1983 - Choose your album


Recommended Posts

Dio

DL, Ozzy, Maiden & Night Ranger would make out the top 5 from that list 

Marillion - Script For a Jesters Tear & Journey - Frontiers would be my top 2 from that year though. Dio no3.

Def Leppard pretty comfortably for me. 

Motley Crue, KISS and Night Ranger rounding out the top four.

Yeah, Pyromania is the definitive Def Lep album for me, although the underrated gem of all of those shown is Zebra IMO. That one is way up there for me.

I also love that Zebra album. They were an underrated band that's for sure.

Metallica - Kill 'em All closely followed by Accept - Balls to the Wall

Kill 'em All is the only Metallica album I like and although Accept are by  far my preferred band of the two  I thought BttW was a bit of a backwards step at the time.

 

I remember when I used to go to my regular rock club in the centre of Manchester there was only me and this other guy who used to get up to Metallica. I think his name was Nigel and he was a school teacher, he was a really nice guy he wore glasses and used tape to hold them on while headbanging.  I even bought the t-shirt from the flyer that came inside the album. :D

Slippery When Wet was my first taste, but it wasn't until I heard Quiet Riot's Metal Health many years later that I got really hooked into the genre and for that it will always hold a special place in my heart!

First metal album to go #1 in the US was metal health.

    • I must say this is easily one, if not my favorite thread. Got to love these 1 offs and oddities. Wish I cold have them all. Once I get my collection out of jail I may copy you and do a PNW version as sharing is caring. ¬† Thanks for the efforts in this thread Russ much appreciated.
    • I adore those first 2 Kix records honestly, their discography is almost in order of favorites, literally with Midnight at 3 and Blow at 4, Hotwire 5 (but could bundle with Show business, but those first 4, minus Don't Close Your Eyes (that one never did much for me, OK song, but quite skippable) are quintessential.¬†
    • As much as I love Kix, their first 2 albums are not great. And "In God We Trust" was TRASH.
    • Kix (duh). S/T, Cool Kids, Midnight Dynamite, Blow My Fuse, Hotwire. They really can do no wrong. Kings X (double duh). Into the Silent Planet, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Faith, Hope, Love, Self Titled, DogMan, Ear Candy, etc... Enuff Z Nuff has at least 10 albums of worthy material, starting with the S/T, then Animals w/Human Intelligent, easily to and through 10, but easily could include Welcome To Blue Island and album 12 ? (question mark). Stryper. Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command, To Hell W/the Devil, In God We Trust, and the EPIC Against The Law. Butch Walker/Floyds Funk Revival/Marvelous 3. Sure its a blend of names but mostly the same guys and from Creamy, to the 3 Marvie records to Butch's Left of Self Centered is a good run, and you could include the 2 Southgang records as that's still Butch, Jay and Slug and depending on how much appreciation you have for Butch you can go to present as he is brilliant. ¬† I also think Metal Church, The Dwarves, Warrior Soul and Nelson fit the bill as well. ¬† I am sure there are many more.
    • Oh wow, that song is awful.¬†¬†
    • The Carpenters never bugged me but... A few years ago, my wife and I went to see Bill Medley in concert.¬† Well, actually, we went to see Christopher Cross but Medley was the opening act.¬† Anyway I digress... Medley performed "I've Had the Time of My Life" as you might expect.¬† And it was wonderful.¬† Except...the female duet parts were sung by his daughter.¬† THAT was a bit creepy.¬†¬† FWIW, Medley was incredible.¬† Puts on a wonderful show and sounds amazing.¬† Then again, so was Christopher Cross.¬† All in all, a tremendous concert.
    • That version........well, let's just say it's not good.
