Dark Side of the Moon


Us and Them


Saw them in 1994 at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. One of my favorite shows of all time.

actually their all good...but i like the wall best just because of the concept behind it...

------------------
In the Kamigata area they have a sort of tiered lunch box they use for a single day when flower viewing. Upon returning, they throw them away, trampling them underfoot. As might be expected, this is one of my recollections of the capital [Kyoto]. The end is important in all things.
-from the book Hagakure:The Book of the Samuri by Yamaoto Tsunetomo

Who do you think is more popular overall: U2 or Pink Floyd?

The 2 have many similarities in terms of a dedicated fan base, longevity, popularity and ground-breaking concerts.

PF sold over 3 million units of their Greatest Hits a few months back, even though the have been around for 35 years and most people probably owned the songs on the disc anyway. That is impressive!

(BTW, U2, PF and The Stones are widely considered the ONLY bands who could sellout stadiums on both sides of the Atlantic)

YES YES YES. I Love Pink Floyd. David Gilmour is a foundation member of my "Good David's Club"
So many great songs, so many great albums. I think Dark Side of the Moon has to be my favourite for sentimental reasons.I LOVE Great Gig In the Sky. I found some of the lyrics on Divison Bell to be very moving...."caught up in a cauldron of hate..." ouch! Needs to be said sometimes though.

Dark Side of the Moon: second best rock n roll album of all time.

Run Like Hell or Shine on You Crazy Diamond, best songs.

lol the 'Bike' song- that is actually off my fave PF album, that being 'Relics', I just love that album especially See Emily Play and The Nile Song and then I always have a special place for Wish You were here as that album reminds me so much of my Mum and Dad and being young- they used to play that all the time and apparently it was my Mum's fave album when I was in her womb, maybe that explains why I get a fuzzy feeling whenever I hear the start of Shine on you crazy diamond

U2 and Pink Floyd are close in concert populatirity, but U2 beats them out overall in popularity because U2 is a much stronger album selling act for new material from 1987 to the present.

While the Greatest Hits for Pink Floyd did well, it has not sold 3 million units in the USA. The Triple platinum award was given to the GH album, because RIAA counts both disc in each album package. So the GH Pink Floyd album actually only sold 1.5 million copies in the USA. Now according to Soundscan, Dark Side Of The Moon is selling more than the GH album.

The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse.. and Division Bell were not big sellers on the grand scale. Those are the only albums of new material that has been put out by Floyd since 1980. So Pink Floyds popularity was in the 1980s and 1990s very similar to the Rolling Stones, HUGE concert fan base with much smaller sales in albums. Pink Floyd is another band like the Stones that often sells more concert tickets than their latest album release.

Pink Floyd has not done anything actively as a band since 1994. After 8 years away, Dave Gilmore has stated that he thinks that the band is over. Its rather difficult to judge Floyds popularity in the current climate because they have not had a new album in 8 years and there is no tour, the band is essentially no more.

In terms of overall popularity, achievment or critical achievement regardless of the bands current status, I would say that U2 has passed Pink Floyd by. Pink Floyd has always been and looks like will continued to be, most known for their work from 1973-1979 on Dark Side... Wish You Were Here, Animals, and the Wall. Material released after that has not had anywhere near the selling power or critical approval that those albums had. In fact there are many Critics including Rolling Stone that have attacked Pink Floyds work without Roger giving albums like Momentary and Division Bell only 2 stars out of 5. U2 on the other hand has maintained a commercial and critical level that has kept them the #1 active band worldwide since 1987. 15 years at the top on a Global scale, longer than any other band in history.
