Do the readers of this forum know any music, or albums influenced directly by the tarot? I can think of only two albums, viz.:

1) In the Region of the Summer Stars by The Enid (1976) - a splendid album by an altogether underrated and unknown band;

2) Voyage of the Acolyte by Steve Hackett (1975) - a wonderful concept album by the famed Genesis guitarist.

These are both beautiful pieces of work, but I'm sure there's more out there. Any ideas and suggestions?

What all 78 cards?

 

Yep that sounds like it'd be some sort of prog-rock nightmare if it was all 78 cards.  

 

Artists who have used the Tarot (well, referenced one of the ATU) i can think of are Zeppelin, Dylan and perhaps Neubauten.  Maybe Black Flag also.

Are you looking for full works based on the Arcana or just influence/mentioning?

The Waterboys allude to The Fool in Further Up, Further In.

Iron Maiden mentions the Tarot in Judgement of Heaven.
