Seriously,

Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts I - V)
Welcome to the Machine
Have a Cigar
Wish You Were Here
Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts VI - IX)

It doesn't come much better than that.

10, 8, 8, 10, 10.

I can't believe people made such a big deal over that. I deleted it from my computer.

I'm don't quite abhor it that much, because there's other songs I enjoy, such as In the Flesh, In the Flesh?, Mother, Vera...
Woops, forgot to reply to the rest. Let's do a new post rather than an edit to help out the postwhorehouse!

I've played NLOTH about two times. You can at least tell there's a bit of interesting guitar stuff going on at the end, but that's it. What cracked me up was when people got excited over the earlier clip of The Edge just rehearsing scales!

See, there are a few other moments on the album that I appreciate, but too often they seem tied to dullness. They segue into or out of boring tracks and I can't conveniently isolate them like I can with the three songs I named.

Fuck Meddle, he needs Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

Astronomy Domine, Lucifer Sam, Interstellar Overdrive, and MOTHERFUCKIN' BIKE are made of SuperWin.

I've got a mouse
He hasn't got a house
I don't know why I call him Gerald ...

Oh, I must have missed NLOTH. The clip I got was the scales one, which was what I was referring to. How the hell can people get excited over that?? I hate to say it, but I laugh at some of the people who frequent that forum.

And you'll notice that two of the songs you pointed out were Gilmour songs. Nuff said.

I don't own that and don't really want to.

Lucifer Sam is good, AD and IO are good as well.

Animals is actually my favourite, but an introduction to GOOD Pink Floyd via three songs over 10 minutes long may not be so wise. WYWH combines their shorter and more sprawling sides.
I'm actually down with long songs, so far i'm addicted to Comfortably Numb.

It's not that long, but you see my point.

It pleases me that Split Enz are currently burning a lot of at the Vector Arena right now - i wish i'd got tickets.
What shits me is that people participate in these feel good Earth Hour things and think they're actually making a difference. It's like with Live Aid - it doesn't make even a single fucking dent in the situation. Genuine change and proactive leadership at the political level is what's needed.

Oh man, you missed out on seeing the Enz? I feel for you. They fucking OWNED Brisbane in 2006. The spoon solo ...!

Dude, Piper is totally worth it. The drug-fueled creativity is insane.

My personal PF album rankings:

1. Animals
2. Wish You Were Here
3. Piper
