Rolling Stone's Best Albums of the 80s
Follow the link to take you to Rolling Stone's List of the Best 100 Albums of the Eighties. I will say that while we agree on most selections and rankings, we are seriously left scratching our heads at some of the others that made the list of top best 20 albums. While we find Tracy Chapman and Richard & Linda Thompson in the top 10, there is no mention of the Police, The Cure, or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers until a little further on down the line... the editors of Rolling Stone have their opinions, and The Showbiz Kids have ours....at least we can all agree on The Clash, U2, the Talking Heads, Prince, and R.E.M.
