Several great albums but no clear favorite. The Spectre Within is only the third best Fates Warning album, but the only one to win Best Album. For several bands on this list (Exodus, Celtic Frost, Slayer, Manilla Road), the best was yet to come.

Thrash starts taking hold now, with three-fourths of the Big Four (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax) beginning to hit their stride.
