This was the last great album by Pink Floyd, and any fan of the band should own a copy , as it displays the band's most remarkable album, and one that contains all the hallmarks that made them great; ethereal, haunting at times, uplifting at others music, lyrical genius, and instrumental work, particularly from Dave Gilmour, that makes the ideas reality.

The Wall was Roger Waters' crowning accomplishment in Pink Floyd.

The Wall was the last croak of vintage Floyd.

The Telegraph
Bold, ambitious, even radical, many consider this ultimate Floyd but Waters double album concept has too many slight songs overburdened by ego and undermined by the obvious disharmony of the participants.

One of the pioneers of the rock opera, this album is a dense, intricate, brutally honest dissection of Roger Waters lifestyle and past, with each following chapter becoming more depressing and powerful. Between guitar licks and pained vocals are layers of vocal clips, atmosphere and noises that create a terrified and fragile world filled with the dark side of drugs, sex, and rock and roll, all while seeming 100% genuine and 500% terrifying. While replays of this album could seem quite daunting, ... read more

"You just don't get how deep The Wall is. It's like, there's this wall around him, and the wall symbolizes a wall."
