1980?

Permanent Waves
Love Stinks
British Steel
Iron Maiden
Heaven and Hell
Ready an' Willing
The Tale of the Tape (I personally love this album)
Cultosaurus Erectus
Emotional Rescue
Back in Black
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)
Blizzard of Ozz
Zenyatta Mondatta
Remain in Light
Hi Infidelity
Boy

And I didn't include any live albums, which would have added The Kinks One for the Road.

I've listened to every single one of these albums in the last year.

I’d add Sandinista by Clash and Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables by Dead Kennedys.  As I said before, my birth year was awesome.
