NME: Best 80s Album

Postby JR » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:06 pm

NME currently has a list of 65 albums for site visitors to vote on. The following link probably won't be up for too long:

I went through and copied-and-pasted the 64 albums, putting them in chronological order; once you put in 65 at the end of the URL, the albums simply repeat themselves in the order in which they're presented.

Perhaps a this could be one of those "Nominations For The Best 80s Album" lists.
