Best - Sgt. Pepper's, Tommy
Worst - American Idiot wasn't a good concept album. 21CB was, but AI isn't.

EDIT: Pet Sounds was ****ing awful.

The best begins with The Who's Tommy and ends with Lou Reed's Berlin. The travesties begins with Pink Floyd's The Wall (<,< >,> and continues on.

-Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Silverburst (Invader/'59)
-Fender Standard Telecaster HH Black (SH-5/'59)
-Fender Standard Stratocaster HH White (Nazgul/'59)

I will change my response to:

wowie, what an incredibly interesting list with an author who has many obvious bias'.

You guys think the Wall isn't a travesty?

The Wall was absolute garbage.



QFT! There were a few standout tracks, but the rest was just bloated and repeated the same points over and over. And don't even get me STARTED on The Wall: The Movie.

Also, 2112 made me laugh out loud at its lyrics.
I'll play it and tell you what it is later.

I'm sorry, how is The Wall a travesty?

EDIT: I read a few more after that. One word,

BULLSHIT

I never could understand how an album so rife with filler could be considered such a "classic".

I'll fall on a hand-grenade and say I agreed with it.

1. Open My Computer.
2. Open C:
3. Click on WINDOWS.
4. Open the folder "Media."
5. Click on the file "onestop."
6. Listen.

the wall defiantly wasnt a travesty, its my favorite floyd album

and i thought it was odd how public enemy is on there
you brought a hooker to church?
#23
I like th ewall and mindcrime and the lamb lies down on broadway and (as much as I hate to admit it) 21cb and kilroy.
Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry
AC/DC
StoneRider
Freedomhawk
The Darkness and/or the sideprojects of the band members
Buckcherry
The Answer

Theres more. But those are the main ones
#26
The only one of those I can really disagree with is 2112. And even then, that is still a very mockable, silly album. I don't quite think it's a travesty, but it's not the high point of their career.

But still. Lists, stupid, etc.

i'd be inclined to disagree with Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and 2112 being where they are on there

Sgt. Peppers isn't even a concept album...

The Wall > Dark Side of the Moon

Also, yeah, Sgt. Peppers really isn't a concept album. It started out as one, then they just abandoned the whole thing but everyone thinks it's a concept album. It has no consistent theme that holds it together.

Also, Frank Zappa was unfairly overlooked. Be it Joe's Garage or any of his first three albums with the Mothers.

Zappa never did concept albums, his whole body of work is one continuous concept.

He even said so himself.

Probably because it isn't mainstream enough or something. But Dream Theater's Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory, is quite amazing.

I pretty much count his first four albums up to Cruising With Ruben & The Jets as one album. But I do remember him saying that, and it does show. But he kind of has his chapters. Seventies Zappa is a whole lot different than sixties.

As for Pinkerton, not a concept album. Was going to be but was abandoned.

By the way, I looked up that King Kong album. T'was okay, nothing really special.

No Kezia and no De-Loused in the Comatorium = FAIL

As much as I love both of those albums to death, they've had no effect on too much of the world and were both done in an era when the concept album had long since been nothing special. I would be shocked if either were on the list, but not considering it a good thing.

Also, if De-Loused was on this list, it'd be in the travesties section. I can tell that right off.

Exactly where it belongs.

While it's probably their best album, it still can't constitute amazing. Dream Theater's lyrics are pretty sub-par, decent at best, and it's entirely music that's no more than technical, with no real feel to it. I like the story of Scenes from a Memory when it comes down to it, but I think it doesn't have a place on this list, anyhow.
