The last two songs of this album combined are among the best album closers I've ever heard. Time is amazing. I'm not the biggest fan of Money but I still like it. If you don't like more avant-garde stuff you can keep the first three songs. If you don't care for instrumentals you can also skip The great gig in the sky and Any Colour you like (but it's your loss, really).
I didn't like this album too much when I was younger but in my early twenties I started developing a pronounced taste for Pink Floyd and now they have legitimately become my favorite band.
>>61796434 The entire thing is just really boring and corny as hell. The opening track gets me kind of excited, and then that part in Time with the backing vocals is really nice, and The Great Gig is pretty cool. Other than that it just feels like boring rock songs with spacey production.
My favorite artists are Les Rallizes Denudes, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, and Television, so I feel like Pink Floyd should fall right into my taste but they really don't.
>>61796556 He will have finished the album, and his trip wouldn't even be 1/3 done. Acid goes on for too long. >>61796574 I'm sorry you feel it is boring. I on the otherhand find practically infinite enjoyment of the album, for all the disposable sounds, effects pedals, pop instruments like the saxophone or the backup singers, the list can go on
This album has a serious build up. Just let it keep playing. It will grow on you. I went from not understanding how someone could stand listening to it to not being able to fall asleep without it within a couple weeks during my pink floyd phase.
Are you guys just trying to be edgy? Pink Floyd is not my favorite band anymore but if you don't go through a phase where you can't stop listening to them, your taste is shite. Their discography has at least one album that someone will like. They were pros in knowing what would be tasteful and what would be cheesy and what would be cliche.
>>61796743 >It just feels like the songs aren't very good and the focus is on all the crazy studio effects and production values. the idea was to make a very commercial album while still pushing the envelope musically as well as sonically. they succeeded
Any Colour You Like is about thinking you have a choice but you really dont. this is expressed by more than just the title.
the first half of the song repeats the same few notes on the keyboard except they play it faster, slower, backwards and forwards to create the illusion of listening to different things. it cleverly shows how people are mislead into thinking they are decididing how their life will run but that is not the case as societies pressures force you to take a certain path.
>>61797185 >>61797322 People were inverting melodies long before Pink Floyd came along. Bach did it like a madman. Pink Floyd had a concept that the practice fit into. I don't think they did it because they thought it was deep when they were high.
>>61797490 Everyone in the band did drugs, especially smoking pot and taking acid. Syd Barrett was the only one who really overdid and exacerbated his undiagnosed schizophrenia and/or personality disorder
personally, despite syd barrets awful lifestyle choice, i think he was the most talented member of pink floyd, but because he lost his sanity so to speak it was passed to gilmour and waters who are great but syd was better more creative. gilmour is like straight blues and roger is a great songwriter but syd barret just wrote more intersting more vulnerable colorful lyrics, in my opinion, more vivid.
>>61797640 They were aware people listened to their music for that reason, but they were all hippies in a sense and did drugs, syd barrett was the only one who really did too much. they others had grown out of psychedelia when they did meddle, and when they were farting around with atom heart mother.
>>61797935 >Turning 18 makes you realize how much of a joke 4chan is I don't see what turning 18 has to do with this, you should be able to realize to not take pretty much anything here seriously after spending a little time in here.
But then again, that is exactly the reason 4chan is 18+, eventhough there are unfortunately much underage contrarian shitlords exactly like you were posting here every damn minute.
