5 stars And the five star ratings keep rolling for probably the best band of all time. Am I delusional? I think not....The Wall comfortably continued where Animals started really and it is a wonderful concept double album piece. There is not a track on it that is poor although I do agree with one of the other reviewers on overdosing on ' Comfortably Numb'. The story is now well documented so I will save on that element just to say that if it took 2 years to release the Wall how the hell does it now take Roger Waters 12 years to release a new studio album? That amazes me...The Wall is mainly Waters doing the composing and lyrics, yes he had more control of the band then. I personally have no problem with that as we needed a dark cynical paranoid character to deliver the feel and vibe of the message that needed to be conveyed. Let's admit it Roger Waters is the master of cynicism and had tons of rage too.Sure he made enemies but what did he deliver in return...wonderful albums. The Wall for me is excellent from beginning to end but I will highlight the following songs only because IMO they do standout above the rest,' Mother', ' Goodbye Blue Sky', ' One of my turns', ' Hey You', ' Vera Lynn' " Nobody Home' and the epic dark' Don't leave me now'.Twenty five years ago this album was released, tempus fugit.
