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.



Screwtape2 FTW

Ed? what does Ed do really? Jonny is the better guitarist, Thom is better vocalist...
Ed is just in the band because he resembles Morrissey and because without him.....

The listener is invited to just put the album on and enjoy it straight through.
Saying that your "sure" that their good and all, shows that you probably haven't really listened to their stuff except on the radio. And when you listen to it on the radio, you kind of take the music out of its element and context. Remember, Pink Floyd didn't give a shit about their music getting played on the radio. They were beyond that. They just wanted people to listen to their albums and appreciate them as a whole.
whoa dude, calm down.

first of all, i'm well aware of the whole concept album thing, and I do appreciate it, and I wish more bands would do it, frankly. I like albums where the songs flow together to be one cohesive unit. I've listened to Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall in their entirety, and yes, they feel like one long song - one long boring song with a few interesting bits thrown in every once and awhile.

it comes down to taste. I said Floyd is lame with a . I'm well aware of their respective musical talent and their impact on music. I also don't particularly like their music. It's not because I think they suck (though I do agree that they're overrated), it's simply because I don't like that kind of music. No arguement can change my personal taste. Sorry.

BOTTOM LINE: PINK FLOYD ARE THE ONLY BAND THAT MATTERS.
