No problem. Smile You might want to pick up the 2004 reissue; it has a song called "When The Tigers Broke Free" that wasn't on the original album, and the rest of the tracks are remastered. Stunning.


When I first heard "When The Tigers Broke Free",
it was played to promote The Final Cut. (Other Known As: The Wall- part 2,
since Waters said in an interview that it was a continuation of his dedication to his father whom fought in WW2.)
WTTBF then dissapeared from the airwaves a while until after The Final Cut was released.
(Note: The Final Cut was named so because the band, er... Waters,
planned on that being the final album by Pink Floyd)

My favorite? A toss-up between Dark Side Of The Moon and Meddle (love "Echoes"), with Wish You Were Here a close second.

dlb, I recommend The Final Cut and Wish You Were Here.

LM, I agree with the first post of the thread. (Although I wouldn't say "by far," and, if it took much deliberation, I doubt you do either, eh. Smile) My favorite song of theirs is Wish You Were Here. I mean, how cool is:
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain


Damn!!!

However, The Final Cut is my favorite album of theirs. Very raw!

LM: I am a huge fan of Hitchiking. it is very cohsive, with outstanding guitar by Clapton. the dream sequence really works as a concept, and the ending can bring tears. it is a very adult work. ANimals is a great angry record, sharing the same feelings as the punks who would dominate the music scene for a few too-brief years.

but I really love Barrett's stuff. he has influenced my writing greatly. but while i enjoy Piper, I really prefer Syd's solo stuff.

my favorite Floyd period is between Saucer and Dark Side. when the band was trying different things. doing sound tracks and really experimenting. Echoes, Fat Old Sun, Biding My Time, Childhood's End, Give Birth To A Smile are the best examples. you can track the progression that would lead them to Dark Side.

sgt,

I agree with you about Hitchhiking, and Animals is a prophetic record.

As for Atom Heart Mother, I don't think I gave it much of a chance. I tried though, really. I only liked "Fat Old Sun," "If," and "Summer '69" is alright. That may be most of the songs, but it's the first and last tracks that I can't stand.

I like Atom Heart as a song, Funky Dung I would like to hear expanded. but it isn't a classic because the Floyd didn't finish it. they dumped it on Geesin's lap and he did the best he could. but they should have toured with it first and worked out the problems. the Breakfast song is twaddle.

I have heard a boot of Dark Side and Time started out slower with Rick and Dave singing all the parts.

Right, the 'song' Atom Heart Mother is what I enjoy, the rest of the album I can give or take.

But, nothing (except seeing Floyd live) beats going to a Saturday night laser light show in the local plantarium in the 1970's and watching the display to Echoes...

The Momentary Lapse tour was better than Division Bell? I've only seen the latter--and I was BLOWN AWAY--so I can't compare. But if ML was better, man, I'm drooling just thinking about it. I really missed out. What ever happened to that reunion tour? Did that fall apart?

The Pulse DVD is already out, btw. I plan on picking it up this weekend.

As for Floyd's best album . . . I'm going to have to be boring and say The Wall. However, I really love Animals. But I can't stop listening to my DSOTM super-audio CD in high resolution surround sound. Seriously, this is the only way to listen to Dark Side. Supposedly, more PF albums are coming out in SACD format. If you haven't taken the plunge and bought a SACD player, well, you're just not serious about music now, are you? Smile (Okay, mine is a low-end, used Pioneer player I picked up for less than $100, so I can't really brag. It's not like I'm going to spend $2000 on a Denon universal player any time soon.)

An exciting bit from an Amazon review of the Pulse DVD: ". . . and the concert-only audio choice between a 448kbps audio bitstream or a higher-quality 640kbps stream for higher-quality DVD players. The system set-up feature ensures that audiophiles will achieve optimum speaker performance in keeping with Pink Floyd's exacting technical standards. In tandem with the superior concert presentation, these features make Pulse one of the best--if not the best--music DVDs of 2006, guaranteed to satisfy Floyd fans for many years to come. "

The ML tour was (IMO) far superior to the DB tour. Then again, I saw them 3 times on the ML tour and only once on the DB tour.

I saw them twice on the DB tour: Nashville and Indianapolis. While the Nashville show was transcendent, the Indy show seemed like they were just going through the motions. I kept hearing Gilmour's guitar waft through the surround-sound and thought, "That's just sonic masturbation. He's only messing with the trippers."

I'm not sure what the difference was between the two shows. On the one hand, the first show was like angels had descended from heaven to play us some music unlike we'd ever heard. On the other hand, the 2nd show just sounded tired. So maybe you caught a bad show. Or maybe you weren't tripping. Very Happy

Definately wasn't tripping. The DB tour was good, but all 3 shows on the ML tour just knocked me off my feet. My favorite song on ML is Sorrow, and Gilmour poured so much emotion into the vocals and the nearly obscene outro guitar solo....I mean, it was moving. Not only that, I was blessed to be sitting right in front and to the right of the backup singers, so when the bed blew up, it blew up right next to me.

Exploding beds?! Oh, right, it's a Floyd concert.

If I had a time machine, I'd definitely love to see Floyd performing pre-Dark Side, when folks still thought of them as the Gods of London's underground. A smaller venue is just more appealing/intimate to me. They also had that whole quadraphonic trickery going around the entire room, so stuff sounded like it was behind and above you.

Okay, I saw Floyd on the first "we got the band back together tour) (which I guess was ML, but DSOT was out at the same time, no?).

Here's the interesting bit. I was on the floor of Sullivan/Foxboro Stadium so I could be closer to the stage. During One of These Days (wasn't it?) the flying pig got stuck on the cable, right out over the audience. Then it sort of deflated about half-way, sagging. PF, of course, just played on.

I think it was there for one or two more songs. Then -- and this is most unfortunate -- they actually sent a guy out over the wire to rescue the pig. Now he's about 100 feet off the ground, right above the center of the crowd on the floor. He's got some sort of gear that he can pull himself ... slowly ... along ... the ... wire.

Needless to say, at this point the crowd was cheering the guy more than they're appreciating the concert. The unfortunate part -- this is when they decide to play The Great Gig in the Sky. Apropos, you might think! Except that is one of those pieces that you'd like to listen to. So that pretty much ruined one of my favorite PF songs. (She had a good voice, too. Unlike the guy they found to play saxaphone in Terminal Frost!)

So, while enjoyed the light show very much - especially the rather menacing robot things coming out of the floor - that one bit was kind of a let down.

Of course, 18 (?) years later ... it's the part I remember!

Edit: Don't remember the bed blowing up ... Are you sure that was part of the show? Wink
