86 was a decent year musically, but 83, 87, and 88 were the best years of the 80s.
I think "Under Lock And Key" was released by Dokken in late 1985 or early '86. Good stuff. Also "Keeper of the Seven Keys I" by Helloween, IIRC.
At the time it was Slayer's "Reign In Blood", Metallica's "Master of Puppets", Anthrax's "Among the Living", Iron Maiden's "Live After Death", and Judas Priest's "Turbo" for me.
The droogies and I all cursed Bon Jovi as a "poser", even though I had the same hair-do at the time. ;-D
My Keeper I CD says 1987, 86 was their first album, I think (Walls Of Jericho).
