|Yeah Operation: Mindcrime remains the best metal concept album.|
Props for #9. Really good stuff.
My favourite concept works are The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall.
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is also classic.
|Also Marillion's Misplaced Childhood. An absolute classic.|
i haven't heard so much Marillion...and i want to, but i haven't so much time because i have exams....i will listen also the debut of UDO for sure....
|If you wish check this out:|
|@TheNotrap Great song and performance! When i have the time, i will check out this band...and you have to check out more UFO music:).....flawless melodic hard rock....|
|Indeed, I need to check UFO asap.|
|Most of these are great.|
My two favourite concept albums are Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick and Pink Floyd - Animals.
|must feel good to be born in the 70s |
thanks JT, i know that Thick as a brich is considered a masterpiece, but i haven't heard it unfortunately, so it would be pointless to put in the list....
|King Diamond - Abigail|
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway-Genesis
Fear of a Blank Planet/Deadwing-Porcupine Tree
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars-David Bowie
Basically all Coheed and Cambria
You know, shit like that. Good list though. Still need to listen to Operation: Mindcrime.
|Murder by Death - Who Will Survive... |
|Ziltoid. THE concept album. Yup|
|"what do you MEAN music was made after the year 2000? I'm pretty sure that's wrong, man."|
|Edge of Sanity - Crimson and Crimson II |
Nightingale - I/The Breathing Shadow/The Closing Chronicles/Alive Again
should be on this list
|Attack Attack-This Means War|
Linkin Park-A Thousand Suns
|Converge - Jane Doe|
The Fall of Troy - Phantom On The Horizon
Trophy Scars - Darkness, Oh Hell / Never Born, Never Dead
Thrice - The Alchemy Index
Protest The Hero - Kezia
Defeater ( all albums)
|Godspeed - F#A# infiniteeeee|
|@iSkane Thanks, all these are great...Operatin Mindcrime is one the most essensial metal albums of all time...|
|the wall is fucking horrible|
|qwe got it right|
|Amen to that,the wall is a big bag of wank I'd much rather listen to the piper at the gates of dawn.|
|The wall is a masterpiece. Conceptually. Musically not so much. Saw Roger Waters perform the whole album/show extravaganza at the start of the year and I'm still recovering from it. Oh yeah and you forgot David Comes To Life by Fucked Up. One of my favourite concept albums for sure|
|Mastodon - Leviathan|
David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust And the Spiders from Mars
Summoning - all their albums
Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle Earth
Sufjan Stephens – Illinois
and so on
|Wish You Were Here isn't a concept album; only half of it is about Barrett|
|The wall isn't horrible. Qwe can be such a moron sometimes.|
|wheres american idiot? this is dumb|
|Animals should be here|
|"wheres american idiot? this is dumb"|
Animals should swap for WYWH, since it's actually a concept album
Something by Isis would also be welcome
I forgot Blind Guardian, great list...
You are totally right
|I strongly recommend Ayreon - The Human Equation if you're into concept albums. |
I am not so, but i will check out, thanks :)
|carach angren - lammendam|
blind guardian - nightfall in middle earth
|No jesus christ superstar?|
list is good tho
