I personally think it is, despite Paul saying it’s not. I wouldn’t say an album has to have a story like Tommy or The Wall to be a concept album. If it did it would be called a story album. Paul came up with the concept (the band taking alter egos as the club band) and the band recorded the album with this in mind so yes, it is a concept album. 

What do you all think?


It is both a concept album and not a concept album. 

Why it is: The reason you stated.

Why it isn’t: They dropped the concept partway in and started writing random songs that didn’t fit the concept.
