41 Smashing Pumpkins - MACHINA/The Machines of God Smashing Pumpkins - MACHINA/The Machines of God

With a twisting love hate relationship with the press, it made sense that Billy Corgan would make a record dealing with how the media wars informed his songwriting. The Pumpkins include spirituality in their quest for existential answers. - viniot

42 Time - Electric Light Orchestra Time - Electric Light Orchestra

So many imitators of this record's sound. A great story too!

44 Marilyn Manson - Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) Marilyn Manson - Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death)

Holy Wood really brings out how much of an intelligent and genius lyricist Marilyn Manson - Lem

45 William Shatner - Seeking Major Tom William Shatner - Seeking Major Tom

Through a compilation of space-themed cover-versions (for example 'Space Oddity', 'Silver Machine', 'Space Cowboy', 'Learning to fly', 'Iron Man', 'Walking on the Moon', 'Rocket Man' and many others) 'Captain Kirk' creates some kind of concept. Most amazing is the list of guest musicians incl. Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Peter Frampton, Alan Parsons, Steve Howe, Dave Davies, Michael Schenker, Brad Paisley, Johnny Winter, Zakk Wylde, Chris Adler, Ian Paice, Bootsy Collins and many more. Sometimes great, sometimes hilarious and maybe sometimes even a bit embarrassing.

This album is terrible, it is a waste of time listening to William Shatner trying to sing. He should just stick to acting

46 Ayreon - 01011001 Ayreon - 01011001
47 Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
48 Frances the Mute - The Mars Volta Frances the Mute - The Mars Volta

The band has been very adamant that this is not a concept album.

Absolute favorite album by them.
