The movie really opened my eyes too it. Whilst I disagree there, I can see where you're coming from, the animation in a lot of places (The Trial, Brick 2, Hey You extra) really encapsulates the story.

To end an argument with a mate, would you say the Wall story is a kid who, because of some traumatic childhood events, becomes isolated and decides to cut ties with the outside world, by building a wall around him, and then becomes so disillusioned he imagines himself the leader of a fascist party?

Recently, while trawling the YouTube I stumbled upon the track that had freaked the hell out of me when I was little It was probably the crazy screaming that did it.

YouTube - Pink Floyd - Careful With That Axe Eugene

I also watched The Wall the movie when I was little and it had left a huge impression on me - especially the marching hammers sequence.

Sorry for the late reply.

A lot of it is about interpretation and I agree with everything but the last part. I don't think he imagines it. What I mean is that while he might not have reached the heights of what you see in the movie, I think he lived through that personality. The way I look at The Wall is that as you pull back from the world you can't account for the subconscious things. As the personality of a person descends into themselves, other things come to the surface. In The Wall, those things are represented by war or Nazi symbolism. The victimized are tied to the monster and they become it while the monster becomes the victimized. It is about becoming the very thing that has destroyed you.

I think that this is as good a reason as any to bump this thread:

Why Pink Floyd...?

These reissues look extremely enticing. I'll likely fall prey to at least two of those deluxe box sets.

These look nice, but what if you want the deluxe versions of DSOTM, WYWH, and The Wall and the rest of the remastered albums? Do you then by each album separately, or get the "Discovery" box and end up with two copies of those three albums?

I suppose the Discovery box would be cheaper, and then I could resell the standard versions of DSOTM, WYWH, and The Wall on eBay or something. But kind of a pain.

The big question is what kind of unreleased material are we talking about here. I didn't think there were a lot of leftovers from them. Probably a lot of alternate takes and the like.

Saucerful of Secrets needs a remaster, badly, so that's good.

Didn't Dark Side just get remastered back in 2003 for the 30th anniversary? Still, this sounds like a cool idea...should be interesting to see what unreleased stuff they're able to dig up.

It looks as though they have live material as a bonus for WYWH, which is something that I have always wanted. The Wall will have demos as bonus material, and Dark Side appears to have some form of alternate mix of the album. I think that the 90s reissues are pretty strong, so I'm only after the bonus material here.

They're not even really trying to disguise this desperate grab for cash.

The absence of a Meddle song from the best-of collection is a shame, but having no representative from Animals is a damn travesty.

I don't think you can have a "best of" Pink Floyd without it ruining their music. A lot of their best tracks are over five minutes long and the semblance of story is completely lost when you throw the tracks on a compilation.
