Slicing-up Eyeballs has been running an on-going series of polls, asking readers to vote to rank the top 100 albums each year in the 80s. They’re up to 1986 now.

I’ve gone back to their lists and compiled my own Top 10 for 1980:

  • U2 – Boy
  • The Police – Zenyatta Mondatta
  • Peter Gabriel (“Melt”)
  • Psychedelic Furs
  • Killing Joke – Killing Joke
  • Blondie – Autoamerican
  • The Human League – Travelogue
  • Dead Kennedys – Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
  • Stiff Little Fingers – Nobody’s Heroes
  • Prince – Dirty Mind

Honorable Mentions:

  • Circle Jerks – Group Sex
  • Residents – Commercial Album
  • Motorhead – Ace of Spades
  • Ramones – End of the Century

screw Joy Division. New Order has a much better singer and the best thing to come out of Closer is the Therapy? cover of “Isolation”
