Seems to be the in-thing to do nowadays. It's the facebook generation... always liking or giving a thumbs up for everything instead of actually taking the time to discuss in detail.

As for this latest news, I really like that cover and I'm looking forward to listening to this.

Write sentimental/long-winded posts about music you love

Good stuff. But the 9th post in that thread describes the current generation spot on.

also known as a "joke"

I know your post was probably in jest as well, but it's an annoying mentality. I see way more people my age posting long Facebook statuses about things they're passionate about than older generations. A 19yo mate of mine today posted our new anti-terrorism laws, while my dad has spent the past hour sharing a bunch of videos and photos that are completely lame, totally uninteresting and quite unfunny.

it's a lazy and wrong assumption

Yeah I know it's a generalization. But I see it a lot on facebook (and twitter too I'm sure although I wouldn't know because I had no interest in joining twitter). As for older people posting on facebook, I see the opposite sometimes and it amuses me to no end. My mom will post something very long-winded and then reply to it herself with some more info. Then she will add something else that she forgot to that same thread. Nobody else would have even commented up to that point. I tell her if you're on facebook you need to make your updates short. Leave long essays to your blog. But parents, they don't understand. Anyway, I'm a million miles away from the topic so I'll stop.

It's so hard to keep track of everyone's rules for posting etiquette be it her or Facebook, etc.

Pink Floyd Thread

I think Floyd Mayweather could definitely take Pink in a fight, but she'd probably write a more scathing song about masturbators than he could.

Pink Floyd Share "Allons-y (1)"; | News | Pitchfork

Pretty much just sounds like an extended "Run Like Hell" jam.

The entire album has leaked actually. It's even more boring than Division Bell. Side II is kind of the winner as it has some cool bits in it, even if it cribs from the rest of the band's history.

But again, a lot of easy listening schlock abounds here (which should be unsurprisingly given from when this material was first recorded).

I've also listened, and it's an album Pink Floyd didn't need. Too boring, which as a fact happens when you have a 100% Gilmourish album. We couldn't expect more from Division Bell outtakes.

Division Bell > any Pink Floyd album after Animals.

I wouldn't say TDB is better than The Wall, but with that adjustment I absolutely agree.

I haven't heard any of the clips from the new album yet. I get the sense from what people are saying though that it might be an okay listen once but I doubt it'll be something I listen to again after that. I don't think I'll buy it, although I suspect this is probably more geared to people like my dad, who will buy the most expensive version he can for no other reason than it's "new Pink Floyd".
