So King Crimson made the greatest Pink Floyd album. I wonder if that ever was a source of tension in the band.

it was probably in an alternate universe where Fripp hooked up with Waters, instead of Gilmour

High Hopes off Division Bells is one of the greatest Pink Floyd songs in my opinion, and a great sort of farewell to the fans, it being their last studio album and all.

About The Wall, I love pretty much all of it. It is a bit morose and depressing as Satch points out, but I quite like the depressing bits - f.ex the sad, desperate loneliness of Don't Leave Me Now.

edit :

This is awesome.



Sorry for the late reply but I can call myself a Pink Floyd fan because I like their music, just because I don't like two of their albums means I can't be a Floyd fan? Look at Frank Zappa, look at all the albums he realized. If you were to hate just one of them, you wouldn't be a Zappa fan? If that's the case. Very little people would be fans. Besides, The Division Bell sucked. No Roger Waters? Get out of here. Gilmour is great but honestly no Roger Waters is basically no Pink Floyd, I know that's they said about Barrett but they managed to pull it off. In this case, they didn't pull it off.

I'm not usually a massive music critique but when it comes to my favourite bands I have a certain expectation when it comes to their music. Earlier stuff is absolutely gorgeous. But continuing on from there they got a bit topsy turvy. You could say I'm more of a Syd Barrett fan because I prefer his solo albums to many Pink Floyd albums, but I do love Animals and Wish You Were Here.

Goodbye Blue Sky is also my favourite song from The Wall after listening to it again.

I dislike A Momentary Lapse Of Reason as well because Roger Waters cocky attitude got the better of him. But to have no Waters all.... Just.. No.

Somebody has just had a momentary lapse of reason.

Personally I think when Roger Waters became too dominant in the band, they suffered which is why I think their later more dominant Roger Waters albums are quite boring at times.

Rolling Stone normally spends its time running down albums, only to change their minds about those same albums ten years later and put them into one of their greatest albums list. How can anybody really take the critique of that mag seriously.

I really do think Piper at the Gates of Dawn gets overlooked often. Syd Barrett is pretty underrated as a guitarist, mostly thanks to Gilmore. Their psychedelic qualities and song writing abilities here are fantastic. Something I'd listen to when in a daze. I do like their later stuff but Piper is a lot more fun.

Overlooked!!! Most people on here go on like its the best album ever from the 1960s and most review sites go on about how great it is as well. It's one of the most overrated albums in the history of rock.

Syd Barrett a great guitarist, well I suppose if you consider noodling great then he was.
