Switched #s 3 and 4 about ten times before going with this. #1-5 could all be #1 on different days, but this is the "gun to my head" version.

Well, not "best" to "worse", but in order of how much I like them:

.

1) Sign 'O' The Times

2) Purple Rain

3) Around The World In A Day

4) 1999

5) Lovesexy

6) Batman

7) Dirty Mind

8) The Black Album

9) Parade

10) Controversy

.

Although it's definitely a five-star masterpiece, "Purple Rain" is at #2 for nostalgic reasons. Otherwise it would probably be #4, and #2 and #3 would move up a position.

EDITED TO INCLUDE: I always forget about "The Black Album". I didn't get it until the 1994 reissue, so it's never present in my brain as an 80s-era album.
