Buddha Belly: Obama epitomizes the cult of personality.

Only if you are a Teabagger, in which case you wouldn't be listening to "black" music anyway.

For some reason I always listen to Vivid after Bad Brain's Rock For Light and follow it up with Fishbone's Reality of My Surroundings. It's a very natural progression.

/Vernon Reid is a hugely underrated guitarist and Corey is an amazing frontman.

gilgigamesh: One the rare great rock albums of the 80s, in a sea of utter crap.  I'd be hard pressed to think of a close rival.

There was a LOT of great rock in the 80's that didn't get any airplay ...

Riot - Fire Down Under - HIGHLY recommended. It's a crime these guys got overlooked.
Black Sabbath/Dio - Heaven and Hell/Mob Rules and Holy Diver are gems of classic metal.
Gary Moore - Shape of Things - terribly underrated.
Triumph - Allied Forces - great band with a unique sound.
Rush - Permanent Waves/Moving Pictures - not the usual stuff, there are GREAT tracks on those albums ...

that's just off the top of my head. Then there's:

Dixie Dregs, Allan Holdsworth, The Players with Scott Henderson & Jeff Berlin, Omar Hakim, Weather Report, SRV, and so on ...

Just because you don't hear it on the radidio, doesn't mean there ain't good music out there. Jes sayin ...
