Great review. I actually think Money is a really good song - doesn't exactly slot into the tracklisting nicely, but I still like it. Anyway, great album, great review

sorry for bumping this, but after reading this review, i see the album in an entirely new perspective. when i first got it, i didn't exactly "get" it. I knew about the ideas behind this cd, but didn't "feel" the ideas. reading about your journey listening to the album has opened my eyes to not only the music, but the album as a whole. I also see Pink Floyd in a new light, and they're more than a bunch of great musicians. they really touched upon more outer ideas and beliefs than so many of their other contemporaries, and with a grace and beauty we may never see again.

thank you sir, you've done more for me with this than you may ever know

I heard good things about this album for years and eventually checked it out on download about a year or so ago & I just dont get what all the fuss is about. The only real song I like is 'Money' & to me the music just sounds very bland & uninspiring.
Now Im not a total Pink Floyd hater as I heard a song on the radio the other day (cant remember what one) and thought it was quite good.
Also I've heard David Gilmour's stuff and I also like quite a lot of it TBH.
I just put it down to my own personal taste (although I have a very open mind when it comes to music) that I cant appreciate this album.

I still love Money and I think it fits in there just fine.

Run Like Hell is the weakest track on it's own, but it's still quite awesome and I don't skip it. The way every song on this album seques together is just perfect. To push "skip" on this album is downright blasphemy.

you're right, Run Like Hell was the weakest track, too bad it was released six years later as a package promoted as 'the Wall'.

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

I meant On The Run. F*ck.

But since I brought it up, Run Like Hell is awesome and one of my favorites off The Wall.

I think that Brain Damage/Eclipse is the best of the album, personally. It's an amazing end to an amazing album.

but...they aren't songs! it's just a narrative about some character Waters invented. i really can't get anything out of that except a man who was fresh out of ideas for an ending.

i really don't like 'rock opera' structured albums, they focus too strongly on a storyline and not nearly enough on good songwriting to throw in.
