"School's out forever..."

Well, not for forever, but for a loooong time. Three months to be exact! :)
It feels so nice to be back at home for awhile.

So I had a really really really good idea for a post, but I can't remember what it was now. :(

Hopefully it will come back for me.

For now... I ran across this article - 10 Concept Albums You Need To Own

So... do you own 'em?

I love how under The Wall, the writer says: "Try watching the movie sometime for a real uplifting treat." <-- Too funny! It's true though, I remember being completely depressed after I watched the movie. What other concept albums do you enjoy that didn't make the list?

For me...

Of course the other PF concept album - Dark Side. It's just awesome. No words for it.

Eagles - Desperado. It's good. Real good.

P.S. If you say Green Day - American Idiot, I might throw up and call you an idiot. Don't judge me. ;)

Any Album by Taylor Swift is a go for me....oops I guess that is not Classic Rock. Owell!

HAHA, oh Emily... if T Swift had any concept albums, she would definitely be on my list.

"Desperado" is definitely pretty decent. Bernie Leadon was still in the band.

"Mr. Hat" and his lists are slightly annoying, though. He needs to get away from the mirror and start actually listening to the music that he's writing about. I'm surprised that Miley Cyrus' latest didn't make the cut :)

Sean, I agree -- I'm not too fond of this guy's articles... I just really like lists!
And, haha, I will admit that I am guilty of liking Taylor Swift... I like about 5% of "today's" music.

I've always loved Desperado, but I'd have to put Quadrophenia as my number one. It's just so damn good...and it doesn't get any better for The Who than "The Real Me" or "5:15". Maybe other than Dark Side of the Moon, I think Quadrophenia has the best flow and continuity of any album. Plus, it's a double album.

Of course, you can't go wrong with any of the Pink Floyd or Jethro Tull offerings.

Also, what about Styx's "The Grand Illusion"? Not too bad.

I'm not going to argue or complain about what this guy included, left off, ripped, admired, whatever; because like most music critics(and I use that term in the loosest sense), he sees himself as better than the "plebeians" that buy this music. I know what kind of music I like, and no one can tell me any different.

There are two that I consider to be quintessential concept albums; and I have both-

2112- Rush


Operation: Mindcrime-Queensryche

I'd also put Rick Wakeman's Journey to the Center of the Earth on the list. It's not high on the popularity list, but it's a fantastic album, nonetheless.
