Edge><Gilmour

both> Slash

Pink Floyd> Zep
U2 and Floyd are so different from each other it's stupid to say anything both have been amazing and both will continue to astound some kid who finds The Joshua Tree or Darskide in his Dad's room and sits down and listens to them is amazingly lucky

I love Pink Floyd. But they were a completely different band, it's like comparing apples and oranges. I'm addicted to "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" from "Wish You Were Here". But they can't replace U2.

Both bands are fantastic.

But different styles of music, from different eras with different agendas.

lyrically Roger Waters was better and band's music ideas were much more open , universal theme , anyone can relate to
U2 never had that , irish blood is too hot ( in a good way )

the only dissappointment I have from that remark, shaun, is that it took you that long to respond. I guess you were busy jerking off to G'N'R records.

btw, why do you waste your time on a U2 forum when there are probably, like, at least 1 to 1 1/2 good velvet revolver forums out there....

Wow...you guys sure know how to stuff up a good thread...! Not JUST the last few posters, but pages back...your arguments were flimsy, you seemed determined not to let someone else have their OPINION and failed to see that the two bands are completely different and anyone is free to work in whichever way they wish...so if Pink Floyd 'took themselves too seriously' (by which you mean making some of the finest records of all time) then who cares...? They were clearly very critical of their own work...and why not? Who wants to put out a crap, half-baked album...? Listen to plenty of U2, and you'll find it hard not to label them in the same way...though they have made exceptional albums as well.

At the end of the day, both bands kick ass and trying to shove your opinion down another guy's throat when comparing bands is going to produce slim pickings, I'm afraid...!

I think in terms of contrasting lyrics... that is just as subjective as judging Edge's and Gilmour's guitar playing against each other.

Syd Barrett-era "Pink Floyd" rocks my world. I lose interest after that, personally.

You find Echoes "emotionally cold"? Also; for me, yes, Comfortably Numb - the solo in particular - WAS life changing... so was Streets, and With or Without You.

I love both these bands. Their music has great intensity and depth... but our appreciation of it is obviously subjective, due to the minor detail of us all being individuals with varying tastes.

In Live At Pompeii Roger Waters (megalomaniac git, but immensely talented lyricist) makes a comment along the lines of this: if the music touches you, if you feel it, that's all that matters. That says it all, as far as I'm concerned. As several other people succinctly put it: apples and oranges.

If people get this stupidly heated over something based on opinions, it's high time to grow up and learn to respect each others' views even when we disagree. All the bitchiness and swearing is like kindergarten gone wrong.
