I agree, it is lame.

If you have a boring mind, DON'T listen to Pink Floyd.

Boring minds are lame.

Different strokes for different folks.

I know I have to be in the mood to listen to that album all the way through.

Most people can't sit through a 17 minute song like Dogs, they just can't.

Dogs is one of my favorite Floyd songs, but I'll admit, parts of it bore me out of my mind. Other parts, the verses for example, and the acoustic guitar riffs absolutely blow me away. But the extended synth sections just irritate. It's not that I can't sit through a 17 minute song (I'm not insinuating you were pointing me out specifically...just commenting), it's just that those 17 minutes had better all be good music, rather than 12 minutes of Gold, and an extra 5 of garbage just thrown in for good measure.

Basically I think I'm just a little put off by the jam-band, prog, whatever you call it aspect of many Floyd compositions.

I'm a pretty big Floyd fan and still agree somewhat with Lancemc's original post that they are overrated. As for the Wall, I absolutely love it! You have to be in the right mood for that album, kinda like UF or ATYCLB.

I don't understand how someone can be a big Floyd fan, but still think they're overrated.

No.

1. Pink Floyd has made some of the most emotional music in rock history. Many of the themes that run through their music are universal. Mania, greed, war, alienation, drugs, mortality and religion are all things that we wrestle with as human beings. Roger Waters can express the sense of those uncertains and evils better than most. How can songs like Echoes, Us and Them, Gunner's Dream, Shine On You Crazy Diamonds and Hey You not have a sense of 'spirit'?
2. Pink Floyd shrouds these concepts in music that can bring a listener into those worlds. Pink Floyd is one of the most cinematic bands in history because of that. You have to be willing to give yourself to those worlds to appreciate them. Few artists can do this.
3. The idea of filler in Pink Floyd albums is complete bullshit. Pink Floyd albums are like vast paintings with every seemingly meaningless song being an important part of the whole.

In short, if you don't think Pink Floyd has substance then you haven't actually listened to them or don't want to understand them. In either case, you're misguided in your opinion. Roger Waters is a better song writer than any of the artists Lancemc listed.

Wow. That's one of the most pretentious and subtly offensive posts I've read in a long time. I was actually considering seriously responding to that too until I read your last little paragraph there.

Why not? One could be a big Floyd fan and rate them say, 8/10 and still think that people that are rating them 10/10 are overrating the band.
