The Wall is the eleventh studio album by the British progressive rock band Pink Floyd, originally released in November 1979 via Harvest EMI Records in the UK and Columbia Records in the US.

It is the last studio album released with the classic line-up of guitarist David Gilmour, bass guitarist/lyricist Roger Waters, keyboardist Richard Wright, and drummer Nick Mason before Wright left the band.

Originally released as a double album on 30 November 1979, it was supported by a tour with elaborate theatrical effects, and adapted into a 1982 feature film, Pink Floyd – The Wall.

The album features the band's only single to be number one on various charts, Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.

As with Pink Floyd's previous three albums, The Wall is a concept album which explores themes of abandonment and personal isolation. The album is a rock opera that follows Pink, a character whom Waters modelled after himself and the band's original leader, Syd Barrett.

Pink's life begins with the loss of his father during the Second World War and continues with abuse from his schoolteachers, an overprotective mother, and the breakdown of his marriage; all contribute to his eventual self-imposed isolation from society, represented by a metaphorical wall.

Waters conceived the album during Pink Floyd's 1977 In the Flesh Tour, when his frustration with the audience became so acute that he imagined a wall between the audience and the stage.

The album features a harsher and more theatrical style than Pink Floyd's previous albums.  Three singles were released from the album including the amazing Comfortably Numb (this video from 2005 Live 8 performance), with soaring guitar solos.

Wright left the band during its production but remained as a salaried musician, performing with Pink Floyd during the Wall tour.

The album was one of the best selling of 1980, and by 1999 it had sold over 23 million RIAA-certified units (11.5 million albums), making it the third highest certified album in the United States. 

Rolling Stone magazine placed The Wall at number 87 on its list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

The Wall topped album charts around the world and Roger Waters has, as a solo artist, toured the album globally from 2010 to 2013.

This is a Limited Edition Double Album 2LP Record Set featuring the 2016 Pink Floyd Remasters on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve replicating the Original Packaging, pressed in the US.
