The Top Ten

Tommy is one of the most infamous concept records of all times. It deals with the human condition and the pursuit of answers to questions we most likely won't find until we die.
Year Zero takes a look at a kind of apocalyptic situation from about 16 different views all of them come in together perfectly and thnk about this Capital G and Survivalism were the singles on this album and about half of the rest of the album is better than both of those songs amazing album
This record was a gripping and fully engaging story line that unfolded itself in stages leading up to the release, with clues hidden in bathrooms at shows and all over the internet. The band is amazing and the concept is right up my alley!

David Bowie's concept was exhilarating. It explored the alter ego that exists in all of us, but as humans, we feel the overwhelming pressure to subdue it. He explored his right in front of our eyes.
Best album of all time, it changed my life, NUMBER 1
This is one of my favorite records of all time. It deals with the full spectrum of human emotions as it takes you through the course of a day. This one you need to experience for yourself!

Brilliant but a little bit underrated masterpiece
This concept album deals with the age-old battle of good vs evil which is nothing new. However, what the Flaming Lips did was add the post script of emotions over the battle. It incites thoughts and reflections of death and regret that aren't generally dealt with in that kind of story.
Great album that I think is about breast cancer?
With a twisting love hate relationship with the press, it made sense that Billy Corgan would make a record dealing with how the media wars informed his songwriting. The Pumpkins include spirituality in their quest for existential answers.
A very amazing storyline about a land called Rhye, with a very magical fantasy twist. No album has ever come close to this.
Though not strictly a "concept album", the song 2112 is simply amazing. A great storyline, coupled with great bass and guitar playing, and a positively epic drummer. The other half of the album is pretty good too.
This one is very old school. One of the first of its kind, this record had a fun sci-fi theme.
