5 stars PINK FLOYD's rock-opera The Wall is definitely one of the most artistic and perfect pieces of music ever written. Roger Waters' concept and lyrics are a work of genius, and while this is not as complex musically as many of previous FLOYDian progressive works, the band still manages to maintain the typical atmosphere of their music present here, in a full emotional and meaningfully deep work. The highlights here are of course "Hey You" and "Comfortably Numb", but as with any concept album you must listen to it entirely...and i don't have trouble doing this since i don't consider any of the 20+ songs here barely weak, i have a deep love for each one on their own way, even the unfairly maligned "Young Lust" has a place in my heart, so has the apparently forgotten gems "The Trial" and "Is there anybody out there?", each one is special and beautiful. "The Trial" and "Outside the Wall" mark one of the most epic and beautiful album closers ever done by the band, if you don't feel moved and hipnotized by the people screaming "tear down the wall! tear down the wall!" you really don't understand the point of PF's music. Period.

Essential album, perfect masterpiece and despite not being as prog as many previous FLOYD albums, it still was done to test your emotions like all FLOYD music does: touching your brain and heart at the same time, with intelligent and moving music.

Eclipse | 5/5 |
