Default Top 100 Albums of the 80s

MB's Top 100 Albums of the 80s - Rate Your Music

CURRENT LIST ^


Okay this is going to be a giant collaborative effort and the goal is at the end to have the top 100 albums from the 60s to the 00s. I figure we should start with the 80s just because. So everyone should post what they think the best albums of the 80s are. I'm not going to give you a size regulation or anything you could post 100 or you could post 1. If you think someone nominated an album that isn't worthy then we'll argue it out and decide whether or not it belongs there. I've kind of composed a fairly extensive list already, let me know if you have any objections to the picks on there and suggest your own!

Please note, this list is completely tentative. Some of these albums I just mentioned because they tend to get but I don't feel they should be on. Once we compose a decent sized list then we can start knocking stuff off.

Also there's no limit to how many artists can be on one album. Also there's a huge lack of metal on this I know that's because I don't like metal. I know Maiden, Motorhead and all that released good albums in the 80s so if Selzter or jackhammer could take an interest here that'd be great.

Do you think both the Sky's Gone Out and Flat Field could go on there? That's like 70 albums at most there, we have room.

I think you're OK with those Fall /Mary Chain / New Order albums. Most diehard Fall fans would choose Hex Enduction Hour over This Nations Saving Grace but This Nations Saving Grace seems to be the most popular in general.

As for Motorhead all their best stuff came out in the 70s but Orgasmatron is their biggest album of the 80s. It's OK but I wouldn't say it's one of the best.
