What are the greatest visual albums of all time? Defined as vivid video artwork for musicians' studio LPs, visual albums paint artists' musical production in an extraordinary light beyond three to five minute music videos. Such films contain a wide range of storytelling, cinematic direction, costumes, and set designs to bring each full-length album's music to life beyond their streamed audio releases. From Beyoncé's BLACK IS KING and Lemonade to Kacey Musgraves' star-crossed, this list features all of the best visual albums written and produced by the musicians themselves.
