & New from: £4.82
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Terminal Jive
13.  Terminal Jive by Sparks
The list author says:
  "Sparks were more controlled on this effort, and only released it due to a contractual obligation.  Sparks trademark style is sadly missing. Standard disco."
£9.96   Used & New from: £4.62
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Balls
14.  Balls by Sparks
The list author says:
  "This is quite underrated. It has some beautiful melodies and incredibly catchy songs. Perhaps it could have been improved with better production."
Used & New from: £5.42
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Whomp That Sucker
15.  Whomp That Sucker by Sparks
The list author says:

Interior Design
16.  Interior Design by Sparks
The list author says:
  "By their standards, this is quite a bland sounding album. Despite this, it's easy to enjoy and relax too. As always with Sparks, good pop tunes are to be head!"

Pulling Rabbits Out Of A Hat [Us Import]
17.  Pulling Rabbits Out Of A Hat [Us Import] by Sparks
The list author says:
  "Like alot of Sparks 80s releases, I'm convinced with better production they could have been far greater. This theory certainly applies to this album. Try some other albums before this."
