Top 10 Albums of 1980

Unlike the summer special The Top 100 Albums of the Rock Era*, live albums are eligible for the Top 10 for each year as long as it is the first we have heard from the group.  Movie soundtracks are eligible as long as they consist of all new material.  Greatest Hits or other compilations are not eligible.  In other words, we are looking for creativity.  Also unlike The Top 100 Albums of the Rock Era*, which is based on the collective opinion of the music-buying public, the Top 10 lists include more of my opinion.

1.    Back in Black by AC/DC

2.    Crimes of Passion by Pat Benatar 

3.  Tusk by Fleetwood Mac

4.    Against the Wind by Bob Seger 

Pink Floyd The Wall Album
5.    The Wall by Pink Floyd  

6.    Phoenix by Dan Fogelberg

7.  Hold Out by Jackson Browne

8.  Glass Houses by Billy Joel

9.  Guilty by Barbra Streisand
