Actually, I don't know I'm in the minority re: Great Unlistenable Gig, because it's only on this forum that I've ever found anybody willing to praise that sack of demented wailing crap. Most people I've discussed DSOTM with despise it more than I do. I remember the first time I listened to DSOTM was in the car and my mother insisted we put on another album because Great Unlistenable Gig was so bad that she couldn't focus on driving.

And my mother's coming to Porcupine Tree in a week so don't write off her taste.

Part of the problem for me was that the Morrissey solo track immediately followed the Morrissey and Siouxsie one. At least my "Finn Frenzy" last time around was broken up.

Yes, I meant here on this board.

Interesting. Most people I know love it.

Your mother should have just moved on to the next track rather than insist on switching albums. That tells me she was underwhelmed with the album as a whole.

But I'll give her props for going to PT with you.

I know a couple of people with generally decent taste in music who don't even listen to DSOTM because of Great Gig. Hell, I rarely played it until I deleted the song from iTunes, so I can see where they're coming from.

As for not skipping to another track, our conversation was something to the effect of:
"Let's skip to the next track."
"Is this stupid warbling on any other tracks?"
"How the hell should I know? I've never listened to the album before either!"
"Put another album on then."

And it's going to be kind of weird going to PT with my mother, that's for sure. But it's better than not having any company.

Great Gig In The Sky, it's a Pink Floyd song on Dark Side Of The Moon. I say it's their worst song. I'm sure you at least agree it's not very good.

So you guys are that bored that you've resorted to trolling again, and posting bullshit threads? I guess no one learned anything from what happened last time? And how many times do I have to tell certain people not to use this thread to talk shit about other members? I can easily just shut this thread down for good. EYKIW is not your playground and if this behavior continues and I keep coming in here to find people talking about other members the thread is getting shut down and suspensions will be handed out.
