Default Your favorite albums of the 80s by year

Two summers ago we did this for the 1970's.

Now it's the 1980's.


I didn't use any soundtracks or compilation albums.

What's yours? Here's mine.



1980: The Clash, Sandinista. It's a perfect album for the new decade because it literally is all over the place and all of it righteous. While there's many odd songs, there are many incredible ones.




Runner up: Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell. One of the heaviest albums of all time.


1981: This is extremely difficult because 1981 is one of the greatest calendar years for music albums ever. Just look at these freaking albums that came out:
Echo & The Bunnymen - Heaven Up Here (classic)
Gun Club - Fire of Love (total classic)
Gang of Four - Solid Gold
Black Flag - Damaged (incredible)
Teardrop Explodes - Wlider
U2 - October (underrated)
Mission of Burma - Signals Calls & Marches (incredible)
Police - Ghost In the Machine (their best)
X - Wild Gift (incredible)

But my favorite is: Psychedelic Furs, Talk Talk Talk. It is the richest SOUND. There is nothing like this record and its sensory overload barrage of pop melodies cramming ever song to the brim.



Runner up: Cramps, Psychedelic Jungle. You simply cannot listen to this and NOT want to learn how to play the guitar.


1982: X, Under the Big Black Sun. Probably one of the best American bands ever and their very best record.



Runner up: The Jam, The Gift. Great record to usher in the "MTV 80's" sound.


1983: REM - Murmur. Despite the fact that they started sucking by the end of the 80's this is one hellaciously creepy album. No one ever made bass-drums-guitar-vocals sound like this.



Runner up: Husker Du - Metal Circus. Filled the void left by Black Flag's mysterious disappearance throughout 1983.


1984: Black Flag, My War. Speak of the devil. Just a completely insane album with no precedent. Corrosive guitar and manic lyrics. 100% pure adrenaline.



Runner up: Minor Threat EP. Between these two I honestly had no idea MTV was going on. I buried my face in this stuff as a kid.


1985: Jesus & Mary Chain, Psychocandy. What didn't matter until about 1989 and really blossomed in the 90's started right here. This was the first attempt to make some sort of pop music from sheer noise.



Runner up: REM, Fables of the Reconstruction. I could listen to this all day long at that time. The beginning of "American indie rock".


1986: XTC, Skylarking. Genius pop songs over and over and over, and production by Todd Rundgren.



Runner up: Cro Mags, The Age of Quarrel. loud... fast... ugly


1987: John Cougar Mellencamp, The Lonesome Jubilee. I talked about this album in another thread. It is its own sound - there isn't much of a comparison to anything. I like that.



Runner up: Replacements, Pleased to Meet Me. Another great American punk album.


1988: Public Enemy, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Because I was a white suburban punk rock kid with severe anxiety about the late 80's, and therefore I was their target listening audience because I thought going around quoting lyrics about Joanne Chesimard and Louis Farrakhan made me a scary threat to the establishment, man.



Runner up: Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking.


1989: Stone Roses. Although the album drags a bit, the first 5 songs or so are complete and total classics. That's fair enough.



Runner up: Galaxie 500, On Fire. This is the closest American late-80s indie rock got to being absolutely perfect.

Permanent Vacation came out in 1987 as well. As much as I love Aerosmith,
especially at that point in their career, There's no arguing that Appetite for
Destruction was the better album. Permanent Vacation was huge for the band
in their "Comeback", and it was the best thing they produced since Rocks (1976),
but it wasn't their best of the comeback transition. I thought PUMP was the best
thing they did in that 3-4 year stretch of getting back together, writing good stuff
again, and going back on Tour sober enough to put on Kick Ass Shows.
Permanent Vac. was my #2 that year.

Let's be honest, any album that came out prior to Jock Jams Vol. I just wasn't worth listening to.

Did you get the special edition Blu Ray collectors edition of "Space Jam"? Lots of rare footage. Comes in a big binder.

I think they have it at Best Buy.

I am shocked by this - Appetite for Destruction and Hysteria were released the same year (1987). Appetite was actually released first - 2 weeks before Hysteria.

