I love this album but.... LAMBS LIE DOWN ON BROADWAY belongs on this list.

How is THE WALL not on this list? I mean, I love THE WALL, but still...

I don't think "the lamb" is pretentious. Ambitious, arty, progressive, yes. Too esoteric for mw to see it as pretentious.

There is a fine line between "ambitious/artsy/progressive and pretentious". I would say such a fine line that it is probably better that the artist ignore it.
