the wonders of the wall

the wall is the best album out there. It is a look into the despairs of post WWII Europe and the wall Roger Waters wished to put up around the fans that loved him, giving a deeper reflection into the mind of the genius, Roger Waters. Music and lyrics blend together to paint an incredible picture worth millions of words. It is no doubt a requirement for any aspiring musician, but also for anyone with any sort of music appreciation. It is the greatest concept album of all time

Decent Album

The Wall is one of the most famous albums that Pink Floyd has made, but it's definitely not the best. 50% of it is just filler, and then 25% of the regular songs aren't that great. It does have it's moments though. Comfortably Numb has an amazing guitar solo, Hey You is...

It does have it's moments though. Comfortably Numb has an amazing guitar solo, Hey You is my favorite song on the album, Mother is a nice acoustic song, and In the Flesh? has a sweet beat. If you're new to Pink Floyd, stay away from this album. This was the first album by PF I bought, and I thought that THIS was good. Go get Animals or Wish You Were instead...but if you're big on Pink Floyd and don't have this (which is very unlikely), go get it.

    An unfortunate failure by a great band

    Representing the end of Floyd's Roger Watters era, this album is a hugely ambitious, hugely egotistical rock opera. Watters's ambitons do not translate well into a coherent album, and The Wall falls well short of other Floyd efforts. A few noteworthy tracks (Another Brick in the Wall part 2, Comfortably Numb)helped to make the album a hit, but I felt that the album was lacking something that was always present in Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. This album also marks a departure from the ''normal'' Pink Floyd sound. The album contains far more lyrical material than any previous album, and the psycadellic freak-outs are nearly absent. ''Comfortably Numb'' is the only song that seems ''Floydian'' in sound. Certainly worth the money for a die-hard Floyd fan, but not for a casual observer. I do enjoy this album, and I listen to it frequently, but the quality is much lower than other Floyd works.

    Better than nothing

    I recently bought this to replace my cassette version that was very tired. The songs are all there, but much of the fire that drove the original is gone. Several of the voice parts are overplayed. The parts that gave me that shiver- don't. The deep welling bass on many parts is gone - just for example. It's as though they went in and actually re-sang the whole thing, just sang the words, but didn't feel it. My daughter thought I was just being dramatic until I played portions of my cassette, then the cd. She clearly saw the difference. I have never been satisfied with any remastered music I've purchased, but on such a piece as this, I thought surely they'd do it up right. I don't know how it's done, but I've often thought that the remaster people never even listen to the original. Why would they think we want something different this time around? As I headlined- it's better than nothing- sadly.
