Ive always wondered what genre Pink Floyd falls in. They have a lot of songs with a similar feel to them, yet no other band sounds like them. It's like they are a genre on their own.

SoulStripper7
05-20-2005, 06:18 PM
^^Well, they could be called Prog rock, psychadelic (NEVER will they be psychadelic with me, but they are with other people), and classic rock of course. Maybe art rock, depends on what you think is art rock.

RocknRoller26
05-20-2005, 06:30 PM
yeah, pink floyd was like the most artistic band, just look at their album covers, the special effects in their songs not to mention how they are live.

05-20-2005, 06:46 PM
If they're not given enough credit, is that why they're one of the biggest rock bands ever? I think DSotM sold like 25,000,000 albums in the U.S. or something. And if they do do a conecert, I really hope They get back with Roger Waters, and it'd be interesting if they got back with Syd Barret too, even though he's psycho or whatever.

SoulStripper7
05-20-2005, 06:57 PM
^^Getting back with Syd is virtually impossible. He doesn't go by Syd anymore, he doesn't play music, he doesn't talk to anyone who was associated with his past life. He did go mad and its not like crazy psycho killer mad or sit-in-your-room-and-watch-you-sleep mad or something. His affliction is really sad...I don't think we should upset him by asking if he wanted to do a Pink Floyd reunion.

since i've been into the floyd, i've always wondered what the world must look like to syd. is he just permanently tripping, or does he live in some sort of hellish nightmare? obviously he took things a little too far, but i think it would be interesting to see what actually goes on in his head. he kind of reminds me of the Colonel Kurtz character from Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now.

How did you ever get the idea they don't get credit?

LoL..They're little overshadowed by LedZep and Deep Purple,I know,because that's what was popular in the 70s and 80s,but Floyd still got the credit they deserved (Though it could always be more)

DSOTM sold like 20 million copies,and floyd had songs that stayed on the billboard for 700 weeks.

The problem began when the band disbanded,and every band member started doing their own concerts playing the songs from Pink Floyd.That's when people lost some interest.

Today,people may not like,or even know,Pink Floyd.But go back 2 decades and ask the same question.

You'll know your answer.

PINK FLOYD RULES!!!

You know that david gilmour was an incredible guitarist but he really couldn't show off or solo that much because he was more of the guy who wanted to solo anytime he could but roger waters was more of the dark depressed singer and that gave no time for soloing and that lead to waters leaving the band.


just thought that was interesting

BrainDamage
06-07-2005, 03:33 PM
^^thats not true at all. Gilmour didn't show off because he didn't need to. He had plenty of solos, look at Money, Time, Dogs, Pigs (3 Different Ones), Comfortably Numb, etc. His solos fit the songs well, they weren't meant to show off.

ibanezkid77

Well I listened to I think it was Another Brick in The Wall part 2. and I got HOOKED. Wish You Were Here after that. I go through like these little stages where I hear a song, listen to it 24 hours a day for 2 days and one time I forget to restart the song and the next song on the list comes on.


Rinse and repeat :)

egstam
06-08-2005, 10:57 PM
1. Dark Side Of The Moon
2. The Wall / Wish you were here
3. The Division Bell
4. Meddle
5. Atom Heart Mother
And so on...

Err, all of them are really good albums... :)

Also, David Gilmour - In Concert is as good as DSOTM.

django student
06-09-2005, 01:00 AM
the most amazing thing to me is how consistant they were. i've been trying to get a hold of all the lesser known albums they put out before dark side of the moon, and everything i've heard so far is right up there with the better known stuff in my opinion. a saucerful of secrets and meddle are two of those that i'd definately recommend.

JB Mate
06-09-2005, 01:34 AM
Yes. Wish You Were Here & Animals are IMO their best 2 albums

Mr Pink

what gives there are no tabs for anysongs on the division bell, one of the best albums!!!!!!

self-made_page
06-10-2005, 04:48 PM
^I'd hardly say that The Division Bell is one of the best (although it's my number 1 album art). I find the post-Waters era to be extremely lame compared to Waters. Also the music is less guitar-intensive, and the guitar parts don't all use basic chords. It would be pretty hard to tab all that out by ear.

so, so you think you can tell,

a smile from a veil?
do you think you can tell,
did they get you to trade,
your heroes for ghosts?
hot ashes for trees?
hot air for a cool breeze?
cold comfort for change?
and did you exchange,
a walk-on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage?

how, how i wish you were here.
were just two lost souls swimmin in a fish bowl,
year after year
running over the same old ground,
what have we found?

Some have brought me to tears , the feeling portaited in some of there guitar solos...........mind blowing and there messages are mind blowing too. The sole reason i ever picked up an elect guitar was from hearing CN outro .

