Is anyone interested in picking this up upon release? As much as I dislike Piper, I never purchased it and, if the price is right, I may give it a second chance. The bonus tracks sound cool.

I have the album, and I also have most of those early singles from the bonus disc that came with the Shine On box set, so I don't know if I'll pick it up or not. Although the fact that it is newly remastered intrigues me.

I might do so. I'm REALLY disappointed that Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream aren't going to be included on the bonus disc, though. Would have liked an official release of those two. They're great Syd songs.

So when people say that someone has great this or that, they are actually still judging on who has the best songs and how they used them.
I see what you're saying here. What I'm trying to do with this playlist is have that sort of continuity, maybe almost a story, throughout the whole thing. The hardest part is finding the appropriate ending, it has to be that cathartic release everyone's been waiting for. I'm pretty close on settling on The Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want"

And phanan, "Nobody Home" kind of works with my playlist, but I am close to switching it up with something like "One of These Days", "The Great Gig in the Sky" (a very popular choice by everyone it seems), or "Brain Damage". I wish I could include "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" as the same song.

Purple Rain is an amazing closer too. The only problem is that it's 8 minutes long and the edited version is rubbish.

It gets a little too indulgent towards the end though.

Hey Jude would be great, but it doesn't fit my playlist at all, plus I'd rather have Here Comes the Sun.

Is yours in a single playlist? I chose the two disc method because I like being able to pick out two openers and two closers.

I have a single playlist, but it's divided like 2 CDs. I did it so I wouldn't have to worry about the lengths of each CD.

I also love dividing each CD into a Side A and Side B, with interludes and exitludes, that's a load of fun too.

1. Animals
2. The Final Cut
3. Wish You Were Here

5. The Dark Side Of The Moon
6. Meddle
7. Obscured By Clouds
8. The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
9. A Saucerful Of Secrets
10. Atom Heart Mother
11. More
12. The Division Bell
13. Ummagumma
14. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason (...or, as I like to call it, A Momentary Lapse of Musical Integrity)


And because I'm bored, I'll rank the solo albums too.

1. Roger Waters - Amused To Death
2. Roger Waters - The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking
3. David Gilmour - David Gilmour
4. Roger Waters - Radio KAOS
5. David Gilmour - On An Island
6. Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs
7. Richard Wright - Wet Dream
8. Syd Barrett - Barrett
9. Richard Wright - Broken China
10. David Gilmour - About Face

I don't own any of Nick's projects because...well, they suck. Didn't include Syd's Opel because it doesn't really count, it being more of a collection of outtakes, and I didn't include Roger's collaboration with Ron Geesin, as he only wrote a couple on that one.
I didn't see this either- interesting list. For me, Dark Side, WYWH and Animals are almost indistinguishable in their brilliance. I am slightly surprised that you would rank Broken China as low as you did, if only because I really enjoy that album. The atmospherics are exceptional, especially in Sweet July. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Rick, as it is a great testament to his musicianship and also strongly evokes his many contributions to Floyd.

I'm opening with "Race for the Prize (Remix)"

and I'm going to use "Sheep," why not?

I've got a question for anyone familiar with the current Waters tour. Screwtape, GG (I know you'll probably have the answer), Phanan, or whoever may know. My question is this: Before the show begins, a film is shown, where a guy is listening to the radio while sitting in a chair. Amongst other things. Is this person supposed to be the rock star from The Wall who Geldof portrays in the film. The scene reminds me of 'Nobody Home'. Or is there no connection there. Just wondering. I know all you young 'uns are much more knowledgeable about the Floyd than I, so I thought I'd ask.

Either way, I love the way they continue using this film to lead into Wish You Were Here. I was hoping they would do that the first night we saw the show. And they did.

Leaving in a few hours for tonights extravaganza

Just thought I'd drop in and say I came this close to buying Pulse and Hunky Dory yesterday. Instead I walked out with House Season 1 and Automatic for the People.

Is Pulse worth it? I plan to get it this upcoming weekend.

Most definitely, in my opinion. Gilmour is absolutely on fire throughout the entire record, especially on Comfortably Numb. You can usually find the CD used at most any record trading store for a fraction of its list price.

Personally, I only watch PULSE for Sorrow and Dark Side Of The Moon. The rest of it comes off as a little hollow to me. But this is only because I'm not a big fan of The Division Bell and I loathe A Momentary Lapse Of Reason with every fibre of my being. I also get annoyed by the fact that Rick et al slaughtered Roger's vocals in Comfortably Numb. You might like the DVD though, because it seems you luckily haven't settled into one of the Floyd "camps" yet.


And yeah, hardyharhar, the general consensus is that the man with the radio is supposed to represent Pink from The Wall. I don't think I've seen anything official from Roger on it anywhere, but everyone agrees that it must be an older Pink.
