Some tricky ones. Also there are four sheets to try so don't stop at one! Some of the album names took a little work but for the most part this looks like the easiest set of the four. Here is the key for the first set for those interested, read left to right, top to bottom.
Spoiler:

Thompson Twins - Into the Gap
ZZ Top - Eliminator
Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell
Whitney Houston - Whitney Houston
Blink182 - Enema of the State
Manic Street Preachers - This is my Truth Tell me Yours
The Stereophonics - Performance and Cocktails
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Deacon Blue - Raintown
Kylie Minogue - Fever
Nirvana - Nevermind
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
U2 - The Unforgettable Fire
Madonna - True Blue
Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast
Duran Duran - Rio
Catatonia - International Velvet
Bruce Springsteen - Born in the USA
Eminem - The Slim Shady LP

I ran through it quickly . . . could maybe do better with a little more effort, but I got: 61/80 artists correct 38/80 album titles correct.

There's some issues with idiosyncratic spellings - since if you don't spell the titles exactly, you get the question "wrong."

But I scored - 64 artists and 47 titles.

What do I win?

After getting frustrated because I apparently couldn't spell guns and roses the way the guy wanted, I said f it and cracked it and looked at all the answers >< I haven't heard of a good handful of them. Seemed to be a lot of European bands/performers in there.

Dr_Evil: so you're suggesting that Spinal Tap's seminal, underrated album "Smell The Glove" is the key for the first set?
