Top Ten Best Albums of 1983

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Metallica - Kill 'Em All
2 Def Leppard - Pyromania

If you could look up the word album in a picture dictionary, there should be a picture of this album beside the definition. It is something you can sit down and listen to start to finish in about 45 mins and gives you the same satisfied feeling as eating a good meal. Well produced rock. Find a quiet corner, stick on a good set of headphones, close your eyes and I defy you not to be playing air guitar and drums throughout... a real guilty pleasure of an album. - hillerbees
