Great selection of 80s albums! We have 20 in common, nice. Love how high you have Graceland, quite a charming album by Simon. Bunch of REM and Tom Waits which is awesome. Anyone who likes Tom Waits should have other great charts. Human League Dare is highly rated that's good! Good work! Bunch of bands in common as well. Oh and I checked out your chart because of Laurie Anderson.

This is a really fun and diverse eighties chart! The 80's are notorious for a lot of really bad music, but I'm happy to report that pretty much everything here has held up really well for me over the years. I love Graceland, Remain in Light, The Stone Roses, and Murmur. I also really like seeing Peter Gabriel's So in your top ten, as that's an album that I listened to a ton when I was a teenager, and still enjoy very much. Also glad to see Jane's Addiction and Nick Cave amply represented. A really great chart!
