    you live in the UK and you struggle to find pink floyd records.

    please walk down the road and try harder.
    That's what I did, and that's how I got my other stuff. Problem is, it's either all sold out, or they don't have them.

    I saw 3 different versions (as in year of release) of 6 albums in a HMV once. You can do it.

    my biggest gripe is their lack of solo releases.

    I'm pretty damn sure there's experimentation going on but they ain't got the balls to do it.

    Peter Hammill releases a crapload, Robert Fripp? Peter Gabriel?

    Maybe they weren't cut out to be solo artists, but Waters was definitely capable.

    All their albums need Immersion. Quad mixes, 5.1 mixes, official releases of restored footage, remastered albums, best live concert from each tour.

    None of their solo releases were exactly experimental. I dont think many of them were anything worth talking about either except maybe Broken China

    I remember posting this one here some time ago and someone corrected me on what it actually was. It wasn't a bootleg apparently, or something.
    Someone care to enlighten me again?

    So I finished listening to Wish You Were Here for the first time (got the experience edition, but I'd have much rather just get the standalone version because it's cheaper and I really don't care a lot about the extra contents) and I liked it in general. Bit of a short album (I love long albums, anything above one hour because I usually listen to music while commuting and traffic in Panama can be dreadful) but really complete. I absolutely love Shine On and WYWH, Welcome to the machine and have a cigar are a bit harder to digest but I'm pretty sure they'll grow on me.

    Besides this, I've only listened to DSOTM, which is pretty high up there in my top albums list. Which album should I get next? (I usually buy one record per month, when I can).

    I'm interested in Animals and Atom Heart Mother (I listened to the first track of AHM, holy shit!). Anyone's opinion on Animals?

    Edited:

    Also, the packaging of this "Experience" edition seems really lazy and poorly made. The pages have these border decorations and they get at times cut off from the page and the printing quality is disappointing.

    Animals is a great album, all of the songs on it are pretty solid. While it may not as be as long as to your liking, I think you'll like it just as much as WYWH.

    Dogs is the best on that one, imo.

    Thanks! I'll probably have someone bring them to me from the US because record stores in this country are TERRIBLE.

    Theoretically, if it is mixed correctly and nothing is out of phase, you could just use a DAW to combine both stereo channels

    I did it with my Doors album, and it worked wonders because the stereo mix on that is just awful, hard panning everything left and right.

    there's nothing wrong with the mixing on it.

    unlike Beatles records or Bob Dylan ones..

    Funny, I also used to listen to a lot of Floyds , but not anymore. Still it's nice to come back to them once in a while.

    It was probably been said already, but are the Immersion sets worth any attention? I mean music-wise, I don't care much for scrafs.

    I love this one:

    It's not the mixing is bad, but I've heard that the Mono release changes up the album quite a bit. And I'd love to compare it to the Stereo version.

    Listening to the Discovery version of Animals again, since I've only listened to that version once before.
    I really like the mixing, doesn't sound that different, but feels very nice and soft for some reason.

    tbh there wasn't every a bad pressing of that album.

    but as much of a bod as I am, it's best heard on LP.

    From what I've heard, and as much as I hate to admit it, you're probably right on the LP part.
    Too bad I don't have a vinyl of the album.

    Pink Floyd and the Beatles are the two sinful bands that you should not like too much in my book

    as far as I've seen they're the two bands that breed fanbases that seem to never want to listen to any other music but pink floyd or the beatles which is just awful

    I'm not saying they shouldn't like them, I mean look at me I think I'm on the top 10 posters for this thread or close to it, I love Pink Floyd

    but yeah it shouldn't be all someone listens to. I had some dude I knew at uni who was always like "beatles or get out maaaan" and had all this beatles merch and never listened to anything else, was like shit dude, there's so much good music out there, listen to it

    My point is that it tends to happen a lot more with pink floyd and the beatles than any other band I know ever

    I've seen LOADS of them

    Yes, I've seen lots of people like this. But mainly for the Beatles, being what you said extremely obsessive and then there's the others who wear clothing or have posters dedicated to a band, but have actually never listed to them ever. That's another story.
