Final Four: Best Rock Album of the 80's

Here are my final four votes Cleve!  By the way, I am disappointed that the Final Four features 4 #1 seeds.  So boring!Wink

The Joshua Tree - U2 - A very tough choice for me, as I love both albums.

The Wall - Pink Floyd - Another tough pick, but every time I hear The Wall, I love it and the songs get stuck in my head for days.  So I'm picking Floyd.

Keep up the great work Cleve!
