It is today 30 years since the album New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) by Simple Minds was released.
This album was a commercial success. Simple Minds moved away from the cool industrial style used in the previous album (Sons and Fascination) that I love. Instead, this album might be easier to listen to and that might have been one reason why this album was more successful. There are lots of good tracks to listen to. Here are two that you might remember. Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize.
Lots of other really good music was also released in 1982. Have a look at the list at Wikipedia that includes a few other albums in my collection
