Stories told over multiple songs

Maybe this is far fetched, but whatever. Have you come across something similar?

This story seems to be about truth.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

Not only that, but acts such as Protomen have stories told over multiple albums.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

there are countless instances of stories told over multiple tracks. that is the idea for most musicians though, to tell a story. doing it over multiple tracks allows for a story with different "chapters".

Yeap, concept albums have been around forever. "A Grand Don't Come For Free" by The Streets is one of my favorites.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

Let's not forget all the cultures out there, who passed their own stories from generation to generation in music and song, as well as actual story form. It's been going on since the dawn of humanity..nothing new, strange or wonderful about it all really.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

if I had to name one as my favorite:

"Elusive" by Presure drop

this thing is a psychedelic trip by itself

Loving the concept and I'll probably do it myself at some point, it feels a little bit like something "symphonic"

Probably the ultimate Concept Album, if you're in the mood for a story.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

Lamb Lies Down is completely amaz-a-ballz, start to finish. Just mind blowing. Hard to believe they became the semi-lame pop band of the 80s.

Peter left!

That's only half the reason though, and mostly tongue in cheek.

Effectively they have always been a pop/rock group, rock music just used to be a lot wilder + creative.

I'm of the age where so many of these bands were complete GARB when I was exposed to them. Who would have known they were once awesome.

ZZ top, Rolling Stones come to mind.

Re: Stories told over multiple songs

Not what I would expect to be of any interest here, however the story of this record is pretty neat.

Jackson Browne Running on Empty is a record all about being a touring musician. Also every song is recorded on the road. From in concert to hotel rooms and tour bus. As someone who lived that lifestyle for a while, I really found the record connected with me. Funny I never discovered it until 2004. Sure, heard it in passing but actual listen was way late. hahaha
