The Contenders: Page 3

41 Shock Treatment

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

42 The Wake of Magellan - Savatage

Great album, great story, great lyrics. Very elaborate melodies, and, once more, a brilliant use of counterpoint in the vocals. It's very ambitious, because there are a few different stories, but, somehow, in the end, they seem to complete each other, and you get the sensation they really should be told together. - amandamop

43 Radio KAOS

Totally underrated album by a roger Waters

44 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.

46 Help! - The Beatles

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

47 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.

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

It is the damn best!

49 Berlin - Lou Reed

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