Pink Floyd biography
PINK FLOYD can be considered as one of the leading bands in progressive rock from the seventies, together with YES and GENESIS. Their first line-up consisted of guitarist Syd BARRETT, bassist-singer Roger WATERS (who left the band in 1983), drummer Nick MASON and keyboardist Rick WRIGHT. Their early material was mostly written and sung by BARRETT, at that time the central figure of the group. The first album "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" of 1967 contains come catchy pop songs, together with more experimental and longer instrumental pieces. They even reached the Top-20 in England with the song "Arnold LAYNE". In the beginning of 1968, guitarist David GILMOUR joined the band to replace BARRETT in live performances. But BARRETT had to leave the group because of mental instability. In 1970 the band recorded some songs for the cult movie Zabriskie Point including an alternative version of 'Careful With That Axe, Eugene'.

PINK FLOYD became even more successful, whilst playing psychedelic progressive rock with a touch of classical music. 1971 saw the release of "Meddle" (a clever mix of short mellow jazzy tunes and lengthy experimentaltracks) and the soundtrack for the film "La Vallée" ("Obscured By Clouds") was released in 1972. But their most successful album was definitely "Dark Side Of The Moon" (1973), cosmic rock produced by an excellent sound engineer Alan PARSONS. This album is a milestone in progressive rock, great songwriting with lots of special effects and including saxophone and great female vocals. The successor "Wish You Were Here" included the well-known epic song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". "Animals" is a dark and underrated gem, featuring scathing lyrical accounts on humanity.

End 70's, Roger WATERS influenced both musical and lyrical the albums of the band. In 1979, they released "The Wall", a double album rock opera. After the release of "The Final Cut" in 1983 the band split up for a while. PINK FLOYD released a few albums afterwards without Roger WATERS, but they never reached their previous status. "Echoes", The Best of Pink Floyd, was released in 2001. To celebrate this 30th anniversary a new version of "Dark Side Of The Moon" has been released. This release is a must have for all music lovers young and old. Highly Recommended!

Review by uduwudu

4 stars Having a comprehensive collection of Floyd albums is a good thing. I do have this collection but not in this box set version.

First there is, again, no Relics so am glad I already have my Japanese edition of this album (compilation) which really needed to expanded; include Money from Dance Songs and The Embryo from Works as well as the extra material from Shine On, a 1990s box set oddly incomplete.

Secondly, the 1 CD editions of Dark Side and WYWH were released in tandem with the separate Experience Editions. It would have been every nice if the concert CDs had been released either as per the Experience Editions or as their own Wembley 1974 set exclusive to the box set. Not to mention the third CD of The Wall.

I'm sure there will be another box set to come some Christmas time near you and perhaps will be comprehensive possibly in hybrid SACD format as well.

Music wise I rate most things PF very highly one of rock's finest and music's more significant rock contributors; the reviews here give good ideas - I tend to go with the more highly rated assessments of musical content not caring about the politics behind the say, later releases.

This set is good, very good, but caution to those who think they get the full picture. Still a few purchases to go. For yet another box set I really think more could have been done to benefit the PF consumer.

So, it's excellent but this could so easily have been better without going to much effort. Perhaps the general listener with this on their shelf will be fine with it, more power to them. But the nutty fanatics who look at every detail (lunatics us all) want the COMPLETE set.

And more.

Dark Side Of The Moon
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by stefanblazanovic

2 stars Okay I was tempting myself to give this album a 1 star out of 5 but I couldn't. The thing about this album is that it puts me to sleep. Or as I like to call it a snoozefest. I was never so bored with an album I had high exceptions for. The truth is that there is many pink Floyd albums albums that are better then dark side of the moon. (aka. Animals, Wish you were here.) I guess I don't see what's so magical about this album. And the fact that DSOTM is more of a pop rock album rather then a progressive rock album.

The only thing stopping me from giving this a 1 star is that that this album is so iconic and brings the progressive rock image into the spotlight but other then that this is going to be a 2 out of 5 stars for me. Sorry pink Floyd fans...

Louder Than Words
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by aglasshouse

4 stars Although I cannot rate 'The Endless River' on here due to the said rating abuse attacks on it which have caused it to be taken down indefinitely, I'm going to review the only material on the site, the single Louder Than Words.

Listening to this piece amazed me, for I had thought that Gilmour and Mason would lose their stride in their old age. I was wrong. The vocals still retain top notch quality, the music is a little slower than other Floyd tracks, but is still a great addition to any fan's prog collection.

