I wasn't looking to form a categorical imperative. You asked a question, I answered. IMO, anyone that has cameramen film his wife giving birth, and puts it in a movie for release, is being pretentious. You can agree or disagree; I was just giving you an answer.

Styx - good call. They had some good songs but..."Kilroy was Here" was a bit of a stretch. Tempted to lump in Kansas with Styx even though they're more prog-(non)rock.

For that matter, how about anyone who does up a "Rock Opera"?

Queenryche - as a concept album Operation: Mindcrime didn't suck. However, the subsequent box-set, live album, and sequel to O:M is a bit much. What, 15 years isn't enough time to write something new and original?!?

The Who - Tommy. Rock Opera and movie. Ewwwww.

Steve Reich. I do not want to listen to all of the infinite phases and iterations of a 2-second speech sample.

Sinead O'Connor, obviously.
