Good one. Hadn't thought of this album for awhile, it's kinda dark, based on Edgar Allan Poe poems and short stories. It's ok - Ned964

7 Welcome to My Nightmare - Alice Cooper

8 2112 - Rush
9 Animals - Pink Floyd

It takes some getting used to. Largely written off as a stoner's album on its release, it deserves better props than that. Some great guitar work. It has 3 very long tracks, and 2 very short ones. Nice album to just put on and kinda ignore it. - Ned964

10 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

The Contenders

11 Electra Heart - Marina and the Diamonds
12 S.F. Sorrow - The Pretty Things
