Top 10 Rock Concept Albums of the Past 10 Years #8

#8: Catch Without Arms (2005) by Dredg: The band already had two concept albums when they released Catch Without Arms, and although those albums had more concrete storylines, this release truly showed the bands musicianship and creativity. The band intended the album to consist of two groups of songs that argued against each other; more or less polar opposites. Also well-known for their artwork, created by bassist Drew Roulette and singer Gavin Hayes, the pair created an abstract painting for each song, which featured elements of the meaning behind the song. Album highlights: “Bug Eyes” and “Ode to the Sun.”
