...and there we have it for the 1980s. Funny that the 2000s outscored the 80s. I thought I was the only one who preferred that decade to the 1980s. Definitely not the only one! I didn't rank any 1980s album higher than 40th (The Joshua Tree), and I ranked 11 albums from the 2000s in my top 40, incl...

And I will nominate Rick Hall to the backstage wing. I'd recommend the documentary Muscle Shoals for his story. It's amazing how much great music came out of there, and he had a lot to do with it. His backstory is pretty incredible too.
