Marco da música progressiva e da banda. E ainda hoje, no Brasil, o conceito não foi compreendido.

There are only two 'concept' albums that really work, this one and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

This is the Masterpiece of Pink Floyd, Surely. And a Masterpiece of Music of all times. It's perfect conceptually, musically, so hard to superate. The twenty´s century Masterpiece.

Most Pink Floyd purests will rank this album lower. I love Floyd but I feel at at the end of the day your opinion of this release is subject to personal interpretation. I'm drawn to this album because of what I get out of the story. Alienation. The main character raised with no Father, protected from the world by his mother, compounded by fame. An increasing separation from society and reality by chemicals, a childhood and social status. Each experience another brick added to the wall of alienation. Brilliant. Waters vocals at their best capturing the tourment of the character, and Gilmours guitar tone creating the mood and ambiance!

I admit i once thought this was as great as this site rates It, but nowadays I don't see the appeal in it anymore, despite It being an above-average record, with some of Pink Floyd's best songs like "Hey You" and "Comfortably Numb". I can't give It a high rating, because I simply don't enjoy listening to It that much anymore.

To me, an easy contender for greatest album of all time. No album better conveys the emotions and imagery they're aiming for than this one, it's executed with perfection. Truly truly masterful creation. 10/10

From mjp11 07/10/2018 16:48
The end of Pink Floyd's peak era. The Wall is one of those albums that needs to be listened to from beginning to end to really appreciate it. It has a lot of great songs that can be enjoyed on their own (Another Brink pt. 2, Hey You, Comfortably Numb, etc.) but there are also a lot of songs that don't work without the context of the rest of the album. This album is really about telling a story. It's a story of fame and isolation, of how society can warp us into monsters if we're not careful. Roger Waters might've felt like Pink Floyd's popularity was turning him into a monster (a monster that basically destroyed the band) but there's no denying that he made one hell of an album out of those feelings.
