Greatest '80s Albums

81Off the Wall - Michael Jackson

THRILLER SHOULD BE number 1, BAD SHOULD BE NO.2 AND THIS SHOULD BE NO.3! THIS ALBUM IS A MASTERPIECE FROM THE KING OF POP! HOW COME ITS ON 84?

82Meat Is Murder - The Smiths
83East of the Sun, West of the Moon - A-ha

84The River - Bruce Springsteen

One of the most underrated albums of all time. I mean, OK, it isn't perfect, but everybody, except Springsteen's fans, usually rate this album very low. It deserves to be much higher than 36.

85New Jersey - Bon Jovi

5 top ten hits the only rock band to do that easilyin the top ten best eighties songs

very underrated album and the tour with about 230 concerts was amazing.. - richie4life

86She's So Unusual - Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper is so unusual when I checked this enormously cute music CD out at a Harris County Public Library a few times. Cuteness meter for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun": 100% girly. - kristyrosepetal4

87Bark At The Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
88Keeper of the Seven Keys, Part 2 - Helloween

Great Power Metal Album. Without this, my favorite style might not exist.

Great album this and it's predecessor. B.B

89Escape - Journey

This is my favorite album of all time. It includes the hits: Don't Stop Believin', Stone In Love, Who's Cring Now and Open Arms. It also has the not as well known, but incredible, song Mother, Father. The album is well crafted, having good flow from start to finish. This album made it to number one on the charts in the fall of 1981, and the first track continues to sell at a surprising rate. This is one album that will not be forgotten so easily.
