Into the Concept

I created this blog with the intent of dissecting the albums that fall into the category of ‘concept albums’. These albums have a cohesion between the songs that add to on overarching meaning. Some of them tell stories, while others make political statements, or explore philosophical concepts. I aim to look at both the lyrical content of the albums, as well as the musical content. Artists love to find ways to connect the dots, or to add symbolism through motifs, and I feel like these albums deserve an in depth analysis to explore the ideas the artist intended to share.
