    Well I think that there is The Wall, and then everything else. It almost doesn't bear mentioning because it is a totally different league - as in its awesome.

    Imagine being the band responsible for the best concept album and one of the worst concept albums.

    As far as concept albums go I like Evergrey's The Inner Circle slightly better than Mindcrime.

    They also did In Search of Truth which is less than stellar

    Agreed. Both The Wall and OM are masterpieces.

    Spreading the Disease has always been my favourite on that album. Always sounds great live too.

    Opeth's "Still Life" and " My Arms Your Hearse" are my favourite concept albums, maybe followed by "The Perfect Element" by Pain of Salvation.

    The Wall and really the whole Pink Floyd catalog are a little different. They're more like theater considering how much the storyline is embellished into the music. Even the best concept albums seem to be songs with narration to tie them together (as Garret said), the Pink Floyd stuff seem to be equal parts story AND music.

    I was lucky enough to catch them on the Mindcrime tour when they were opening for Metallica back in '88 or '89. Granted it was a shortened set but I remembering being absolutely floored by how good they sounded.

    I agree though it's hands down one of my favorite albums.

    You know, I never really thought of The Chemical Wedding as a concept album, but I suppose you could plausibly argue it is, right down to some of the thematic echoes, with The Alchemist fading into a reprise of The Chemical Wedding. Intresting. Also, what's Operation Mindcrime 2?

    I don't know if I'd put this out for consideration for best concept album ever, though it is very good, but I'd say best concept album almost no one has ever heard of is Floater's "Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone."
