The tile " Masterpiece " has probably different meanings for peoples different taste in music.

The usual suspects arise when people are asked what they regard as a " Masterpiece " Albums such as :-

The Beatles Sgt Pepper
The Beach Boys Pet Sounds
Fleetwood Mac Rumours.

For me however i regard this as my choice of a Masterpiece Album. Nothing before or since has been recorded in this vein.

The Moody Blues " Days Of Future Passed " Please feel free to add you choices.

The term "masterpiece" is quite subjective as it is dependant upon ones preferred genre.

I enjoy most types of music, but rock, of most any era is my "go to".

Bon Scott era AC/DC is a favorite of mine, so I will nominate Highway to Hell.

Cutting edge at the time, and the sequence of songs is genius, IMO.

Unfortunately, since the death of Malcolm Young (I assume it's related), YouTube has restricted much of the bands music.

Greatest hits from Queen is as well

For me it's Radiohead's Ok Computer.

No millennial artist or band, in my opinion, has yet to make a masterwork. And we're running out of time to do so. We're already almost beyond the average age of peak creativity in music that is between 23 and 27. There is still hope, but I don't see it happening. We millennials seem to be devoid of vision and exceptional ability in the arts. I blame singing competition shows for corrupting an entire generation and deluding them from ever knowing what creating music is supposed to be about.

I think that observation is genre specific though.

I'm not a big rap/hip hop efficianado, but there are some talented artists there.

You have to bear in mind the changes in the music business, as well.

Historically, the super groups of the past made their bones through album sales, promoted by concert tours. That's not the business model used today, with the advent of streaming, and downloads.

Out of curiosity, do you consider bands like Foo Fighters, and Chili Peppers gen X?

Every song made by Pink Floyd is a masterpiece. That's it.

A few of my favs..

Rush 2112
The Who Tommy
Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon
Herbie Hancock Head Hunters
Grateful Dead American Rose
Miles Davis Bitches Brew

"Masterpiece" albums to me includes exceptional musicianship, grand conceptualization and meaningful lyrics that from beginning to end tell a story or take you on a journey. Although there are numerous great bands with talent, an album is a particular expression at a particular time from the artists and it just seems...magical. My choices are on the rock and jazz ,side but I feel that is where more musicianship is, compared to other genres. Granted I am limiting myself because I do not favor all genres, but honestly many genres lack the substance to create masterpiece albums, where every song is exceptional and there is depth and diversity. This is my humble(getting old and cynical) opinion of course. The last album I dug from beginning to end from this century was Tool's Lateralus.

I miss the masterpiece era

You didn't ask me, but the answer is most definitely YES. RHCP have been around since the early 80s.
