Also I gave The Wall a good start-to-finish listen the other night Liked it but honestly prefer some earlier albums
The Wall is pretty overrated. Still good but it's probably my least favourote after Momentary Lapse
[QUOTE=Clovis;31319379]The Wall is pretty overrated. Still good but it's probably my least favourote after Momentary Lapse[/QUOTE] I wasn't taken in by the concept as compared to Animals, Moon or even Division Bell...
I didn't even get caught in the concept in those, but I still enjoyed them a hell of a lot more
You probably did, but haven't realised it yet. :)

Yeah I heard about that bro, that's quite funny.
Wow that had to suck... No one got hurt?

The next stream will be Gdansk, then. It'll be a pretty long stream, however. Two and a half hours, isn't it?

[QUOTE=soapyy;31332603][i]"just not if you can hear me....."[/i][/QUOTE] nod* The song is about how a "doctor" comes to help Pink, the main character of The Wall, to give him something to make him able to perform. [i]Hello... is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me... Is there anyone home?[/i] It makes more sense if you look at the beginning of this portion of The Wall movie.

On a more universal level, the song is about how when people are in any kind of despair, they are easier to take advantage of. The Doctor in the song can represent governments, the media, corporations, etc., who offer "solutions" that people in despair don't necessarily need that might even hurt them. Yet the people accept them anyways because they numb themselves so as not to feel any more pain from their helplessness. And the entities who gain control over them keep them desensitized with the 'pinprick' of propaganda, products, lies, etc. Sorry, if you're not interested in song/lyric analysis, I just wanted to give my interpretation. The music by itself is beautiful.

Instead of all Beatles Beatles Beatles! I have a wall with a few posters on it: one poster of the Ummagumma album cover that came witht he CD, The Wall theatrical poster that came with the DVD, a framed Led Zeppelin STH poster I got from an antique store for like ten bucks, and the little "PINK FLOYD THE DIVISION BELL" sticker from that CD :v:
i got the stairway to heaven. tbh its not worth framing them since theyre probably gonna be made till the end of the world sometime next year.
Well shit this was dirt cheap at an antique store so Sucks that 75% of Barnes and Noble's music posters are Abbey Road in some form or another. Good album but jeesh
Gdansk contains the best comfortably numb solo ever recorded by the way Also I think the Wall has a lot more relevance in modern society like Roger Waters seems to believe.
Well my main complaint with The Wall is that a lot of the songs just seemed too happy or divided in emotion. Take "One Of My Turns" for instance. Has a lot of potential building up, and then it becomes this jam-fest with happy-sounding guitars, but the lyrics still show pain. And "Mother", as I may have said before, is a very sad song, and then comes the solo and it's HAPPY-sounding!

It's done for an ironic effect.

My complaint is the actual sound, he made Floyd very "dry" sounding as compared to the "big", ambient Floyd. I know why he chose to make the record sound like that, but sheesh... If he had that mindset he should've made it a solo record.
That's because of the lack of Rick's involvement in the album. I'm sure it would've had that sound if he'd have more input.
Maybe.. But dang, He should have thought of the effect it would have on their previous work. It seems completely out of place with their natural sound.
Even more so with The Final Cut.
Well, Final Cut is a weird one. I don't even know what to think of that as.
Fuck the Wall, I wanna listen to Echoes (the song). The build-up in that song is just so [i]intense[/i], every bar I'm like "This is where the guitar solo starts!", but no, it continues!
Should've been there for the Live in Pompeii broadcast. Was epic.
