Top Ten Progressive Rock Albums That Should Be Made Into Movies

The Top Ten Progressive Rock Albums That Should Be Made Into Movies

1 2112 - Rush

Seriously why isn't this a movie yet?

Why isn't "The Wa- wait a minute - 445956

2 The Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

They need Jim Carrey to play Syd Barrett - CygnusX99

Great album, but I don't see how you could make a movie out of it - Songsta41

3 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis
4 Clockwork Angels - Rush

They made a book, so that's cool - HenryMan73

5 Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

The story for this Album is pretty messed up...

I think it's simple - so odd and deep album need odd and deep film.

6 Snow - Spock's Beard
7 Animals - Pink Floyd

You could count Animal Farm as it's film. - IronSabbathPriest

Yeah but what if they'd used this as the soundtrack? That would have been awesome. - LizardKing99

8 Aqualung - Jethro Tull
9 Thick As a Brick - Jethro Tull

It's not a story though... It's more of a commentary. - JoLeKosovo

10 Scheherazade and Other Stories - Renaissance

The Contenders

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

Make this happen and I will fanboy the hell out of it. - IronSabbathPriest

Have it be directed by David Fincher!

12 The Astonishing - Dream Theater
13 Operation: Mindcrime - Queensryche

Yes. - JoLeKosovo

It's between this and "Ziggy Stardust" by David Bowie. They are the albums with greatest plot. Also "The Wall" has incredible concept, but it would be hard to change it fully into film, there are too many symbols and surreality in that one.
by the way. what is doing "Dark Side of the Moon" in the top. This is awesome album, but it couldn't be converted in good film.

14 Every Good Boy Deserves Favour - The Moody Blues
15 The Final Cut - Pink Floyd
16 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

The price of fame could be a very interesting idea for a movie - CygnusX99

17 Ok Computer - Radiohead
18 Tales from Topographic Oceans - Yes
19 To Our Children's Children's Children - The Moody Blues
20 Seventh Sojourn - The Moody Blues
21 De-Loused In the Comatorium - The Mars Volta

Just imagine the psychedelic nightmare of a movie this would be

22 Temple of Shadows - Angra
23 Deadwing - Porcupine Tree

Steven Wilson originally wrote Deadwing as a screenplay, then later made in into an album with Porcupine Tree. But the movie has yet to be released. - Songsta41

24 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater
25 Crack the Skye - Mastodon
26 Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree
27 Blood Mountain - Mastodon
28 Still Life - Opeth
29 My Arms, Your Hearse - Opeth

So basically a Pink Floyd movie, since the alum relates Pink Floyd's division. - JoLeKosovo
