There are no rules for doing this. Just list your albums! Myself I had to make rules as in I would have loaded my Top 15 with just Iron Maiden and Van Halen! Ha…..
For myself personally I had to make rules. I dated the album the year was from ….
So it’s only one album per artist,just studio albums,no live albums or Greatest Hits(Blah) are allowed……. You can Search these artists as I have reviewed 11 of these albums . Not saying which ones I haven’t!

My mind is basically frozen from the 1980s with 10(plus 2 Ties) of my selections from that decade!
4 albums from the 70s….(Zep ,Stones,Kiss And Aero)
1 album from the 90s(Soundgarden)
IN CONCLUSION- No Surprises Really….I’m A One Trick Musical Pony!
Some of you may go for instance is DeKEs high? He’s saying Flick Of The Switch is better than Back In Black in regards to AC/DC! Yes everyone and their dog loves Back In Black myself included but for some reason the rawness the down n dirty of Flick was right up my alley when Flick was released in 1983 when i was about to turn 16! It’s just where my noggin was pointed in that direction back in time! Next week i could flip any DACCA album into the 4 spot like Powerage,Highway To Hell,Back In Black…..yeah man just Fill Your Head With Rock!
*The music selection is Cutting Corners by Hanoi Rocks! Easy peasy selection in my book as out of this whole list of bands Hanoi had the least success but as we all know they were about to break huge but….. Cutting Corners is the last song on Two Steps From The Move and it’s such a great friggin track! It goes to show you with it being the last song just how strong the whole album was! Check It Out!
FYI- I came oh so close to having U2’s Achtung Baby on this list its bounced around my top 15 as it’s a fantastic sonically,produced well written record etc but I bumped it out for the reason that U2 2015 bores the piss Outta me…..sorry Bono! Ha like Ya Care!
