Product Description

The Wall is less a collection of songs than a single work, which is sometimes frustrating; the plot lacks enough coherence to hold the snippets of music together. However, there are occasional flashes of brilliance on what ranks as Pink Floyd's most ambitious project. Most of these come from the fully developed songs, which have become classics in their own right. "Hey You," "Mother," and especially "Comfortably Numb" are subtle, incredible pieces of music. Though complex, they move at a relaxed pace, allowing the listener to absorb them slowly; this kind of pacing was something Pink Floyd excelled at. Also worth noting is the "Another Brick in the Wall/The Happiest Days of Our Lives" medley, which has become a staple of rock radio. --Genevieve Williams. Digitally remastered 1994.

I've got to say, this is my faveorite post-60's work by Pink Floyd. I'm not a fan of Dark Side of the Moon, I feel that is a very stale and drawn out album. Usually I'm not a fan of these "Rock Operas" or "Concept Albums", and I don't listen to this for the story. But the way it is weaved together, along with the story itsself (seeing the movie might help) and the music, makes this a superb effort. It begins with the end of the very last track on the album, and unexpectedley blasts into "In the Flesh?". In the film, the scenes of war really emphasize this music. The verses in this song are astounding. We then go into some standards, the "Another Brick in the Wall" tracks which I'm not a big fan of, and eventually towards the end of the album.

I've read reviews that said the first disc could be marketed as an album on its own, but not the 2nd one. I've got to disagree. Personally, I perfer the 2nd disc (although the whole Facist thing doesn't seem to come from or go anywhere, and "Run Like Hell" is a really terrible song). But the first half of the second disc, as well as the closing, is really incredible. "Hey You" is, of course, a classic rock radio staple, and we all know it. "Is Anybody Out there?" is a nice classical guitar piece, nothing special. But here we get into one of the best lineups of songs every put on album, from "Nobody Home" to "In the Flesh". "Nobody Home" is just incredible, in my opinion the best song Roger Waters has ever written. "Vera" is similarily beutiful. "Bring The Boys back Home" really has this manic, fevered, climactic feel; for all of this theatrical drama going on in the disturbed emotions of one man is really felt with this song (A note: I tend to get extremely involved with what I listen to or read). "Comfortably Numb" is, of course, Comfortably Numb.

This is so excellent and coherent, it almost hurts. So good.

If you are already familiar with the beauty and genius that is Pink Floyd, why not add this masterpiece to your collection?

Also, newcomers alike. Don't be afraid, this is the way to go, a wonderful place to start your Pink Floyd -journey. (That's how I started, and haven't looked back since..)

Although this is a rock-opera, hence tells a story and is a concept-album like many other Pink Floyd -albums, that doesn't mean you can't remove the songs out of the context.

Though I strongly recommend you to listen to this through several times, to get the story straight and to be amazed by the aching beauty of this work. But do feel free jump to your favourites after that, if you want to.

I do so, but I also listen to the whole album from time to time.

This is one of my all-time favourites!

My highlights include: Comfortably Numb, Hey You, Goodbye Blue Sky, Another Brick In The Wall ( all three parts, but especially part I), Thin Thin Ice and Young Lust.

Oh, did I already say, that this is ReCoMMenDeD... :oD ( Very warmly and highly)

Roger Waters constructed The Wall, a narcissistic, double-album rock opera about an emotionally crippled rock star who spits on an audience member daring to cheer during an acoustic song. Given its origins, it's little wonder that The Wall paints such an unsympathetic portrait of the rock star, cleverly named "Pink," who blames everyone - particularly women - for his neuroses. Such lyrical and thematic shortcomings may have been forgivable if the album had a killer batch of songs, but Waters took his operatic inclinations to heart, constructing the album as a series of fragments that are held together by larger numbers like "Comfortably Numb" and "Hey You." Generally, the fully developed songs are among the finest of Pink Floyd's later work, but The Wall is primarily a triumph of production: Its seamless surface, blending melodic fragments and sound effects, makes the musical shortcomings and questionable lyrics easy to ignore. But if The Wall is examined in depth, it falls apart, since it doesn't offer enough great songs to support its ambition, and its self-serving message and shiny production seem like relics of the late-'70s Me Generation. very polarized stuff. brilliant songs standing beside mediocraties.

With songs like "In the flesh?", "Run Like Hell," and "Another Brick In The Wall pt.2," The Wall just might be Floyd's darkest, hardest album. The lyrics certainly reflect that, telling the story of a disturbed young man whose life becomes so chaotic that he creates a sort of mental barrier between himself and the world, only to have it torn down, "exposing him in front of his peers," as the second to last song suggests. Throughout his life, our flawed protagonest deals with the death of his father, vicious teachers, an overbearing mother, the pain of growing up in a harsh world full of war and pain. He has a chaotic marriage ("Day after day, love turns gray..."). He becomes a drug-addicted rock star, and loses all of his privacy to the media and to fans. In the end all of demons come back to confront him in the absolutely stunning climatic song "The Trial." The story is dark, engrossing, and symbolic of our lives, and the trouble we go to in order to seperate ourselves from others. Wall could have made an excellent novel, if you ask me.
But above and beyond the story is the music in which it is contained. While Dark Side Of The Moon featured longer, slower songs which unfolded slowly and bled into one another, the songs on Wall are shorter and louder, more hard rock than progressive. "Young Lust," for example, is a fast paced flat out rocker reminescent of Physical Grafitti era Led Zeppelin. It's driven by a tough as nails guitar riff, a pounding bass line, and an instantly memorable chorus ("oooooooooooh.... I need a dirty woman!")
The album's oppener, "In The Flesh?," is a darkly cynical number that is a bit slower than most of The Wall's songs.
