The Records “The Records” (1979)

Sure, their flawless, jet-setting single “Starry Eyes” is reason enough to pick up The Records’ debut, but the album as a whole is stuffed with more sugary goodness than your average box of Frosted Flakes. The first side is jam-packed with the restless “All Messed Up and Ready to Go,” adolescent buzz of “Teenarama,” minor key mood piece “Girls That Don’t Exist,” and choice deep cut in the lingering ballad “Up All Night,” while the remainder is highlighted by the punchy rock of “Girl,” nervous “Insomnia,” and jukebox hero tale, “Another Star.” With the requisite vocal harmonies and ringing guitars filled out with the occasional organ or synthesizer, The Records is steadfast in it’s delivery of classic power pop confection. –Ben

    It goes without saying that you want to start with a good concept before you inverst heavily in iterating on
    it…. “Heroes of the Storm” doesn’t just let
    you become a Blizzard character. It seemed obvious that with the success oof Starcraft a sequel would be forthcoming, but it wwas a long time before fans even received word that
    one would be developed. It has a spiked mace as the main joystick,
    contains 32 buttons, and has a built-in credit card slot for instant micro transactions.
    In Mists of Pandaria,players have no idea exactly what Blizzard will do
    with many of these points.