I would say that if you are hesitant to pick up The Endless River, then listen to this first, and see how you like it. Of course the entire album won't be like it, but it does retain some of the theme and should be grounds on whether or not to get it.

Go give it a listen.

Obscured By Clouds
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by aglasshouse

5 stars Back when I was new to Pink Floyd, I overlooked this album, thinking it was just a weak, non-essential album. So instead, I bought the more known and praised albums. I have extremely enjoyed releases like 'Dark Side of the Moon', 'The Wall', 'Wish You Were Here', and especially 'Animals'. However, when my childhood friend bought me it while he was out at a music store, I eagerly slotted 'Obscured by Clouds' into my CD input. And I was totally blown away by this album.

Of course, this isn't the first time PF has attempted a film-score, with most the two most notable soundtracks by them including the 'Zabriskie Point' and 'More' among them. To really give a clear understanding of 'OBC', I'm going to juxtapose it with 'More', the other most known of their soundtracks.

Even with a relatively short time gap of three years (More (1969), Obscured by Clouds (1972), these two albums could not be any more different. With 'More', there was a clear and edgy psychedelic rock sound to it, while 'Obscured by Clouds' has a totally different and dominant prog rock sound.

Also, the album gives a clear point to their next album, 'Dark Side of the Moon'. In fact, if you listen to 'Childhood's End', the sound is so distinct, to me it sounds like a demo from the 1973 album.

Some highlights include my personal favorite PF song, "The Gold It's In The...", with a surprisingly hard-rocking jazz beat with free-flowing lyrics. The Water's written track "Free Four" is an excellent song, along with, as stated before, 'Childhood's End'.

I would say that this album is definitely my favorite by Pink Floyd, and I would strongly suggested people to not pass over it as a non-essential album.

Go give it a listen.

The Division Bell
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Obsidian Pigeon

3 stars The Division Bell is an album that I bought solely because of High Hopes. It, along with What Do You Want From Me, were the only two tracks that I had heard prior to actually getting the album, and I figured that I should give it a try, as it is Pink Floyd's last album, at least until their new swan song for Richard Wright is released by the end of the year.

As much as I like Pink Floyd's melodies and instrumentals, I find many of the tracks on this album simply seem to wander. In the past, their instrumentals seemed to have more of a purpose and buildup, whereas on here they seem to have lost a bit of the inspiration. Some of the passages are still very beautiful, and I do enjoy them quite a bit, but on the whole, it does not compare favorably to Pink Floyd's earlier material.

Yet because of such highlights as High Hopes, which is one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs now, I feel compelled to really like this album, although I just quite can't enjoy all of it. High Hopes cannot carry the whole album for me. I wanted to give this album 4 stars, but I feel like it truly deserves closer to the 3 star category.

Meddle

Review by Obsidian Pigeon

5 stars I picked this album up because of the praise I had read regarding the epic track "Echoes," expecting to be blown away. Echoes certainly lived up to the hype surrounding it, and I'm glad that I picked this album up solely for that track. I find myself playing "Echoes" more than nearly any other song on this album, and to anyone who has managed to go without hearing this album, I'd recommend getting it solely for that track.

However, there are still 5 other songs on this album, and some of them certainly merit attention. Opener "One of These Days" manages to be catchy and have a really nice buildup. The following song, "Pillow of Winds," also manages to weave nice melodies in a fairly hypnotic and peaceful track. Over time, I've come to actually appreciate Fearless as well. San Tropez, for what it's worth, also does not detract much from the quality of the album. The only track that really does is Seamus, but because it's only a little over 2 minutes and not very relevant in the grand scheme, I'm going to just mostly dismiss it.

Because some of the tracks on here are clearly essential Pink Floyd and the whole experience is fairly pleasant, I've come to the conclusion that rounded up this is a 5 star album.

Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Obsidian Pigeon

5 stars This, I believe, is Pink Floyd's greatest work. While stylistically it does not differ significantly than its prodigious predecessor, it still offers an exceptional musical experience. Pink Floyd manages to weave hypnotizing melodies, dreamy vocals, and stellar songwriting all into one neat package with this album, and for that reason, I believe that it merits a perfect 5 star rating.

No song on this album really drags at all, and they all have superb moments. While an album with 4 songs, one of which bookends the album with a total time of over 25 minutes, may seem daunting to a casual listener of classic rock, this album manages to make every single piece flow and work beautifully.

Although this album may not merit repeated listens in one session, I believe that because there are no real weak points to this album, and at its best it excels in nearly all aspects, that it deserves a 5 star rating, and is consequently one of my favorite albums ever released.

