4 stars The thing with The Wall is that it goes two ways. It absolutely must be in every prog lover's collection, because, I mean, it's The Wall, for crying out loud. It's a staple of rock music as a whole. However, it is not a masterpiece. The concept behind it is one of the best concepts for an album ever, and the music is exceptional. Waters does an incredible job at telling a story through music. Although it is a must-own, 5 stars is too high for it. Here, I won't go song by song, as I usually do, because 26 songs is a lot to go through. However, the standouts are: In The Flesh?: A legendary album opener. Another Brick in the Wall, Parts 1, 2, 3: Yeah, just pure incredible. Goodbye Blue Sky: Blew me away. Hey You: Can't really describe it. Is There Anybody Out There?: I feel this is an underrated and overlooked song. It gives me chills. Comfortably Numb: Nope, no words to describe it. The Trial: Best listened to in context with the whole album.

Well, don't get me wrong. Every other song is at least good. And you must own this album, because it is legendary in the world of music. But, strictly speaking, 4/5 stars.

Yanns | 4/5 |
