A really great CD for any collection3/12/2007
Back in 1979 Pink Floyd released this Album and had two shows in the United States to promote it. One was in New York City and the other show was in Los Angeles. Both shows sold out with in minutes. I bought this album when they were still albums. I owned a cassette player and I wanted to transfer this to cassette tape, the current “other” media since the 8-track tapes were on their way out. I had been a Pink Floyd fan since the mid 70’s so I was a follower. To copy this onto cassette, I had a friend do it for me but he didn’t know who Pink Floyd was or hadn’t ever listened to them prior. He copied it and gave me back the album and the cassettes and told me that he now liked Pink Floyd. Any review can make someone think one way or the other but you really have to be your own judge when it comes to this kind of music. It is true, you really do get what you pay for.
Anybody still out there?9/1/2004
Take a psychotic Sigmund Freud, a cannabalistic Carl Jung, and throw in a bunch of twisted nightmares. What does that concoction yield? Pink Floyd's masterpiece The Wall. Still considered one of the best rock albums to date (right next to Led Zeppelin and The Rolling stones), it is a timeless work of gargantuan proportions. There will never be a rock group that will EVER replicate the sonic thunder, and subtle attacks on the psyche that "The Wall" continues to propogate even today. Truly, one of the best albums of all-time, and, one of the best rock groups that came from jolly old England. I give it a 10-plus.
Excellent...but not their best5/4/2003
Great album! One of, but not their best however. I've read that Roger Waters was the only band member that wanted to record this, so the other 3 memebers weren't that "into" it. David Gilmour does call his guitar solo during "Comfortably Numb" the "greatest piece of music I've ever written,". A must have album for any Pink Floyd fan...I just wouldn't make it my first. Go for "Dark Side of the Moon" or "Wish You Were Here".
The Most Relaxing, Mood Changing Album Ever4/21/2002
I have found that with this album that a persons whole atttude can change as you listen to it.. I have come in from a really bad day at work, thrown in this album an in a matter of minutes my Mood has changed to a more relaxed one. Roger Waters is one of the greatest song writers of our time. I think if he had been around during the Mozart Era he would surely have been right up there with him. I recommend this album to one and all. Then take it home and put it in your CD player, fill your tub with bath oils and your favorite Lady or Man and just kick back and enjoy the experience.
