When can he get The Division Bell?
WTTM has just two plays on my iTunes, but I disagree it's worse than some of the stuff on Meddle. I think it's Seamus that I remember being horrible.

I reckon he should go from here:

1. WYWH
2. Animals
3. Piper
4. Division Bell

1. Dark Side of the Moon
2. Wish You Were Here
3. Animals

That's what I'm doing as of right now. After that, it's debatable.

I don't have Animals, obviously.
Animals is awesome. Maybe I'll have to do another CD of music for you.

What Pink Floyd do you have/like?

The Raptors. Chris Bosh would single-handedly destroy them during the regular season, but the Raps have been slummin' recently - hopefully the Magic can actually win games at home this round.

Agreed. And that's why I think WYWH is the better album to hit than Animals - SOYCD is more accessible, and if you love that and the rest of the album, it's safe to say you should enjoy Animals. It's a good litmus test really.

I also recommend the Pulse live album. That was my introduction to the Floyd. It's got some great stuff on it.

Alright, I see where you're coming from then.

I still think The Wall and Meddle should come after Animals and WYWH. I like Piper and Division Bell, but he should here the other "classics" first, even if you hate The Wall.

My physics teacher gave out packets of those cards once, and I got THE WRATH OF GOD - DESTROYS EVERYTHING, NO REGENERATIONS or something. Apparently it's worth $15, but I can't find a place to sell it. Pretty messed up stuff in those cards, too.

And like that, I'm out.

Enjoy the Floyd, P-Funk, and see the rest of you guys later.

I'm quite curious about The Wall. I'll take suggestions from Americans and Aussies alike, though.

Even though I don't trust Aussies.

One night I was hanging in my buddy's basement and happened upon some Magic cards. Turns out I have four or five buddies who actually know how to play Magic.

I was Pokemon only in my younger days.

Have a good one.

I'll probably watch the Sixers tonight, mostly in support of my dad's friend, Sixers GM Eddie Stefanski.

Since when was Meddle a classic? He might as well listen to Obscured By Clouds or Ummagumma ...

As for The Wall, well I suppose it is one of the big four albums. It just seems to me there are other better Floyd albums to hit first.

Holy shit, half of the floodlights have just gone out in Kolkata with only 20 balls left to bowl in the game! Now the teams are standing around in dim lighting and who knows what the fuck's going to happen.

I got sent a bunch of stuff from a Pink Floyd fan friend of mine in Canberra... I've got Momentary Lapse, obviously... Pulse (both discs), Division Bell and Wish You Were Here... and a couple of random other tracks that are probably from Dark Side of the Moon or something.

Off the top of my head, and keeping in mind I haven't given all those a thorough listening to, my favourite tracks stand out as Dogs of War, High Hopes... those songs everyone knows (Brick in the Wall, WYWH, Comfortably Numb, etc)... um. Don't think I've actually listened to Pulse at all...

Giving Sorrow a listen now...

I like what I've heard, generally speaking.
