5 stars The first time I listened to this double-album my opinion was very close to 'crap': too many short songs, no long tracks with floods of keyboards, no long soloing and I couldn't understand the whole idea behind this album, far too dark and vague. But after a few sessions (most of my prog rock friends were very enthusiastic about the album and played it on and on) my opinion turned 180 degrees and I became a hugh fan of the album because of the splendid combination of the lyrics, the music and the visuals (from Gerarld Scarfe, sharp as a razor blade). Enjoy the alternating climates, wonderful coloured by the musicians, from the almost tear jerking "Mother" to the aggressive "Young Lust", from the bombastic "Vera" to the moving "Hey You" (one of the best guitar soli in the prog rock history) and from the maniacal "One Of My Turns" to the disco-like "Run Like Hell". For me "The Wall" is a masterpiece that never bores, keep that in mind Mr. Collins!
