I really see no difference between a concept album and a rock opera, if a concept album can be an album that tells a story, where every song relates to said story.
Beyond Hell is definetely a rock opera.

Concept Album- an album that is "unified by a theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, narrative, or lyrical.

Rock Opera- a work of rock music that presents a storyline told over multiple parts, songs or sections in the manner of opera.

So how is Seventh Son not a rock opera by that definition?

'The Human Equation' (Ayreon) is a rock opera. 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son' is not.
Exactly.

Dark Side of the Moon/The Wall - Pink Floyd
Leviathan - Mastodon
Colors - Between The Buried And Me

I dont care about the difference between rock opera and concept album, since a rock opera is a concpet album by definition anyway as its an album of music unified by a commn theme, being a narrative. Thusly, these are my current favorite concept albums.
