    Default Whats your favourite year in Rock?

    In your humble opinion, what was the greatest/best/your favourite year for music. Back your year up by listing 5 great albums released in that particular year.

    Here's mine:

    Year : 1991

    1. Slave To The Grind - Skid Row
    Probably my favourite album of all time.

    2. For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge - Van Halen As far as I'm concerned this was the pinnacle album of the Van Hagar years. A classic album that does not falter, the band were, artistically, never in better form.

    3. No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy's best album by a long shot. Ozzy bought in some outside writers which elevates the album and Zakk Wylde was just beginning to show why he would become one of the most respected metal guitarists in the world. Not one weak track on this album.

    4. Ten - Pearl Jam I didn't really get into this album until a few years after its release, but now I consider it a classic and probably Pearl Jams best.

    5. A Little Aint Enough - David Lee Roth Diamond Daves finest. A heavier approach than his previous albums and its all the better for it.

    Other Good Albums form 1991
    Lean Into It - Mr Big A great pop/metal album.
    Dancin On Coals - Bang Tango Underated album, has a real cool funk/rock vibe to it.
    Use Your Illusions I & II - Guns 'N Roses
    Hollywood Vampires - LA Guns
    Not a great album but had 2 phenomanal songs: Crystal Eyes and Over The Top (which later appeared on the Point Blank soundtrack)
    Ceremony - The Cult Not my favourite Cult album, but solid nontheless
    "In our house, a song was considered shit if it didn't have a big guitar solo on it"- Slash

    1987

    1. Back for the Attack/Dokken (A heavy hitter in the 80's. Still Great)
    2. Appetite for Destruction/GnR (Jungle was a "Smash or Trash" video on MTV. I saw it and immediately drove my 16 year old ass to buy the cassette)
    3. Girls Girls Girls/CRUE (Title track and "Wildside" played endlessly on radio)
    4. I Never Said Goodbye (I love Eddie's bass on that album)
    5. Night Songs/Cinderella

    Also: Whitesnake/Whitesnake, Ratt/Dancing Undercover, White Lion/Pride

    These albums spawned massive tours. I saw most of those bands parade through Detroit in '87 and '88. Man, I'm getting old!

    The late 80's were the absolute best guitar rock ever.

    Tough question - lots of good years from the early '70s up to the end of the '80s. Here are two:

    1978:

    Aerosmith Live * Bootleg
    Boston Don't Look Back
    The Cars
    Cheap Trick Heaven Tonight
    FM * The Original Movie Soundtrack
    Foreigner Double Vision
    The Jam All Mod Cons
    The J. Geils Band Sanctuary.
    Kiss Double Platinum
    Paul McCartney (with Wings) Greatest
    The Rolling Stones Some Girls
    Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Stranger In Town
    The Steve Miller Band Greatest Hits 1974-1978
    Van Halen
    Joe Walsh "But Seriously, Folks..."

    or

    1983:

    Bryan Adams Cuts Like A Knife
    Def Leppard Pyromania
    Genesis
    Billy Idol Rebel Yell
    Huey Lewis And The News Sports
    Loverboy Keep It Up
    Robert Plant The Principle Of Moments
    The Police Synchronicity
    Talking Heads Speaking In Tongues
    U2 War
    Yes 90125
    ZZ Top Eliminator

    honourable mention goes to 1976 and 1984!

    Well, there's just so much to pick from when you're talking 1980's.

    But true to form, I must go with 1981, since that's the year that gave us the greatest hard rock album ever created by man or beast, a golden standard eclipsing even such masterpieces as Zeppelin 4, The White Album, Back in Black, Paranoid, Are You Experienced, and even its big brothers VH 1 and 1984:

    Fair Warning

    Also worthy of note released in '81: my favorite Police album, Ghost in the Machine, Oingo Boingo's Only a Lad (probably also their best album), and U2's October.

    X, the Cars, the Pretenders, and the B-52's also came out with new stuff that year.

    I'd even say ALL of the 80's ruled. SO many great albums came out in that decade. Far too many to list.

    I was torn between 1987 and 1991. Ended up going 1991 purely on the basis of Slave To The Grind and FUCK being released, but 1987 was a great year.

    Default Yeah, I think my vote is for 1987!

    And I know a lot of people don't dig the newer Aerosmith, but their "comeback" album came out in 1987 too.



    Sold half a Diamond (5 mill)

    It was awesome tour too, I saw them 3 times, once with Dokken and twice with GUNS n ROSES.

    1984. I was 14 years old. Van Halen was on top of the world and Motley Crue introduced me to a whole new world. I was never the same........

    As much I do do enjoy U2, that album didn't stand out for me. The Joshua Tree was their last truly great album.

    I'm not the biggest U2 fan, but Achtung Baby is by far my favorite. I dont' care much for Joshua Tree, maybe cuz those songs are so overplayed on the radio, I dunno. I never understood the hype on that album.

    For ther most part, the only song on Achtung Baby that I sometimes skip is Mysterious Ways.
