Before online music purchasing let us just buy a single song - Albums could be these cool, cohesive entities; sometimes articulating an entire integrated vision.
In popular music, a concept album is an album that is "unified by a theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, narrative, or lyrical".Concept albums tend to incorporate preconceived musical or lyrical ideas rather than being improvised or composed in the studio, with all songs contributing to a single overall theme or unified story.

THE CRIMSON IDOL is a full length conceptual album that tells the twisted tale of a suicidal rock & roll icon and the perils that come with fame. With guitarist Chris Holmes no longer a member of W.A.S.P., Blackie Lawless recorded THE CRIMSON IDOL with guitarist Bob Kulick and drummers Stet Howland and Frankie Banali. Voted one of the Top 20 conceptual albums of all-time by Metal Hammer magazine, THE CRIMSON IDOL is obviously more of a soundtrack than say a straight rock n' roll album. Released internationally in '92, THE CRIMSON IDOL was not released in the United States until 1993 and gave W.A.S.P. their first U.S. radio hit single with "Hold On To My Heart." Ironcally enough, it was the way Capitol Records handled the push (or lack thereof) on "Hold On To My Heart" that made Blackie decide to leave Capitol Records. http://www.waspnation.com/crimson.html
