TOP 10: NEW-WAVE BANDS OF THE 1980'S

With its first studio album in 25 years, Missing Persons featuring Dale Bozzio is back. Bozzio -- the lone original member of the newly reformed band -- bursting to show there's energy comparable to the 1980s-era original incarnation that released "Walking in L.A.," ''Words" and "Destination Unknown." The 12-track release is largely a showcase for Bozzio and Billy Sherwood, who's credited not only with drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, percussion and backing vocals, but having written most of the songs, too. That means the title track is an apt one, at least in regard to the original band's lineup. The focus, however, is on Bozzio. Her 1980s new wave chirping and visualized kinetic persona propelled that version of Missing Persons to stardom on MTV.
