Another early Floyd favorite, from THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN.

CHAPTER 24
(Written by Syd Barrett)

A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one
Change returns success
Going and coming without error
Action brings good fortune
Sunset

The time is with the month of winter solstice
When the change is due to come
Thunder in the other course of heaven
Things cannot be destroyed once and for all
Change returns success
Going and coming without error
Action brings good fortune
Sunset, sunrise

A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one
Change returns success
Going and coming without error
Action brings good fortune
Sunset, sunrise, sunrise, sunset

This is probably my favorite track from the A Momentary Lapse Of Reason album.

ONE SLIP
(Written by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera)

A restless eye across a weary room
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin
The music played and played as we whirled without end
No hint, no word her honour to defend

I will, I will she sighed to my request
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test
Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire
I lead the way to the funeral pyre
And without a thought of the consequence
I gave in to my decadence

One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you won't forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove?
The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown
The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone

One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you will never forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

And, of course...

TIME
(Written by Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, David Gilmour)

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

I saw David Gilmour a few weeks ago when he came through Chicago. The show was amazing! He played "Time" during the encore, along with many other PF classics - but the highlight for me, suprisingly, was "Fat Old Sun."

All phases of Pink Floyd's career have songs that I like. It would be hard to choose a favorite album, but I guess that I like Wish You Were Here the very best, because of its many beautiful keyboard and guitar melodies.



Its definitely one of my favorites of all time. When I'm waxing nostalgic and remembering some old friends of mine that passed on, I will sit back with a cold beer and listen to this.

I also find it hard to get "The Trial" out of my head when I listen to it. I was mowing grass listening to the album The Wall this weekend and after hearing the Trial it was just stuck in my head for hours.

Good morning, Worm your honor.
The crown will plainly show
The prisoner who now stands before you
Was caught red-handed showing feelings
Showing feelings of an almost human nature;
This will not do.
Call the schoolmaster!!!

I can't remember if I said this already, but I like Animals the best. The Wall is a masterpiece and DSotM has their best songs, but for me Animals hits the sweet spot between weird, epic, and accessible.

Agree, and "Dogs" is one of their best tracks. However, I rarely listen to "Pigs," and only occasionally listen to "Sheep." Too much Roger for me.

WYWH is still my favorite PF album; it's the closest they came to perfection, IMO. I love DSOTM also.

I never listen to "The Wall." I prefer the live versions from it that were included on "PULSE."

Apart from almost getting my ass kicked, the David Gilmour concert was amazing. I wish I could have seen him again.

"Pigs" is indeed very Roger, but I love David's guitar work on it. The outro solo is so simple but so amazing. "Dogs" is absolutely one of their best.

It's funny, The Wall is a truly great record (I started a thread about it a couple years ago), but I rarely listen to it or anything from it unless it comes up on either Pulse or TDSoT. I'm firmly in the WYWH camp.

I used to listen to almost all Floyd at one stage, but these days I generally oscillate between Wish you Were Here, Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and The Final Cut.

Haven't listened to Animals in a long time, but I loved Pigs on the Wing Parts 1 & 2, and Dogs in particular.

It's hard to pick a favourite because DSotM, WYWH, and the Wall could all be my favourites for different reasons, and different moods. If I had to pick one, it would probably be WYWH - Shine on You Crazy Diamond is the perfect start to a great album.

I finally got around to listening to their "new" album, The Endless River.

It's a tribute to Rick Wright by David Gilmour and Nick Mason, and it sounds like reworked off-cuts of music rejected from WYWH and earlier albums, mashed together, without the focus of Roger Waters' involvement.

Each song flows into each other as it meanders along with pleasant guitar and keyboards - it works quite well as an overall album. I find it a little sad that this is their farewell - more of an ambient fade out to nothing than a triumphant farewell. That gives me more of a sighing, sagging feeling than a "yes, this was the greatest band of its time!" response. I suppose it probably fits the remaining members' personalities, that sort of hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way mentality. It also reinforces in my mind that Pink Floyd without Roger Waters lacks the emotional bite and focus that keeps me interested.