Classic Albums: The Dark Side Of The Moon

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is a very good documentary about the making of PINK FLOYD`s "The Dark Side of the Moon" album. This is another official video like the one the band did for their "Wish You Were Here" album. It has interviews done with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, Roger Waters, Storm Thorgerson, Alan Parsons and others. It shows an almost track by track (the two exceptions are "Speak to Me" and "Any Colour You Like") description and explanation of how the songs were conceived, and sometimes Waters (the lyricist and the main creator of the concept of the album) gives some explanations about the meaning of the lyrics. It is also a good video because despite the split with Waters in 1985, each member of the band has very good memories about the making of the album, saying that the band was really working as a band and as a team while recording the album, and there are even some good commentaries about each other member`s talents (Gilmour says that the main force behind the album was Waters; Waters praises Wright`s keyboard parts and compositions particularly in "The Great Gig in the Sky" and "Us and Them"; Waters praises the combination of Gilmour and Wright`s vocals; Mason says that the band worked then very well together...). Recording engineer Alan Parsons (why the band did not carry on working with him after this album? This is one of their best recorded albums, in my opinion) is also praised for his work in the album, and he also explains some technical things about the recording of the album. Storm Thorgerson explains how he designed the album`s cover. Waters says that the band still worked very well for this album because they still had the same goals ("to become rich and famous"). As a whole, the interviews are very entertaining, showing personal harmony between the four musicians despite their old legal disputes which derived from the split of Waters in 1985. And this documentary really shows why this album is still very respected since being released in 1973. It still is very relevant despite the passing of time.

A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by aglasshouse

4 stars To start off my new profile, I might as well review one of my favorite prog albums of all time.

When Roger Waters left PINK FLOYD after the dreadful sales of "The Final Cut", Mason and Gilmour were left on their own to produce the next album. During the writing of his 3rd solo album, Gilmour made the decision to actually make it under the PINK FLOYD name. Mason was back on the album, and Wright was brought in as a session musician (for the first time after Waters decided to fire the bloke). Other musicians, such as Carmin Appice, John Carin, and Bob Erzin (who was later known for helping with the production of the album itself) were all on the roster as additional musicians along with some other cool people.

A huge debate over this album is the fact that a "non original member" took over from Waters after he explosively quit the band. Many people say that Mason should have taken over the band, seeing as he was on the wagon from the first album. I think being on the second studio album till present is a spectacular feat, and I would assume that would make you an original member. However, some people disagree with this, and that's okay. It's all about perspective.

As for the musicianship used after Waters left, it's astounding. Sure, cheesy saxophone can increasingly repetitive as the album goes on, but I think Gilmour's fantastic guitar work makes up for that. The heavy guitar solos in such songs as 'On The Turning Away', 'One Slip', and 'Learning to Fly' make me forget all about the sax. As for good moments with the good old brass is in my favorite song, 'Dogs of War', featuring an amazing saxophone solo. True, the sound is slightly out-dated, and hasn't aged very well. With songs like 'Terminal Frost', where the chords might have fit better back in the 70s.

Another song I would like to tackle is 'A New Machine' Parts 1&2. Whilst alot people see this as blatant filler to make up for creative lax, I think of it as a great experimental track. I always loved that psychedelic, rippling sound in the music that gave it a tone of dreary and dark (except for the nice, strong vocals). Part 2 is less enjoyable, due to it's incredibly short duration compared to part 1. I would have rathered they do something like they did with 'Pigs on the Wing', and make it a whole song when combined together, not some small tidbit of what it could really be.

As for the cons, I don't really have much. As I stated before, the aging of this album is sort of stale and disappointing compared to other albums. My least favorite track has to be 'Signs of Life'. The droning and boring quality reminds me too much of the most likely inspired- from track 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond', which I dislike as well (I hope I don't get hated on for that). It is definitely a weak opener.

Overall, I feel that many people jump on the bandwagon for hating this album instead of listening to it with an open mind, which I encourage you to do with full certainty. You might find yourself liking it.

Review by progpig66 (arnold)

5 stars How started my love for progressive rock? On a rainy day in 1977 I bought Animals by Pink Floyd. It changed my life. How I loved this story of Dog, Sheep and of course PIGS! I I was deeply impressed by the inventiveness of the music and the brilliance of the lyrics. Four fantastic musicians telling us the truth about humanity. Listened the album over and over again, devoured the lyrics, went to the record shop and spent my pocket money on many more Pink Floyd LP's.

This is my all time number one progressive rock album and it aroused my love for progressive rock for always!
