Jefferson Airplane

The Last Wall of the Castle

Song Review by

Sounding not unlike a James Brown song on steroids, "The Last Wall of the Castle" is one of the Airplane's hardest-rocking songs. The words are sung in an almost too-fast-to-decipher flow, but the overt illustration of a generation changing at an alarming rate is apparent. Musically, it's a minor psychedelic masterpiece, and the incredibly fast tempo drives the melody over the goal line.
