Pink Floyd biography
Formed in 1965 in London, UK - Disbanded in 1994 - Reunited with different formation on several ocasions

One of the biggest bands of all time

Of all the bands who come under the progressive rock banner, Pink Floyd are, arguably, the act most recognisable in the wider music community to music lovers of all genres. Yet, as revealed famously by Nick Mason in an old interview, even at the height of their fame, they could walk down any street, and passers-by would not have recognised a member of one of the most commercially successful acts in music history.

The band were formed in London in 1965, the original members being Roger (known as Syd) BARRETT on vocals and lead guitar, Nick MASON on drums, Roger WATERS on bass guitar and vocals, and Rick WRIGHT on keyboards.

The London of the late 1960's was a melting pot of live acts and varying musical genres, and the band gained a cult following amongst the underground psychedelic crowd of the time. This expanded into a more public consciousness with a residency at the famous UFO Club, with a hypnotic light show and pulsating, often indescribable, sounds. This led to television appearances, most famously an interview and live performance on BBC The Look of the Week, with a rather bemused classical performer Hans Keller in tow. Waters was famously asked just why everything had to be so loud?!

This popularity led to the band signing to EMI, who in 1967 released two hit singles, Arnold Layne, which attracted controversy regarding its cross-dressing themes, and See Emily Play. They charted in the UK at 20 and 6 respectively.

The debut album which followed, Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, is universally recognised as being hugely influential in rock music, beyond the narrow confines of psychedelia. It peaked at number 6 in the UK album charts in 1967, and the band continued to play not only their residency, but also increasing numbers of national gigs and festivals.

The strain, however, was beginning to tell on Barrett, and a fragile mental state, exacerbated by LSD, led to him becoming almost semi-detached from the band and wider reality. The situation became such that the band, at the end of 1967, drafted in David GILMOUR ...

Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Isaac Peretz

5 stars Absolute masterpiece. That's the best way to describe it. First of all, how do you follow up an album like DSOTM? And album that is a near-to-unbeatable work? Pink Floyd somehow managed to make an album as good in just two years! First things first, I don't think this is better than the Dark Side Of The Moon, or vice versa. They both got their strengths and their almost non-existent weaknesses.

WYWH is truly successful when it comes to track-to-track quality. There's not a single song that deserves to be called "the worst".

The "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" suite features some of the most soothing melodies you will ever hear. "Welcome To The Machine" is a dark, depressive song that transports you to another world with its hypnotic keyboards. "Have A Cigar" is a funky and catchy groove that removes the sad ambience from Welcome To The Machine. "Wish You Were Here" is one of the most iconic Pink Floyd songs, and it has a beautiful meaning too.

Simply perfect, I have no idea how you could possibly not rate this album five stars.

Animals
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by thesimilitudeofprog

5 stars "Animals" is the 10th studio album by Pink Floyd. It is also one of the most progressive albums that they made with the concept behind it being very intricate. It was released on 23rd January 1977 and 44 years later, this album is still as important as it was back then. The album cover includes a pig floating between two of the chimneys at Battersea Power Station in South London.

The album starts just as it ends. Pigs on the Wing Part 1 is sung by Roger Waters. It is a love song that Roger wrote for his partner at the time. The song is split into two halves which sits nicely as bookends to the album. The song works so well. The song is so simple and just features Water's guitar and vocals. Dogs is the next song on the album. Waters compared Dogs to manipulative people who are always after something. The song is lyrically about trying to find who you are as a person and your place in society but getting stuck in the day-to-day life routine. Being the longest track on the album at a staggering 17+ minutes. This song has got to be up there in the greatest Pink Floyd tracks. It is progressive and melodically & lyrically superb. Dogs has always been one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs purely because when you think it has gotten to the peak of the song; it carries on. Pigs (Three Different Ones) is about the society and the government. The bass completely drives this song and makes the song so rhythmic, even though lyrically, it is really tearing into people. Animals is not just about one person; it is about a lot of people that really angered Pink Floyd (mainly Roger Waters.) The talk box is the most iconic part of the whole song purely as it sounds like a pig. Roger Waters bass tone on this song is energizing and placed so well in the mix. Richard Wright progressively starts Sheep on keys while a strange moody rhythmically tone comes from Roger Waters bass. Sheep is about the blind followers, which I feel was aimed directly at the public in the 1970's who stuck by all the politicians as the safe option, because they were scared to stand up for themselves in what they believe in. Politicians fool us all the way into thinking they are right and then once everyone has voted for them and put them in power, they change and come out as their "true selves". The albums just as it starts. Pigs on the Wing Part 2 has the exact same concept as Part 1 does but in this part, Roger Waters talks about how he has stopped being a dog and has settled down in the society with his partner.

Absolutely stunning album and still so iconic to this day.

