    Would this work?
    Soundproof a party wall.
    On an already plastered wall (Dot and Dab) drill 1 hole every 1ft, then fill with Expanding foam.
    Cover wall with MDF 1/2" or 3/4" the thicker the better.
    Use silicone adhesive to stick the MDF to the existing wall, being sure to fill all the gaps with silicone. Then get some soundboard plasterboard and do the same to the MDF, skim and paint....Job Done!

    As long as you buy "closed cell" foam, yes.

    Also the more pliable it stays(as in, doesn't turn into a rock)...the better as well.Basically if you buy "open cell, turns into a rock"...there was no point in wasting your time.
