I think I've got the most playtime with Wish You Were Here.

Fair enough, it's a great record.

Here's an interesting house mix of the title track if you've never heard it. SNBRN opened up one of his sets with it during quarantine and I've been a fan of it since.

Spoiler for when someone asks why I hate Shine on You Crazy Diamond so much:

Went through a serious Wall phase in high school that throws the game, but I've been consistently returning to Dark Side as a full album more.

I've found myself appreciating their A Momentary Lapse Of Reason album more in recent days, particularly the nice doing-cocaine-in-space vibe of Terminal Frost.

haha, yea, not gonna lie, sometimes i skip ahead to the good parts. but the long play is a mood.

The Wall, for me, has two of their best songs (Comfortably Numb, Hey You) and the rest I don't listen to. But holy **** they are good.

Not a great song but the massive riff from In the Flesh is some peak Floyd imo.

Actually before I started listening to them these couple of days ago High Hopes was my favourite song by Pink Floyd. I’ve had some great memories with it at the begining of high school. The sort of experiences that stay with you for the rest of your life.

I was checking out most of their discography really. I’m not the kind of person to throw judgements on weak or non-existing basis.

Even though I’ve come to appreciate them more these last couple of days, I still find their style a bit tiresome, and their songwriting pretty weak. Don’t get me wrong: they do write great stuff, it’s just that I think if you’d cut their 20min songs into 4-6min ones they’d be a much better listen and would still have time for the epic instrumentals and all.

But then again when I listened to The Wall - an album with only 2-4 minutes songs - in it’s entirety yesterday, I’ve come to realise that they are incapable of such stuff. If you take away the 15min epic solos and weird keyboard stuff, their material becomes dull. Yes, I believe The Wall is garbage (I mean, yeah, sure, Comfortably Numb is amazing [though I enjoyed it way more when I was 15 or so], and Another Brick In The Wall Part 1&2 are great, but the rest is pretty much nonsense to me).

The last 3 or 4 days I’ve listened to all of their albums at least twice (apart from The Final Cut, so far the ugly cover scares me away).
I really enjoyed Animals, DSOTM (obviously), Meddle, Obscured by Clouds (kind of) and two or three tracks from Ummagumma.
Oh, and Wish You Were Here is great. But that one I liked also before.

Though still most of Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother is pretty much unlistenable to me.

The big surprise for me was Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Which I loved in my Paris days, but when I re-listened to it yesterday I was unable to actually listen to the songs in full.

And really, even though my overall opinion of them had changed and I’ll actually listen to them on a more regular basis, my previous judgements of them are still valid for me. Those being these two:

1. They are the pretentious version of the Beatles (the comparison is for me in the chord progressions, melody making, and the feel of many arrangements. The pretentiousness is in the fact that they are incapable of actually writing a song that is not relying on amazing musical skills and always have to drag the songs to the point of no return)

2. The Dark Side of The Moon is for sure their best album (simply because they focus more on songwriting and songstructure rather than on showing off how good and long they can play. This is really the album that shows us how good Pink Floyd might’ve been)

3. They are a band who makes music that serves only lying on your back in a field and looking at the stars (impossible to read, cook, take a walk or do anything else for that matter, because the music is to busy and distracting [and I’m not saying this is a kind way])


But you know: Pink Floyd fans cheer! I’m no longer your enemy but an ally!
