Sound — 10
This bands sound is very, very original (even now). It is very experimental and very relaxing(on most songs). The wall is a 2 record album, And has had a movie based on the album. The music styles used in the album are very diverse, from the guitar solos in Comfortably numb, to the symphony-esque sounds in other songs. Right now I own only the original album, so anything on the CD I cannot comment on.
Lyrics — 10
The impression you gain after you listen to the lyrics is amazing. The words flow with the music, and Roger Waters is an angel. The album follows a mans journey outside of the wall. Some of the best songs on the wall are ones based mostly on voice and toned down on music.
Overall Impression — 10
Compared to Pink floyds other albums it ties with Animals for me. The most impressive songs on the album are all on side 3 and are all very well versed on radio. Hey you, and Comfortably numb. I love the fact that this album follows a story, but I hate how is there anybody out there starts.(it scares the shit out of my every time). If it were stolen I would buy the CD but the album is very dear to me, so I would probably try really hard to get it back.
