Prog Reviewer
3 stars There is a siginificant similarity between Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall to me. Both albums are considered masterpieces to most people/fans but somehow I have a really different opinion about them. Both albums are granted two stars less by me than the usual of 5 stars. And interesting enough: both albums contain one or two songs of the very highest standard: Money and Time on DSotM and Comfortly Numb on The Wall. And in both cases I have to say I don't really care about the rest of the songs.

The only difference is: I almost dislike the rest of DSotM and in the case of The Wall I think the other tracks are ok but are qualitywise some light-years behind the mentioned masterpiece track. On the other hand I have to admit that tracks like Mother, Hey You and Run like Hell have grown on me through the years and aren't bad at all of course. But for some reason I cannot appreciate the whole album (like many people can) despite its obvious class and significance in pop and prog history. All in all 3 stars for The Wall (3,2).
