    Hey all, I thought this might be a cool thread. If it has been done before, sorry, if not awesome. Please no flaming though. Ok here goes.

    1. Dream Theater- Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From a Memory

    Dream Theater has established themselves as the premier progressive rock band of recent times. They brought prog into the ninties with reckless abandon. This album, a concept album to me is the best record they have made to date. Although it has it's franticly progressive moments like most DT albums do, this album seems alot more in depth. Song structuring is at it's best imo for the band here. Awesome record, great lyrics.

    2. Pink Floyd- The Wall

    I don't think I need to write an explanation for this album. An absolute work of art imo.

    3. Van Halen- Balance

    This is my favorite VH record. To me, it is very dark and real. It's almost like you know what the guys were feeling here when they wrote it. the guitar tone in my opinon the best tone on any vh record

    4. Van Halen- Van Halen

    Groundbreaking, need I say more??

    5. Metallica- And Justice For All

    I think Metallica was at it's highest point musically here. Songs were longer and more structured almost progressive like.

    6. Peter Gabriel- So
    Peter is just an amazing artist. His music is so deep and real to me. I think his voice is incredible. It's so unique, as is his music

    7. Dream Theater- Awake

    Very dark album. Great lyrics. Awesome prog epic(A Mind Beside Itself) Great musicianship

    8. Dream Theater- Images and Words

    The album that broke them through. Contains the song that was pretty much a blueprint of prog to come(Metropolis Pt 1:The Miracle and The Sleeper)this album hit people in the progressive arena by storm with it's complexity, but also smoothness.

    9. Enigma- The Screen Behind The Mirror

    Enigma are just amazing to me. Their music has so much feel to me and this is my favorite of their albums

    10. Van Halen- Van Halen III

    Like it or not, this album was truely unique. Although some call it an Ed solo album I disagree. Musically it is very experimental and shows the band's musical knowledge is alot more vast than we thought it was.

    Well those are my top 10. Hope this thread does good.
    ...and on the seventh day, god created Eddie! <br /><br /><a href="http://www.rosetears.com" target="_blank">http://www.rosetears.com</a>

    4. The Rolling Stones-Let It Bleed
