So this was a little easier, though I can see that it’s going to get harder for me as we close out the decade. Once again doing a poll from Slicing Up Eyeballs, and this time I’m actually getting there on time to participate.

Best Albums of 1986

  • Big Black – Atomizer
  • Coil – Horse Rotorvator
  • Dag Nasty – Can I Say
  • Dead Milkmen – Eat Your Paisley
  • Peter Gabriel – So
  • Skinny Puppy – Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse
  • R.E.M. – Life’s Rich Pageant
  • Erasure – Wonderland
  • New Model Army – Ghost of Cain
  • Queen – A Kind of Magic (write in. c’mon! Highlander!)

Honorable Mention:
Diamanda Galas – The Divine Punishment
Siouxsie and the Banshees – Tinderbox (just for “Cities in Dust”)
Dead Kennedys – Bedtime for Democracy
“Weird Al” Yankovic – Polka Party

CAVEAT – The website is focused on alternative music and indie music, so my Queen write-in is a little weird, and there’s no Eat ‘Em and Smile or the like.
