Pretty Dated Machine: Here are 25 records celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2014

 

While everyone is busy compiling their Best of 2013 lists, we’re already looking ahead to next year. 2014 is certain to be noteworthy because we’re in the middle of a sweet spot for anniversaries and milestones: records released in 1989 are turning 25, the Class of 1984 braces for the big 3-Oh, and some heavyweight Britpop LPs are bratty teenagers no longer.

But for our money, the juice is in 1989, so as we count down to 2014, here are 25 records set to celebrate their 25th anniversary over the course of next year. Get those special-special edition deluxe re-re-re-release presses ready!
