        Floyd is the musical peak of the world to me. No band, in my experience, has ever been able to transcend all genres into one musical property that truly has no genre like they have. Spanning 20+ years before things fell apart, they managed to do things that were light years ahead of their time. Dark Side was recorded on a bunch of 4 tracks! WTF? There are pieces with 20-30 tracks of music that were pieced together with as many sounds and instruments as they could think of. It's an absolutely sickening amount of ingenuity and musical genius on display.

        Shine on You Crazy Diamond is their be all end all piece in my eyes. Put all the parts together and you will hear the most diverse and emotional music ever put down in the last 2 generations. Unfortunately...starting with Division Bell...things got sour really quick. Waters solo is OK, but I personally cannot stand Gilmour solo.

        I have seen each of them live, Waters twice. The shows are great and all, but they're missing the cohesion. Water's live guitarist can't fucking breath Gilmour's air, let alone play his music. From Gilmour's side, no Floyd sounds right without Roger's voice.

        If they ever, EVER get together before they get too old, I'd plunk down three bills a ticket...easily. Greatest of all time, IMO.....bar none.
        And you can call your gang, your posse and the rest of your crew.
        And while you're at it get them addicts and the indigent too.
        I plan to have a whole army by the time that I'm through
        to load their guns with songs they haven't sung

          nothing beats lighting a joint and listening to some floyd. Or eating a shitload of shrooms and watching the wall.

              I loves me some Pink Floyd. The albums I listen to most are Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, which is pretty typical of casual Floyd fans I guess. My two favorite songs are Wish You Were Here and Breathe (with the Breathe reprise from the end of Time being awesome, as well).

                Pink Floyd is my favorite band although Nine Inch Nails and Tool come in a close second and third. Favorite five cds:

                1. Animals
                2. The Wall
                3. Wish You Were Here
                4. Dark Side of The Moon
                5. Meddle

                Hard to leave A Saucerful of Secrets and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn off that list though. The Final Cut is very underrated as well.....solid cd.

                Roger Waters is just a very brilliant musician. I've seen him live the last couple summers and he still blows me away. I got to see Pink Floyd three times on the 94 tour which I'm very happy to be able to say. Some of the best concert experiences come from the Floyd and Waters shows.

                I enjoy all of the solo efforts too but like Waters and Barrett's works more than Gilmour's. Live at Pompeii is a beloved DVD and I watch it often. Love The Wall and wish I could have seen it on the big screen. Love the Gilmour live DVDs as well. Not that big of a fan of Pulse or The Delicate Sound of Thunder sadly. Too much missing with Waters not playing with them and I wasn't too wild on the last two Floyd releases without Waters (although they are still solid cds).

                  Pink Floyd is my favorite band.
                  As far as albums go: either the Wall or Meddle.
                  Favorite song: Echoes
                  Favorite member: David Gilmore


                  I love love love live at Pompeii... it helps me sleep at night.

                  I use to drop a lot of acid and sit around listening to the Wall over and over... ah youthful days in Louisiana.

                    Yeah Pink Floyd is pretty much the best band ever. I love 'Dogs' even though it's like 18 minutes long. Still Dark Side of the Moon is my fave cd to chill to

                        Playing Echoes with the last act of 2001: A Space Odyssey is much much much better.

                          Waters is doing some touring in the western part of the US right now then the UK and a few other places. I hope he comes back to the east coast in the US this summer. I've seen him multiple times the last couple summers and would love to see him again. Always an outstanding show and I didn't think he'd tour again this summer so pretty excited.

                            Is there anyone besides me that prefers the "Experiemental Era" of Floyd better than their other albums which are praised to death? I'm talking about albums like Atom Heart Mother (my favorite Floyd album by far!), Ummagumma, Obscured By Clouds, and even a lot of their bootleg material from that age. Totally a lot more trippier and psychedelic than WWYH, DSOTM, or Animals. It's the side of Floyd most people don't know of unless your an actual fan...

                            It pisses me off when people who listen to Floyd and I ask them if they heard any of the old stuff, and they reply saying, "What? Like Dark Side Of The Moon or Meddle?" FUCK YOU!

                              I'm still new to Pink Floyd myself, but I do know this: The Wall is possibly the greatest album I will ever hear. It's amazing and really all I need to know about Pink Floyd, I think.

                                I've never heard of that one. Everyone keeps telling me that Dark Side of the Moon lines up perfectly with the Wizard of Oz around the same time the lion roars or so for that one movie studio...

                                I'll have to include 2001: A Space Odyssey as well now. Is there a place in the movie to line it up to?
