For the record, one can appreciate Pink Floyd and Devo equally. Slipknot? Not so much...

Gets me every time. First heard this watching The Wall on a TV on a rooftop in Bangkok in 1990. Masterful.

Hey Bill, thanks for redeeming this album for me. I got SO burned out on it by about 1981 and have avoided songs from it. But you're easing me back into it. I bumped this from a 3 to a 6. Kind of nice to have this album back.

It's a great song and a great album but in fairness the commenter here, SUBTLE isn't really an adjective you'd apply to The Wall.
