Is In The Flash from Pink Floyd's The Wall the best opening act of all live concerts?

    Have you ever experienced greater opening song from a live concert then In The Flash from The Wall?

    If so, please tell me which one it is, since I have never heard or seen one with better lyrics, more powerful music or a wiser visual idea for opening the event.

    Uh, yeah. You can start with "Echoes" from Live At Pompeii.

    I have to say, "The Wall" is one of my least favorite albums.

    "Echoes" are pretty damn good, but must disagree for The Wall.

    For me, The Wall is a religious experience since I heard it for the firs time. Every time I listen to it even 35 years after the first time, I feel that something is changing inside me at the cellular level.

    You mean like radiation poisoning, or something? Are you morphing into another life form?

    Yep, they jumped the shark for me on that album, it’s kind of boring, actually, and I really don’t care about anything that came after, it all sounds the same to me. I’d rather listen to Meddle or Saucerful. I don’t even own a copy of DSOTM. Never needed to. I saw them only once, on the Animals tour; they came without fanfare, played that album in its entirety, followed by all of WYWH, finishing up with an encore of “Money”. It would have been far more memorable for me if they’d opened with “One Of These Days”, or reversed the album order and kicked off with “Shine On...”.
