Top 100 Music Albums of 1984 by Gowi (2020)

One of the finest years of music, and a close contender to being the year that [for me] defines the eighties. Featuring standout records within the spectrum of hard rock, heavy metal, alternative rock, punk rock, art pop, and everything in-between, it isn’t hard to see why 1984 is such a well-loved year for contemporary music.

There's a whole lot here I have no idea about. Lots to explore. I have a soft spot for that Bangles album, and I'm kind of surprised to see it so high up on such a comprehensive chart. There's a few other we have in common.
