Pink Floyd is cool, I like the wall and dark side the best, but their other stuff is fun too. On a side note- several years ago some jackass stole my pink floyd box set from my car (along w/ about 100 other cds). One of the things I really thought was interesting was how frickn much dark side matches up with wizard of oz... too much to be a coincidence in my opinion ;/

If I had to pick a favorite tune it would be money.

I like Pink Floyd.  My father is huge a fan and has all of their albums, so I gave them a listen and was initially unimpressed.  I don't like their earlier albums, but the stuff they made in their heyday:  Particularly Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of the Moon are brilliant.  Shine on You Crazy Diamond is probably the best platonic love song ever made.   :)

Edited for stupidity.

Platonic, mrbase, not plutonic :) 

Heh.  That'll teach me not to post after immediately taking a nap.   ;D

Alright. The Floydians come out. I tend to like the mellow Floyd a lot more, and Meddle is one of my favorite albums because it is the epitome of the mellow Floyd sound. But when I feel like rocking, I put in Animals and crank it up. Dogs is such a great song.

I do agree with Imrahil that the sound isn't as good when David and Roger are not together (by either person), but I still dig Gilmour a lot. His voice hasn't lost any quality over the last 30+ years, which is great.

I love Floyd.  One of the first bands that I truly sank my teeth into in high school, when liking a band meant digging up every album, single, and rarity I could lay my hands on.  It's a lot easier (and cheaper) to do that sort of thing these days with the Internet, but somehow it's not nearly as fun.

I agree that the best Floyd is the collaborative Floyd.  I actually liked them best when Richard Wright would contribute a song or two (before he was apparently too doped up to be helpful.)  "Paint Box" and "Summer '68" are two of my favorite Floyd songs.

Even so, I do enjoy some of the solo output of Gilmour and Waters.  About Face and The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking are both good albums.  Not on the same plane as Floyd, but worth a listen.

Best Floyd, chronologically:

Piper at the Gates of Dawn
Atom Heart Mother
Animals
The Final Cut

The Final Cut is the last Pink Floyd album - the ones released under the name after that are by Pink Floyd band members trying to sound like Pink Floyd is "supposed" to sound (a.k.a. "cash-ins" - Nick Mason wasn't even really in the band at the time), rather than just making music as they feel like. That said, Gilmour's solo album from last year was surprisingly good - maybe because he didn't have to adhere to those expectations.

Waters solo is just muiscally too bland and uninventive to bother with. And as for the YouTube clips above, "Young Lust" has to be the worst song in the PF catalogue, with the possible exceptions of parts of More.

The Final Cut is the last Pink Floyd album

I would call The Final Cut the first Roger Waters solo album.  Waters dominates the album thematically, lyrically, and vocally.  And like the two supposed Floyd albums that followed (which, like you, I don't consider true Floyd albums), it was made without one of the founding members (Wright.)

You absolutely do have a point there, but when you compare it to the featurless tripe he put out solo, I would say that it's obviously a Floyd album musically, since it has more than three chords and one droning melody per song.

Yeah. Something as crazy and artful as 2001 goes great with the Floyd. Wizard of Oz on the other hand... I dunno... sync it up with some Yes?

You must have a different sense of art over in Sweden, Teaflax.

It looks a little something like this:                                             

Next time, don't quote me for something I didn't say. You make yourself look like a jackass.
