The Beatles are significantly more influential than Floyd

Does Pink Floyd have as many quality hits to be ranked with major bands like The Beatles, The Who, Springsteen, etc.?

That's a fair question. To answer it you have to start looking at Floyd's more esoteric, prog rock stuff. I think PF doesn't make it to the next level because of their inconsistent output-I find too often that, while many Floyd songs have memorable riffs, sections, etc. in them, they could use a strong edit. I think that's why some of the shorter songs like Time, Money, Wish You Were Here, etc. are classics- Floyd had to restrict themselves and edit the songs to the best bits, and couldn't noodle around for 20 minutes calling it art.

Quote:
Secondly, it must be admitted that early Floyd albums contained some ridiculous mis-steps, yet, once they hit their stride, they were consistently evocative, cerebral, and musically innovative. The period from 1971-1983 is simply the most brilliant era that any band has ever produced.
No. What now? If I don't admit that 71-83 is the most brilliant era from any band, ever, do I get disqualified from talking about Floyd?

No. More like hidden gems, or to borrow an iTunes music store term, "deep cuts". If you like the most popular songs, are there lesser-known songs that reward obsessive album purchases? In the case of something like The Beatles *IMO*, yes, there are. Pink Floyd? Some of the time.

Sorry Lance, but I'm going to have to imagine that this thread doesn't exist.

sorry but I disagree

there is something very rewarding when you listen to lots of pink floyd albums..their albums go far beyond their most well known tracks

Dark side of the moon goes beyond "Time" and "Money"
songs like Us and them, The great gig in the sky, and Brain Damage, Any colour you like.... are truly what make DSoTM a great record

especially "the wall "and you discover that this album goes beyond songs like Another Brick in the wall or Comfortably Numb....

No, the aforementioned is simply my opinion, but over a span of seven albums I cannot easily think of a comparable period. Even the Beatles never put together this many brilliant albums in a row, or, in my mind, were as consistently innovative as Floyd. Then again, I have never been one to subscribe to the Rolling Stone propensity and venerate everything that The Beatles ever did. Floyd is simply not overrated; they are praised for their brilliant work, and, unlike The Beatles, they are justifiably criticized for their sub-par work.
