About this album

The Wall is a rock opera presented as a double album by the English progressive rock band Pink Floyd, released on November 30th, 1979. It was subsequently performed live, with elaborate theatrical effects, and made into a film.

Following in the footsteps of their previous albums, The Wall is a concept album — specifically, it deals largely with the theme of isolation from one’s peers. The concept was largely inspired by the band’s 1977 tour promoting the album Animals, with regards to an incident where Roger Waters’ frustration with the audience reached a point where Waters spat in the face of a fan who was attempting to climb on stage; this, in turn, led him to lament that such a wall exists. With its significantly darker theme, The Wall featured a notably harsher and more theatrical sound than their previous releases.

The Wall is a rock opera that centres on the character “Pink”. Largely based on Waters’ personal life, Pink struggles in life from an early age, having lost his father in war (“Another Brick in the Wall (Part 1)”), abused by teachers (“The Happiest Days of Our Lives”), nurtured by an overprotective mother (“Mother”), and deserted by his wife later on (“Don’t Leave Me Now”) — all of which factored into Pink’s mental isolation from society, figuratively referred to as “The Wall”.

    Not everybody will agree when I suggest this album to be the best work of music ever created. But those who understand the story behind this album and recognize it in their own life can understand me. Pink Floyd made it to express the sorrow of a person who experienced such a life. Yes, some songs are a little bit week, but no artist is perfect. At the end it becomes quite paranoid, but that's just amazing.

    GREAT ALBUM, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, but just a little bit overrated. DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is much better even MEDDLE sounds better.

    Pink Floyd has never, NEVER created a bad album, or even disappointing. This album is tremendous! Cannot be complimented enough. Musically and lyrically has inspired so many artists. This is not my favourite PF album comparing to my taste, yet this album makes me want to die it's so good.

    This is one case in which listening to it out of sequence is a mortal sin. Sides are fine.

    Returning to that album after a lot of post-punk/new wave stuff is a strange and wonderful feeling.
