Wednesday Question: Best Concept Album?
The best concept albums take the listener on an epic journey, sometimes through time and space or through a roller coaster of emotions and dramatic storytelling. Some use lyrics to tell their story, and other use musical metaphors to carry the listener into their destination.

Whatever the concept, these records stand up because they take music to the next level as an art form. And in a magical way, the best concept records live on past the moment they stop playing because they prompt so much thought.

That's why this weeks question is:

What are the top 10 concept albums ever?


Concept albums don't just have to be from prog bands. They could be anything from a rock opera to a long experimental jam that merges into one, like "Dopesmoker" by Sleep. Or that single-track album "I" by Meshuggah. Or that French film score by Mogwai. Of course, a bit of Pink Floyd won't go amiss ... but you can vote for whatever you want! Whatever floats your boat, you're welcome to nominate it in the comments.

Post one nomination per comment, and upvote posts that you agree with. We'll collect the results into a top 10 this Friday. Good luck!
