5 stars To me The Wall is Pink Floyd's 2nd best, after Dark Side. The Reason I put this above WYWH, and Animals is this was my first album and has the first Floyd song I ever heard. This is a story that surrounds Roger Waters' life. The main character Pink looses his father from WW2, goes to school to be torchered by his teachers, is controled by his mother and so on. Of corse to most the best song here is "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" it is a very good song, but I do not think it is by far the best. I would have to say the best songs are C. Numb, Hey You, and Run Like Hell or Mother. This is the perfect definition of the words rock opera. There are characters, and many opera-like elements. The next best thing to this album is the tour that followed. With the giant wall being built across the stage, the projections, and David Gilmour singing Comfortably Numb, and playing the memorable solo at the top of the wall. There are some songs on the album that I did not mention but other greats like In the Flesh, Young Lust, One of my Turns, Nobody Home, Is There Anybody Out There, Waiting for the Worms, and The Trial. The album is not made of longer pieces like the last two albums, instead there are shorter songs that are still great like Empty Spaces, Goodbye Blue Sky, ABITW, Pt. 3, and Vera. The Wall movie is another great chapter in the history of the wall. But for me one of the best things about this album is, I got to see Roger Waters perform it in 2010 at Atlanta, Georgia. I would definitly recommend this album to anyone who has never listened to it before, I don't see how you could be dissapointed.
