Abigail isn't as good as its successor, Them, but nonetheless it's the best album of 1987. Mekong Delta's debut is the first of several that would eventually make my Top Ten lists, though in retrospect it isn't their best.

Somewhat of a letdown following 1986's list, but there are some seminal albums here, with Death's debut signalling the initial rise of death metal and Appetite For Destruction, one of the most popular hard rock albums of all time, showing strong as well.
