3 stars Overrated disappointment.

The Wall is one of Pink Floyd's most recognisable albums, probably second behind Dark Side of the Moon. However, to any fan of their more progressive work it's hard not to attribute this to the radio friendliness and accessibility of a lot of the tracks.

In the Wall Floyd have followed up their progressive rock opus Animals - which contains 3 10+ minute tracks of the finest spaced out, nuanced prog/psych rock ever comitted to tape - with what is essentially their take on guitar-centric rock. It's no surprise that this departure in style marked the beginning of a rapid downward spiral in musical quality which probably wasn't helped one bit by the much publicised drama and animosity between the band members.

Having fully explored the bands discography I haven't ever found myself coming back to listen to the wall, it's a fairly unwieldy and awkward album that lacks much of what made their previous work so special.
