Tears For Fears
Big Daddy Kane
The talent pool was too ridiculous then and the album's then too. The last era that had originality, artist's played their instruments, MTV was actually great (before Real World made it's debut), broke colour barriers, the last era that had innovative moments and cultural impact musically.
I saw the 70s and 80s and witnessed many great talents in their prime. Hell, I can remember when artist's of my generation were even outspoken about how much music was changing for the worse. Frank Zappa, Michael Jackson, Prince, Gladys Knight, Donna Summer and many more in the 90s
