Back in 1977, Pink Floyd were one of, if not the biggest band in the world. Their 3 most recent album releases The Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals, had all been immensely successful, at both a commercial and critical level, and it seemed that, although the band had always had tension and intrigue lurking under the surface, there was no reason why the band should not continue making great albums for a long. wall, in an attempt at self-protection, before descending into neo-fascist insanity after the wall is complete, eerily mirroring Hitler in the war that claimed his father. Pink Floyds The Wall Opera Trades Rock for Emotional Power. World-premiere production in Montreal gets two standing ovations. A new operatic rendition of Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' album proves rock operas don't always need to rock. Yves Renaud. Now, its a modern opera using some of Floyds original music, but mostly delving into atonal territory and its part of Montreals 375th-anniversary celebrations, complete with appreciations in the program by both the citys mayor and Quebecs minister for the region. But does The Wall, Waters most enduring creation and one of the greatest rock operas, work without the rock Yes and no. Pink Floyd The Wall Review. Released 1979. Recorded in Los Angeles, France and London over an eight month period, The Wall is a sort of recorded version of the David Essex film, Stardust. The tale of rock star makes it falls apart is put together to perform by those whose lives depend on him goes bonkers, turns fascist and faces retribution. Its themes of loneliness, war, loveless marriages and overbearing mothers struck an enormous chord with audiences the world over the accompanying stage show, which saw the group perform large sections of the show behind a polystyrene wall, wrote this alienation large. Pink Floyd The Wall is a 1982 musical film directed by Alan Parker, based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album The Wall. The screenplay was written by Pink Floyd vocalist and bassist Roger Waters. Bob Geldof plays rock star Pink, who, driven into insanity by the death of his father, constructs a physical and emotional wall to protect himself. Like the album, the film is highly metaphorical, and symbolic imagery and sound are present most commonly. The film is mostly driven by music and does not feature much. The Wall is the eleventh studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd. It was released as a double album on 30 November 1979 in the United Kingdom Floyd's The Wall film review archive, 15 July 1982. Read more. The Floyd have dealt with such themes before, from The Dark Side of the Moon to Animals, but never with such bitter passion. This is a long, uneven work that seems to lose direction on the confusing third and fourth sides, and it veers uneasily between crazy indulgence and nihilistic brilliance. But shows that those members of the new wave who attacked the band because of their vast concerts and use of elaborate technology, had really missed the point. This album will either be praised or damned. And that comes after a whole depressing life and death Wall saga. No, this is not easy listening. The rock opera Pink Floyd: The Wall, first performed in 1978, came at a time when some rock artists were taking themselves very seriously indeed. While the Beatles and Stones had recorded stand-alone songs or themed albums at the most, The Who produced Tommy in 1969 and Quadrophenia in 1973. Or perhaps there are concert scenes, and they're disguised as an extended portrait of a modern fascist dictator whose fans morph into an adoring populace. I don't believe this dictator is intended as a parallel to any obvious model like Hitler or Stalin he seems more a fantasy of Britain's own National Socialists led by Oswald Mosley. That's the premise behind Pink Floyd's conceptual album, The Wall 1979, which talks about an individual who decided to hide behind the wall he built by the abandonment of his father, the overbearing nature of his mother, the dark state of society, human nature, fame, and war. That's clearly not a hopeful situation for a hurt psyche like his. Roger Waters turned solitude, loneliness, and emotional collapse into a powerful-and beautiful-opera with The Wall and its fictional character, Pink Floyd. The Wall is Pink Floyds, or better said, Roger Waters overpompous, pretentious double album. A rockopera in the true sense of the word. It became Pink Floyds most recognasible albums over history, along with The Dark Side of The Moon, and also it has become one of their biggest succsesses. The Wall is an extremely personal and disturbing musical piece in my opinion, and I rarely listen to it as a whole, since it feels like a half of year of psychotherapy summed up in 90 minutes of music
