* In ChildishGambino's ''Camp'', all of the songs on it work by themselves, but when listened to in order they tell an autobiographical story: his difficult childhood ("Outside"), his rise to fame ("Fire Fly"), the contrasting narcissism ("Bonfire") and self-loathing ("All the Shine") that accompany it, his difficulty having actual relationships now that he's successful ("Heartbeat," "L.E.S.," "Kids"), and finally facing his problems ("That Power"). Plus some epic BoastfulRap interludes here and there (which still relate thematically to the overall story).

* [[Music/{{Minutemen}} Mike Watt]]'s ''Ball Hog Or Tugboat?'' had no over-riding lyrical theme, but musically it was all about collaboration: A different group of musicians played on each song, and usually someone other than Watt himself would sing lead vocals (Music/HenryRollins and [[Music/{{Pixies}} Frank Black]], for instance).

* Music/APerfectCircle's ''Thirteenth Step'' is a concept album about addiction - even the one CoverSong ("The Nurse Who Loved Me", originally by Failure) fits with the overall theme.

* Saint Etienne's ''Tales From Turnpike House'' is a series of vignettes about a day in the life of the residents of a north London block of flats (which doesn't really narrow things down much, since nearly ''all'' of their music is about London in one way or another), including TheAlcoholic Gary Stead [[spoiler:(who turns out to be Drowning His Sorrows)]] and a couple played by Sarah Cracknell and David Essex arguing about leaving the city to go and live TheGoodLife. Their stories all eventually link up in the penultimate track, the epic "Teenage Winter".
