Pink Floyd, The Wall*****: Technically, this is the first Floyd album I ever loved though I didn't initially listen to it until well after the release year. I discovered this around 1985 or so, and I fell in love with the over-the-top nature. Still, it didn't send me cruising through their back catalog. Not yet. That would have to wait for a few more years. 11/7/14
