|Top Albums Of 1982|
|10|| ||The Birthday Party|
More great output from these guys, like the first it's noisy and bleak, i.e. awesome.
Plastic Surgery Disasters
Not near as good as Fresh Fruit..., this album is still pretty good. Not quite as memorable, but still very solid.
|8|| ||Ron Carter and Jim Hall|
Live at the Village West
More solid output from Carter, this time paired with guitarist Jim Hall.
Maybe the best pop album of all time, pretty much every song on here could have been a hit.
|6|| ||Freddie Hubbard|
Born to be Blue
Another awesome hard bop effort from Freddie Hubbard.
|5||The Alan Parson's Project|
Eye in the Sky
Dig this album, I like his other stuff too, but this one holds a special place for me. Kind of spacy, a tad lame, but overall very good.
Walk Among Us
This contains my two favourite Misfits songs (All Hell Breaks Loose, Astro Zombies) and it one of the better pieces of Hardcore punk ever made.
I think the opening line of this album is probably the best in all of music. This album was my introduction to The Cure and it's still probably my favourite. Bleak, depressing, super good.
Screaming for Vengeance
The only other Priest album that's actually good all the way through and isn't cluttered with a bunch of filler, this album is awesome. So many good songs, the album rips from beginning to end.
The Number of the Beast
This album tops the list not because this was a bit of a weaker year, but because this album is golden. Put aside the 2 most popular hits, this album is full of great songs. Invaders, Children of the Damned, 22 Accacia Avenue, and, possibly Iron Maiden's greatest song, Hallowed Be Thy Name. Not a big fan of The Prisoner or Gangland, but on the whole, the album is fantastic.
