I find concept albums to be the best, especially double albums. A short list, off the top of my head and without providing links in no specific order: (sorry, too busy now!)
0: Pink Floyd - The Wall
1: Neal Morse Band - The Similitude of a Dream
2: Spock's Beard - Snow
3: Dream Theater - Scenes From a Memory
4: Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime I and II
5: Symphony X - V (The New Mythology)
I usually only listen to music while coding after business hours when I'm less apt to be interrupted.
Have you checked out Steven Wilson's solo stuff, particularly 'The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories)'? Good stuff! I saw him a few months ago in Pensacola in a club...small audience, but they put on an amazing show.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

last weeks have been epic music mixes like: this one[^]

One thing is a must if it has to be during work time, it should have few or no lyrics (the voices can distract me)
After work... my tastes are much much wider.
I always say: Each moment has its music, and each music has its moment.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
No can't do music and work at the same time.
If the music is good then it will just take me over.
Sort of wish that I had the skill to do this but alas never learnt it.
It is either one or the other for me.
That being said I did like your post so thank you.
Never heard of Tobacco before.
Now I have heard about 6 songs from this album.
It is really interesting because at this moment I love it and hate it at the same time.
Sort of thrown me into a musical cognitive dissonance.
So I will have to listen to some more and listen more closely.
So thanks for the post.
