    I created this topic to talk about the possibility of LP creating another concept record such as A Thousand Suns in the future. One of the reasons i find ATS to be the best album of LP, apart from its difference in sound compared to what they had created in the past, is also because it is a beautiful concept album that combines its tracks all together and creates a theme. I believe that if LP were to create another concept record, ATS would have a competitor in terms of epicness, diversity and groundbreaking-ness. What is your opinion? Do you think LP can pull it off and give us another epic album such as this? Discuss.

    i'd be so in for another concept album. i mean you could argue that MTM and THP are, but not in the 'strength' of ATS.

    I'd like to see them do an actual concept album, one that has a story.

    The should do their own "The Wall" or "American Idiot".

    Would be really interesting to get an Album with a story.

    The Hunting Party touring cycle will go down as one of their most aggressive and exhaustive yet.

    If they took a long break and returned with a mega 2-disc magnum opus, that would be the dream.

    Thing is, i don't even know if the band can pull this off again, or even, if the want to try at all. It was a really stressful procedure, one that we got to see inside the making of.

    Can they even make a concept record? And I don't mean musically because they love to link up their songs anyway, but lyrically? Can they tell a story over 10 songs that has a proper arc?

    After ATS and LT I would say yes but after hearing THP I really, really doubt it unless they either bring in a new producer or don't let Brad anywhere near lyrics (this being the assumption that THP has worse lyrics than their previous 3 albums due to the new involvement of Brad).
