The Top Ten

1 Metallica - ...And Justice for All

"... And Justice for All" is one of major metal albums of all time :) "One" is a canon.

This has to be one of the best albums of all time. this deserves top ten.

2 Sandra - Into a Secret Land

My favorite Sandra album in the 80's. I adore songs "Around My Heart" and "Heaven Can Wait" - Irina2932

Agreed! Sandra was great in the 80's

3 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden

A real masterpiece by a legendary band people should vote for it instead all the pop female singers.

One the best album by iron maiden need to be at least 5th place on this list.

4 Megadeth - So Far, So Good... So What!

A great album with weird audio quality.

This album is underrated give it a chance in my darkest hour is very amazing
