Why This Album Is So Great:

Anybody who's even remotely interested in rock music knows this album. It's a classic. Therefore, I don't really need to explain too much why this double CD is among my 50 best. My reasons for loving this album are probably the same as everybody else. It's the best Pink Floyd has ever done, even though "Wish You Were Here" is a close second. The band is also on my Top 25 Artist List, but I'm clearly most into the material from "Wish" and on. The very early Pink Floyd is not really my cup of tea (to use a good traditional English phrase). However, the latest effort "The Division Bell" also has its shortcomings. It's simply too well produced. So, the era where Roger Waters was still in the band and everything was still together stand as the most important for me. And here "The Wall" shines as the greatest landmark.

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10):9
