Best to Worst Metal Albums of 1984

Why 1984? Because that's the year I was born. I'm not saying that my birthyear makes anything else significant, but I figured I would take an interest in every album that's as old as I am. Yup, it's that lame. Here they are from best to worst in my opinion.

By the way, only the albums I've listened to go on this list, which explains why I don't have Judas Priest's Defender of the Faith or any other big album on here yet. (I'll get to them, I promise!) This is definitely a work in progress as I listen to more metal.

1. Metallica - Ride the Lightning
2. Metal Church - Metal Church
3. Autograph - Sign In Please
4. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
5. Trouble - Psalm 9
