The Top 10 Concept Albums of All Time

Rock music went to college in the Sixties. First it started pilfering from classical music and theater. Then someone had the psychedelic-induced idea to carry a single story over an entire album, just like in opera.

Some damn musicologist determined these to be the best examples of this form.
