Top Ten Best Albums of 1984

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Queen - The Works

A lovely album from artwork on the cover to the music inside the album sleeve. You've a nice simply monotone cover of the band, you know you are picking up a Queen album and before you even play it you know its gonna be a good 'un. If you don't like this album then you don't like Queen. - hillerbees

I love Queen!
And such a good album - Ajkloth

2 Metallica - Ride The Lightning
3 Madonna - Like A Virgin
4 Bryan Adams - Reckless
5 Iron Maiden - Powerslave

I like ride the lightning a lot, but powerslave is the king of masterpieces

Run.. Live to fly.. Fly to live.. Do or die.. Won't you run.. Live to fly.. Fly to live
Aces hiighh!

This album is not only the best album of 1984, but also one of the best albums ever. It is much better than "Like a Virgin" and even "The Works". It will always be remembered as one of the album that defined the 80s, with outstanding songs like When Doves Cry, Purple Rain and Let's Go Crazy. A true classic. - Zarom
