It WAS their big album. That's what sucks.

ABBA

Ring Ring is okay and none of their albums live up to their best singles.

I have to agree with the hatred of the Wall, I just don't get how it could sell so much, there's just something about it that makes it feel incomplete, boring and generally awful. It falls into the same category as The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, both albums promise so much and deliver so little.

There's about three good tracks on The Wall.

I'm guessing it's the immersion factor that saves the Wall, but I found it too.... flamboyant for that to happen. There are some individual tracks that are catchy, but none warrant the purchase.

I just don't get how that's the first album anyone gets from Pink Floyd unless they were told to get otherwise. Any kid in my school except for a handful only like Pink Floyd for the wall.

Meh, I listened to Wish You Were Here first, that was just a random pick. Didn't want to go for The Wall or Dark Side Of The Moon right away.

But did you go on your own free will and listen to it? Or did you hear from people that they were good and they told you to hear the Wall because it's the best. I don't think I'm explaining it how I mean.

People like The Wall because it's the cliche stoner album. End of story.