A song i dont hear to much on in here is "On the turning away"

Actually I am pretty sure it's not about Syd. David Gilmour explained the meaning behind "Wish You were here" in the "Classic Albums - Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of Moon" DVD. He said after DSOTM came out Pink Floyd became this monster platnum band and were getting away from their true meaning of playing. He said we made Wish you were here because we weren't. Now, I am not sure if he mean't the album or just the song but since the album is named after the song I am betting that is what he mean't. So according to the writer of the song it wasn't about Syd. If you want to argue just buy the DVD.

Floyd is awesome but I think the once Roger Waters got a big head he started to suck incredibly. Has anyone heard his solo CD "Amused to Death" there isn't one good song on it. Yet Pink Floyd without Roger Waters is not much better "Division Bell" was a terrible CD, Gilmour is not the great at writing lyrics, although he can sing much better than Roger Waters. when their was equillibrium in the band they were great. They were great with Syd, unfortunately that didn't last very long, and will never happen again I don't Syd has touched a guitar or sang in like 30 years.

self-made_page
06-20-2005, 01:45 PM
I don't think The Division Bell is that bad, IMO A Momentary Lapse of Reason is a lot worse. The Division Bell has its high points in Coming Back to Life, Marooned, Lost For Words, Take It Back, High Hopes. But I agree that Dave is a second-rate (at best) lyricist.

Amused To Death is one of my favourite albums. Not a song on there that I don't like.

Roger had a big head from point one...and Pink Floyd was great with him.

Division Bell is a very good CD IMO, along with MLOR.

Im not a big Pink Floyd fan, not much of a fan at all actually, a crime that deserves castration some of you might say. Some of their fans are really pretentious though, they act so high and mighty because they claim that they 'get' them while others can't. The fascist-like nature of some of the fans ive met is partly the reason why ive never given Floyd a chance but if someone wants to recommend an album to get me started id appreciate it.

I started with The Wall, and I think it helped get my head around the Floyd, because there was so much to get. Dark Side of the Moon is good too, but if you want my opinion, Wish You Were Here is overrated. I'd say Animals rather than WYWH.

nobody i know even understands pink floyd(except my fifteen year old cousin), nor gives a crap about them.

(but i have to admit, its probably because i'm only 11, and my friends could care less about them.)

and yeah i agree that david deffinetly isnt as good a lyricist as roger, but i really like rogers voice, its not your typical brilliant voice, but he hits any note he needs and i like the was he talks/sings in songs like the gunners dream or southampton docks etc

I think Division Bell was a lot like MLOR. It sounded a lot like it. I feel Gilmour got bit by the 80's bug a bit. His post-Waters stuff was a lot of main sythesizer stuff. Very different.

I don't have Division Bell, but I do have Momentary Lapse of Reason. I don't really like MLoR that much, I dunno, maybe I should listen to it a little more...to me it wasn't *Pink Floyd*. I was listening to my dad's old albums yesterday, and I found Obscured By Clouds. Great album. Now that I've listened to it a few times, I can say that it is highly underrated.

The division bell is one of my fave albums atm, but the lyrics do suck compared to Roger's stuff. I really like the whole guitar part of the division bell, marroned, coming back to life, a great day for freedom etc. I think the Wall is a really good album, but not for first time listeners of Floyd, as it is a very aqquired taste lol. DSOTM and WYWH are good albums to start with.

Actually Roger did not have a big head at the outset, when Syd was the main performer of the band he was noticed the most because of his talent and looks. In fact when Gilmour joined the band everyone thought Gilmour would take over the band because he was a triple-threat (singing, songwriting, and guitar). Yet Roger Waters showed his talent and gradually became the main songwriter along with contributions from Rick Wright, David Gilmour, and once and awhile from Nick Mason. Yet Roger gradually got more and more songs on each album and began to sing more (because his lyrics most of the time suited Rogers voice better) so gradually he pushed aside the rest of the band from big contributions. In fact Roger Waters even kicked Rick Wright out of the band, because he didn't think Floyd needed Rick Wright, although Rick was obviously a huge contributor to Floyd's sound. Roger even made it clear that he would go on to a solo career cause he didn't think he needed Floyd to make a good album. In fact he gave Flod a choice "I've got two ideas The Wall and Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking you choose one and I'm doing the other one for my solo CD." Yet as he proved in his solo album his lyrics mean nothing without good music to accompany it. In fact even on his solo CD "The Pros and Cons of Hitchiking" the great Eric Clapton could not prevent that CD from being subpar. Therefore i believe Pink Floyd can only be good as a unit because without a essential part of the band they produce music that should dissapoint even them when you compare it to their great CD's (Dark Side of the Moon, Wish you were here, piper at the gates of daw, etc.)

