    Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    I'm thinking of maybe "buying"in to the pink floyd thing and picking up an album today...

    Are they that good? and which album should I buy?

    Yes, they are that good. Buy The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, load your bong, and have at it.

    Re: Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    Yes, they really are that good.

    Start with The Dark Side of The Moon, probably the best album ever recorded, Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds nonwithstanding.

    From there, you may jump forward to the Wall, but I would suggest you jump backwards instead to Meddle. And although many overlook Animals, it has some of my favorite work (as does the Delicate Sound of Thunder).

    Most of all, enjoy, and welcome to the machine!

    Be sure to light some candles for the 24 minute song 'Echoes' on Meddle.

    And buy 'Pink Floyd-Live at Pompeii' for your DVD collection.

    And for added fun - play Dark Side of the Moon as an alternate soundtrack while watching The Wizard of Oz.

    Re: Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    Yes, they WERE that good. See if you can get a box set for cheap, or borrown someone's Wish You Were Here, DOOTM, and The Wall, download them to your iPod and play them for a while, in their original order, no shuffling.

    If you feel the need to know some current music, The White Stripes are releasing an album of songs tomorrow (6/19) that is supposed to be quite excellent.

    Yes, they were really good in their time. Not sure if I would still like them if I started listening to them now.

    My favorite albums: Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals

    I saw The Wall concert at the LA Sports Arena. It was pretty good. First row in the risers. Very trippy, as was everything in those days.

    Re: Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    I saw their tours from "Meddle" (in Westchester New York) through The Wall.

    What was most impressive, beyond the stage show (remember the lasers bouncing off the pig? The giant rotating sunflower made out of mirrors?) was the sound--Pink Floyd always used a quadrophonic sound system, and the audio was simply unbelievable. I understand that David Gilmour does some of his own mixing on stage now, and am sure that sonically it's still a marvel to hear.

    Re: Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    I saw Roger Waters in concert back in college and he alone was amazing, so I can only assume the whole band together was unbelievable.

    For the OP, yes, they are that good.

    Saw them for A Momentary Lapse of Reason at MSG in NYC

    One heck of a show. Unrinating pigs and crashing airplanes and all.

    Re: Is Pink Floyd really that good?

    start with Dark Side of the Moon, lie back on your bed or sofa, whatever and just let the music take you away to the most relaxed existance ever

    that's what their music does for me, they are my all time fave band and the subject of my first tattoo that i got back in 1989

    *swoon* how i love thee Pink Floyd
