    Well, gosh, why not?

    Not in any order, I can't rank things.

    Metallica- Master of Puppets

    Slayer- Seasons in the Abyss

    Peter Gabriel- So

    Rush- Moving Pictures

    King Crimson- Discipline

    Marillion- Misplaced Childhood

    Iron Maiden- Powerslave

    Paul Simon- Graceland

    Guns 'n Roses- Appetite For Destruction

    Ozzy Osbourne- Blizzard of Oz

    Overall, the best decade of metal, as far as I'm concerned. IMO, metal was the only style of popular music that really flourished in the 80s, with some exceptions.

    I'll have to go digging through the collection tonight, but it's a pretty good bet that Peter Gabriel's Security will be my number one.

    10. Guns N Roses "Appetite for Destruction"

    9. Sonic Youth "Daydream Nation" -1988

    8. The Smiths "Meat is Murder" -1985

    7. Bruce Springsteen "Nebraska" -1982

    6. REM "Green" -1988

    5. Talking Heads "Remain in Light" -1980

    4. The Clash "Combat Rock" -1982

    3. Beastie Boys "Paul's Boutique" 1989

    2. Elvis Costello and the Attractions "Imperial Bedroom" -1982

    1. Pixies "Surfer Rosa" -1988

    The order is kinda sketchy... except for Surfer Rosa, which I think is the single most important album of the decade, the others could and will change from day-to-day.

    Honorables:

    -John Lennon "Double Fantasy" -1980

    -the Cure "Disintegration" -1989

    -Sugarcubes "Life's too Good" -1989

    I know I need some female artists on here, but I'm drawing a blank right now....

    Hmmm...the dominance of metal, the emergence of rap...when "alternative" actually was...

    In the 80's I was into (at one time or another) everything from pop to hard rock to metal to rap to college rock so this could end up being an interesting list:

    The Replacements - Tim

    Husker Du - New Day Rising

    Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking

    R.E.M. - Reckoning

    Pixies - Doolittle

    New Order - Substance

    The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

    The Stone Roses (eponymous)

    10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe

    Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique

    Honorable Mention To:

    Def Leppard - Hysteria

    Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet

    Bryan Adams - Reckless (a guilty pleasure even today)

    Depeche Mode - Music For The Masses

    Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

    LL Cool J - Walking With A Panther

    Metallica - Ride The Lightning & Master Of Puppets

    Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime

    And Kelley_B - While not my favorite CD of the 80's (although close), I do think that Disintegration is The Cure's best work by a long shot.

    Van Halen - 5150 and 1984

    Metallica - I like all their 80's stuff which is more than I can say about their 90's output.
