Yeah basically most people who are actually into Floyd think that...  but DSOTM is no where near as overrated as The Wall.

On progarchives Animals, WYWH, Meddle, etc. generally get the recognition they deserve... its only the mainstream that really knows them for DSOTM and The Wall.

My opinion on DT doing an entire album of Pink Floyd covers is that they like money... Its amazing how much crap some of these bands will put on cd.

^I think DSOTM is a great album.  A lot of people scorn it because it gets such public recognition.  Imo Pink Floyd's peak was from 1970-1975.  During this period the band worked best as a whole instead of trying to find their feet pre 1970 and Waters dominated stuff 1977-1983.  I think DT covering DSOTM sound really interesting and I would like to hear it.

They are releasing it in two weeks (i think) on the Ytsejam records website.

Since I know someone asked: LaBrie's vocals sound great on the CD. He
really did a great job at least IMO.

So it is more like a bootleg kinda thing rather than official record label release?

I have listened the cd, I have to say it are good cover's. LaBrie has a good voice, bu imo you shouldn't cover songs from a great band like Pink Floyd. Dream Theater is a great band too, but with an other character and an other sound. I shouldnīt make covers anyway.

It's one of Dream Theater's "official" bootlegs from their label Ytsejam
records. So it's official and was sold at their show but it's not a major label
release if that's what you mean.

i feel the same way ...

but it's not bad or anything ... maybe a bit overrated or something ...

or maybe not :)

saying that it's better then meddle is risky for me, because most tracks on it suck (imo).
Even one of these days gets boring fast ... that just leaves echoes which is nice ...

I have heard the bootleg and it sounds nearly the same as the original. I expected Petrucci to play his own solos but he just reproduces note by note the original Gilmour solos, trying to sound exactly the same. And he gets it, but I don't see the interest of buying this. It's exactly the same DSOTM we all know. I already have it.

Animals is still my favorite by Pink Floyd. I wonder what it would be like if Dream Theater covered that...

And for some reason I think it absolutely SUCKS that they've recorded the gig in London...
I was there, in Amsterdam... Call me selfish, but I just think so

By the way, in Japan they played 'Made in Japan', right? Will that be released?

Many years ago a friend of mine send me a cassette tape (i said: many years ago) with a band doing covers of rock classics, and I liked very much.  It was the 'Change of Seasons' by DT, a band that I heard before but didn't liked. Then I buyed various albuns and became a DT fan. But then came the '6 Degrees' and 'Train of Thought' albuns and I forgot them again...

The years passed and I heard that they were doing live versions of complete classic rock albuns. I remembered that they did great covers in the past, and when I heard that they were doing 'DSotM' I became interested. Then I downloaded a live version of it, but when I listened... what a deception...  It was only a fine copy of the original ! They didn't added nothing, absolutely nothing to the songs... It's something like 'The Moon Revisited' by Magna Carta...

If you want good covers of PINK FLOYD songs by great bands that did own personnel versions, try 'Signs of Life - Angular Tribute to PF'. It's excellent !!! Forget this DT xerox copy versions...

Meh.  Floyd has a lot of great albums with interesting material.

But it's important to remember that DSOTM was a profoundly innovative album. It really blew the world away when it came out, partly because of the totally new sounds, partly because of the unusually perceptive and human lyrics (especially for prog rock, which tends to go off the deep end), partly for Alan Parson's brilliant engineering and production work, and partly because this is the album where Gilmore first becomes a guitar god (though he was clearly moving there in Meddle).

People often evaluate art by its context and impact.  As such, DSOTM was one of the most influential albums ever made in any genre.  It's up there with Sgt. Pepper's, Ziggy Stardust, and Never Mind the Bollocks as albums that most changed the course of music history.  So I think the accolades are justified, even if it isn't always my favorite Floyd album.

There's a reason it was the longest in the top two hundred albums.  It had staying power that lasted multiple decades.  Just last year I played it for my sister in law, who is 17 years younger.  She said she won't listen to music the same way ever again.  It is that kind of album, even more than 30 years later.

Amazing stuff if you ask me. Still not for sale though.
