Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd will always be one of my favorite bands ever.  I have always known about them, but it wasn't until the first time I got high where I really started to enjoy them.  As stereotypical as it seems, Pink Floyd is definitely a stoner band.  I don't know what it is about them.  I will forever think that Pink Floyd was way ahead of their time back when they were going strong.  Although I appreciate the work that Syd Barret did with the Floyd, their earliest material is not my favorite... nor is their later material which seems to be very centered around Roger Waters.  My favorite albums were from the middle stages for the Floyd.  That's right I'm talking about Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals, Meddle, and Obscured by Clouds.

My favorite album by Pink Floyd is always changing, but right now I would have to say it is Wish You Were Here.  I love the fact that the album starts with Shine On You Crazy Diamond, transfers into 3 different songs, then goes right back to Shine On for the finish.

As a musician, I always can find respect for the instrumentals in the band.  May it be David Gilmour's flawless guitar solos or Nick Mason's on beat drumming, I am always impressed.  I also admire them as music composers, their progressive tracks which seem like they last forever are amazingly written.

Well, that's it about the Floyd for now.  I will post on more favorite artists/other things that happen in my life, STAY TUNED!

  6. Wish You Were Here is a really great album, my favourite track is the title track, also one of the first pieces I learned to play on guitar (although my intro bit doesn't sound as good as the record :D)

  16. I think Wall, sure Dark Side has great songs, but the Wall has an incredible story and is the best out-together and composed album of all time.
