It has several humorous elements and is ultimately a celebration of life, they just try to give this world some great values back they think it lost over the years. It also has several references for all anime fans out there.

49 Breakfast - Lawrence
50 Incarnate - Killswitch Engage
51 Paradise Valley - Grouper
52 The Similitude of a Dream - Neal Morse
53 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande

This is an amazing album, should be higher up on the list

54 Your Wilderness - The Pineapple Thief
55 Death of a Bachelor - Panic! at the Disco
56 The Astonishing - Dream Theater

The first Dream Theater album to reach number one on the US Billboard Rock Chart.

I Can't believe the horrible Kanye West is above this flawless beauty. - Metalmaniakkk

Should be in the Top 10.

This seriously shouldn't be so low.
