Top 100 Music Albums of the 1980s by Larcx13 (2022)
All my lists have been edited so that only albums I've listened to are on the charts.
Never been the biggest fan of the 80s.
Top 5 Artists:
Stevie Ray Vaughn
A+ // A record that approaches perfection. // 100-96%
A // A great record with only a couple weaker tracks. // 95-91%
A- // A great record that is either over-produced, micro-marketed or just missing something to get rid of that minus. // 90-86%
B+ // A very good record that sometimes flirts with the half-assed. // 85-81%
B // A good record often thoroughly enjoyed by the artist's fanbase. Nothing extraordinary, but definitely decent. // 80-76%
*** // Honorable Mention. For those who cherish it. // 80-79%
** // Honorable Mention. For those who enjoy it. // 78-77%
* // Honorable Mention. For those who like its over-riding aesthetic. // 76-75%
B- // Has a fair few good tracks but is either too long, too repetitive, or just plain too much of something at times. // 75-71%
C+ // A hackwork kind of record. Pick and choose your favorites. // 70-66%
C // Professional record with seemingly no substance OR a decent try at something different. Often corny. // 65-60%
C- // Honest work that doesn't quite cut it. Also often quite corny. // 59-50%
✂️ // 1 or 2 good songs could be cut out and added to a greatest hits album. // 49-45%
💣 // A grade of D, E or F lands a "dud". It fails in every way. // 44-0%

av = trimmed mean average rating an item has currently received.
n = number of ratings an item has currently received.
m = minimum number of ratings required for an item to appear in a 'top-rated' chart (currently 10).

Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)
This chart is rated in the top 3% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.8/100, a mean average of 92.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.5.

This is my kind of 80s heavy list
And where is Thriller?
For someone who didn't love the eighties, you've managed to pull together an excellent list of albums from that decade. I feel like the discussion begins with Doolittle, but it's also gratifying to see Double Nickels on the Dime getting its due here as well.
Nice to see Dead Kennedys at No.1. Lots of other great stuff, too - De La Soul, PE, Pixies, NWA, Eric B & Rakim... love it.
Honestly not a bad list dude, lots of excellent rap, rock, metal, punk records etc... HOWEVER!! I know for a FACT that this list would change if you went and listened to the freaking PIXIES!!!!! Other than that, you really should look into the Smiths, Talking Heads, The Cure, Stone Roses, Sonic Youth, Joy Division, Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, Prince, Paul Simon, Beastie Boys, Dire Straits, U2, Tom Waits, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, Def Leppard, Kraftwerk, DE LA SOUL, Tom Petty lmao, Peter Gabriel, The Police...etc etc. For real though, just listen to the fucking pixies please

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
