83 The 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.

84 New 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

85 She'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

86 Bark At The Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
87 Keeper 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

88 Sign 'o' the Times - Prince
89 Faith - George Michael

THE BEST ALBUM EVER! He was MASSIVE during this album. Around this time he was even selling more records than Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston! Should be higher, WAY higher on this list!

I love how the album that sold out "Bad" isn't in the top twenties. This album is a paramount consistuient of the 1980's. - FlakyCuddles43

Way too low

90 Daydream Nation - Sonic Youth
91 Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan
92 Select - Kim Wilde
93 Duran Duran - Duran Duran
94 Seven and the Ragged Tiger - Duran Duran
95 The Years of Decay - Overkill
96 Metal Heart - Accept
97 Saints & Sinners - Whitesnake
98 Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire - Bonnie Tyler
99 Mother's Milk - Red Hot Chili Peppers

They are the best. Unfortunately for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they changed record labels. Their best one - Blood Sugar Sex Magik (Warner Bros. Records). - kristyrosepetal4

100 The Final Countdown - Europe
