Recommended Posts

Yeah, Night Ranger for me too, with the opener, 'Don't Tell Me You Love Me' being my favourite track.

This one's a no brainer for me.

"Iron Maiden" 100%.

The first album I bought with my own money. It was pocket money, but still my own money nonetheless. 

I was 9 at the time, pushing 10 and even though I purchased it with my own money, I still needed the all important approval of my Mum. 

It was given, the purchase was made and the rest is History. 

I can't go past the title track as my favourite.

Have to go Maiden, prob best metal album of all time.

But also have to mention the sublime Asia Debut , which would be no 1 in virtually any other year and is almost a benchmark for AOR for me 

Both prob in my top 10 albums of all time 

(Toto is missing but that would prob be no 3 in 1982 with Night Ranger and Survivor rounding out an incredible top 5)

Gonna have to go with Night Ranger, and might even pick their eponymous track as my favourite from the album.

Yes have to go with Iron Maiden. Same as you, some nice memories. I think I was around 8 or 9 when this and 'Appetite for destruction' were the first cassettes I ever purchased with the help of my parents(money haha). Loved the artworks just as much as the songs. Played them non stop in our little Sony cassette player for a year or two before I added 'Blizzard of ozz', 'Keeper of the seven keys:part ll', 'Fireworks',and probably 'Thundersteel' to my collection.

Aldo  Nova  would be my most played of all of these, but as with a lot of the other years, many of these would be very very  close.. Asia, Y&T, Scorpions, Maiden and Night Ranger all brilliant discs

My favorite albums from several bands (Kiss, Maiden, Priest, Y&T, Scorpions, Accept, Night Ranger, Twisted Sister and Asia) all came out in '82.  Of that lot I'd select Number of the Beast as my top choice

TS Under the Blade very closely followed by Maiden

As soon as I saw the list I expected a bunch for..>
Kiss - never got the attraction to this album, one of their worst for me
Aldo Nova - never was able to get into this but people froth it.
Van Halen - likewise was never able to get most of the earlier stuff. For me DLR on 1984 was great, before that pretty average music overall.

(damn should have posted these in the unpopular opinions thread...)

    • 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.
