Have I got good news for you!
First: the following albums, released in 1983, are as close to WWII as to the present day:
- Billy Joel: An Innocent Man
- Police: Synchronicity
- Marillion: Script for a Jester’s Tear
- U2: War
- Genesis: Genesis
- David Bowie: Let’s Dance
Second: remember the summer of Britpop, 1995?
- Pulp: Different Class
- Oasis: (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?
- Blur: The Great Escape
- Supergrass: I Should Coco
- Radiohead: The Bends
Those albums are all closer to the Beatles than they are to the present day.
Finally: the last “proper” Beatles album, Abbey Road (released 1969) is closer to World War One (not WWII) than to the present day.
