I'm ranking according to the cultural impact of these albums, trying not to emphasise my current personal taste. I made this change to most of my charts because I find my own tastes far too changeable to use as a basis for creating a chart that I'm happy with over time.
That idea of a chart possesses a great deal of overlooked merit. I myself find it very appealing as my tastes can change very quickly, but I do have an idea what albums are culturally important.

However, if cultural impact really was the issue, Back in Black would be much nearer number 1 than number 73, and I would say the most likely #1 there is. Although no heavy metal fan, I can testify to the fact that Back in Black is the second-biggest-selling album of all time, had major musical impact on metal and even grunge, and as I can unfortunately testify from bully-boy children writing “AC/DC” graffiti on my ruler at school had tremendous cultural impact.

N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton, from the opposite end of the 1980s, should have been Top 50 at least if cultural impact as the author defines it was the issue, but it is not on the list at all. Straight Outta Compton defined the gangsta rap genre and paved the way for the conservative attack on rap’s violence – by people who ignore equally violent heavy metal music because they perceive metal as the music of the “poor white trash”.

Thanks for that thoughtful feedback. Good points!

I'll think on Back in Black. Maybe make it a bit higher. Album sales and influence on other artists are key factors. I hadn't thought of this album influencing grunge especially before though Think

Yeah. Straight Outta Compton should def be on there. The simple reason is I've not listened to it yet (I'm pretty rubbish in my knowledge of hip hop really) I'll put that on my to do list.

It's pretty challenging to rank albums this way and I'm limited to my own frame of reference (I can't claim to have explored that many genres in real depth) so it's helpful to gain constructive feedback from the community.

Great stab at a nearly impossible task. Also I enjoyed this concept - it was refreshing. Everyone is on about "unique" charts, and frankly those sometimes bore me. It's important to remember the foundation.

Thanks and yeah I get that about unique and personal charts. I got bored of a lot of them too. I was even bored of my own chart!
