5нαкαtαк - Nigнτвirdѕ (1982/2009)
Classic British jazz-pop-funk record from the decade where an overabundance of glitz and schmaltz alike contributed to some damn fine highway burners for a late night and a long smoke. Hell, God knows how many keyboards were sold back in the day on the sheer memorability of this album's title track, but Quiet Storm floor-stompers such as 'Easier Said Than Done' and 'Light On My Life' are equally sharp and introspective in execution.
To sum it all up in a sentence or so: melancholic, rhythmic glimmerings of sonic brilliance in just under a single, moonlit hour. Don't go home without it!
