I must admit I've never made it all the way through The Wall in one sitting.

Think I once managed to get all the way through the first disc ... maybe ...

Eighteen tracks done so far, nothing too impressive.

You mean as a whole, or no impressive single tracks?

Because as maligned as The Wall is, it does have its share of peaks to go along with the valleys.

I basically just need to find someone I know who dabbles in torrents and get them to download the whole discography for me.

The flow is good, but the tracks themselves don't really stand up.

Hey You was the only notable thing in the first eighteen.

Just finished up the eighteenth track.

As tracks, I only rate Hey You, Comfortably Numb, and Run Like Hell.

I stopped looking at the track names early for more objective reviews.

Track nineteen is great so far.

Mother and Goodbye Blue Sky are terribly underrated around here. The segue there is amazing.

You're on Comfortably Numb. No wonder.

I'd argue that Disc 1, through Goodbye Blue Sky, is very good. It's after that that it loses its way.

One of their best, I'd say, after listening.

Don't Leave Me Now and Empty Spaces are terrible, so I would agree with this.

I love the part Pfan is going to hear next. Waiting For The Worms, Run Like Hell, In The Flesh

I listened to Comfortably Numb a few days ago for the PF Survivor final, and was surprised and somewhat let down to find it not as good as I remember. Not even the solo ...