Review by Uruk_hai

5 stars Review #23

As I've said before in another review: I'm not very much into live albums and that includes videos, but "Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii" is an exquisite and unique piece that I enjoy a lot every time I watch it. In 1972, PINK FLOYD played in the ruins of Pompeii, Italy; it was a concert without an audience and they released an amazing film showing those performances that had become a whole classic among the PINK FLOYD fans all over the world.

Absolutely brilliant, the film shows the four members of PINK FLOYD in their better years, when they were swimming in the waters of experimentation and creating that solid style that they kept growing through the becoming years. They selected some of their most ambitious songs from the "A saucerful of secrets", "Ummagumma" and "Meddle" albums, and they exploded the songs into very strong and precise performances.

1.- Echoes, pt. 1: The first song in the video is the first part of the main suite from the "Meddle" album; it shows beautiful graphics of space since the idea is that somebody from outer space is coming to Earth to see the show; while the band is playing, we can see shorts from the studio recordings, showing both David GILMOUR and Richard WRIGHT giving their voices to the piece. The cuts from the air and the whole performance are amazing. The scene ends with shots of the London subway and the front door of Abbey Road studios, then the music stops and we can see the guys having a tasty lunch.

2.- Careful with that ax, Eugene: The song that was originally released as a single and then recorded live in the "Ummagumma" album appears again in Pompeii but now with video added to the music. This performance is great and shows how misty and violent their music could be.

3.- A saucerful of secrets: This song comes from the same-titled album released in 1968. It is a great experimental suite that goes from insanity to tranquility and ends with the unbelievable vocalizing of GILMOUR.

4.- One of these days: The opening song of "Meddle" was also part of the Pompeii soundtrack. The most interesting here are the mind-blowing drums of Nick MASON (the scene when he loses one of his drumsticks and replaces it in a second has become a classic itself).

5.- Set the controls for the heart of the Sun: Another "A saucerful of secrets" original song, reminding their most obscure (musically) days.

6.- Mademoiselle Nobbs: The video also features a short improvised song with a fluffy dog as a guest; I'm not sure if it is the same dog as in "Seamus" (which would make sense since it is a similar song recorded almost at the same time), similar to that song this is also a blues, only without any lyrics.

7.- Echoes, pt. 2: The album ends with the second half of "Echoes" and the spaceship leaving to its origin. It's just a beautiful ending.

The film also shows scenes of Pink Floyd just chilling as a group of friends (more than a group of musicians) in the Abbey Road studios, short interviews that evidences their thoughts about the direction of the band, some shots from the recording of "The dark side of the Moon" and all of this fits really well into the film. It's an obligated stop to any Pink Floyd and Progressive Rock fan.

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I remember listening to this compilation back in 1974, when I started liking rock music at fourteen. It belonged to my sister friend, who were both big fans of Pink Floyd. To us, brazilians, Relics was a very welcomed record since most of Pink Floyd early singles were never released here at the time. Or maybe one or two might have, but if they did, they were hard to find. Contrary to most people here I really liked the music here and I thought it was a great collection that I heard a lot at the time. Songs like Arnold Layne and Julia´s Dream were my favourites (I much rather hear David Bowie´s version of `Pin Ups, which my sister had). The cover art of the brazilian release was very different, being a photo of some odd looking pieces of painted ceramics (porbablçy the same cover as the american one, i guess).

I still enjoy this album to date, being it a quite interesting collection of non album singles and some album cuts that were not maybe their best but still good and representative of their psychedelic phase (nothing here was released after 1969). Although it was out in 1971, no tracks from Ummaguma or Atom Heart Mother is represented in Relics.

1 stars Review #22

Did we really need this?

Imagine that you're really hungry and you are so in the mood for pizza, so you go to one of the best pizza places in town and you order your favorite flavor in the biggest size they have, then you go home and just when your saliva is about to fall from your mouth you open the pizza box only to find out that instead of pizza you got a lot of half-eaten and cold pieces of pizza, horrible, isn't it? Well, that's what I experienced with this album.

The endless river was released in 2014 after 20 years of hiatus, with Richard WRIGHT already dead and, obviously, without any participation of Roger WATERS. I'm not even sure if it is correct to consider this a studio album more than a compilation one: a compilation of "songs" (because they're more like ideas of songs that didn't make it into "The division bell") just re-recorded to make some extra millions of dollars.

When the album starts we can find an instrumental opening just as the two last PINK FLOYD albums, so it's easy to believe the album would be as good as them, but the following songs sound exactly the same, it is like an album full of "Cluster one" repeating itself over and over again. After ten or fifteen minutes it's easy to get really bored.

I've been listening to this album several times since it came out six years ago, hoping to fall in love with it but I just can't appreciate it, I only get really disappointed once more, as if it was that awful pizza I talked about before. There's nothing in this album that I can save.

