5 stars Masterpiece I'll say without any hesitation. Not even second. This album (and also movie) is simply so deep rooted in my heart that it's as a part of my life. A Clockwork Orange, Nineteen Eighty-Four and The Wall, limits of human imagination as far as I can remember. Of course, now I know even more "strong" stuff, but let's stick with bricky barrier, shall we ?

The wall is extraordinary in its suggestive force. It can really brings you into the story and you can feel with main hero, Pink. I studied for a long time lyrics, materials about it, images, various analyses, tried to listen to both CD's many times, to separate songs, asked many people about i t. Including my father, who introduced me into this. This is psychedelic, but as a psyche dream, where you want to wake up, but fate won't let you. Dices are cast and there's no escape. After let's say hundreds of listen (is it enough ? it never will be enough for this), I'm still not sure about everything, all these double/tripe/multiple meanings hidden in it. And my father (47), who spend a lot of time thinking about it feels similar about it. It simply is difficult album. Even I'm sure not everyone will feel good about it, this won't let you go. It's too strong. And if you know the story, at least basics (but the more the better), it helps a lot to understand it all. So where's this big deal ? It's so truth, that's it. You know that these things (even magnified) happened, even to lesser degrees, or worse - it can happen. It's sinister pointing finger raised up and warning us about this.

5(+), the best of them all.
