Cruelty Without Beauty
2.  Cruelty Without Beauty by Soft Cell
The list author says:
  "Reformed after two decades, this Soft Cell album boasts a great retro sound. Dave Ball dusts off his archaic synthesisers, backing the 'new improved' vocal of dwarfish frontman Marc Almond."

Nag Nag Nag
5.  Nag Nag Nag by Cabaret Voltaire

Hyperactive!
6.  Hyperactive! by Thomas Dolby

Collection
8.  Collection by Japan

Youthquake

Cupid & Psyche 85
11.  Cupid & Psyche 85 by Scritti Politti

How to Be a Zillionaire: Remastered
12.  How to Be a Zillionaire: Remastered by ABC

The Very Best of the Smiths
15.  The Very Best of the Smiths by The Smiths
The list author says:
  "What a lyricist, and what beautiful chord progressions. This is serious stuff I know, but I cant help laughing at Morrisey's cutting observations. 10 out of 10 for entertainment value alone!"

18.  A Casual Introduction 1981 / 2001 by Edwyn Collins
