Your Top 10 Concept Albums Of All Time


bran

Recommended Posts

partial concepts(seventh son of a seventh son by iron maiden for example) or maybe a little obscure ones(agalloch albums) are all right

so here is my list

10. the moody blues- days of future passed

basically the story of an everyman, during his day, great album

9. altar of oblivion- sinews of anguish

the story of a german soldier sent to the eastern front in the autumn of 1942

8. bathory- blood on ice

story of a boy whose whole village is killed in a raid and his journey for revenge

7. iced earth- night of the stormrider

man turns his back on religion becomes the vessel for the end of the world

6. king diamond- the eye

a necklace that has seen horrific events of history, (events based on true story)

5. iced earth- dark saga

story of comic books hero spawn

4. agalloch- ashes against the grain

story of hoplesness, and about facing something so strong you cant go against it, and that we are just ashes against the grain

3. king diamond- the puppet master

set in 15th century budapest, puppet master turns people into puppets

2. agalloch- the mantle

the destruction of the world by humans

1. king diamond- abigail

this one should be a movie lol, in 1777 the count La'Fey returns home finds that his wife cheated on him and she is pregnant with a bastard child, the count goes mad throws his wife down the stairs and the baby comes out stillborn, the stillborn baby is named abigail and is mummified in a crypt in the house, in 1845 Jonathan La'Fey inherits the house. :)

Not a fan of concept albums (they're usually pretty dull) - but let's do this...

1- Gorillaz - Demon Days --> BEST CONCEPT ALBUM EVER.

2- Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

3- King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King

Nobody said The Wall yet? Definately that album. Also "Cruelty and the Beast" by Cradle of Filth (bran if you haven't heard it, listen to it).

i will give it a shot thanks

They're sort of an acquired taste, but I'm guessing at least you'll appreciate the lyrical brilliance throughout the album (it's a concept album on countess Bathory if you haven't googled it yet ;))
