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”.

    I don't get how anyone can say this is the best Pink Floyd album when the three before it were so brilliant

    What can I say about this album? So glad it popped up today. This is the first Pink Floyd album I ever heard, and I loved the band instantly.

    borgy pretty much summed up my thoughts on this one. Probably the best "rock opera" ever, for my money. It's unfortunate that the band was so splintered at this point, because The Wall and The Final Cut are great albums. Would have been really nice to get another couple of albums out of the classic lineup.

    An album you can listen to a million times but it still punches you in the face and blows you away like it's your first spin each time. The definition of masterpiece.

    This album has the incredible distinction of being incredibly underrated and overrated at the same time. Personally, these days, I quite like it. Still, The Final Cut has a similar concept and beats it in pretty much every way.

    I've come to realize, yes, this is the best album of all time. But it has to be listened to in sequence. As a complete album. A few tracks stand on their own, but in order to fully appreciate it, it needs to be listened to as a full album. Every note matters.

    I hate this album so much. My least favorite PF album. A self-indulgent pile of hipster garbage with zero depth or substance and barely two decent songs. This whole concept should've stayed between Roger and his psychiatrist. Also, the worst movie ever.
