Nice packaging.

I have the original CD and compared it with this one. Try as I would I could not detect any difference whatsoever between the two. If anything there might be a bit more brilliance and bite to the original. I can't be sure.

I am not here to debate the quality of the album itslef, that goes without saying. Every music lover Must have a copy of this album in their collection. But as far as the sound quality of the remastered LP... I was a bit disapointed. I'm always cautious about buying a remastered version of an album, but I could not find the reviews I was looking for with this version. Frankly the 25 year old copy I have sounds as good, if not better, even with it's pop's and hisses. Amazon's return policy was used by me in this purchase.

I must admitt The Wall does have some(notice the word some) good songs such as Another Brick In The Wall parts 1-3 and Comfortably numb. But there are some very dark themes and racist themes such as in "Waiting for the Worms" & "In the Flesh!" which has anti-semetisim, and racist and other very derogatory remarks. This was mainly a Roger Waters album, it doesn't sound like Pink Floyd. I am a very big fan of the Floyd and I depise this album. If you want a good album go for either The Division Bell or Dark Side of the Moon.

I'm SO sick of people telling me how great this album is. This album is the beginning of the final stage of pf with roger waters as lead songwriter. The loss of roger's father eric "fletcher" waters during WW2 combined with the schizophrenic tendencies of pink floyds previous songwriter syd barrett makes up the plot for the wall. Basicly a story of an individual who loses his father at a young age and slowly slips into very heavy mental health issues. A young man named "pink" (taken from an early pink floyd being asked "which one of you is pink?") is a young rock star pressured by fame, the death of his father and supposed schizophrenia to isolate himself from people. The story of his life and tribulations is the album. Written entirely by roger waters and later made into a movie is one of the most sucessful pf albums of them all. Very boring and a definite cry for help. "the wall" makes me fall asleep. Lacking the brain bending genius of dark side of the moon. The wall has nothing to offer from the pf of the past besides sound fx. For those of you who mistake this album for physicologic geinus. Re-think and realize this album is boring for pink floyd.......

I consider myself to be a fairly large Pink Floyd fan. But, odd as it may seem, this album is one that I heard after all of the others.
Like the title of my review indicates, I hold that this album has only a few redeeming qualities. While songs such as "Another Brick in the Wall, Part II" and "Hey You" would obviously be qualified as redeeming qualites, it possesses a few others. Mother and Comfortably Numb are both enjoyable songs, as well as the short Vera, which, I personally would prefer to be a little, if not alot, longer.
I give it two stars because it is not anything like the musical genious portrayed in Dark Side of the Moon and a few of their other albums. I would not go as far as to reccommend this album to anyone.

I like Pink Floyd. I once owned several PF vinyl LPs, back in the day. But when I heard this slab of gloom I just could not handle it. This is the most dark and depressing music that PF have ever released, and this is from a band that made a career of darkness and depression. So you can imagine just how bad this is.
Musically, it's brilliant, but the lyrics and theme drag it all down into an abyss. Then the band released the movie and added depressing images to the music. I actually sat through The Wall movie in a theater and I felt like committing suicide when I left.
I hope Roger Waters sought professional help after recording this.

Roger Waters needs a life. Desperately! Yeah, this Wagnerian-style epic of how far you can crawl up your own backside was once a "gosh-wow" listen, I admit. Listening to it now reminds me of the downside of believing in your own purity and railing about how the callous world outside JUST DOESN'T UNDERSTAND. It's an attractive myth when you're in your twenties--if it hasn't been relegated to a nostalgic look-backwards by the time you've hit your forties, get professional help before it's too late! Given an extra star for the great sound effects

Dozens of reviewers have praised this album for being 'one of the greatest' rock albums, or any type of album ever. So many people think Pink Floyd is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO clever with their 'Wall' album and messages. I personally do not like people who think they are clever, or people who think other people are clever. I agree with anyone who thinks this album does not serve any good purpose. People who think this album is indespensible or 'the best ever' are probably saying that because they can't distinguish between good and bad.

1 great song (Comfortably Numb) and 1 okay song (Another brick in the Wall. I imagine the rest was written during a stay at an insane asylum. Too weird, too annoying. I've been told its great to listen to stoned, unfortunately i'd rather not have to have my senses impaired to enjoy music. You want great Pink Floyd, stick with Dark Side of the Moon or Wish You Were Here.
