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 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

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


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

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. - Songsta41

3 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

I prefer this over The Wall for two reasons:
Wish You Were Here
Shine On You Crazy Diamond - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4 The Wall - Pink Floyd

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

Not as good as The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon or Wish You Were Here, but still outstanding! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

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. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Images and Words - Dream Theater

Pull Me Under and Metropolis Ot.1 are both Dream Theater classics! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater

Contains Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, one of the longest and most complex songs of all time! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 Meddle - Pink Floyd
9 Octavarium - Dream Theater

Contains the fan favorite song Octavarium and many other great songs too! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

10 Train of Thought - Dream Theater

The heaviest Dream Theater album ever, that's what makes this album so awesome! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Contenders

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

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

13 Black Clouds & Silver Linings - Dream Theater
14 The Piper at the Gates of Dawn - Pink Floyd V 1 Comment
15 A Dramatic Turn of Events - Dream Theater

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

16 Systematic Chaos - Dream Theater
17 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd
18 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

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.
