but while i'm here...
i love all eras of floyd, and that includes solo floyd.
as all things flerdian go... my fave album is animals. what some of ye call the "polish" of wish you were here or dark side, animals takes the mature talent (musically and lyrically) and turns it into orwellian, dystopian, pastoral punk. my fave gilmour gweetar is on animals. some of the best wright music. and my fave rogerian lyrics, poetic even, before they went wall.
then again, i have written novels about animals already on this board. (suddenly, i am feeling so much love for yomp. sniff.)
all that being said, i played lucifer sam at my wedding reception... i sing meddle in my sleep... and i am just an all around floyd freak.
i smacketh upon ye all. it will take the move and settling for me to get back to this. but i will.
Moving is one of my forms of hell, pray it goes smoothly for you.
Meddle & Piper are my favourite two Floyd albums, I did hugely love DSOTM & WYWH, am more burnt out with them than anything else.
Looking forward to having you back on board!
