Top Ten Best Albums Between Dream Theater and Pink Floyd

The best albums between the gods of Prog Rock and Prog Metal!

The Top Ten

1 Metropolis Pt.2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater Metropolis Pt.2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater Product Image

I expected Dark Side of the Moon to be number one, but I'm so happy it's this instead. It's a lot better, although it gets less attention.

Best album made

Better than DSOTM

2 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd Product Image

This album makes me so happy! The perfection is in there, a pleasure for my soul and ears!

3 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Product Image
4 The Wall - Pink Floyd The Wall - Pink Floyd Product Image

Changed my entire view on how music should sound.

One of the best albums in the world and the best rock opera in my opinion. The lyrics, the music.. this album is just amazing

5 Animals - Pink Floyd Animals - Pink Floyd Product Image

By FAR the best record EVER MADE

I think this is even better than The Wall, Dark Side, and Wish You Were Here. It's very progressive with some of the best lyrics ever. My ranking of the "classic" Floyd albums is probably Animals > Wish You Were Here > Dark Side of the Moon > The Wall.

I feel like that's enough

10 Train of Thought - Dream Theater Train of Thought - Dream Theater Product Image

The Contenders

11 The Division Bell - Pink Floyd The Division Bell - Pink Floyd Product Image
12 Awake - Dream Theater Awake - Dream Theater Product Image

This is the best Dream Theater album. It's dark, heavy, has great instrumental passages, beautiful ballads, incredible solos, etc.

13 Black Clouds & Silver Linings - Dream Theater Black Clouds & Silver Linings - Dream Theater Product Image
14 Systematic Chaos - Dream Theater Systematic Chaos - Dream Theater Product Image
15 A Dramatic Turn of Events - Dream Theater A Dramatic Turn of Events - Dream Theater Product Image

Dream Theater's most coherent album, no ego tripping riffs and drum overload. Just compositions that makes sense.

16 The Piper at the Gates of Dawn - Pink Floyd The Piper at the Gates of Dawn - Pink Floyd Product Image

Full of psychedelic stuff.

17 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd Product Image

When everybody thinks of Pink Floyd, they think of The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Animals etc., but Saucerful in my openion, is tied with dark side and better than The Wall, Animals, Wish you were here, and also Meddle. Besides, some of that stuff is depressing and I don't like to feel like that. Saucerful makes me feel good.

18 Distance Over Time - Dream Theater Distance Over Time - Dream Theater Product Image

Great solid album, places around midway for me in DTs amazing discography

19 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd Product Image
20 Obscured by Clouds - Pink Floyd Obscured by Clouds - Pink Floyd Product Image
