    Wow, bad post dude, they never said they weren't looking forward to the new stuff, they just weren't talking about it

    Why should we not look forward to the remasters, as amazing as the original Alan Parsons master is, apparently this James Guthrie one is very much worth listening to

    Plus the new masters are in gatefoldesque CD things and its awesome
    I personally only want the live shows and new stuff.

    I enjoyed the new "first version" of DSOTM.

    I remember first listening to The Division Bell when I was on holiday in the Isle of Wight. I'd found it for 2 in a charity shop, and we listened to it in the car on the way back to the cottage we were staying in.

    It was such a chilled out car journey, and I still remember that holiday whenever I hear the album.

    Ummagumma. You've listened to enough PF to explore their experimental side.

    His voice reminds me of mine, it's really universal (but mine sucks at the moment). But I will agree his voice is taylored towards Gilmour more, and mine is more of Roger Water's strange voice on The Wall... you know the one. Ask That_Crazy_GmanV2 - it sounds a lot better in person then recorded through a Guitar Hero Mic

    Not necessarily in the case of Obscured By Clouds, The Division Bell or The Final Cut. They're good but not as genious as DSOTM etc etc

    Well since I still have no idea about what you enjoyed the most, I'd say delving more into Prog Rock.

    You may end up liking Yes or Genesis more than Pink Floyd.

    Pink Floyd to prog is just like Metallica is to Thrash. They basically perfected it but there are many many more bands out there that do the same stuff that you will eventually get in to. I remember Metallica being the first band I got in to and after that I got in to so many other thrash bands. Now with Pink Floyd (Metallica) I'm starting to get in to Emerson Lake and Palmer(Megadeth) and soon to venture in to Genesis and Rush (Slayer and Anthrax, though I still never liked Anthrax lol). Not the best comparison but I hope you guys get what I mean

    We all pretty much feel equally about the wall; we know it's not the most Floyd album they've ever done but we know it's a fucking masterpiece

    I wouldn't say perfected.

    I'd say made it popular.
    You could say "Well I haven't found anything as good as Pink Floyd" but you clearly haven't experienced every album.

    That's a cool comparison bro

    Props.

    Relating to the wall, I heard a lot of bad press about it, people saying it wasn't Floyd and it being bad/mainstream and I dug it. I liked the length too. It had some classics but WYWH will always be my favourite, I remember thinking DSOTM was bad until about three weeks ago and I finally got it.

    Any colour you like best song erryday

    The best thing about the wall is it already makes the perfect setlist, with the openers, the climax, and everything.

    Also ACYL is such a stoner song lol. Speaking of which I need to listen to more Floyd when blazed. I usually just listen to Meshuggah or something twice as loud as I should

    Pink Floyd didn't perfect the progressive rock genre nor did they make it popular, they were part of the movement that made it popular which started with Sgt Pepper and Whiter Shader of Pale by Procol Harum, but they were definitely not the first. I would argue that Soft Machine, Procol Harum and a few other bands had the main role, but not Floyd.

    Pink Floyd's thing was that their music was written with the purpose of communicating the realities of the world as they are, instead of other bands like Emerson Lake and Palmer, which barely cared about the message and instead just tried to play the fuck out of their instruments. That's why Pink Floyd survived the punk genre, because they were relevant. Everyone ended up hating prog because it failed to connect to the audience but Pink Floyd always did that musically, and definitely lyrically. Like Animals was anti-Thatcher, etc. So while loads of people became ashamed to admit they liked Yes, King Crimson, Camel, etc, noone was too ashamed about liking the Floyd.

    As for perfecting it, they were more of a melding of progressive and art rock, and they were phenomenally good and I love them, with solid constructions of songs and stuff but they definitely didn't perfect prog rock at all

    This statement isn't valid, but everything else I can see where you're getting at.

    Progressive Rock got a bad rep because it was pretentious and artsy most of the time. The "pop" crowd back then were still accepting of the style, hence Yes and Genesis doing very well, but as a whole people were missing the point.

    As you said, from "Moon" onwards, they were more about themes that a lot of people could relate to.

    The Wall is pretty much a timeless concept, albeit not all that precise, but definitely relateable.

    Animals had it too, but since times have changed and people aren't too familiar with the communist concept as they were back then, it isn't as popular.

    It's a shame really that thematic albums aren't hitting the charts these days.

    Prog was a dirty word in the 80's right, everyone ended up hating the genre for a long while, or at least would never admit to liking it and the only bands that transcended it were bands that either were relevant, ie the Floyd, or bands that commercialised, Ie Genesis or Yes in 90125. Either way the roots of prog had to be cut away because there was such a backlash against it

    Animals was an adaptation of Animal Farm used as a protest against Margaret Thatcher and wasn't really focussing on the communism I would argue but yeah, Floyd transcended it because it was relevant

    And yeah, though in saying that I was incredibly impressed when Arcade Fire won a Grammy or whatever for the Suburbs. That was great, the Suburbs is a classic album

    Also Brain Salad Surgery is TERRIBLE, I cannot stand it in the slightest, it is honestly the most pretentious album. I just can't deal with anything past Tarkus
