One of the best albums of Pink Floyd, surely, with "Dark Side of the Moon" and "Wish you were here"
About this creation
The Wall is the eleventh album by the English progressive rock group Pink Floyd. Released as a double album on 30 November 1979, it was subsequently performed live with elaborate theatrical effects, and adapted into a feature film, Pink Floyd – The Wall.

As with Pink Floyd's previous three LPs, The Wall is a concept album and deals largely with themes of abandonment and personal isolation. It was first conceived during their 1977 In the Flesh Tour, when bassist and lyricist Roger Waters's frustration with the perceived boorishness of the spectators became so acute that he imagined building a wall between the performers and audience. The album is a rock opera that centres on Pink, a character Waters modelled after himself, with some aspects based on the band's original leader, Syd Barrett. Pink's life experiences begin with the loss of his father during the Second World War, and continue with ridicule and abuse from his schoolteachers, an overprotective mother and finally, the breakdown of his marriage. All contribute to his eventual self-imposed isolation from society, represented by a metaphorical wall.

The Wall features a notably harsher and more theatrical style than Pink Floyd's previous releases. Keyboardist Richard Wright left the band during the album's production but remained as a salaried musician, performing with Pink Floyd during The Wall Tour. Commercially successful upon its release, the album was one of the best selling of 1980, and as of 1999, it had sold over 23 million RIAA certified units (11.5 million albums) in the United States. Rolling Stone magazine placed The Wall at number 87 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Salut Yann:-), Je viens de retoruner de Strasbourg avec ma femme. Elle a un peu plaisanté en disant que peut-être tu serais le conducteur de train de la SNCF de ce matin - c'était en effet qqn. d'assez jeune:-)De toute façon, l'expo était petite, mais jolie. C'est 'Fanabrique' - ce groupe d'AFOLS de l'Alsace - qui a prêté les modèles pour ce propos. Pas mal, mais certainement juste une partie minuscule de ce que l'on voit pouvoir voir à Rosheim fin juin... Si tu passes à côté (du Conseil Général du Bas-Rhin), ça vaut la peine de jeter un regard sur l'expo. Sinon, je crois que tout sera à visiter à Rosheim plus tard cette année... Bon, à la prochaine! Ciao, Steffen

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner Très bien fait, Yann (Yannick?)! T'as un goût musical qui me plaît aussi, je dois dire:-) Quand j'ai lu que tu vis dans "Bugatti Land", je savais que nous sommes presque voisins: Je fais des tours en vélos à Strasbourg fréquemment, et j'habite à 500m d'une des premières collines de la Forêt Noire:-)... Merci beaucoup d'ailleurs pour ton commentaire gentil concernant mon John Deere! T'as déjà vu l'expo de Lego dans l'Hôtel du Département à Strasbourg? J'y vais peut-être la semaine prochaine:-)... Je te souhaite un dimanche agréable. A bientôt, Steffen

Quoting David Roberts Ingenious! I like the way that you've used the various lengths of rods to get the correct proportions for the letters.
Thank you David! It was harder then it seems to be, because the letters are impossible! 8-)

Quoting Henrik Jensen Great album cover, Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands, and I clearly remember that I saw the movie when it was released here in Denmark. The masonry looks great with the big 2x4 tiles, and the writing is excellent.

Quoting Dr. Monster Coolness. I'm a huge fan of Pink Floyd. Although, as much as I like "The Wall", I prefer their older work. Stuff like "Meddle", or "Umma Gumma". Can't wait to see who's next.
Thanks! I agree; meddle is gorgeous! I love the first song! And next album will be something very hippie-ish! 8-)

Quoting matt rowntRee Love Pink Floyd and their albums, especially Dark Side and Animals. Have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with The Wall. It's an odd album in the respect that it is so polarizing. There are times that it appeals and other times when it doesn't. I don't think there is any other album that affects me in the same way. It's a good AND bad thing. Still, the music is exceptional and the movie was invigoratingly original. The moc is faithful to the cover, very well done. Speaking of "well done", when will we be seeing Wish You Were Here? XD Awesome! Sorry for the lengthy comment.
Thanks but wait wait wait: I have planed to build wish you were here, but I will first diversify this collection with other album covers of other groups... 8-) and it is true that The wall is strange; the film and the albums; but I like it! 8-)
