5 stars This album came out within a couple weeks of London Calling. I got them both, my senior year of high school, and if I only knew how great, timeless and important they'd both be to me over the years, I'd have treated them with more respect back then. Unlike London Calling. I did get enjoy this album from the get go. Yet, similar to London Calling, its really taken me years to really appreciate it. Back then I'd play sides 1 and 3 and seldom played it all the way through, and hated most of side 4.

I've never used to consider myself a big Pink Floyd fan, even though I had most of their stuff from the 60s/70s. But in the past few years, as I've been re-mining and re-evaluating everything from the 60s and 70s with different ears and mindset, I do consider PF to be one of the greatest bands of the 70s. With several classics under their belt. Gilmour is the best singer in the band, yet Waters sings most of the tunes on The Wall. But the thing is, The Wall is a masterpiece of production and Prog's greatest swan song. I really don't care about the lyrics or story line, but the music and execution of Waters' vision is pure brilliance, and his voice better suited for most of these tunes.

This album is an easy listen for me. It never used to be. As much as I love Dark Side of the Moon, possibly Prog's greatest album, I find listening to it to not be as "easy of a listen" as The Wall. After 30 years, I'm a little "burnt" on Dark Side, but never seem to burn on the Wall.
