* ''Music/TheFinalCut'' by Music/PinkFloyd involves the strict schoolmaster from ''TheWall'' being haunted by his time fighting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and his futile attempts to relate his traumas to his loved ones or warn his pupils of the madness of war, whie he watches the Falkland Islands War unfold. It also serves as an indictment of UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher and sums up Waters' feelings that she betrayed the "post war dream" of peace and goodwill soldiers like Waters' late father died to protect.

* Music/DanielAmos, upon reinventing themselves as a NewWave band, embarked on an ambitious four-album concept series, ''The Alarma Chronicles'', intended as a wake-up call for American Christians. The first album, ''Music/{{Alarma}}'' (1981), was about the corruption of the Church--a scathing satire of Christians' shortcomings. ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}'' (1983) was about the corruption of the Self--a reflection and acknowledgement of one's own character flaws. ''Music/VoxHumana'' (1984) was about the corruption of the World--an examination of the dehumanizing effects of materialism and new technology. And the final album, ''Music/FearfulSymmetry'' (1986), was a vision of {{Heaven}}. A single story, in four parts, ran in the liner notes of each album, further tying all of them together.

Added DiffLines:

* Most Music/BigBigTrain releases are concept albums, or have a unifying theme: ''The Underfall Yard'' is about the history's great builders and engineers; ''Folklore'' is about ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

* Say Anything's ''...Is A Real Boy'' was originally intended to be a rock opera, complete with spoken-word interludes between the songs explaining the story's progression. This knowledge of the album's backstory makes songs like "I Want to Know Your Plans" all the more [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome dimensional and profound]]. Tragically, the speaking parts were cut from the final album though the story remains the same and is briefly explained in the liner notes of the album:

* Creator/NeilCicierega's double album, ''[[http://www.neilcic.com/mouthsounds/ Mouth Sounds]]''/''[[http://www.neilcic.com/mouthsilence/ Mouth Silence]]',' runs on the concept that music can transcend time when given enough power. Both albums take place in a universe where Music/SmashMotuh's "All Star" did not exist naturally. ''Mouth Silence'' takes place on May 3rd, 1999, and throughout the album there are very subtle hints that "All Star" (which, acroding to the double album's lore, existed in a parallel universe where it grew so powerful that it destroyed all other music) is trying to breach through the barrier between worlds. ''Mouth Sounds'' takes place the day after ''Mouth Silence'', when "All Star" gained enough power to successfully author itself into the "Non-Star universe" (it is also [[MeaningfulReleaseDate the day "All Star" was released as a single in real life]]).
