1989 - best albums

Recommended Posts

A few expressed interest in the best of 2015 thread to look at rating the excellent year of 1989.

 

Here is a short of (just) 96 albums which I felt were worthy of rating.

 

I havent done it yet as I balked at the challenge as there were so many great albums which I could see scoring over 85% that it was ridiculous and virtually impossible.

 

Anyway here it is - the asterix denotes an album which could (and I mean could) make my top 20 - I love each and every album with an asterix - each one is a classic imo............although looking at the ones without an asterix, you wonder and realise the enormity of the task!

 

Cheers

Love and war would be up there for me. Can't wait to dissect this and thanks for the brutal metal reference nighttrain. 89 at a glance seems better than 88 and 87. Let's see 86, 85 etc. Some of my favourites are from the mid-early 80s before the labels started taking over and making everything samey.

Oh, there were plenty. Fear not that. The one thing I'm finding is that if you delve deep enough, there were just as many poor albums from back then as there are these days. A few more better ones, I doubt not... but the rubbish was always present. All of those last 4 albums are terrible. Jeez Diamond Rexx sucked.

The Bad English disc is very frustrating too. Without 'Ready When You Are,' 'Lay Down' and 'Rocking Horse' it's an easy 90%+ disc. With those 3 scraps of shit the score of this album is dragged to a place where one part of me feels like it doesn't belong, and the other part of me thinks... well, dudes, it's your fault. Why'd you put these 3 pieces of shit on such a masterpiece?

1989 is really when the bulk of my collection begins. Narrowing this down to ten was difficult. Most of the albums I own from this year are, I feel, essential. Extreme would have to take top spot for me. But I love Lion, too. And Giant. And Treat. And Babylon A.D.. And Savatage. And Tesla. And Danger Danger. And Gorky Park. And Bad English.

 

Babylon A.D. - Babylon A.D.
Bad English - Bad English
Danger Danger - Danger Danger
Extreme - Extreme
Gorky Park - Gorky Park
Savatage - Gutter Ballet
Giant - Last of the Runaways
Treat - Organized Crime
Tesla - The Great Radio Controversy
Lion - Trouble In Angel City

Garry Mielle now runs a hairdressing salon not far from where I live ... he STILL looks like he's in 1989 :)

And is he aware of the fact that his band sucked dog balls? ;)

 

This'll be a good year to review. I assume that Bonfire and Treat will battle it out for my top spot, and I look forward to seeing the victor. I'm guessing it might just be Bonfire.

I like Organised Crime, but in 1989 it will struggle to make my top 10 I reckon.

 

Point Blank is a classic however - easily Bonfire's finest moment and probably the longest most consistent album ever. I would say it would be challenging for top spot.
