PostSubject: Favorite album from each year of your life (*so far*)   Wed Jan 09, 2019 1:36 pm

Saw this on another forum I frequent and thought it was a fun idea for a thread. Very simply, list your favorite album release for each year that you've been alive.

If you don't own or aren't familiar with any albums released in a particular year, feel free to skip it and move on to the next year.

1975: Aerosmith, Toys In The Attic
1976: Ramones, self titled
1977: AC/DC, Let There Be Rock
1978: Judas Priest, Stained Class
1979: Motorhead, Overkill
1980: Def Leppard, On Through The Night

1982: Iron Maiden, The Number of the Beast
1983: Metallica, Kill'Em All
1984: W.A.S.P., self titled

Same here. It's a cool idea, just gonna take me some time to put it all together.

Yeah, it's kind of a dark horse pick. Laughing very hard

Seriously, there were at least fifty albums released in 1988 that I could've chosen, but I still listen to that one on an almost-weekly basis even after all these years, so that's why I went with it.

1980 Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
A great year for metal. Too bad I can't remember it! The title track here is still my favourite Sabbath tune.

1981 Blue Oyster Cult - Fire of Unknown Origin
A tight race here - I could have gone with Mob Rules as well, but I feel this one wins. At least today. Veteran of the Psychic Wars vs Sign of the Southern Cross.

1982 Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
Maiden vs Priest round one and Maiden wins out not in small part because of Hallowed Be Thy Name.

1983 Dio - Holy Diver
Quite easy. This could be my favourite heavy metal album of all time. Metallica's best album was released in 1983, too, but this list is not for second bests.

1984 Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith
Maiden vs Priest round two and this is the best Judas Priest album of them all. Don't tempt the blade!

1985 Anthrax - Spreading the Disease
Just one of those albums where everything falls into place. Gung-Ho, Medusa and a bunch of the other songs are just what I imagine when I think of perfection. Sorry Dokken. You unchained the night in 1985, but I guess in the (livin') end it all just 'slipped away'.

1986 Slayer - Reign in Blood
It's not every day you need to contemplate between Cinderella vs Slayer, but that's exactly what was going through my mind here! Slayer wins on nostalgia because this album was the soundtrack to my late teens.

1987 Savatage - Hall of the Mountain King
I start school, and unbeknownst to me, while I'm bringing an apple to the teacher, Savatage releases this record that I will later call perfection in power metal. 'Devastation' is still the song that I think of when I'm trying to place my taste in music into the music map with one single song. It's not the greatest song ever, but it best describes what I like. And the guitar tone is to die for.

1988 Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
I feel guilty for not including any Helloween on my list, but it's not my fault they release their two best albums opposite to two magnus opuses like 1987's Mountain King and now Queensryche's Mindcrime. This album is powerful, captivating and... musical. So many great songs to sing along to.

1989 Savatage - Gutter Ballet
This was the hardest, BY FAR, the hardest choice. But that title track draws me in. And Hounds. And Of Rage and War. What a wonderful album. I must play it now and continue with this list later.
