The Real Congregation :: Conceptual Continuity (Part One) :: 04/10/12
Last week, Cap kidnapped Marc With a C and took over The Real Congregation. After much begging and pleading for mercy and water, Cap eventually agreed to set Marc free – at a price. The cost? Marc had to do a two-part episode dedicated to both of their favorite concept albums. While Marc silently thought to himself “geez, all he had to do was ask”, he went along with it anyways, psyched to not only have the next two episodes covered, but also for his soon to be realized freedom.
So, let’s get chronological and analyze the history of concept albums, shall we?
