Pitchfork: Best Albums of the 80s

What do we reckon will be no. 1 this time? It Takes a Nation of Millions seems a good bet maybe. Or Purple Rain.

Not Queen is Dead, That’s for sure!

I discovered loads of stuff thanks to their original top 100 80s albums list.

why are they doing this again?

Should have done the 2000s redux IMO. Think it would’ve been interesting to see how their perspective on the decade (the one where they really influenced the scene) has changed – presumably way heavier on pop, rnb, hip hop and less indie focussed

Because it was 2002 when they last did it and Daydream Nation was #1 and Sonic Youth are shite

Hopefully The Stone Roses :+1:

Not as shite as Queen though

It’s hard to choose a singular Prince album but Sign of the Times at #1 would not be a surprise

I’ve had a grudge against them ever since they were my ‘3 in 10’ when I was on Popmaster 4 years ago. Wankers.
