A magic medieval trip

67 Radiohead - Kid A
68 Avantasia - The Metal Opera
69 Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
70 El Dorado - Electric Light Orchestra
71 Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown

Any album with 21 Guns, Know Your Enemy, and 21st Century Breakdown deserves to be recognized

72 Testimony - Neal Morse

It's just ' incredible, from the gargantuan sound to the amazing instrumentation... Definitely some of the best music in modern prog. Possibly the greatest Christian album of all time.

73 The House of Gold & Bones, Part 1 - Stone Sour

Newer album, but has a great ongoing story, topped off with some advanced guitaring for Stonesour's usual. Some of the best hits of last year were off these albums such as "Absolute Zero", "Do Me A Favor", and "Tired". and other great songs without mainstream attention like "Gone Sovereign" and "The Uncanny Valley" are great ones. I'm sure this album will get more recognition during time, altogether these 2 concept albums will be certified platinum sooner or later.

74 The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1 - Five Finger Death Punch

These 2 concept albums have their ups and downs, but ultimately I believe part 1 is the best. "Lift Me Up" ft Rob Halford is an amazing song, along with "Watch You Bleed" and the cover of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" ft Tech N9ne. Don't really like the storyline, and I think there's too many covers in these albums along with featured artists, which is my only complaint. Part 2 had "Battle Born" which is a good one and a cover of "House Of The Rising Sun". I'd have to say Lift Me Up was my favorite song of 2013. The solo in Mama Said Knock You Out is very creative then their usual. If you're a heavy metal fan, or FFDP fan and haven't heard any of these songs, I highly recommend to take a listen!

75 Rise - Skillet

Best Christian concept album.

76 Marilyn Manson - Mechanical Animals
77 Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
78 Mastodon - Crack the Skye
79 Mastodon - Blood Mountain
80 Blood On Ice - Bathory
