Honorable mention to Pink Floyd's three-parted Another Brick In The Wall and half of The Who's 1970s repertoire, particularly on Quadrophenia and Tommy... Also, I'm surprised I didn't end up putting the Velvet Underground's Sister Ray in there - I thought it'd rank between the 8th and 10th positions when I started writing this and put my mind to it, then was relegated to 12th place after an hour of scanning my memories (and music collection) at my computer to come up with said list.
