Yeah, take it down a bit
Yeah, take it down a bit
Hopefully they'll release The Big Spliff.
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.
Man, you sound really fucking similar to these guys.
Your Dave is a bit more powerful than Rog.
Okay I've listened to
Meddle (3-4 times)
DSOTM (Must be around 8)
Wish You Were Here (9-12)
Divison Bell (1-2)
What should I listen to next
You get a dumb for not being helpful
what specifically? I know that some of the stuff I haven't heard if bound to be crap.
my knowledge so far tells me that pink floyd albums are either genius or they fucking suck
more of the time it's the former luckily
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
I guess. I'm being pretty vague.
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
let me fix that for you
Fuck Pearl Jam
You guys need to mature, "it fucking sucks" is music toddler talk.
toddler talk fucking sucks
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
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.
Well everyone ended up hating ELP
YOU LITTLE SCHIT YOURE INNIT NYAOW I HOPE THEY THROW AWAY THE KEYY
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
