2 Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater

No competition, greatest album ever made. - Songsta41

V 1 Comment
3 Powerslave - Iron Maiden
4 Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth

This should be higher than the black album

5 Close to the Edge - Yes

Has their greatest song and two other great ones. - Songsta41

6 Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin

Ahh, I love this album! - MontyPython

7 A Farewell to Kings - Rush
8 Something Wicked This Way Comes - Iced Earth

Great songs - Melancholy (Holy Martyr), The Coming Curse, Watching Over Me, 1776. - Metal_Treasure

9 Imaginations from the Other Side - Blind Guardian

I Surrender, Difficult to Cure, Midtown Tunnel Vision, Spotlight Kid - Metal_Treasure

12 Saints & Sinners - Whitesnake
13 Unia - Sonata Arctica
14 Larks Tongues In Aspic - King Crimson

My favourite album by the band. Fantastic instrumentation interlaced with beautiful sound and quality. - IronSabbathPriest

15 Morningrise - Opeth

This was their second

16 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Morningrise isn't their fifth. In fact it's their second. This legendary album though, is one of the greatest of all time. Having Steven Wilson as producer helps, although every album previous was awesome. - IronSabbathPriest
