Seeing as we ventured into the 70's with a mighty fine 1979 poll, here's one for 1978. This is probably strictly for the oldies amongst us, but it is certainly no less important than the other polls featured here, with some absolutely fabulous albums that set the trend what was to come in the 80's and onwards. If you've never heard any/many of these albums, then you have some homework to do
