Pink Floyd - The Wall [1979]

Are there any queers in the audience tonight?

"The Wall" is one of those special albums that never gets boring no matter how many times you listen to it. In fact, one could argue it gets better the more you listen to it, as your ears have the chance to pick out all the little nuances added by the band.

A semi-autobiographical album written by Roger Waters, "The Wall" tells the story of a boy named Pink who loses his father in World War II. Growing up to become a rock star, he slowly shuts out those around him, building a psychological wall around him. In what was considered a large departure from the sound Pink Floyd had come to be associated with in the '70s, this album doesn't feature any 'long' songs, and uses several popular music structures in places (with the best-selling single "Another Brick in The Wall Pt. 2" even featuring a pseudo-disco beat. However, much of the band's relaxed yet angry playing style remained. This is extremely evident in "Comfortably Numb", which is often considered the best song ever written.

This is my favourite Pink Floyd album, and I'm sure if you enjoyed the previous three I posted, you will absolutely adore this one too.
