Top 10 Best Concept Albums


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Bedlam In Goliath - Mars Volta
62 Desperado - Eagles
63 Black Veil Brides - Wretched and Divine
64 The Black Halo - Kamelot

An unbelievably good album. - Psi

65 Radiohead - Kid A
66 El Dorado - Electric Light Orchestra
67 Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown

Any album with 21 Guns, Know Your Enemy, and 21st Century Breakdown deserves to be recognized

68 Testimony - Neal Morse

It's just ' incredible, from the gargantuan sound to the amazing instrumentation... Definitely some of the best music in modern prog. Possibly the greatest Christian album of all time.

69 Lou Reed - Berlin

One of the most depressive album I've ever heard.

70 The House of Gold & Bones, Part 1 - Stone Sour

Newer album, but has a great ongoing story, topped off with some advanced guitaring for Stonesour's usual. Some of the best hits of last year were off these albums such as "Absolute Zero", "Do Me A Favor", and "Tired". and other great songs without mainstream attention like "Gone Sovereign" and "The Uncanny Valley" are great ones. I'm sure this album will get more recognition during time, altogether these 2 concept albums will be certified platinum sooner or later.

71 The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1 - Five Finger Death Punch

These 2 concept albums have their ups and downs, but ultimately I believe part 1 is the best. "Lift Me Up" ft Rob Halford is an amazing song, along with "Watch You Bleed" and the cover of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" ft Tech N9ne. Don't really like the storyline, and I think there's too many covers in these albums along with featured artists, which is my only complaint. Part 2 had "Battle Born" which is a good one and a cover of "House Of The Rising Sun". I'd have to say Lift Me Up was my favorite song of 2013. The solo in Mama Said Knock You Out is very creative then their usual. If you're a heavy metal fan, or FFDP fan and haven't heard any of these songs, I highly recommend to take a listen!

72 Rise - Skillet

Best Christian concept album.

73 Marilyn Manson - Mechanical Animals
74 Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
75 Mastodon - Crack the Skye
76 Mastodon - Blood Mountain
77 Blood On Ice - Bathory
78 Darkest Days - Stabbing Westward
79 Mike Oldfield - The Songs of Distant Earth
80 Triumvirat - Spartacus

Lesser known Krautrock-Band telling their prog-version of the story of Spartacus. Best track: 'The March to the Eternal City'.
