Greatest Rock Operas of All Time?

I recently ran across a couple IGN Articles titled, “The 14 Greatest Rock Operas/Concept Albums of All Time.” You can find it here, as well as “The 25 Best Rock Albums of the Last Decade, found here. You can read them yourself, so I’m not going to restate everything, and I can’t even necessarily argue with it for the most part. I just have a few comments.

These lists are not all inclusive, but they do mention some great albums, including David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust”, Green Day’s “American Idiot” (now also a stage musical” and by far my favorite Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” – (I’ve discussed this in previous posts. I’ve listened to this album more times that I can count, and each time I notice something new. It’s dark, it’s dramatic, and almost any song from the album would make a great stand alone single. If you haven’t given this album a listen from start to finish you’re definitely missing out.)

Anyway, give the list a look. Give the albums a listen. Let us know what you think.
