Final Four: Best Rock Album of the 80's

A great final 4!  I must go w/ The Joshua Tree by U2 and Back in Black by the "Thunder from Down Under" - AC/DC .  These are both very good but very different albums.  Both groups have been putting out albums since these two but have not been able to top these efforts.

Final Four: Best Rock Album of the 80's

All 4 albums are incredible! I'll go for the easy (I hope you realize I am being EXTREMELY sarcastic when I wrote that) match up first and place Back in Black 1980 - AC/DC in the final against ...

This is a really tough decision and I'm half-tempted to flip a coin on it but I'm gonna go with The Joshua Tree 1987 - U2.

OK. My picks are made and now I have to get out of here before I change my mind.

EXCELLENT JOB, C-ROCKS!!!!!!
