5 stars The Wall is most certainly more of a Waters solo album than a full-fledged Pink Floyd album. Some detractors claim it moves away from the Pink Floyd sound. I disagree completely. Up until this album, no two Floyd albums sounded alike anyway. The Wall is just an explosion of creativity in writing, recording and use of background voices and sounds that all combine to create one big amazing journey that few albums can rival. Every nook and cranny on this album takes you through the twisted, demented, sad and destructive mind of the main character. Brick by brick his madness builds up until his mind is overrun by his own imagination of the real and fake characters of his life all confined within the Wall that separates him from reality.. The influence of this album cannot be understated. Where would Dream Theater, Queensryche and Anathema be without Pink Floyd? Especially The Wall? You hear the influence of this album to this day.

A complete triumph of originality and creativity.
