Wednesday Question: Best Album of the 1980s?
Metal and hard rock fans rejoice: we're about to take our Wednesday question poll back to a decade where heavy music was king of the world. Living in the western world in the 1980s was all about excess. It was the era of greed; people wanted more money, drugs and fun, and it seemed like the gravy train would never end. The music business was only different because it took this to the extreme, with live shows and backstage indulgences being pushed to the limits. There was also a lot of great music being made. New digital synths and drum machines helped artists explore new sounds, and in the underground there were exciting new musical movements which would later sow the seeds for the 90s indie rock revolution. We've already conquered the 1990s and 2000s with your nominations and their resulting top 10 lists, so this weeks question is: What are the best albums of the 1980s? The rules: nominate one album per comment, and upvote any that you agree with. The album had to be released between 1980 and 1989. The resulting poll could be on a knife edge - it's either going to be very average or completely awesome. It's down to you now - pull out the goods and we'll stack up the results in what will hopefully be a definitive top 10 rundown on Friday.
