    Default So I finally bought the Wall....

    Yeah, I never heard the whole album and always held off buying it because of how pricey it was....I have owned DSOTM for like ever and Piper At the Gates of Dawn as well..so this is my 3rd Pink Floyd album...Should be fun....

    I borrowed my uncle's copy...for a couple years, when I was in high school. I never liked it as much as DSOTM, but it's still incredible. It's so great when you actually have enough time set aside to actually listen to it.

    I figured it is going to be awhile before I have time to listen to anything else, if I really give it the time it deserves....

    Yeah, I held it off for the longest time because it is never cheap to buy...always "I'll buy later"...but with Coachella coming and Roger Waters probably playing tracks from it..might as well get cozy with it...

    the wall is a brilliant album. i was 8 when that album came out in 79 so i didnt really give it a good listen till around 1989 when i was 18 and really starting to get into rock. its a must have for anyone. just a great concept album . the movie isnt that great but it does tell the story fairly well. thee is a live album out there of the wall as well. good stuff. enjoy!

    I think the best song by Pink Floyd is "See Emily Play". I wish Roger Waters would play it, but I highly doubt he will...

    Yeah, that's not from The Wall, but still.

    definitely watch the movie, it really helps you understand the music better.

    admittedly, you do start to feel a little insane yourself towards the end of it.

    Agreed, "Wish" is their best album.


    I'm completely flummoxed by the fact that every time VH1 airs the movie. It describes "The Wall" as a documentary. I understand that a lot is based on Syd, but it's not a fucking documentary.

    I like The Wall album a lot more than I like the movie.It's almost like the movie tried to make this intensely personal,achingly self-revealatory document too literal.
    I feel like Alan Parker was the wrong choice of director for this.The animation scenes are incredible,sure,but the image I got in my head listening to the album did not have all the Fascist imagery that I now associate with it.

    I've been thinking of picking up some of the lesser-known Floyd albums, such as Atom Heart Mother. I have DSOTM, The Wall, Piper, Wish You Were Here and Animals. All of them are great.

    What do other people think of AHM, and some of the others like Final Cut?

    The Wall is such a masterpiece.
    Every song on that album is amazing.
    Especially the favorite "Comfortably Numb"
    And hopefully RW will play that song to finish his set off.

    Oh, GnarVee, you are totally right about DSOTM in the desert.
    The light show alone will be better than JJ.
