that would make it easier to count, but still no :)

if you seriously want to adopt such a system of counting we can talk about it - but not in a running competition ;)

Nice list. I'm especially fond of the top 5-6. Chris, I actually should have voted Thick as a Brick higher than I did. It's probably the first album that I both liked and actually understood the fact that it is a concept album.

To be honest, in the past if asked to name a concept album only 3 would have come immediately to mind, Thick as a Brick, Tommy and The Wall. So this has been educating for me I guess.
