    Oh I forgot three very important ones: Ulver - Bergtatt, Kveldssanger (more of a theme, I guess), and Nattens Madrigal (again a theme)

    Really? I thought Fear Of A Blank Planet followed a clear storyline, and GR Is a concept apart from isolation years (just the songs are in the wrong order, I think). I agree about IA, Deadwing and The Bedlam In Goliath being themes rather than concepts, I just didn't realise we were being so pedantic :D

    Both Steve, and Mike have stated numerous times that FoaBP, and GR are not concept albums, but rather theme. I'd say an actual coherent story rather than just themes makes a big enough difference especially considering just about every album has some sort of theme or themes.

    At least Deadwing is. Even though its lyrics has never been published, but yes, it is a concept album. SW wants to make a movie out of the albums concept

    For In Absentia, I think it's about some murderer, although it doesn't become that clear when you're listening to it.:rolleyes:

    I'm surprised noone mentioned the downward spiral by nine inch nails, it's trent's sort of auto-biography musically. Great album.

    I think MAYH is more epic than still life but still life might be better hm..
