3 stars Sincerely I can't understand why so many people rank this album so high in a progressive rock site. Of course I respect all the opinions, but I think that in this case the theatrical and dramatic side of this production is mixing with the progressiveness. Except for the concept, wich is great and is the specialty of Roger Waters, I can't find progressive ingredients in the music. At this time the Pink Floyd music was assaulted by the Roger Waters mega ego, and that's domines everything in The Wall. Thank's God, Gilmour could put some tunes there and the best things became from his collaboration, as Comfortably numb and Run like hell. Of course exists some other good tracks composed by Roger, as In the flesh (a great heavy track but too short), Mother, Another brick part 1, Hey you, and some other ones. But all this tracks has nothing to do with the progressive rock, except some little things like Bring the boys back home, which uses some chorus and orchestra, but in a too short package. In a general music site, I could give 4 stars to this album, but here I can't give it more than three. In a progressive rock context The Wall is good but not essential.
