Pink Floyd 2011 Remasters
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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

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.Read more ›
Other standout tracks include:
Comfortably Numb - This song sends shivers up my spine every single time I hear it. If you enjoyed "On the turning away" (from their Momentary Lapse of Reason album) you will love this, they have a similar feel to them.
Run Like Hell - the introduction to this is simply brilliant.
Released in 1979, it was ahead of its time then. Re-released in 1999 as a new digital remaster, it should have stated on the sticker "20 Year Anniversary" but got a "30 Year Anniversary" sticker by mistake. A small detail. The new digital remaster is worth owning.

Looks good but I have doubt about the quality... few songs make weird noises... no big deal but noticeable for a Pink Floyd fan.Published 21 days ago by Hector
The wall is a 2cd set, I received only one. The jewel case broke apart opening it. I got half the order for the full price. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jim Bonk
there seemed to be a few very small "spots" on the CD's which would make me think they were not new like they were listed as. Read morePublished 7 months ago by CE
