I loved Life In a Tin Can from the first listening, considering it one of their best right away. By the second or 3rd listening is when I heard it as a concept album about a man falsely imprisoned for murder. He escapes and lives as a fugitive "across the USA" and is finally exonerated when the real killer confesses. Since I had never heard or read about anyone else interpreting it that way, I though I may have been reading too much into it. Years later, I read an excerpt from an interview with Maurice Gibb from the time between To Whom It May Concern and Life In a Tin Can, in which he said the next album they were working on (and Tin Can was the next one released) was a concept album.
