Letter: Not a crack in 'The Wall'

The Independent Online
Sir: Giles Smith ('Did anybody hear that?', 25 March), alleges that the words, 'Isn't this where . . . ?' appear as a mistake at the end of Pink Floyd's The Wall. Not so.

If the first side of the album is listened to very closely, the words '. . . I came in' can be heard, making the sentence: 'Isn't this where I came in?' The album is meant to be circular, indicating the viscous and perpetual cycle of human existence, one of the points of this 'concept' album.

I am just able to hear this on my second-hand LP copy, not digitally remastered or stuck on bits of silver plastic]

Yours sincerely,



25 March
