Favorite album from every year of your life

I saw a list like this on another blog and I thought I'd give it a shot... that was before the headache, arguments (in my brain) and the hour it took to come up with a suitable list. Not to mention all the fact-checking that ensued, making sure these albums came out the correct year. Good thing I'm a fact-checking cuz.
The hardest part was narrowing down some years to pick my favorite album. Some years were stocked, while other years (1983, 1985, 1990, 1999, 2002, 2006) were comparatively weak. Some of my favorite bands and favorite albums aren't on this list, simply because something amazing came out and blew it out of the water that year. Try one for your own life!

1983: R.E.M. "Murmur"
1984: Prince "Purple Rain"
1985: The Smiths "Meat Is Murder"
