The Contenders: Page 3

41 War of the Worlds - Jeff Wayne

This is an all time classic. great story, amazing vocals and haunting narration. it gets played every Halloween without fail since its release in 1978.

42 Sunshine on Leith

Based around the back catalogue of The Proclaimers

43 Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones - Black Veil Brides

It is the damn best!

44 Shock Treatment

"Not a prequel, not a sequel... an equal" to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. More incredible Richard O'Brien rock and roll!

45 Radio KAOS

Totally underrated album by a roger Waters

46 The Protomen - (Act I, II, & III)

A dystopian rock opera loosely based on the mythology of the Mega Man IP.

Incorporating amazing vocals and tenured musical scores accompanied by western, blade-runner-esq, and 8-bit motifs; this children's narrative is transformed into touching tales of good vs. Evil and the quest to find oneself.

ActI is still in production at time of writing, and reading the albums script along with each song is a must to fully appreciate this work.

47 The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking - Roger Water
48 Help! - The Beatles

Story a bit contrived, but Leo McKern's acting was Oscar-worthy, and of course the music was... THE Beatles.

49 Berlin - Lou Reed

A sad love story about a man who struggles with his partner's instability.