Said Waters: "It's great to be asked to help Bob raise public awareness on the issues of third world debt and poverty. The cynics will scoff, screw 'em! Also, to be given the opportunity to put the band back together, even if it's only for a few numbers is a big bonus."

It wasn't about anybody's individual talent, but the way they came together as a group. they are doing live 8, so maybe roger finally understands this, but i doubt it.

Actually it was a group decision. Syd had gradually becoming a hinderance to the band, preventing them from reaching stardom because Syd was just a deadweight, even going so far as to standing on stage and strangely looking at his guitar as if he had never seen a guitar in his life before. So they brought in David Gilmour as backup guitar, and while David did all the work Syd just stood there (mainly acting as a a useless figurehead). In fact it took so much work to get him out of his drug infected house and to the concert that Floyd just got tired of doing it. So that one day they all realized they didn't want Syd in the band anymore, and it was Roger who actually voiced their discontent. But it was a group idea, Roger was the only one to voice their thoughts out loud.

I heard that When Syd became too screwed up to actually perform, He stayed back stage and wrote new material, while David performed in his place. That is why there was a lot of Barrat's work still going when Gilmour was in the band, e.g set your controls for the heart of the sun etc, written by Syd and Roger, guitar performed by David.

Syd also wrote Corporal Clegg on Saucer but he performed it the same as JugBand. But He also wrote Astronomy Domine which was on Ummagumma (But it was on Piper but he performed it on Piper but not on Ummagumma.) I think there is more but this is just from memory.

No you are wrong. Roger Waters wrote "Take up Thy Stethoscope and Walk." Dave also played guitar throughout Saucerful of Secrets, except for Juhband blues, and I believe it was Roger Waters who wrote Corporal Clegg, and includes the rare appearance of some Nick Mason vocals at the end of the song (mumbling). Although you may want to believe Syd wrote a lot of these songs, its not true. He was so out of it by he time Saucerful of secrets appeared that they unwillingly had to bring in David Gilmour as backup (because Syd was way too hard to work with). Yet if you want to hear some Syd Barrett written songs, check out the Early Singles or Dark Side of Pink Floyd (a compliation CD I found on Ebay for liek $6.00 from a store in Russia that contains most of the Early Singles along with some Pink Flyod studio outtakes).

I know theres 5 songs so could someone please go through the songs and tell me if there a soft song, a hard song or what other Floyd song it sounds like. I'll probably get Piper at the Gates of Dawn sometime. Whats the music like on this, since there was a different singer/guitar player/songwriter it had to have been different. Then I'll probably pick up Delicate Sound of Thunder. I believe thats the one with "On the turning away" and "Learning to Fly" on it. Is that a good one. What are other good CD's. And also what songs does David sing and which ones does Roger sing.

^^They're all hard songs except the first and last song on Animals. No floyd song sounds like another floyd song, so its kinda hard to describe what they sound like. Piper is very trippy and kinda psychadelic and very bizzare. Its good though.

Delicate Sound Of Thunder isn't a sstupid album though. If you want Learning To Fly and On The Turning Away, you'll want The Division Bell and A Momentary Laspe Of Reason (I think On The Turning Away is on this, but I'm not positive).

I'd get Saucerful of Secrets, thats a decent album. Its different, but its not bad.

He felt that since Animals and then moreso the Wall, he didn't contribute anything (which I think is totally untrue). I've heard that Waters and Gilmour question Mason's role and whether they really needed him.

Actually it was all Roger Waters fault. When they were recording (I believe the Wall) everyone recorded in turns; Nick Mason finished first, than Roger, than Dave. Yet when it was Rick Wrights turn to go he refused, because he was planning on going on summer vacation. Roger Waters got upset and wanted Rick Wright out of the band. So Rick Wright, rather than fight, decided to step down and just become a payed player for live shows, like Snowy White and Dick Parry. So he was officially kicked out of the band, and signed a contract that prevented him from rejoining the band. Thats why when Pink Flyod recorded Momentary Lapse of Reason they were not officially allowed to have Rick Wright in the band, so he was payed player but he contributed as much as any other "real" band member. He finally rejoined the band by the Divsion Bell recordings.

Edit: Nick Mason was a very lazy drummer though. In the Divsion Bell recordings he payed people to come in and play for him, or used a machine to do the beat.

