Top Ten Best Albums of 1986


The Top Ten

1 Queen - A Kind of Magic

Today this would be called "Highlander" - music from and inspired by the original motion picture. Thankfully they called it A Kind Of Magic. Fun album with a terrific cover. - hillerbees

So much better than Madonna, this album is great. Queen is awesome rip Freddie mercury

thank God this one's on top, I hate girl singers/bands - Queen-aholic

2 Metallica - Master of Puppets

The epicness of the title track is enough to place it in no. 1, not to mention the brutal force found in battery and damage inc.

Ok queen above Metallica aren't weird... but Madonna above? Seriously?

3 Madonna - True Blue

I remember when I was young and having my sister listening to it in Vynil. This album in personal is truly beautiful, and in another side is awesome...

4 Slayer - Reign In Blood

Where is 'Somewhere in time' by Iron Maiden? Easily the best album from 1986, followed by this, Peace sells, and then Master of Puppets.

5 Megadeth - Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?

The whole album is perfect. Get it. Just get it now. Buy it, borrow it, steal it I don't care just get it.

6 The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

The Queen is dead should be number 1 for sure. THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT

7 Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time
8 Tina Turner - Break Every Rule
9 Sandra - Mirrors
10 Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet

If this album is not at least 3rd place this is ratings are one big lie
