Hi, as of 29 August 2019 this is my list of the best albums of the 1980s

I dedicated hours an hours, repeating almost every album 2-4 times to create the ultimate List and ratings for every album and song

i left a lot of awesome's albums out, sadly can't be a top 200 :(

Hope you can enjoy, discover and share your comments with me

The number i put on every album, is the average rating of every song of the album based on 100


Thank you!!!

:)

Strange....we have 28 great albums in common yet you gave my chart a 40/100? I guess you must really dislike the other 72 albums on mine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

One of the strangest chart by far. Marillion/Queensryche/Sonic Youth/Michael Jackson in a row... Nice are the R.E.M. in their place
