Best Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Albums of 1986

I have always considered 1986 to be one of the best years in hard rock and heavy metal history given the greatness of the albums that were released that year. Unfortunately, I was too young to really know of them, let alone understand or appreciate them. But when I was introduced to this kind of music, a few years later, and started discovering the magic these albums radiate, it was music wonderland for me. these are my 20 most essential hard n’ heavy studio albums of 1986 in descending order. Agree or disagree, all good with me, as long as you let me know your top 20 albums. Horns up! (Click here if you cannot see the following slideshow.)
