    speaking of flaws, I always thought DSOTM was less fun to analyse and talk about because it was such a flawless, solid album. Somehow that made it a little less to me than the other albums because there's nothing to say about, and everyone knows how great it is.
    That's because it's a great album.

    With some of their work, you have to change mindset to enjoy it. With Moon, it does all the work :)

    Listening to DSOTM in its entirety for the first time (never really listened to a whole lot before, and I've only heard 3 or 4 songs on here)

    Hope it's as mind blowing as people say it is.

    Edited:

    Huh, apparently went through 1-3 without knowing it.

    They really made it flow well, the transitions are godlike.

    Just listened to it on my way home, was pouring with rain and I got goosebumps when Rick Wright started singing his bit on "Time". Such an amazing track.

    Animals and Wish You Were Here are perfect examples of the bookending effect. I can't think of any other albums that utilise it, though.

    Albums that do a reprise are quite common.

    It's not like a lot of musicians where they decided they didn't want to go on with a song, and just randomly fade out.

    Dream Theater's Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory does this with the first five tracks, they just go right into each other. I <3 concept albums.

    Everyone tells me Dream Theater is great, and I can't stand metal, prog or not.

    You know I kinda dislike that attitude, you can't just put your favorite album on repeat over and over.

    The worst thing in the world, is seeing my sister put the mainstream-as-fuck song-of-the-week on repeat, just the one song. How the FUCK can you stand it after the second time? It completely sucks all value from it.

    You're not quite as bad but I wouldn't want to repeat a Floyd album immediately afterward.

    People are different and others take a lot longer to get bored of things. There are some people who watch a movie, and then decide to watch it again right after. I could never do that. I have an issue seeing a movie two times in a year, unless there is something I don't understand.

    A lot of Pink Floyd albums are really cool in that the more you listen the more you notice, and the song actually sounds different. It's nothing close to The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady though, each time I listen to that album I feel like I'm listening to something I've never heard before, with the exception of that awful guitar part.

    For me, a Pink Floyd album is so coherent it's like a movie in itself.

    Anyway, I must go to bed, as I have Tubular Bells stuck in my head.

    When I first discovered Electric Light Orchestra, I listened to Mr. Blue Sky around 75 times in a row.

    Loved it every time. Once I get my new headphones (Sennheiser HD518s are good, right?) I'm going to dig some more Floyd.

    Edited:

    Oh, and I heard an interesting theory the other day. Someone said DSOTM only got popular because when it was released it was the "go to stoner album". Thoughts?

    How about let people listen to what they want. Elitism ain't cool.

    Well yeah. You'd be foolish to say that it wasn't a cult album at such a scale because you could experience "being stoned".

    Those resonances in the wah-wah are mostly why it works.

    A lot of people say that all these progressive rock old bands are for doing drugs to.

    People don't realise that it's just like all other music. It can be made awesome with or with out the influence of drugs, and can be enjoyed with or without the influence of drugs.

    Ie;
    The Beatles did a shitload of drugs, creating pretty normal music, yet anyone in their fanbase could be stone cold sober 24/7 or stoned 24/7
    Tangerine Dream's main man Edgar Froese, however has never done any drugs, creating psychedelic as fuck music, and yet again anyone in their fanbase could be stone cold sober 24/7 or stoned 24/7

    Point being Pink Floyd could have done all their stuff baked, on acid, or completely clean, and you can enjoy it baked, on acid, or completely clean. Just in different ways.

    Depends how your current taste is.

    If you like progressive songs that are diverse and change in directions, go for Animals or Wish You Were Here.

    Otherwise go for Dark Side of the Moon or Wall. Those are quite accessible.

    Dark Side of the Moon. I consider it to be the most accessible. To put it this way, the average person is more likely to get into DSOTM than they are to Animals. Wish You Were Here would also be a good place to start granted that you don't mind long songs that are very instrumental. I know someone is going to suggest Meddle, but I really wouldn't suggest that as a first album.
