    Off the top of my head. Some are not my favorite albums from that particular year. It sucks because the vast majority of the albums I love are in 70s and 80s and my knowledge regarding albums in the 21st century is very limited.

    I do believe the Metal Church debut came out in 1984, Gods of Wrath is probably my favorite song from them.

    You know, this might just be me, I wasn't a very big fan of Edge of Thorns. That being said, I think there's some fantastic tracks on it and Zak Stevens is a great vocalist, but something about it never clicked for me.

    Well of the albums I've heard that year, that was the best, for me, some I may have heard you haven't and vice versa. I bought EoT at a toy show for only 3 bucks on CD and I enjoyed it immensely. I prefer Handful of Rain though
