5 stars The idea of becoming emotionally trapped by our own delusions and fears is something many people can identify with. This album's concept turns out to be quite a story and musically every track is vital to fit the record together.

The Wall is perfectly spaced, with lots of classic moments. "Another Brick in the Wall", "Mother", "Goodbye Blue Sky", Hey You", "Is There Anybody Out There" and "Comfortably Numb" are among some of the finest and most beautifully written pieces in rock history and alone make this worth owning. Surely there is no doubt that it's fantastic.

As I said, the story is fascinating. For me personally, this record has got better and better over time. I even love the darker parts which mostly occupy the end of the first half, especially "Don't Leave Me Now" and "One of my Turns". They are possibly some of the most twisted pieces of music I've ever heard. Other favourite moments are "Nobody Home", "Vera Lynne" and "Bring The Boys Back Home"

Whatever reviewers might think or say about Roger Waters' and his ego, it doesn't change the fact that he was, and is, a genius. Most of the work here was his output and it has inspired millions. His type of creative vision is one-of-a-kind. The music is timeless too and still sounds incredibly fresh over thirty years later. This is one of my top six Pink Floyd albums and it's a courageous work of art. Enough said, you simply must own it! 5 stars.
