Rd. 1 Best Rock Album of the 80's (EAST BRACKET)

Beta Region:

1.   Back in Black '80 - AC/DC  -Not my fave AC/DC, but no denying it's a classic...

16. Doolittle '89 - Pixies

 


 

8.   Combat Rock '82 - The Clash

9.   The Pretenders '80 - The Pretenders  -The best of The Pretenders vs. not the best of The Clash...

 


 

5.   Master of Puppets ' 86 - Metallica

12. Holy Diver '83 - DIO

 


 

4.   Dr. Feelgood '89 - Motley Crue

13. Permanent Vacation '87 - Aerosmith

 


 

3.   Synchronicity '83 - The Police  -Hmmm...  Tough.  My Fave Police is actually Zenyatta Mondatta, and it's a great album by Peter...

14. So '86 - Peter Gabriel

 


 

6.   Mental Health '83 - Quiet Riot

11. Blackout '82 - Scorpions


 

7.   Skid Row '89 - Skid Row

10. Violent Femmes '82 - Violent Femmes  -This really is a great album...

 


 

2.   1984 '84 - Van Halen

15. Ace of Spades '80 - Motorhead  -I know it will lose on the basis of popularity, but Ace of Spades is a truly original hard rock/speed rock classic, and trumps 1984 by far, IMO...

 

Charlie Region:

1.   The Wall '79 - Pink Floyd  -No contest.  Even though I consider it to be more a Roger Waters album with Pink Floyd backing him, it's still one of the all-around greatest albums of all time, IMHO, and a high water mark for the concept album in general...

16. Fair Warning '81 Van Halen

 


 

8.   Escape '81 - Journey

9.   Pump '89 - Aerosmith

 


 

5.   Shout at the Devil '83 - Motley Crue

12. License to Ill '86 - Beastie Boys

 


 

4.   Slippery When Wet '86 - Bon Jovi

13. Ride the Lightning '84 - Metallica

 


 

3.   Born in the USA '84 - Bruce Springsteen

14. Surfing with the Alien '87 - Joe Satriani

 


 

6.   Open Up and Say...Ahh '88 - Poison

11. British Steel '80 - Judas Priest  -Definitely a classic...

 


 

7.   Speaking in Tongue '83 - Talking Heads

10. IV '82 - Toto

 


 

2.   Moving Pictures '81 - Rush  -Don't tell the missus (she's a BIG Billy fan), but this is perhaps, along with 2112, Rush's greatest studio release.  No contest for me personally...Wink

15. An Innocent Man '83 - Billy Joel

-Thanks again, Cleve- I appreciate all the effort!
