I love concept albums, my favourite thing to do is to listen to an entire album all the way through rather than shuffling through my library. Here's a few of my favs, Im sure most people wont enjoy what I like but feel free to share your favourite concept albums.

Cloudkicker - Let Yourself Be Huge (ambient, progressive.rock, instrumental, post.rock)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KgCRnXP_k0&feature=bf_prev&list=PL41A9A24CA08A1513

Amogh Symphony - The Quantum Hack Code (alternative, experimental, jazz, metal, rock, fusion)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcNwryUaibY&feature=bf_prev&list=PL1B1E77F4494561B1

Meshuggah - Catch 33 (metal, progressive.metal, math.metal, djent)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ht7kTC7_SjM

Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect (experimental, metal, progressive.metal, metalcore)
I would choose the album Colors but it's not lyrically a concept album :(
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hg8gvWFLgtY

I tried using the "youtube" code or whatever but it bugged the fuck out

COLORS. Seriously if you're into metal at all and haven't listened to this album, it's almost mandatory you do. It's incredible.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-OagFHpYYs

The Parallax albums are cool and I'm pretty sure are "lyrically" concept albums.

Most of the Coheed albums too, if you're down with Claudio's singing.

And if you're into REALLY cheesy prog concept albums Ayreon is a safe bet.

Did you get a chance to listen to the new Coheed album? I havent listened to all of their stuff yet but I enjoyed the new one the most.

Yeah I actually just got my hands on it today. It's awesome, definitely their best work in a decent while. I'm really excited to hear what Descension will be like.

Im looking forward to it as well, generally Coheed is hit or miss for me, but Ascension is really solid.

I guess off the top of my head, these are some of my favorite concept albums:

Frank Zappa - Joe's Garage
World's End Girlfriend - SEVEN IDIOTS
The Antlers - Hospice (I know this one is kind of love it or hate it but I always find myself going back to it)
Electric Light Orchestra - Time
The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs

Godspeed you! Black Emperor - F♯ A♯ ∞

I wonder if a purely electronic album could be considered a concept album, hmm

Disillusion - Back To Times of Splendor

Everything in this topic is win. So much win. Never heard of Cloudkicker, but I'm gonna check them out. I LOVE concept albums and I feel like I've failed whenever I don't listen to one all the way through. Dream Theater's Scenes From a Memory is the concept album of all concept albums in my opinion. You could make a freakin movie out of it.

PUFFBTBAM, Dream Theater, Tool (maybe concept?), Coheed

Pick your album!

Lateralus is amazing, and if you've never heard of this before check out this rearranged fan made concept version of Lateralus, it gives off a completely different vibe and story compared to the original, I actually prefer the fan made version. Read the video description for more info on it.
