    I'm really into albums that have either one long song, or are broken down into several tracks, but the album is meant to flow as one track. Examples:

    Edge of Sanity - Crimson 1
    Edge of Sanity - Crimson 2
    Diabolical Masquerade - Death's Design
    Green Carnation - Light of Day, Day of Darkness
    Meshuggah - I
    Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects - Sol Niger Within


    Genre doesn't matter, as long as the music is good, (i.e. Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick, not metal, but still awesome)

    Any recommendations for albums of similar nature? Thanks guys.

    I don't really have any, but when I see someone talk about Sol Niger Within, I think it's called Soul my pals Within

    I don't know if this is your thing, but Dream Theater's Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is a two disc with a 42 minute song on the second.

    i would say "a change of seasons" is more of a "one-song album" than six degrees. that album seems more like a bunch of different, but related, songs.

    That song is half the album, and divided up into several sections like i thought he was asking...but now that i re-read what he said I guess maybe it doesn't fit...

    ps. Im a fan of DT, yet absolutely cannot stand the second disc of Six Degrees...right from the opening overture, its everything i loathe about DT packaged into one neat little disc

    After reading about them in the prog thread I downloaded Nektars 'Remeber the Future pt 1 and 2'. Its two songs but it might aswell be one, pretty cool stuff

    Is Green Carnation any good? I've thinkin about getting that 1 song album for a while...

    I was thinking dredg immediately when I read this thread. Their first album "Leitmotif" is even more flowing...a concept album, like El Cielo. Great great band.

    The album that you're too lazy to look up the name for is THE TRIUMPH OF STEEL. "Achilles: Agony and Ecstasy in Seven Parts" is the first track, and clocks in just under 30 minutes. There are seven other songs on the album, so I guess it doesn't classify as a "One song album," but anyway... The song is pretty much the embodiment of metal excess, for better or for worse, much like TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS by Yes was seen by many to be an exercise in overindulgence (although I happen to like that album). Manowar's song features over-the-top vocals and theatrics , long extended instrumental passages, neverending soloing from each member and hell, it's about the Trojan War. You can't get more "metal" than that. :)

    Hopefully nobody's mentioned it, Dream Theater - A Change of Season
    Although it's more of a long song than a full album.

    My real problem was that I have it on tape... and the tapes are in a box 180 miles away. Anyways Manowar was my fav metal band before Opeth, and since posting a week ago about how i havent listened to them since Opeth, ive went back and listened to them on MP3... (mp3s bought off of Manowar a few years ago) yea, go go Crown and the Ring!!
