Please tell me you haven't stopped reviewing Floyd? I'd really like to see a review of Animals.

Please review Animals, the song "dogs" has been on repeat for me recently, I think it might be my favorite of theirs

Floyd after Syd is more preferable for me.

I'm not accusing anybody of plagiarism or anything, but surely I cannot be the only one hearing the similarity between the sung portion of "Echoes" and The Beatles' "Across the Universe"? This jumped out at me the first time I heard Echoes.

I always felt that Animals was the band's attempt to "do one for the fans", as though they were trying to please some of the people who might have felt left behind by the lush ambience of DSOTM and the fairly mellow sound (for the most part) of WYWH. It sounds out of place where it is in the chronology, but it would not have sounded so out of place had it been released, say, just prior to meddle.

I agree. Despite some good musical moments, I hate the negativity that runs through the whole thing and poisons it.

The Division Bell does not quite reach the heights of DSOTM, but I consider it a great album. There are a couple of tracks i find fairly ordinary: "Wearing the Inside Out" and "Great Day For Freedom", and one - "What Do You Want from Me" that is fine except that it's too much like "Have a Cigar". The rest? Great stuff. And I admit to occasionally getting chills from the intro to "Keep Talking". "High Hopes" is also a fine closer.

OK, I have now read VERY quickly through this whole thread and i have to say that while I have some minor disagreements about individual songs, by and large I concur with the relative assessments of the albums.

Will there be a review forthcoming of The Endless River?

Sorry, I thought I was doing the right thing by making a separate post to reply to each review rather than one long post.

I also did not realise how dormant this thread was.

Which One's Pink is a killer LA based PF tribute band, I've known one of them from back in the days of newsgroups (remember those?)
