The Best Albums of 1987: Honorable Mentions

We hope that you enjoyed our huge feature on The Best Albums of 1987. If you happened to miss it, please click here.

There were so many great releases that didn't get included in the Best Albums of 1987 feature - since we limited ourselves to the Top 15. In this post you will find 15 more albums that Sarah and I selected that didn't make an appearance on any of our lists. A track from each album is added to the playlist at the bottom - and we threw in 60 extra songs that we thoroughly enjoy. We hope you do too! So without further delay, here are our Honorable Mentions for 1987.
