Vital visceral Synth-Emotionality

A Listmania! list by Torsten "barneyfc" (Soho, England)
 
Wired For Sound
1.  Wired For Sound by Cliff Richard
The list author says:
  "Pop 'n' rock cross-over that defined the sound of a brief magical moment in time. 'Summer Rain' a track as near to heaven as music can be."
£9.08   Used & New from: £3.98
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Hurting
2.  The Hurting by Tears For Fears
The list author says:
  "The definitive soundtrack to hope in adversity. Testament that all change in life comes about through pain. A record that dares to grapple with the big theme of our essential loneliness."
£5.87   Used & New from: £2.79
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

You And Me Both
3.  You And Me Both by Yazoo
The list author says:
  "Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke didn't even like each other when they made this record. It's an unspeakably beautiful, tender and angry synth landscape. Charmingly naive and THAT voice, WOW!!"
£18.16   Used & New from: £3.74
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret
4.  Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret by Soft Cell
The list author says:
  "Naughty and nice noodling synths and desperately erotic confessional electro-pop. Pioneers of synth perve. The track 'Youth' so poignantly tells of the beauty and decay of worldly hope."
£4.99   Used & New from: £1.48
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Too Low For Zero
5.  Too Low For Zero by Elton John

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

No Sense of Sin
6.  No Sense of Sin by Lotus Eaters
The list author says:
  "Unbelievably beautiful collection of heartfelt sentiment. Stories about the wonderment and fleeting nature of young love and about the newness of things. Sensual, feelgood, pastoral and very English."
Used & New from: £6.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Metamatic...Plus
7.  Metamatic...Plus by John Foxx
The list author says:

The Fad Gadget Singles
8.  The Fad Gadget Singles by Frank Tovey
