In early 1990, the editors of Guitar World magazine sat back, grabbed some coffee and painstakingly selected what they considered the top 50 guitar albums of the just-ended Eighties.
In the photo gallery below, you can see what they came up with!
The albums are listed in order, from "killer" to "jaw-droppingly awesome." Or from 50 to 1, depending on your perspective.
Please note that there are actually 51 albums in the gallery (There was a tie somewhere along the way).
