UK, 1979, rock opera / art rock

Pink FloydThe Wall: This album is a world unto itself (even without the film), equally philosophical and personal. It is the sonic equivalent of chiaroscuro, using the contrast of the light in the music and the darkness in the lyrics to give the whole thing a sense of volume. How much more ink can be spilled about this album, either to praise or criticize it? In the words of Titus Andronicus, “what fool hath brought a torch to bright-burning Troy?”
