5 stars All the bands have one like this, not to that it must, but the same phenomenon in all the bands is seen good or in which they have wanted to make transcendental and fastuosos works, there are exceptions as KING CRIMSON ("Space Groove" does not consider a conceptual one) or GENTLE GIANT for example, each band or of very special way or simply like a chance have created to which I have had the audacity to call the conceptual ones in people that they look for, find or show, the fact is that there are many similar things, for example GENESIS "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway", YES "Such of Topographic Oceans ", MARILLION" Misplaced Childhood ", etc., I name these single to mention some examples, clear this that PINK FLOYD does not make reality the project of Roger WATERS since David GILMOUR this very in agreement with the concept and this is not modified slightly, either agreed in" Animals "in the vision of Roger WATERS of the people, but who it would be in agreement with it WATERS ideas I I would say that nobody so that every one has own ideas, as well as the discs that previously mention also the ideas and concepts in them, making reference at the low level that I had to appreciate this disc in first the listening, but in truth is very complex to understand truely disc like this, since it has very many details, the understanding of the connections and the notion of the space time, I believe that many people entirely do not understand this disc, not by less to appraise appreciation of same people, but not is simple to listen disc of almost 80 minutes, is more within same style that is great difference between to understand and to appreciate, because many magnificentes people do not understand them work like this, that would be due to listen completely and with an opened mind, there am here the problem of the present time in where she says herself not to have time and to waste it in banal things that even demand more time, but clear this that for that reason we existed the people who we have that quality that is very strange but necessary to appreciate this style of music, I do not include/understand as to somebody it can give laziness him to listen to a subject of more than one hour without at least trying it, is necessary to occur time to try, like is possible that in the past the patience had to listen You operate of up to 5 hours and now 80 minutes defeat to us, will say that there were interludios, because here also there is it, so pretexts only the one of not wanting. "The Wall" is the concept of Roger WATERS, in which without a doubt some I mix myself with the ideas of the other members to make a music piece excelsa, that they are had made hundreds of landmarks of this disc, in where the WATERS traumas of and obtained affluent interpretation of their companions visualize, the concept is basic, "The Wall" was conceived mainly (the concept and most of the subjects) by Roger WATERS. Through his songs it relates the life of a rock star from his childhood. Each one of the songs goes interconnected with the following one, giving a argumental thread to all the disc, a complete history. It contains songs with a high dose of social critic: to the educative system, the war, the institutions in general. In addition, it treats subjects like the maternal sobreprotection, the sentimental failure or madness, great subjects of general knowledge, in where there is of everything, from instrumental passages, atmospheric creations, subjects of great beauty, everything a repertoire of good music. It is a concept very interpreted in different forms, since after to have recorded in the study in where by the technological limitations it did not fit completely, later the live interpretation, with a magnificent production that I cause rage by the emotional reaches throughout the world and the original concept, during the concert constructed a wall between I publish and the band, with giant marionettes, lights and everything what it could does at that time, after the presentations the film came, and later that knows more that, is certain is an art piece, but included/understood or only fanatically appreciated.
