That's what I'm saying, you're a fan. For how long really isn't important to me though. You hear a magnificent album. We're calling it what it is, dull and a sorry excuse for a final album. It's like they didn't even try. I know what the album is and what it is comprised of, whatever. Instead of an album of all new material, they reworked old songs they had laying around, and put it out there like, here you go. Sorry there, Pink Floyd. This is a half ass album.

It's all good though. If you are satisfied with it. Good on you.

I'm a fan of all sorts of music bud. I have 7000+ albums and some of Pink Floyd's albums don't even rock my boat. Personally I think this is a superb album and again, that's only my opinion. Fan or no fan.
No idea why you are getting so worked up mate?

I feared you may think I was getting worked up, I assure you I am calm and composed. I'm just putting out there my views on the album, all the while not agreeing with your opinion of it, so I think this is a pretty tame and normal conversation from my perspective.

What kind of albums you got in that collection of yours?

No worries mate

I'm still finding my way around the forum. Is there a good place where I could post my music lists?

I'd recommend posting a journal in the members journal part of the forum. I think you need a minimum of 50 or 100 posts to make one, which may sound like a lot but I reached 100 rather fast.

But yeah, members journal area when you're able to post a journal, write one out with detail on what you intend to use it for. You can look at member journals right now to get an idea on how to go about it.

That's great. These look like good places to talk about very much anything. I'll get posting! Thanks

It's not as objective as you make it out to be. Ja coming to the conclusion that it's a boring and phoned in album is an easy thing to do, but I can imagine some non Floyd fans could dig the record as well.

Brave newcomer, Floydy, who goes against the flow with your enthusiasm for this album! but yes, MB is a great place for swapping views - in fact we rather thrive on contrary opinions, so I hope you stick around.

Perhaps Im not doing the album full justice, as Ive only heard six minutes of Its what we do, but Im already overwhelmed with a soporific sense of deja vu. What sad irony that a band which was once a by-word for innovative music has chosen to lock itself into such a depressingly retro style.

(My apologies if I dent in any way your own perfectly valid enthusiasm, Floydy. Enjoy what your heart tells you to, and dont worry about tedious wet blankets on the internet, ok?)

The album is good when you compare it to other releases, but it is not even close to being what they're capable of.

I'd give it a 5.5/10...
^ Sorry to sound pedantic, ContrivedN, but I have to wonder what this means - translated from what to what ?!
