Albums By The Year: 1989

Welcome back to this special retrospective music-posting feature. The gimmick is simple — each week, you post your favorite 25 (or whatever) albums of a given year. We are now moving backwards until we run out of either albums or years.

The 1980s were the first decade i was alive for, though i can’t claim i have a lot of vivid memories of the time. A lot of this music gives me nostalgia for them anyway. Of course i like to flatter myself by assuming this is what i would’ve been into at the time. Share all your favorite albums of 1989 below.
