Top Ten Progressive Rock Albums That Should Be Made Into Movies


The Top Ten

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

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
5 Snow - Spock's Beard
6 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

7 Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

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

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

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

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 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
16 Tales from Topographic Oceans - Yes
17 To Our Children's Children's Children - The Moody Blues
18 Seventh Sojourn - The Moody Blues
19 De-Loused In the Comatorium - The Mars Volta

Just imagine the psychedelic nightmare of a movie this would be
