  1. I've been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd lately and I was wondering what some of your favorite PF albums were. Mine is Wish You Were Here, that is by my definition a PERFECT album.

    Wish You Were Here is absolutely great.
     
  6. I love them all equally! I couldnt choose! So I chose 'The Wall' because it has twice as much Floyd as the others. But every album is great. Relics is an awesome compilation album to, its like a 'best of' of the psychadelic period.
    'Is There Anybody Out There: The Wall Live' is IMO, much better then Pulse.

  7. D'oh!

    As much as I love stuff from various albums, WYWH has always held a coveted spot.
     
  10. Thanks, Dancehallclasher. Some people said Pulse, so I guess put that one on. Oh yeah, I got the London Calling and it's really good, thanks for the reccomendation!
     
  11. Dont forget 'Relics' people! Its a great album! The early singles that arent on any of the other albums are great.

    Im very interested in what any other Pink Floyd fans think of 'A Momentary Lapse Of Reason' and 'The Devision Bell'?
    A lot of people put them down because without Roger Waters it isnt the 'real' Pink Floyd, but personally I think they are brilliant! I think 'The Devision Bell' is up there with the best of Pink Floyd from any period.

    Is it just me, or was that band blessed with excessive talent? The first singer/songwriter, who was brilliant goes nuts and leaves, so the bassplayer steps up to the plate to become one of the greatest singer/songwriters in rock history, he leaves to go solo, so then the guitarist takes charge revealing himself to be just as good! What other band ever possessed so much talent!

    You can add as many options as you want to a poll, but you only get two fields to enter them in, so you have to keep going back. Have a look at the "Best Amp" poll in Amps to see how many can be added! :eek:

    By the way, it's got to be The Wall for me, though Wish You Were Here? and Piper At The Gates Of Dawn come pretty close.
     
  13. ok, one big-ass poll, coming up...

    i chose piper. i love them when they sounded all trippy and poppy.
     
  15. This is slightly off topic, but I was wondering what everyone thought of the movie "Pink Floyd: The Wall". I thought it was really disturbing, but great at the same time. Opinions?
     
  16. I agree, I thought it was brilliant, like the work of an insane genius. Its like a car accident, very difficult to watch and very disturbing, but you cant turn your eyes away. More art then a movie. I thought it captured the feeling of the album very well too. Love all those twisted animations like the walking hammers and the trial.
    Jim
     
  17. Yeah, it was very good at giving the visual aspect of the album. Very symbolic, too.

    geldof does a good job in the movie, butr i always felt the movie and the album were greatly overrated.

    I thought the film wasn't too bad - it matched the album's intesity and mood, and Bob Geldof did well in quite a difficult role. Saying that though, it didn't really stand alone from the album particularly - it was more like a video for an entire record than it was a film.

    they should have put the album out with geldof's vocals. much more intense and emotional
