Top 100 Music Albums of the 1980s by Hayden (2015)  

« View previous chartView next chart »

This chart isn't based off my overall chart, or influence, or importance, or anything. It's just what albums from the 80's I'm enjoying right now.

I found that the 80's were the only decade that I didn't like the 'big' albums in (Thriller, Back To Black, Stone Roses, Appetite To Destruction, Joshua Tree, It Takes A Nation Of Millions, Murmur, Paul's Boutique) ,but preferred the undiscovered stuff, and all the experimental albums that no one really found out about. (well...Some people found out about them I guess, other wise I'd most likely never get hold of them)

Chart updated: 08/21/2015 21:45 (Created: 12/04/2011 23:39). Chart size: 100 albums.

Again a brilliant decade Chart: Very much feeling for the 80´s!
Lot´s of typical 80`s bands with brilliant albums.
I think the BEA members who don´t like the 80`s music stick to much in the traditional rock`n`roll thinking.
There are so many gorgeous "New-Wave" bands - as your chart proofs.
Lot´s of rare picks...

I don't understand how Murmur and Stone Roses are "Big albums" especially when Queen is Dead is supposedly not, for the record all 3 are classics

Didn't know you liked Young Marble Giants :)
Beautiful top 10 ! I haven't added any EPs to my charts, but You Made Me Realise is a P.E.R.F.E.C.T. release !
