    This will take some time to think about, but some of the automatic choices for me:

    1978- AC/DC- Powerage
    1981- Rush- Moving Pictures
    1984- Bryan Adams- Reckless barely over Ratt- Out of The Cellar.

    I would have gone with No More Tears from Ozzy in 1991, but I tried not to repeat any artists on my list.

    LOL. '98 was bad but there was some better stuff than that.

    Here's a few.....Page/Plant, Godsmack's first, Satriani Crystal Planet, Vai's Flex-able Leftovers, Stones Babylon, Days Of The New, Cantrell's Boggy Depot....

    86 - Celibate Rifles - Turgid Miasma of Existence
    88 - Lime Spiders - Volatile
    91 - RHCP - Blood Sugar Sex Magick or Massive Attack - Blue Lines

    Not going to do year by year, I have no idea, but I do know that my one go to, play all the way through album is Operation: Mindcrime by Queensryche.

    Not even one of my favorite bands overall, but I love that album.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    I've just never cared for Queensryche with the exceptions of Queen Of The Reich and Last Time In Paris.
