Best question ever. But seriously, And All That Could Have Been is a BAMFtastic album.
I guess I just don't get it. Yeah, concept albums are everywhere, but who are we to say what someone should or shouldn't write about? If the story is personal and the artist feels like sharing, I say right on. There's definitely a level of pretension in metal, but hell, there's pretension in every single form of media. I think alot of people, like Devin, write concept albums knowing how cheesy and ridiculous they are. Maybe I'm missing a larger point or something.
