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”.

    Wow, people talking shit about THE WALL? This is one of the most iconic records in rock music history and the movie is great! The album may be a bit too melodramatic to take completely seriously if you first hear it after a certain age (it's much more identifiable for teens and college aged people, I think) rather than hearing it early on in your music development and forming a lasting bond with it. Since I first got it when I was like 15 or 16 and have listened to it ever since, I've never fallen out of love with it and it's never released its hold on me. Whatever you think of the lyrics/story, though, the songs are what makes the album and the songs are great. It's also a brilliantly produced LP.

    The worst Floyd album and the worst movie I've ever seen.

    It should've been called "Roger Waters' Megalomaniac Midlife Crisis: The Album."

    Their best for sure. And the best album of all time, in my opinion.

    I think Pink Floyd exhausted most of their creative energy with this album, and that makes it their last good album, imo.

    Can anyone remove '(1994 Digital Remaster)' tags? Just a waste for listeners stats. (3)
