Concept albums... You can either love them or hate them LOL
 
 
Mine would have to be Scenes from a Memory, but Crimson comes in a close second.

I've got a few favorites. It might be a toss up between Fredrik Thordendal's Sol Niger Within, Pain of Salvation's Be, or Pig Destroyer's Prowler in the Yard.

Though if you are going by the loose definition of concept album, then BTBAM's Colors by far.
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

Mindcrime comes to mind, Crimson too and of course some of the classic King Diamond albums like Abigail, Them, Conspiracy and The Eye.

Many of King Diamond's concept albums are quite entertaining.  I really enjoyed "The Puppet Master" when it first came out.

Yes too many fans of Dream Theater! Kill 'em all!

Excuse me but I'm the only one who likes the album "A Pleasant Shade Of Grey" here? All the art metallers support only Dream Theater?

You're not alone. APSOG is easily one of my favorite Fates Warning albums.  Smile

I have the Awaken The Guardian re-issue with liner notes from Mike Portnoy where he states that Fates Warning were doing what Dream Theater were doing before Dream Theater. Wink

Weird way of saying it, but it gets the pint a cross. Tongue
