And I don't think he is joking, considering that he disagreed with killerteacup.
I'd prefer PF stuff, not members of PF's stuff
not really interested in barett enough to look up his other work at this stage
glad you see it my way
it's on my to do list, just not at the top
what is at the top, now that you've listened to most of the stuff you said you were already?
A Roger Waters collab....
with Eddie Van Halen.
Just gonna say that On the Run, Any Colour You Like, Great Gig in the Sky are all very prog in the way that they feel and in the context of the album, despite the fact that they don't change time signatures because pink floyd songs rarely do.
Fair enough with Great Gig In The Sky and Any Colour You Like, they're both definitely prog rock. Albeit not "very" as compared to something like Time imo.
But On The Run, is electronic music.
Money changes time signature, as does Welcome To The Machine:

It's fair to say that they weren't obvious in the progressive aspect.
What prog did was challenge music structures and enhance them with styles from outside the norm at the time.
Pink Floyd didn't concentrate a whole lot on that aspect, just kept with the mood and atmosphere.
That is until Animals and Wall.
Maybe that arguement up there was a bit pointless.
Moon is pretty much two medleys.
It wasn't an arguments, you just inquired about my to do list
Two conversations going on man. :>
Get yourself Madcap Laughs though, you'll like it.
I need help y'all.
I have in my possession:
-The Final Cut
-Wish You Were Here
What should I buy next? Should I venture into their solo stuff now?
GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!
So I'm planning on listening to Piper sometime today. After this I need Relics and More. I think I listened to The Final Cut but I can't remember all that well. I've been listening to too much Zappa for me to remember anything else.
Every time I hear Echoes, and the part beginning with the line "Strangers passing in the street, by chance do separate glances meet", I imagine such a scene occurring in an Industrial Revolution-era London. Like the knd you see in Sherlock Holmes.
I think this is an oddity and I realize that everyone has a different experience, but does anyone else do this?
This was supposed to be on the live disc of Ummagumma, but it was cut for an unknown reason.
I wonder what happened to all the lost Floyd demos and unofficial recordings.
So just now I started listening to The wall for the first time and it was really wierd because I could swear I'd heard the first song (in the flesh?) before, just different.
It plagued me all the way through and I could not think why because I was SURE I'd never heard the song before, at least not performed by pink floyd so I started thinking and realized Dream Theater made a cover of it on their album A change of seasons. I've been listening to Pink Floyd for years and not realizing it.
My mother played Shine On You Crazy Diamond when I was a little bitty kid. I didn't know what it was at the time.
Some time later I am discovering Pink Floyd. I still don't recognize the song, have not heard it since Mom played it. I go on Wikipedia, find a 30 second sample of a song called Shine On You Crazy Diamond. I remember thinking it had a long name.
The sample was of the four note guitar theme.
I shat myself with nostalgia and sudden realization.
For some reason, I have this distinct memory of going with my dad to Blockbuster Video (back when movie rentals was a thriving business) when I was about 5 or 6 and I saw an interesting-looking vhs cover of the movie up for rent. So I grabbed it and brought it up to my dad, and he said "no, no way. That's not for kids."
It was Pink Floyd's The Wall and it would be much much later until I would actually discover their music. At that point, I didn't even know what the hell the Floyd was or what The Wall was about. The cover just caught my eye. I can only imagine what would've happened if my dad had rented that for me to watch at that age.
I dunno, does this look like something a normal 5-6 year old would be interested in?
I wouldn't be interested. Kinda creepy for a little kid, iwo.
This bootleg fucking owns.
Guess the Pink Floyd songs:
Hooooo oooo, oooooo, oooo ooo oo oooo *insert first bar of Fade to Black by Metallica*
Undoubtably the most beautiful piano piece ever composed by Richard.
