Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea's music is one that evokes conceptual tones.

Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?
Good Kid M.A.A.D City
Ravedeath 1972
MISTA THUG ISOLATION
Heartland
Several C93 albums
Time Machines
Half of Sufjan Stevens' albums

>having a common theme throughout and the progression of a story in an album doesn't constitute a concept album

then what the fuck does? you're retarded

He just doesn't want to acknowledge it's a concept album because he doesn't like it.
Hell, I don't like half the albums I posted, but they are all definitely concept albums.

Damn I'm loving this shit

>>48413644
No, I enjoy it and other of montreal, but I worded it badly. The so called transformation into georgie fruit on "the past" is very vague, to me it's too ambiguous to be a clear cut concept album

Is ITCOTCK's concept too vague for you? Because as concepts go, that one is pretty vague.

The concept is about Kanye West's life and relationship with the media.
