Accept - Balls to the Wall
This is technically 1983 (US release was in 1984), but it also rules so IDGAF.

I'll accept it (no pun intended), and that's good to know since I've recently got into them. All I've heard so far is their '93 album Objection Overruled and their album from this year, Too Mean to Die (the standout track for me being Overnight Sensation, which pokes fun at "social media celebrities") and both are good fun. Sounds like I should continue with this album.

Balls to the Wall, Restless and Wild and Metal Heart are all worthwhile, even if the latter is poppier than I'd like.
