MA-120 - Vacuum-Tube Predictionz

This is a socko, boffo compilation of songs from that storied era, the 1980s -- all gazing with hope, resignation, fear, or longing, into that hazy future.  What would the age to come be like?  A fascist state? a world under the gun of alien overlords? a time of mechanicals that would service every man's (physical) desires?  Or just a burned-out husk, a planet killed by its most parasitic lifeform?

Listen to these "Vacuum-Tube Predictionz" and decide  for yourself!
