Terrible memories of listening when so stoned I could barely breath. Horrible. Single songs seemed to go on for decades.

I can’t type tonight.

Dark Side Of The Moon.

Enough said.

Second best band ever.

Kind of like The Kinks or The Who -- very good until they became horrible.

Love 'em more now than I did thirty years ago.

And I liked them plenty then.

No. Their best probably is Dark Side of the Moon, for all that it's been played to death and everyone is sick to death of it. WYWH is about 3/4 as good.

I agree. I just thought I'd put it out there.

Top 4, though, definitely. Alongside Meddle and Animals.

I'll give you Meddle. Think I'd rank Animals lower, behind More at least, and probably The Final Cut as well.

Interesting. I love More and the way you can see the early shoots of Floyd Mk. 2. And The Final Cut is an excellent album, but it’s too intense for me to listen to very often. And not enough David Gilmour...and no Richard Wright! But Animals, well it’s got Dogs and that’s why I place it so highly. And of course, Piper is right up there, as well. What a great band!

I don't need to be able to listen to it often to regard it highly.

Okay, well I don’t regard it as highly as I once did. I think it’s by far Waters best solo album, but I don’t mind Amused To Death in small doses. His latest album leaves me cold. I couldn’t even summon up the enthusiasm to buy it. And I wish I hadn’t bought Gilmour’s Rattle That Lock album: what a disappointment that was.

Mmm, very nice. No room for Atom Heart Mother, though.

I wonder if a great quality version of the 1977 Animals tour will ever surface?

I mean, Oakland is great to have, but the recording is only bootleg quality.

We fans deserve better.

Cheesy as hell now, but I always had a soft spot for this Gilmour take on Money.



And the girls were very nice too...not sure about the sax players mullet, though.
