    In Search of Truth-Evergrey
    Abigail-King Diamond

    By looking at the lists, some folks don't get the concept of a concept album.

    Alien - Strapping young Lad *** You might not consider this a concept album, but if you listen closely to the progression of the lyrics, it is all one fantastic concept.

    I love 2112, but really only half of the album is the concept...the rest of it really isn't that strong IMO. I had that choice as well, but now that I think about it...

    I think Edge of Sanity's 'Crimson' and 'Crimson II' should be mentioned here!
    Fantastic stories.

    I had to create an account in order to mention

    Bathory - Blood on Ice

    I am really surprised that no one mentioned it. So far the best concept album i have ever heard.
