Van Halen II was in 1979.

I also knew Maiden was gonna be #1. What I didn't know was that it was gonna be Killers.

Furthermore, Heaven & Hell can still suck my big black ass.

Dio - Holy Diver (1983)
Dio - The last in line (1984)
Dio - Dream Evil (1987)
Dokken - Tooth and Nail (1984)
Dream Theater - When Dream and Day Unite (1989)
Fates Warning - Perfect Symmetry (1989)
Helloween - Keeper of the 7 Keys Part I (1987)
Helloween - Keeper of the 7 Keys Part II (1988)
Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind (1983)
Iron Maiden - Powerslave (1984)
Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time (1986)
Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988)
Journey - Frontiers (1983)
King's X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska (1988)
Metal Church - Blessing in Disguise (1988)
Moore, Gary - Wild Frontier (1987)
Overkill - The Years of Decay (1989)
Riot - Fire Down Under (1981)
Riot - Thundersteel (1988)
Savatage - Hall of the Mountain King (1987)
Savatage - Gutter Ballet (1989)
Saxon - Strong Arm of the law (1980)
Saxon - Denim and leather (1982)
Tesla - Mechanical Resonance (1986)
Tesla - The Great Radio Controversy (1989)
Thin lizzy - Thunder and lightning (1983)

... more or less.

Damn, I'll do this later when I have some spare time. Literally hundreds of albums deserve to be top 20.

Hundreds? Not likely. Considering I'm going to guess you've only really heard about 1,000 albums total, I highly doubt several hundred of them deserve to be top 20 in the 80s alone.

Alright, alright, I exaggerated. But I bet I could make a top 100 from the 80s and think every record on it was at least good.
