I don't know if something 50 years old still qualifies as experimental, but I'm sure it did when it came out. And I'm sure it's still "challenging" and "different" to most listeners.

A Saucer Full of Secrets, by Pink Floyd.   To me this is like a mini-opera... I picture it as a storm or maybe a battle.  The first 3 minutes are gathering clouds or rising tension. Then, 3 minutes of fury... it would be a stretch even calling it music... it's just chaos and discord.  Then the storm dissipates, the battle comes to an end, or whatever.  And the finale, the last 5 minutes or so of the song is mourning, grieving, and then rebuilding... repairing the damage, picking up the pieces, starting anew.  David Gilmour was only about 21 when this was recorded... his voice kind of cracks when he comes in with the vocal, but he soldiers on regardless.

I think the final 5 minutes of this is among my favorite pieces of music ever. I find it so beautiful that it makes my eyes mist up.
