    A hear people frequently say that there was no good music written and recorded in the 80's. I say they're full of crap.

    Just off the top of my head I can list 20 80's albums from 5 different bands that are all really good, if not great.

    Rush:
    Moving Pictures
    Grace Under Pressure
    Signals
    Power Windows
    Hold Your Fire

    Metallica:
    Kill 'Em All
    Ride the Lightning
    Master of Puppets
    And Justice for All

    Iron Maiden:
    Killers
    The Number of the Beast
    Piece of Mind
    Powerslave
    Somewhere in Time
    Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

    GnR:
    Appetite for Destruction
    GnR Lies

    Pink Floyd:
    The Wall (technically released in Nov. 1979, but since it's heyday of popularity was the 80's I say it qualifies)
    The Final Cut
    A Momentary Lapse of Reason


    Please add to my list all the good stuff from the 80's that is missing.
