I think its pretty interesting when a band creates an entire album from a story, etc.
Like weezer's pinkerton, and the japanese culture. and ozma's doubble donkey disc, and russia.

What do you guys think of these kinds of albums?

or, Green Day -> American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown

These example show concept albums aren't always the best way to go... i was disappointed by these =[

not so sure about Pinkerton, just a lot of the songs on there were salvaged from the aborted songs from the black hole and put on there in no real order.

Alice Cooper's newest one, 'Along Came A Spider'. Fictional story but good album nonetheless.

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

The Crane Wife by the Decemberists

"It's a story about a peasant in rural Japan who finds a wounded crane on an evening walk; there's an arrow in its wing. He revives the crane and the crane flies away. A couple days later, a mysterious woman shows up at his door and he takes her in. Eventually they fall in love and get married. But they're very poor, so she suggests that she start weaving this cloth which he can in turn sell at the market—the condition being that when she's weaving it, she has to do it behind closed doors and he can't look in. So this goes on for a while and they actually become kind of wealthy. But eventually, his curiosity gets the best of him and he looks in at her while she's weaving and it turns out that she's a crane and she's been pulling feathers from her wings and putting it into the cloth, which is what makes it so beautiful. But him having seen her breaks the spell, and she turns back into a crane and flies away. That's the end."[2]"
