Opeth - My Arms Your Hearse
Opeth - Still Life (prob. my favourite Opeth album, just brilliant)
Opeth - Ghost Reveries

Does Opeth's Blackwater Park have some kind of a story? I've always thought that it doesn't have any kind of storyline that binds all the songs together, please correct me if Im wrong smile.gif

Yeah your right Toni, in fact as far as I'm aware the only Opeth album that is a 'concept album' in the strictest sense of the term is My Arms Your Hearse. Which is an amazing album, so I'll go for that as my fav.

Yeah, and I think Still Life is also a concept album in the strictest sense of the term, 'cause all of the songs follow the one storyline throughout the whole album. Ghost Reveries is almost a complete concept album, except for the last track, "Isolation Years" smile.gif

Blackwater Park is not a storyline album, but all the songs are about the same theme, and it's very well summarised at the end, so that's why I call it a concept album. But yeah, the only two strict storyline albums are MAYH and SL.

I also have to add two albums that I completely forgot about when I wrote my list:

Ulver - Bergtatt
Ulver - Nattens Madrigal
