What are your Favorite Concept Albums other than Pink Floyd, Rush, or Eagles.

I dug Mastadon Crack the Skye.

I am looking for an album to put on and listen from end to end to.

Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime

Glorious stuff, magic!

It took about 5 runs till I was hooked, some 20 years ago. Still one of my favs of all time, regularly listening to it as well, at least once per month.
Check out the DVD Operation Livecrime too.

I think the lead singer's dad was a physist who worked on some string theory and alternate universe theories.

Sounds about right. Eels is very honest and haunting. Great album.

Quite possibly the greatest convergence of sports and music ever conceived.

Pretty Hate Machine is their best CD(the CD you are referring to), but not a concept album.

Downward Spiral is not as a good as PHM but as far as a concept goes, is a great listen.

That's the creepiest album I have ever listented to.

There are a few brilliant moments on that album (Reptile, Hurt, A Warm Place) and it is pretty good throughout.

Reznor uses an array of creepy, dark samples and instruments that tie the album together under a uniform production that feels like layers of horror movies piled up on top of one another.

Yeah it is dark as can be, a concept of someone losing all faith in humanity that ultimately ends in suicide, Reznor pulled it off not only with the lyrics but the score as well because it gives me chills listening to it. it gave me a real feeling for this person, like it was happening right in front of my eyes, and the last song on the cd "Hurt" just put an exclamation point on the whole CD, the most important song on the CD.

This. Tool is the greatest band of all time. Downward spiral is classic. I would add system of a downs hypnotize / mesmerize double album.

I really appreciate Tool (though not love them), but I do not see how you could consider any of their albums as concept ?

I know you said other than Pink Floyd, but I think The Final Cut is one of the most underrated concept albums ever.
