.... I'm sure someone on eBay would buy it... or try your local roleplaying club, if such a thing exists...

Seeya!

I've yet to eat anything since waking up three hours ago. The last thing I had to eat or drink was a beer.

2. Have a Cigar
3. Wish You Were Here
4. Welcome to the Machine.

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.
Ah, cool. Interesting/unexpected choices there - I'm surprised no DSOTM, given its huge classic status. Seems to be mostly the post-Waters era stuff. My favourite tracks from then are High Hopes, Sorrow, and Coming Back To Life. The first disc of Pulse really captured my imagination when I first heard it.

If you like the longer compositions, Animals is really an essential listen. Dogs is 17 minutes of sheer awesomeness. I could e-mail it to you ...

Yes! Somebody else who agrees with me about HAC > WYWH! It's one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs. Such awesome, cynical lyrics. Oh, by the way, which one's Pink?

I'm not sure how I feel about Wish You Were Here. It needs another listen.

But I definitely prefer Dark Side of the Moon to this. Not to say this isn't good, but I loved DSOTM, and I feel this is a little weaker.

See, I think DSOTM is a bit over-rated. I think it's the average PF album that sits between the great stuff and the mediocre stuff. Plus it has that horrid Great Unlistenable Gig In The Sky track, which I think is easily Pink Floyd's worst song.

I think Great Gig in the Sky was pretty good. Not one of that album's stronger tracks, but I don't really think the album had any weak points anyway.

Whereas Welcome to the Machine was the first "weak point" I've noticed in PF's work.

I just can't stand that lady's ear-piercing wailing. Can't listen to that track at all.

I'm on to Animals now.

Then after that, I'll probably listen to the first PF album someone sends me.

I wonder what you'd make of Piper. It seems to be a fairly divisive album. Personally, I think it's great.

Dogs is pretty good, but with 11 minutes to go I wonder how much of this they can do well.

I enjoy Pink Floyd's vocals.

The last two minutes are the best. I adore the outro.

I'm sending you Piper now.

The kind of wailing sound in the middle bugged me. Other than that, it's a pretty good track.
