    I can't help but think the solo in Fat Old Sun is ripped off from Let It Be. I don't know which one was released first though.

    The Flamings Lips covering Dark Side of the Moon
    Pretty good cover of the album. I like how the Lips arranged the songs to fit their own style, rather than trying a carbon copy of the album like so many other DSotM tribute albums.

    I was about to post Phish or Dream Theater, but they just rehashed the album. Then I heard this one, which is a pretty interesting take on it.

    They were released on the same year. Let it be was released in May, Fat Old Sun started to be played live July 16th. Definitely not plagiarised.

    Gilmour rips off himself. The Shine On You Crazy Diamonds solo is very similar to an earlier solo he did. I wish I could remember what song. Kyle v2 sent me a link to it in the DD tinychat a while ago and I wouldn't remember it because I'm not all that knowledgeable of their earlier stuff. He also breaks up that same solo a lot on the Division Bell during a lot of the song intros and of course makes some minor changes, though I think that was more symbolic.

    Edited:

    Oh found it, Love Scene Version 6. Some people may not consider it that similar considering the song is totally different, but to me is it sound so very similar. Did he technically rip himself off? No, but he's using a ton of the same licks from that song in Shine On and when I first heard that song I felt like I was hearing the Shine On solo in a different genre.

    So Some 3-4 years ago I discovered Dream Theater and since then I've not found any other music I really like. I'd find something, listen to it, go back to listening to dream theater and forget the other thing. This went on for years, and the last 6 months it's been agonizing because a man can only listen to the same music over and over a gain before it becomes sickeningly repetitive.
    I'm delighted and relieved to post that I've found a way out of this loop, guess what it is.

    Whenever someone asks for music like Pink Floyd, people usually recommend Dream Theater. I'm big fans of both bands.

    Compare the opening solo of Raise My Rent (0:59) to the live opening solo of What Do you Want From Me? (0:32)

    Yeah, the Gilmour one is longer and more rugged.

    They were more Jazz, Hard Rock and New Wave oriented. Nop.

    When it's Pink Floyd... I'd think of things like Porcupine Tree, Hawkwind and stuff.

    I definitely recognize some prog rock elements but yeah, it's pretty different.
    Especially dream theaters newer (and shittier(post 2000(with the exception of octavarium))) music, they've always been more prog metal than prog rock.

    Anyways, gotten through 3 albums so far and so far I think Time is my favorite song of all time.

    Pink Floyd are in a league of their own I think with Prog. Probably because of the lyrical quality and the simplicity of their music. For prog its very very simple so much more memorable.

    Stuff like Dream Theater is so technical that it actually ends up shitting me. King Crimson can't be compared, nor can Genesis or Yes or ELP because the lyrics are so fantastical and the music so complex. When I think Floyd, I think of bands like Porcupine Tree and Radiohead because they can't be categorised into a singular genre or labelled in any way at all. They're really really unique.

    The way I see Floyd is the way they make you feel. Musically they're not easy to compare, but the mood is similar to things I've heard before.

    I've always been an old fashioned metal guy, but I like Pink Floyd simply because they're arguably of the greatest songwriters to come out of the UK, and when all 4 of their primary line up collaborate well, magic happens.

    This may sound dumb, but I don't see how Pink Floyd are even that 'progressive'. Nick Mason can't even play in complex time signatures, and their songs don't necessarily progress all the time. No doubt their stuff have that Progressive Rock feel though.

    Agreed. But hearing Piper At The Gates of Dawn and Animals, they're definitely prog/space rock.

    Everything else is more artsy though.

    I've always seen them as art rock more than prog. all of their early line up until Obscured by Clouds was prog, but you can't call anything past that prog except for maybe Animals. In fact its probably no coincidence that DSOTM was both their breakthrough album and the one that took a step away from prog.

    All of Pink Floyd has prog elements to be sure, like unusual time signatures (Money is in 7/4 I think, or something unusual like that) and extended instrumentals and long songs, but it sounds so unlike any other prog band that you can't really call them that.

    And I would argue that while all prog bands are unique they all share a similarity that makes them recognisable - Pink Floyd doesn't have that. So they could be called prog but they're very different to your average prog band.

    On the Run, Any Colour you Like, Speak to Me, Great Gig in the Sky are pretty prog

    Actually lets just class DSOTM as still quite prog

    I disagree, most of their early stuff was Psychedelic Rock, but Soundtrack From The Film More, Disc 2 of Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother, and Obscured By Clouds are pretty much standard Prog, so all in all they danced around it.

    The only element of "Rock" in that song is the backing rhythm. If it struggles to even be rock how can it be PROG rock.

    One thing that bothers me is the similarity of the guitar intros to Echoes and Shine On You Crazy Diamond

    Echoes:

    Why'd you skim over DSOTM? Division Bell maybe but you DSOTM?

    Ummagumma, a double album, features a studio album, which is basically each of the four members of PF (Wright, Waters, Gilmour, Mason) creating their own songs individually, and playing all instruments themself. Pretty hard to like.

    It is a double album, though. The second part is a live CD, which is about as close to God as you can get so I recommend that.

    * Astronomy Domine
    * Saucerful of Secrets
    * Careful With That Axe, Eugene
    * Set The Controls for the Heart of the Sun

    Not in that order but you get the idea. They're all really long, longer than the originals I think
