The best of the 1980s, or not really
So, there's this website, and they have a list of the top 100 albums of each year in the 1980s.
I'm not going to say "alternative" because the word has become so perverted since then. But they do have Closer as the top album of 1980, and Faith as #1 for 1981.
However, they miss Scientists' This Heart Doesn't Run on Blood, This Heart Doesn't Run on Love; they miss Laughing Hyenas Come Down to the Merry-Go-Round; they even miss Swans' Raping a Slave EP.
So I guess it's more of a "top 100 pop albums that bordered on alternative-ish".
Go check through their list and you'll probably remember a few bands you've forgotten.
