Queensryche? Marillion? House Of Lords????!!! I am quickly losing confidence in the music "Consumer", and this thread reinforces my feelings.

Queensryche while showing moments of brilliance never showed an affinity for Pink Floyd. Thier sound came closer to Rush (conceptually) at times did it not? While "Mindcrime" was good for what it was- it really didn't break new ground did it? The concept album was/is nothing new.

Marillion- With Fish they never broke free of the Genesis comparisons. "Misplaced Childhood" is a decent record, but lacks innovation to seperate them from what Genesis had been doing the previous 13 years.

I don't think there is such a thing as "Greatest album of all time", and personal taste is always subjective. Having said that, there needs to be a little more critical thinking when looking at the History of Rock. What makes a "Great" album should not be based on sales, or how much promotion the PR people have shoved down your throats. The intention of the Artist, Execution/Playing, and most important- Songwriting are what makes great music-great.
