The Wall

     BOYCOTT THIS BAND. ROGER WATERS AND NICK MASONS ARE ANTI-SEMITE

     BOYCOTT THIS BAND. ROGER WATERS AND NICK MASONS ARE ANTI-SEMITES WHO ARE BOYCOTTING ISRAEL. FIGHT BIGOTRY.
    Anyone who sides with Waters and Mason should go live in a Muslim country like Afghanistan or even the Palestinian territories - the darling of Waters' - where Christians are being murdered and churches burned. And Mr. Waters should lead the way. Join the Boyles in Afghanistan, prisoners since they were arrested for the crime of hiking in Afghanistan.

    This is a terrible album

    Now, at first, I was looking forward to listening to this album. I mean, look at the cover art! But as soon as I started, I knew this was a waste. This is a total peice of junk. Every courus is predictable. Don't waste you'r money.
