2015 TPM Awards: Most Inspired Concept or Theme


One of the best things about progressive music is that the artists go all out in creating deep, meaningful music.  More often than not in our awesome genre, they create album concepts or themes that make the album feel cohesive while speaking to our hearts in incredible ways.  Last year had some great concepts and themes, so here are the top 10 that really spoke to me.
