IMO The Who - "Who's Next" = Behind Blue Eyes followed by Won't Get Fooled Again.

i also like shine a light and soul survivor off exile on main street. also like poor places and reservations off yankee hotel foxtrot. but abbey road from you never give me any money on is probably the best end to an album (or entire b side) ever.

The entire B side of Abbey Road is amazing, but that medley at the end was a fitting way for the Beatles to leave.

As soon as I saw the thread title, I was going to say "Who's Next," but you beat me to it! Good job!

Side B of Abbey Road is the shit, but:

I'm On The Floor -> Lewis II -> Into You

is about the most perfect musical sequence I've ever heard.

The third part of Extreme's III Sides To Every Story is a pretty good piece of music, but actually comes in at about 22 minutes.

It may not have the staying power with likes of Who's Next and Abbey Road but American Idiot has the potential to be named in the same breath as those classics. Of course, only time will tell. At least my kids think it an instant classic and I do too.

Aside from that, in my mind nothing will surpass the musical genius that is the A side of Zappa's Apostrophe. (OK, technically not the last 10 minutes but genius nonetheless)

Jethro Tull - Aqualung
Aqualung leading into Cross-Eyed Marry

The Who - Tommy
I'm Free - Welcome - Tommy's Holiday Camp - We're Not Gonna Take it

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Shine On You Crazy DIamond (Part I-IV)

10 minutes just isn't enough sometimes. Hell, some album sides are perfection as a whole. Pink Floyd The Wall Side B, The Beatles Sgt Peppers Side B.

Does make me wish CD manufacturers would release classic rock albums in the sideA/sideB format with a double-sided CD. It's not necessary, but some albums are build around that changeover.

The highlight of AMerican Idiot is Jesus of Suburbia which is track two. The last song on the album Whatshername is the weakest cut. But I agree the album does have the potential to be a classic.

I'll agree with the Beatles, but a different album "Sgt. Pepper's." The final three songs on that album always do it for me. Can't end better than "A Day In The Life."

I'm going to go in a different direction, and probably most will disagree, especially since none of the songs were released, but I've always felt the last 4 songs (about 20 mins.) on Metallica's Black album were the strongest.

Of Wolf and Man
The God that Failed
My Friend of Misery
the Struggle Within

Yup - the segue of "Postmortem" into "Raining Blood" is brilliant.

Really? I have more of a pet peeve about people who use unnecessary expletives on a Music forum than someone who expresses their opinion in one word.

the first side of "a change of seasons" by dream theater is probably the best piece of prog ever made.

Funny, I think the exact opposite; I love "Whatshername", and think "American Idiot" is the weakest cut (especially for an opening track).
