"The book part of this dvd & book set may indeed be worth a read but I didn't pay to read the book I wanted to see the DVDs, so my review is of the DVDs.
Disc 1 was ok to watch. At least they broke down the album and went through each track (even if some explanations of a track were just that an explanation). At least we got to see the members of Pink Floyd talk about The Wall and their experience being with the band.
Disc 2 the so called Pink Floyd in their own words was just that (or from what I saw was). The first few minutes I watched was filled with images of mixers, drums, tape recorders and music with no talking. If that is all you are going to show at least play music that was performed by the band. The version of Another Brick in the wall part 2 I heard made me cringe. When you did hear the members of the band and production members talk it was just that... talking... with maybe a picture of the person who was speaking.
If there is actually any point of the 2nd Disc where you see a member of the Band being interviewed please let me know because I ended up stopping this Disc out of pure frustration.
The book may be good to read but I certainly wouldn't pay this much money to buy a book."

"Unlike the previous reviewer I have actually seen the DVD and read the book and yes it is indeed a very good and thorough review of The Wall . It's not anything else nor does it claim to be .It seems totally wrong to paste reviews of products you haven't seen"
...still the waters...

"To all the naysayers...
There are those who love criticize these series of 'rock documentary' dvds, ("Critical Review", "Rock Milestones", "Inside", "Under Review", etc.), and their criticism usually comes under two headings...NO MUSIC and UNKNOWN OPINIONATED WANNA-BE's...
To the first, I say...These discs are not about 'hearing' the music...they are about 'discussing' the music...so pay attention...
and to the latter...These so-called 'nobody' critics are actually top people from the music world, many who are 'journalists', and many who are 'musicians' and/or 'producers', etc...
These documentaries are made in England, which is probably why you don't know any of them...
If you had any sense of the music industry at all, you wouldn't make such pathetic comments to begin with...
If you just want benign, inane, substandard 'american-style' claptrap, turn off your dvd player and simply watch "American Idol"...
but...if you have a brain and actually want to use it...and you love music...then this set, plus others i have mentioned, are for you..."
