        • I've just read the wiki article on the recording of 'Agent Provocateur' by Foreigner. It seems to have been a very long drawn out recording process, not being helped by original producer Trevor Horn seemingly quickly losing interest and (reading between the lines) being more concerned with how 'Relax' by Frankie Goes To Hollywood' was selling! In the end the band drafted in Alex Sadkin, the Thompson Twins producer, which is why lead singer of The Thompson Twins, Tom Bailey, is featured (on synthesizer) on 'I Want To Know what Love Is'.

            'Agent Provocateur' was definitely a disappointment after such a long wait and not a patch on '4'...

            Kerrang's reviewer was distinctly underwhelmed:

            "A few tasty moments amidst a sea of dross....three years waiting for this?

            To be fair, the album kicked off well with the excellent "Tooth and Nail" and classy future single "That Was Yesterday" but was derailed by the dreaded IWTKWLI at track three and never really recovered....

            • I bought the 'That Was Yesterday' single but was never keen on 'I Want To Know What Love Is'.

              I'd always quite liked Foreigner, going back to 1977, and had a few of their singles, but after this album I lost interest in them.

                  Would I be right in thinking this isn't a 52 week chart? The 3rd January -29th December 1984 end of year album chart overall chart by music week has:

                  16. ELIMINATOR ZZ Top 85 POWERSLAVE Iron Maiden
                  90 FUGAZI Marillion
                  93 PERFECT STRANGERS Deep Purple
                  94 1984 Van Halen
                  Dio and rush must have been like 100-110 in overall chart, or possibly should have been in the top 100?

                  • The Rock/Metal chart is from a different compiler (MRIB) and will most likely be sales from specialist / rock oriented shops.

                      You say that but the chart in the 02/02/1985 issue of Music Week is identical to the one posted above..... Of course perhaps they were different in 1984, but they seem to be the same now?

                        Possibly Music Week were publishing the MRIB Rock Chart at this point? I know they used to publish the MRIB Indie Chart but switched to compiling their own at some point in early 1985.

                            Makes sense, was hard to believe a venom and two manowar albums would have outsold outsold a David Gilmour solo album, but in rock oriented shops sounds plausible

                              • Tangerine Dream is a mistake - i noticed this in Music Week a few weeks ago. It's because it's on a label called Heavy Metal Worldwide but it's not a rock album. It's a synth soundtrack. https://www.discogs.com/release/7721...eam-Flashpoint

                                According to the film's Wiki page the CD release of the album was recalled as a pressing error rendered it unplayable!
                                More detail on the CD page here https://www.discogs.com/release/2355...eam-Flashpoint

                                See the 85 top 200 thread for more TD today!

                                • We've now arrived back at the point where the chart was taken over "in house" by Spotlight Publications.

                                  Hence, no prior week positions (and several rather debatable inclusions!)

                                  • Spotlight Research / Publications used to compile the specialist charts which appeared in sister publication Record Mirror but RM seems to have stopped publishing these charts by this point so presumably the Rock charts were made available to Kerrang. Music Week (like Kerrang and RM, also owned by Spotlight Publications) also changed chart compiler on 16 March 1985, also from MRIB to its own research department. It would surely have been cheaper to have used the same compiler. At least the MW Heavy Metal chart doesn't include 'No Jacket Required' though most of the other albums are in there.

                                      To quote the note in the magazine:

                                      "Spotlight Publications' very own research department is now kompiling the charts in-house, in klose konsultation with the Kerrang! krew and a wide variety of record retailers. We're konfident that this new approach will make our charts better than ever before and a truly accurate reflection of the type of disks you are buying..."
