Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" is a great concept album, imo.

Genesis - Fly on a Windshield (1974)

I never got into Genesis. NOt that I thought they were bad, but I never came to like them.

Peaceful World by the Rascals was good. In Search of the Lost Chord by the Moody Blues. Any of the Inside albums by Paul Horn.

For me, it's Alice Cooper's "The Last Temptation"...
It can be viewed on so many levels.

And it's just so dark

For me it is 2112 by Rush... The talent of all the members mixed with the story has inspired me since my youth. It's so epic, and moving.

Rush - 2112

Ayreon Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer blew my mind as well...

My House on Mars

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Though I suppose everything he did could be considered a concept album one of my all time favorites is Frank Zappa's "Joe's Garage". A most excellent album.

Also The Kinks "Soap Opera" is a classic.

I also like The Universal Migrator, being a fan of Tiamat myself, track #2 My house on mars is my fav from that album.

The Wall Pink Floyd, for all the obvious reasons

Dies IRae from Devil Doll, its really something...

King Crimson is also cool, but the latter 3 are my favorites...

sadly, given time everything turns into a cliche
