A music album that tells a story essentially. A rock opera will have many tracks on it, but they will all follow a storyline. Rock operas arent really "opera" music, but are generally rock. Just about anyone can like them, and the music is generally superb.
The first rock opera ever was Tommy, by The Who. Another great rock opera is The Wall, by Pink FLoyd.
