5 stars Here is the cornerstone of the contemporary music, well, not only contemporary music, but also the contemporary art. Everything about this album is wonderful, especially Waters' genius lyrics stand out. I really feel out of words to describe this amazing piece of art as it is clearly more than just an album, involving a quite dark storyline with deep messages to tell.

I agree that "The Wall" offers not so much for the prog music; It's more of a "classic rock" album, but I mean, seriously, what collection of music can be taken seriously if it doesn't contain "The Wall" ? It surely influenced many people involving great musicians, and enriched our worlds. For that, it more than deserves 5 stars...

One last thing, it seems to me as this album represents a kind of "exhaustion" in Pink Floyd's music; first of all, prog elements are not that often found as they were in Floyd's previous albums, and from this point PF will crumble down musically, "The Wall" being their last high quality album. It is also sad that such a great band (greatest ever in my opinion) had to collapse earlier than their natural lifetime.
