Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" is the most controversial film of the year, and it only opens today. Thousands of people already have seen it at preview screenings, and everywhere I go, people are discussing it. Some of them are bothered by it; they think it will cause trouble.
It's one of those moments that seem calculated by the gods purely to make you feel decrepit. I'm talking about the 20th anniversary of the week that one of the finest films of the 1980s - in fact, of all time - snuck under the wire and made it into the last weary months of that addled decade.

Each week, we take a look at some obscure or overlooked entries in the catalogs of music's big names. MAGNET's Bryan Bierman focuses on an album that, for whatever reason, slipped through the cracks in favor of its more popular siblings.
