5 stars What an effective concept album.

Simple and straight in your face, The Wall hits hard like a ton of bricks. The story is touching, more than some other concept albums like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway or the A Passion Plays of this world where the story is overcomplex. Here, Roger Waters tells the story of a rock stars who is depressive and eventually builds his own mental wall between him and the rest of the world. This eventually happened in my own country. when Pink Floyd played at Montreal in the Olympic Stadium. Roger Waters wanted to play songs from the new album, which was Animals at the time. The sound was bad, which didn't helped the background of the concert and the audiance wanted songs from the other albums. Roger Waters spat at the audience and he felt disconnected to the rest of them. So the montrealers helped him writing the Wall.

The rest goes to history. The most well known concept album of all time, but also one of the best.
