FAO fans of Pink Floyd, musical analysis, philosophy, deep thinking, articulate intelligence & more

I have become entranced by Amy Shafer and her on-going reaction and analysis videos to Pink Floyd - The Wall.
She is an amazing and insightful listener, interpreter and communicator.
I simply encourage you to watch, admire and enjoy.

I cringe & recoil from those clickbait 1st reaction style videos from people with not much to say.

This isn’t that. This is on a whole other level. She does a reaction video and, uniquely I think, she does a follow up analysis video.


At first glance, the poster frame had me expecting her to say, “Oh, he hung up, that’s your residence, right? I wonder why he hung up?”

Oh wow, she’s very meticulous, I couldn’t t agree more on that click bait that magically appear with millions of clicks.

Isn’t she. :slight_smile:

This great Richard, thanks for the heads up. A new perspective and new things to learn!


Interesting clip Richard :smiley:
I’m probably easy to impress, but I enjoyed watching some of Doug’s PF reaction/analysis videos. Do you know them? He does a funny one smoking a bong and analysing Hocus Pocus by Focus

Have you watched more than one video from Amy?
Of the 8 now in that playlist, there are 4 pairs. Each pair is a firstisten then analysis. The analsis is where the gold resides.
I have just watched Doug’s first listen and see why you connected and linked it. It is not the 1st listen and reaction that has prompted me to post. In the follow up videos Amy goes further, wider, deeper. She really does talk beyond the music, about life and meaning.


I’ve been following Amy since you first posted this and it has been immensely enjoyable. Not only is she giving me new appreciation for The Wall, but she’s helping me understand the music theory behind why I like it so much.

As a relative newcomer to music theory, most of what I have learned so far is the “what” of music theory. Amy does a great job of giving some insight into the “how” and “why”.

And if you like old Genesis, her recent reaction and breakdown of Firth of Fifth is amazing.

Thanks again for sharing this. Her work has been educational and entertaining.

I have literally just finished watching the latest reaction to Empty Spaces. The analysis will be on my watch list once live.