Your mostly right. Except Gilmours and Mason didn't really help that much, the reason Waters took over so easily is because the other members of Pink Floyd tried as hard as they could to avoid confronting their problems. So when they noticed what Roger was doing they just kept playing, gradually losing their status and importance(in Roger's view) in the band. I'm pretty sure Gilmour and Mason didn't do much at all in helping resolve Rick Wrights problem, at least that's what Nick Mason said.

Another thing that happened around that time is that Roger and went to Nick and Rick and said (i paraphrase), 'ok here's the deal, I'm bringing in Bob Ezrin to come in and do the producing with me and Dave.' But Rick wanted to have a part in the producing, so Roger allowed him.
But he never contributed in the recording, essentially sitting there and being a producer. Eventually he was asked to step down from his producing duties.
Also the band had a schedule that said they would do their recording in the late spring and early summer. But Rick didn't get his started in time, and when he was told he would have to record during the summer vacation he refused point blank. Roger was shocked and confused by this, as i would have been if i was doing so much work and have others contribute so little.

I remember Dave saying that he and Nick agreed that Rick should be fired.

When Rick went on vacation, Roger told him to come back and finish his parts. Rick refused (I've heard him say this), and he was told that he was out of the band. Though he wanted to do the shows, which he enjoyed, but, as you all said, as a paid musician thats not with the band.

So when they noticed what Roger was doing they just kept playing, gradually losing their status and importance(in Roger's view) in the band. I'm pretty sure Gilmour and Mason didn't do much at all in helping resolve Rick Wrights problem, at least that's what Nick Mason said.

Not quite. Wright was actually a robot which malfunctioned while they were recording, so Waters reprogrammed him, slipping in a program to control Mason and Gilmours minds, thus allowing him to take over the band quite easlily. He then had the robot kill Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, steal knickers from clotheslines near his house, and destroy Bob Doles personality.

I remember Dave saying that he and Nick agreed that Rick should be fired. Wright said: "I fought my corner, Dave and Nick would say 'This is not right, we think its unfair.' When we had a meeting Roger said, 'Look either you leave or I'm not going to let you record my material for the Wall."

I agree.. Floyd is one of THE greatest of all times. Whether it is Mudmen, Saucerful of Secrets, Mom. Lapse, DSOTM, Meddle, See Emily Play, whatever, they were/are absolutely astounding.

I saw them only 3 times. On show #2, one guy I met in Lexington saw them for 4 shows in one week. He was doing a road trip, following them across 2 states... Said they re-arranged the songs for every show. No 2 were alike. Yes and Zep were like that.

I wish it were not true, but I don't believe a band like Pink Floyd will ever happen again. You can't pull magic out of a hat. One of a kind. I DO wish they would do a short reunion tour this year. Maybe do 10=12 songs at each show. Wouldn;t that be great?

Has anyone got the Knebworth 1990 concert with Floyd? DG put all the fx in his bag on Run Like Hell.. Best version I ever heard.

What is a shame is that RW had to go weird for so long. His voice and Dave G's were meant to sing together. Imagine the stuff they could have done in the last 20 years had they really tried to work it out. And worked together..

to get paid for the live shows.

I will close with one thought. Rick Wright is one of the most underrated and underappreciated keyboardists of all time. No one could do what he does. Dave tried Greg Dechart from pulsar for his live solo tours and Greg is very good. He is just no R Wright. Rick is just perfect for Floyd, and his prolific chord work, and leslie work is immaculate. Perfect. Shame Roger could not see this. Roger is a great bass player, composer and singer. Just has an edgy, quirky personality.

And for the record, I have read several books on P FLoyd that quoted Gilmour as saying R.Waters thrived on cutting people to shreds with his wicked wit. Richard took it too seriously, and it really, really hurt him. DG said Roger picked on RWright cause he was a nice guy and would not fight back. He was still in therapy in the 90s because of it, I have read.

Gilmour has said in more than a few books that he took it upon himself to rehabilitate Rick and Nicks egos after the bashing they got from Waters. When Floyd started touring in 87, Nick and Wright were not even wired into the mixers. It was only in the second month of the tour, when Gilmour heard Nick and Rick practicing before one concert, that he realized they had become their old competent selves, and were ready to get back to live performances-hence they were miked up and recorded for the very next show, per Daves instructions (for just one of many resources check: The COmplete Guide to Pink Floyd by Andy Mabbett. Omnibus Press, London, UK)

Oh man, I always knew Waters was somewhat mean, but I never knew it went that far! Now I'm even more suprised about how they got back together for Live 8! Its great how they could put aside all of that and still come together to play a great show. Anyone know if their relationships have improved since the concert?

This is fun, but pink floyd can be enjoyed when your sober. Same with the movie "the wall". Pink floyd contains amazing music that is usually not influenced by drugs (this might be hard to believe but it's true).
