Pink Floyd already had one of the greatest albums ever. I did not think they could ever match it until I heard The Wall. More than any other album I relate to this one. I feel the isolation, the misery, the pain, the loneliness, the sadness, the rejection and it goes on and on. This is the I could listen to forever.
“Goodbye Cruel World” is my song for the end of my life. The world has been cruel to me and it still is cruel. I wish it was over.
The only song that I would leave off the album is “Vera”. It seems pointless and I hate it.
Of course, as most people would say, I love “Comfortably Numb“. It is an incredible song.
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb
My dreams died when I was a child too. I was made to feel unloved.
I could go on and on about how much I love each song and its meaning to me, but I think you should listen to the whole album now. It is a masterpiece of art. I love that it tells a story from beginning to end. There is even a film version of the album. 10/10.
