Top 100 Music Albums of the 1980s by Tamthebam (2019)
Not my most favourite decade but once I started compiling this chart I began to realise that it wasn't that bad! I went through some bad times during this time so that may have influenced my choices, I loved Linda Ronstadt's album "What's New" and this made me investigate the original torch singers who first sang the songs on this great albun of covers. RnB/Soul music was what I was listening to most at this time. I enjoy all types of music except heavy metal. I did not include any compilation albums that are already included in my year charts.

Shouting Stage and Living My Life. Nice move!!!
You have a lot of the big hitters from the 80s yet also enough of your own picks to make it a unique chart. 32 albums in common with mine. The 80s were a difficult time for me too. I went from childhood to adolescence then. The first half was largely bliss the 2nd half of the 80s was pants. I still can't listen to half of the music from the year 1987, save the Joshua Tree, Sign O' The Times and Whitney H. But I have to remember there were more good times than bad times. Overall a great chart. Good work Tam!
I know what you mean when you say that the reputation of the eighties is far different (and far worse) from what you come up with when you actually start thinking about the albums that came out then. I love Graceland and Murmur and Remain in Light, and your inclusion of Sign 'O' the Times in your top ten makes a compelling case that I ought to find room for it in my own eighties chart. Thanks for sharing this excellent chart!
Your chart has a very different focus than mine, but 14 artists in common that`s a lot!
You are more into soul, jazz and pop than I am, but I appreciate lot`s of your picks.
