2 2112 - Rush

2112 is one of the greatest compositions of the last century. It tells a story that pink floyd could only dream to tell in a whole album.

It was hard for me to choose between Shine On You Crazy Diamond and this one, but I had to vote for 2112 - LizardKing99

How is this not number 1?

The dream is my favorite part.

3 Octavarium - Dream Theater

My favourite part is 12:15-19:50, but every other minute is still breathtaking. My favourite song (and band) at the moment definitely.

Yep... Gotta love Octavarium from DT... LOVE IT! - BimmyJim

24 minuets of pure awesomeness plus nonthing boring just rock n rock and a little metal. I like it better than all songs on this list also six degrees and presence of enemies are heavier but still ausome but It can't beat octavarium

4 Lizard - King Crimson

The jazziest song ever. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

Everybody can find a part of this song that they can relate to. It's impossible to not have some reaction to it. In addition, this classic's changing synth, guitar, and sax keep it extremely engaging.

Song length: 26:05 (all parts)

My second favorite Floyd song. Dogs is my favorite. Unfortunately, Dogs wasn't quite long enough to make the list.

Song length: 26:03 (all parts)

7 Supper's Ready - Genesis

Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly
The seventh walks in front with a cross held high in hand
And it's hey babe your supper's waiting for you
Hey my baby, don't you know our love is true?

It's a Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Tune!

No comparison for this masterpiece

Superb song

34 Autobahn - Kraftwerk

When I was 18 a friend called this guy I was visiting and said 'Don't move. I have something I want you to hear.' He showed up about five minutes later and put on side one of Autobahn. We sat down and listened, STUNNED at this incredible album. You have to realize, there had been no sound like this up to that point in our lives. I was so taken by it that I was lead down the path of synthesizers and it completely changed by preference of music from that point on. Can't give this album enough credit.
