After a quick scan of the miraculous search bar, I have decided to make this thread.

What are your favourite Concept Albums?

Mine are:

A Grand Don't Come For Free - The Streets
Metropolis Part II: Scenes From A Memory - Dream Theater
Ziltoid - The Devin Townsend Band
Still Life - Opeth (I believe it's a concept album, correct me if I'm wrong)
Blood Mountain - Mastodon
Good Apollo 1 & 2 - Coheed & Cambria

I'm looking for more, any tips?

I read that was about zombies or something - anyone care to explain? Unfortunately, I seem to have completely missed the zombies in that album.

no. they basically started writing the album as a concept, but only half the songs made it onto the album, with other songs being added purely because the band liked them.

but if you listen/read the lyrics, the concept sides pretty much a continuation of 'bullets' (i cant be arsed to type the whole album name)

HAS (for me) to be Metropolis (Part 1 The Miracle and the Sleeper and Part 2 Scenes from a Memory) by Dream Theater

This includes part 1 off of Images and Words, brilliant concept, brilliant album & song.

Well he said it's something like an album revolving around a "central theme viewed from the viewpoints of 3 different characters, each embodying (sp?) aspects of the band members".


So Kezia (if it counts or not) or The Downward Spiral by NIN.


How has no-one said The Downward Spiral yet?!

Rody said its not a concept album because it is a situation not a storyline.
Concept albums don't have to follow a storyline however, DSOtM doesn't really have much of a storyline, its just songs connected by a common theme.

However, whether an album is a concept album or not is solely at the discretion of the band, after all they would be the ones who would know best.
So I guess Kezia could be called a concept album, it all depends on how you choose to interpret the album.

Colors
Kezia

Protest the Hero said it was really a concept album, but more of a situation or something like that...oh well i guess it counts

and Colors isnt a concept album. All the tracks feel like one track, but the songs dont really follow a story.

Pretty much the albums in the quotes and MCR albums are my favorite

And then... there's Epica's New album... believe me, it's their best effort so far.

The Divine Conspiracy. Beautiful and epic.

Dream Theater - Octavarium

The Wall, for sure.
Dark Side of the Moon was pretty epic.
The Black Parade was actually alright, imo.
Wish You Were Here. Amazing.
