    COMPLETELY AGREE!!!! While they are my favorite band and that was my second favorite album of that year, there's just so many great concept albums. It would probably be in my top 10 though.

    No one mentioned Wham - "Make it Big." I am totally disillusioned with you people. >:

    That was my thought seeing the album cover.... Talk about obscure, but cool in a nerdy way.

    Ayreon - Into The Electric Castle and The Human Equation

    Marillion - Misplaced Childhood

    Rick Wakeman - Journey to the Centre of the Earth (though you could add a pile of others here as well, Six Wives of Henry VIII for example)

    Iced Earth - The Dark Saga, can we say Gettysburg? Short but badass.

    Heavenly - Dust to Dust

    Alan Parsons Project - Tales of Mystery and Imagination

    King Diamond - Abigail

    Savatage - Wake of Magellan

    Vanden Plas - Christ O

    obviously Mindcrime like most everyone else.

    Pink Floyd - The Wall

    Jethro Tull - Thick As a Brick

    Kamelot - The Black Halo

    There are others....but these are probably my favorites. Lots to choose from though.

    I'm a huge Priest fan and I enjoy that album more than I probably should. However I don't think its top ten worthy. I definitely agree that it's underrated by most people who were expecting 'Painkiller 2' when they released the 'Nostradamus' single at first. I enjoy it simply because it's vibe kinda reminds me of the 70's Priest and for that alone makes me happy.