I just don't get it.

This compilation album is a good acquisition if you're not a huge fan of PINK FLOYD and you only want to listen to their songs once in a while with no interest in the original studio albums. Most of the songs were mutilated so they could fit into the two CD's and the results were awful, being the best example precisely the song "Echoes", which was turned from a 23 minutes song into a 16 minutes song because of all the great parts they cut.

The order and selection of the songs they picked for this album are also very controversial, why did they put "Set the controls of the heart of the Sun" right in the middle of "The great gig in the sky" and "Money"? I'll never understand.

Something really remarkable about this album and honestly the only reason why I would ever buy it is the beautiful artwork by Storm THORGERSON, who made an amazing compilation of references to the whole PINK FLOYD discography, further than that, I have anything else to say about it.

Review by Uruk_hai

4 stars Review #20

"Relics" is a really nice compilation album of PINK FLOYD's early songs from 1967 to 1971, some of them were part of PINK FLOYD first three albums: "The Piper at the gates of dawn" ("Interstellar overdrive" and "Bike"), "A saucerful of secrets" ("Remember a day") and "More" ("Cirrus Minor" and "The Nile song"), but the rest of the songs were singles that didn't become part of any studio album and that is what makes this album so irresistible.

"Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play" are two songs originally composed by Syd BARRETT while the recording of "The Piper at the gates of dawn" and are in the same psychedelic/proto-prog style of that album; "Paintbox" (a song composed by Richard WRIGHT and with him as the lead singer) was released in November 1967 (still with BARRETT on the group) and "Julia dream" (composed by Roger WATERS) was released in April 1968 (now with David GILMOUR) these two songs are really in the vein of "A saucerful of secrets" and they would have fit really well on that album.

"Careful with that ax, Eugene" is the last single included in this album, which was released December 1968 and its live version became part of "Ummagumma" (the good version of the song). "Biding my time" is probably the most amazing song of the album, it was recorded sometime in 1969 and released for the very first time on this album; it's an exquisite jazzy suite (Rick WRIGHT plays the trombone quite nicely) with a mind-blowing guitar solo and very powerful drum beatings at the end.

In general terms, the album is a great compilation that explores the multifaceted styles of the early Pink Floyd sounds.

4 stars Review #19

The second live album by PINK FLOYD was recorded in 1994 and released in 1995 as a part of the "The division bell" tour. The album features songs from "The division bell", "Wish you were here", "The wall", "A momentary lapse of reason", one song from "The Piper at the gates of dawn" (Astronomy domine), and the whole performance of "The dark side of the Moon".

The songs do not change too much from their original studio versions; even when the absence of Roger WATERS is notorious, the band made a great job performing the classic songs in a very well-toned style. The first CD is more varied while the second album is the one with the whole performance of "The dark side of the Moon" and the three encores: "Wish you were here", "Comfortably numb" and "Run like hell".

This album is considerably more interesting and entertained than its predecessor "Delicate sound of thunder" but I don't think that makes this album an indispensable masterpiece of Progressive Rock music, maybe I'm not very much into live albums since there are not too many of them that I consider masterpieces, but I can't find anything in this album that makes a notable difference into PINK FLOYD's music, just a bunch of excellent old-songs with no innovation at all (not musically at least, the video of the show must be quite more interesting).

Almost every progressive rock band of the seventies has at least one live album published in that same decade (ELP has "Pictures at an exhibition", KING CRIMSON has "USA", GENTLE GIANT has "Playing the fool", CAMEL has "A live record", YES has "Yessongs", etc.) but PINK FLOYD didn't publish a live album in the seventies, they published their first live album in 1988 when Roger WATERS wasn't part of the band anymore and all the legal issues in what the band was involved were finally over.

"Delicate sound of thunder" is a double album recorded in New York as a part of the "A momentary lapse of reason" tour, so the album has many songs of this album among some hits from "The dark side of the Moon", "Wish you were here", "Meddle" and "The Wall".

Some songs in here were played really well but there are two versions in this album of early songs that I really don't like: "Money" and "One of these days"; the first one is played as a reggae song, (I adore EASY STAR ALL STARS' "Dub Side of the Moon" which is a reggae version of "The dark side of the Moon" published in 2003 but in here I found it really boring and I just want to skip to the next song), while the second one is played with a sad lack of passion because "One of these days" is a really hard rock song in which Nick MASON's drums are mind-blowing (the Pompeii version is exquisite) but in here Nick sounded like he was playing as we say in Mexico "con hueva" (very lazily).

About the rest of the album I'd only say that they made a nice performance, but if I want to hear PINK FLOYD playing live I'd rather listen to "Ummagumma", "Pulse" or "Is there anybody out there?", but this is an album which I rarely enjoy listening to. What I like the most about this album is the cover, the music not so much.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
