    There's a lot of knocking of this record but while it might be a tad self-indulgent, bar a couple of tracks it manages to keep the quality levels consistently high throughout. Concept albums are always divisive and more often then not its an effort to go back and listen to them again, in the case of "The Wall", it really rewards repeated listening. The scope of the record is pretty amazing and it really is an example of music as "art". Expand

    All in all, a classic album. Pink Floyd paints the story of a rockstar building a mental wall around himself, and what results is one of the greatest concept albums of all time. The music is all wonderfully arranged, and the lyrics all profound. Gut wrenching guitar solos, classic moments like "Another Brick In The Wall" and "Comfortably Numb", and a still epic atmosphere all contribute to the timeless appreciation of this album. Expand

    I don't know about any fancy "Experience/Immersion Edition" but Pink Floyd's Wall is a truly remarkable album. It has the classic rock 'n' roll feel yet it has a crazy heart felt passion no other album has. This album that tells a story about a rockstar who has a wall built between him and the rest of the normal world, is truly a MUST HAVE! one of my favorites.

    Not as good as Dark side of the moon or wish you were here but amazing none the less. its an operatic masterpiece that has kept its reputation through the years and is made even better on the Experience/Immersion Edition.

    The real prize here is Waters' demo excerpts, 22 recordings chopped into a dizzying 14-minute medley of delusional grandeur. The bassist sounds not like a jaded rock star, but like an outsider folk artist – sheltered and off-kilter – finding escape in lo-fi pop oddities full of echo, warm synths, and cross-faded effects.

    Needless to say, The Wall's Immersion Edition is a visual thing of beauty, ...The undeniable black eye on this Immersion Edition, however, is the way by which they handled the inclusion of Roger Waters' solo demos... the majority of this coveted cache of rarities is whittled down to a series of poorly edited snippets that barely last a minute or even a few seconds in some instances.

    It's as complete as any Floyd completist could hope for. [Apr 2012, p.101]
