    Sure, I like The Wall and Sgt. Pepper, but Largo is probably my favorite concept album. What's yours?
    If you're not familiar with Largo, go here for a few reviews.

    Heh, I ran this tournament on a music forum a few months ago. I forget what album won, though.

    My favorite is The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

    I'm not sure which is my favorite, but my guiltiest pleasure is Marillion's Clutching at Straws. Only Fish can get away with singing this (and so earnestly):

    They boarded up the synagogues, Uzis on a street corner

    You can't take a photograph of Uzis on a street corner

    The DJ resigned today they wouldn't let him have his say

    Surface scratched where the needles play, Uzis on a street corner

    Sgt. Pepper really is only a "concept album" by the broadest of definitions....

    George: We're Only In It For the Money is still, technically, a Mothers album--which, of course, is Frank Zappa. But, then, we're geeks!

    For the record, at the top of this category is the June, 1967, release by that British quartet from Liverpool (and it is a concept album--the very definition of such).
