Top 100 Music Albums of the 1980s by pa (2019)

"And then my mind made its first earnest effort to comprehend what had been infused into it concerning heaven and hell; and for the first time it recoiled, baffled; and for the first time glancing behind, on each side, and before it, it saw all round an unfathomed gulf: it felt the one point where it stood--the present; all the rest was formless cloud and vacant depth; and it shuddered at the thought of tottering, and plunging amid that chaos."
"Jane Eyre"
by Charlotte Bronte

Smiths. Cure. Bauhaus. Joy Division. Hurray! And even some essential 80s pop like Cyndi Lauper. The 80s was such an exceptional decade for pop it seems a shame not to have a few cheesy entries. but you have. So good. Enjoyed viewing this.

Exceptional chart! I love Double Nickels on the Dime, Remain in Light, Murmur, and The Trinity Session, among many of your other selections. Meat Puppets II is a pretty inspired top ten selection, as well--definitely an album that has never gotten enough love (except from Kurt Cobain).

Great great chart!
Incredibly good picks that everybody should have like Mercedes Sosa, Abdullah Ibrahim, Bauhaus or John Cale!
Why are they nearly forgotten?
- to Kitaro: You`re right: My album of 1986 is not the original. I changed the date and the cover to the original album of 1983. (Who knows if it might have been realeased in japan even earlier?!)