Unfortunately, I think that Roger needs David, and David needs Roger to really make the magic happen. That's never going to happen again. However, this album did spark enough interest to go back and listen to some older Floyd. I listened to "Roger Waters: The Wall" live from 2014 or 2015. It is an incredible concert but there's something about Gilmour's guitar work that other equally amazing guitarists just can't copy. However, The Wall is seriously one of the great albums of all time. Each song is incredibly well written (lyrics are sublime) and the story flows from song to song, develops and climaxes with a focus that a Water-less (get it Very Happy ) Floyd has never been able to repeat.

Give me 70s Floyd - the pinnacle of their achievements! Dark Side of the Moon, Wish you Were Here, Animals and The Wall, and I'm content!

I find it weird that I haven't weighed in on this. I absolutely worshipped the Wall when I was younger. I was a sad bastard and if I watched the movie with anyone, there was to be a strict no talking rule.
I've since cheered up.
So I came into Pink Floyd by means of the Wall, which originally was because of my now least favorite song (Another Brick In The Wall Part 2). As a kid in elementary school in the 70's, yes, this was an anthem, and one I just find dumb now. But I get it. I bought the single, but liked "One Of My Turns" more, which was the B side.
I saw the film with my sister, whose reaction was the 80's version of "meh," and said it was all obvious symbolism and metaphor. Me in middle school embraced the shit out of it and had never listed to the album before. I got the album and that's all I listed to for a while, which of course put me in a funk.
About high school, my new stepfather had a bunch of Pink Floyd albums, so I started catching up with some of their other albums (which is weird that I wouldn't have bought more before then). I found myself not liking the psychedelic stuff much, and only liking the more Waters-like songs from WYWH, and didn't like Dark Side at all. The only other album that I truly liked from them was Animals, and it still seems like such an October album. It sounds good the rest of the year, but not as much so as in the autumn. In fact, I'm going to have to bust it out again.
I bought The Final Cut in high school as well, and felt it was such a follow-up to the Wall that I wondered why I waited so long for it. I embraced it hard, but nowadays, while I'm very impressed by some of its technical stuff, the writing seems pretty heavy handed. Though I do enjoy it whenever I listen to it.
In college, I enjoyed some of the earlier stuff more and David Gilmour's solo stuff more, making more sense of what his sound was and the mesh with the other strong elements on the albums that I liked, but it never blew me away.
About 10 years ago, I heard the Rebuilding the Wall by Luther Wright and the Wrongs (a bluegrass version of the Wall), and it made me realize what great music the Wall is. And I found at the library the first Waters solo thing The Fine Art of Hitchhiking (?), and found it repellent. So I'd rank my faves as the Wall, then Animals, The Final Cut (2 and 3 change places depending on the time of year), and then Wish You Were Here, and I don't care about the rest.

I was a sad obsessive bastard too Very Happy

I used to listen to Obscured by Clouds a fair bit. I can only remember a few of the songs, but from memory there are some real gems - here's a couple:

Wots...uh the deal - live

Free Four

Dark Side of the Moon takes a bit more listening to get into, but there are some songs on it that still mildly blow my mind - Great Gig in the Sky, Brain Damage and Eclipse, Us and Them, Time, Money, On the Run...

I used to listen to these two obsessively with the headphones on when I was supposed to be doing my homework:

Brain Damage/Eclipse

And here's a live version of it with Any Colour you Like included:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiimzQ0KqBA

Dark Side of the Moon takes patience, but as an overall album it is a revelation. The backing vocals on Brain Damage/Eclipse still give me goose bumps.

After The Wall, it became completely Waters dominated with The Final Cut which I like, but it is too much Waters really, and then it's all Gilmour, Wright and Mason with Momentary Lapse, and Division Bell. These also have their merits, great music, melodies, terrible lyrics for the most part - some great songs in there. Same with Roger Waters' solo albums - same absolutely brilliant songs, but generally too much Waters.

Nearest show to me is the Tacoma Dome. Uncertain if there are other fans in the house who would want to make the drive down. If I can manage to win a pair of tickets off one of the stations in the area giving a pair away, I would see who would want to go.

Roger's staging of the wall was brilliant (the only show with Roger I've seen; I'm pretty sure he was not a part of the A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour I saw in the Orange Bowl), and I know sarge loved the other shows he's seen, but I don't know if I would want to buy tickets for him.

I saw Roger Waters perform the Wall album a few years ago. I'm a little jealous that it's currently just a US tour Very Happy It's hard to top a Roger Waters show.

I'm so glad you saw The Wall, Stevie! I seem to recall really encouraging you to go after I saw it.