Mutt Lange, who produced Hysteria, was actually considered for Appetite as well.

You will also be disappointed to find out that Chumbawamba "Tubthumping" came out in the 90s.

This guy is talented! He also produced AC/DC and Shania Twain (whom he married for a few years).

Default Re: Your favorite albums of the 80s by year

Some years were loaded, so it was tough to pick a fave for 1980 or 1989. The 80s are underrated musically. The golden age of underground music, really. Forgive all the runners up. These lists are full Sophie's Choice dilemmas.


1980: XTC – Black Sea (Runners up: Squeeze – Argy Bargy, Iron Maiden – S/T, Bowie)
1981: King Crimson – Discipline (Runners up: Penguin Cafι Orchestra – Penguin Cafι Orchestra, Oingo Boingo – Only a Lad, Grace Jones – Nightclubbing)
1982: Sparks – Angst in my Pants (Runners up: Duran Duran – Rio, Philip Glass – Glassworks; Judas Priest – Screaming for Vengeance; MJ – Thriller; REM – Chronic Town)
1983: Tie between Bad Brains - Rock for Light and ESG – Come Away with ESG (Runners up: Violent Femmes, Eurythmics, Cocteau Twins, Aztec Camera)
1984: Metallica – Ride the Lightning (Runner up: Steve Vai – Flexible, Hanoi Rocks – Two Steps from the Move, Purple Rain, Meat Puppets)
1985: The Cult – Love (Runners up: Cure – The Head on the Door, Dire Straits – Brothers in Arms, The Fall – This Nation’s Saving Grace)
1986: Housemartins – London 0 Hull 4 (Runners up: Paul Simon – Graceland, Megadeth – Peace Sells, REM – Life’s Rich Pageant, Nanci Griffith – Last of the True Believers . . . I just wanted Megadeth and Nanci Griffith to be in the same sentence.)
1987: Game Theory – Lolita Nation (Runners up: Sonic Youth – Sister, INXS – Kick; Dukes of the Stratosphere; GNR)
1988: Jane’s Addiction – Nothing’s Shocking (Runners up: Pixies – Surfer Rosa, Mudhoney, Metallica, NWA, Soundgarden, Manowar!)
1989 Fugazi – 13 Songs (Great year, so lots of runners up: Pixies, Faith No More, Voivod, Stone Roses, The Ordinaires, Lou Reed, Beastie Boys, NIN, Operation Ivy, B52s, King’s X, Jungle Brothers, and I’ll even throw in Phish, when they were more interesting. Lollapalooza was around the corner.)

Great list. Forgot about Cocteau Twins. Sonic Youths 90s albums were my faves. I didn't pick a Smiths record.

I liked Surfer Rosa too. I also considered Throwing Muses 1st.

Default Re: Your favorite albums of the 80s by year

This is weird, in terms of 'favorite', as my tastes have mellowed, and what I listed to a lot then would differ from now. There's kind of a mix of both below.

1980 Zenyatta Mondata, The Police (runner up Closer Joy Division)
1981 Fair Warning, Van Halen
1982 Walk Among Us, Misfits
1983 Speaking in Tongues, Talking Heads
1984 Let It Be, The Replacements (Ocean Rain Echo, 1984 by Halen up there)
1985 New Day Rising, Husker Du
1986 REM – Life’s Rich Pageant
1987 You're living all over me, Dinosaur Jr.
1988 Surfer Rosa, The Pixies
1989 (tie) Doolittle Pixies, New Order Technique

Big ups for previous mention of Black Sea, great album.

Loved Southern Rock as well, but never "warmed up" to Molly Hatchet when they released
their first album. I always thought they tried too hard to imitate Lynyrd Skynyrd. If you
listen to their stuff, almost every song they recorded both Dave Hlubek and Danny Joe
Brown did their best to sound like Ronnie Van Zant and even used those little added
phrases between verses and lines the way Ronnie did.

They did have two songs though that I absolutely loved to listen to. Dreams I'll Never See,
their first hit and a Allman Brothers cover, and when I wanted to just listen to something
Loud and Kick Ass, I'd put Bounty Hunter on and turn the volume up to Max and enjoy.
