(n.) A collection of songs written around one central theme or idea. Usually, each individual track expresses a different aspect or part of the main concept, with each track fitting together to form a cohesive idea.

This would not include something like a greatest hits album, with the central theme being best selling songs.
Queens of the Stone Age 2002 release "Songs for the Deaf" is a concept album around the theme of the album being played on the radio, with intro by different made-up DJ's, etc.
