I need to remember to listen to those in the morning. I'm too tired at the moment.
I can't help but think the solo in Fat Old Sun is ripped off from Let It Be. I don't know which one was released first though.
[QUOTE=Mr._N;31597887]The Flamings Lips covering Dark Side of the Moon[/QUOTE] Pretty good cover of the album. I like how the Lips arranged the songs to fit their own style, rather than trying a carbon copy of the album like so many other DSotM tribute albums.

Then I heard this one, which is a pretty interesting take on it.
so a while ago i was talking about how i got a dark side of the moon poster over some girl's back album cataloge poster i thought about it [img]http://gyazo.com/7db6ee31a99675d5cc5a693d66d09db5.png[/img] i went and got it today.
I just noticed that, according to my LastFM, I have 420 plays for songs that are on The Wall.
[QUOTE=AK'z;31601344]I can't help but think the solo in Fat Old Sun is ripped off from Let It Be. I don't know which one was released first though.[/QUOTE] They were released on the same year. Let it be was released in May, Fat Old Sun started to be played live July 16th. Definitely not plagiarised.
[QUOTE=AK'z;31601344]I can't help but think the solo in Fat Old Sun is ripped off from Let It Be. I don't know which one was released first though.[/QUOTE] Gilmour rips off himself. The Shine On You Crazy Diamonds solo is very similar to an earlier solo he did. I wish I could remember what song. Kyle v2 sent me a link to it in the DD tinychat a while ago and I wouldn't remember it because I'm not all that knowledgeable of their earlier stuff. He also breaks up that same solo a lot on the Division Bell during a lot of the song intros and of course makes some minor changes, though I think that was more symbolic. [editline]8th August 2011[/editline] Oh found it, Love Scene Version 6. Some people may not consider it that similar considering the song is totally different, but to me is it sound so very similar. Did he technically rip himself off? No, but he's using a ton of the same licks from that song in Shine On and when I first heard that song I felt like I was hearing the Shine On solo in a different genre.
So Some 3-4 years ago I discovered Dream Theater and since then I've not found any other music I really like. I'd find something, listen to it, go back to listening to dream theater and forget the other thing. This went on for years, and the last 6 months it's been agonizing because a man can only listen to the same music over and over a gain before it becomes sickeningly repetitive. I'm delighted and relieved to post that I've found a way out of this loop, guess what it is.
Whenever someone asks for music like Pink Floyd, people usually recommend Dream Theater. I'm big fans of both bands.

[QUOTE=Pepin;31620174]Whenever someone asks for music like Pink Floyd, people usually recommend Dream Theater. I'm big fans of both bands.[/QUOTE] what about King Crimson?
I wouldn't compare Dream Theater and Pink Floyd at all.
Dream Theater try too hard.
[QUOTE=killerteacup;31618672]Definitely not plagiarised.[/QUOTE] Yeah, the Gilmour one is longer and more rugged. [editline]9th August 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Pedro the Fuzzy;31620924]what about King Crimson?[/QUOTE] They were more Jazz, Hard Rock and New Wave oriented. Nop. When it's Pink Floyd... I'd think of things like Porcupine Tree, Hawkwind and stuff.
[QUOTE=killerteacup;31621490]I wouldn't compare Dream Theater and Pink Floyd at all.[/QUOTE] I definitely recognize some prog rock elements but yeah, it's pretty different. Especially dream theaters newer (and shittier(post 2000(with the exception of octavarium))) music, they've always been more prog metal than prog rock. Anyways, gotten through 3 albums so far and so far I think Time is my favorite song of all time.
Pink Floyd are in a league of their own I think with Prog. Probably because of the lyrical quality and the simplicity of their music. For prog its very very simple so much more memorable. Stuff like Dream Theater is so technical that it actually ends up shitting me. King Crimson can't be compared, nor can Genesis or Yes or ELP because the lyrics are so fantastical and the music so complex. When I think Floyd, I think of bands like Porcupine Tree and Radiohead because they can't be categorised into a singular genre or labelled in any way at all. They're really really unique.
Prog bands are all unique and insane.

Nick Mason can't even play in complex time signatures, and their songs don't necessarily progress all the time. No doubt their stuff have that Progressive Rock feel though.
Agreed. But hearing Piper At The Gates of Dawn and Animals, they're definitely prog/space rock. Everything else is more artsy though.

In fact its probably no coincidence that DSOTM was both their breakthrough album and the one that took a step away from prog. All of Pink Floyd has prog elements to be sure, like unusual time signatures (Money is in 7/4 I think, or something unusual like that) and extended instrumentals and long songs, but it sounds so unlike any other prog band that you can't really call them that. And I would argue that while all prog bands are unique they all share a similarity that makes them recognisable - Pink Floyd doesn't have that. So they could be called prog but they're very different to your average prog band.
Compare something like Close to the Edge or Red to things Pink Floyd have made. On Moon I think Time is very prog.
[QUOTE=AK'z;31624454]Compare something like Close to the Edge or Red to things Pink Floyd have made. On Moon I think Time is very prog.[/QUOTE] On the Run, Any Colour you Like, Speak to Me, Great Gig in the Sky are pretty prog Actually lets just class DSOTM as still quite prog
Great change in time signatures with On The Run yeah totally. :)
[QUOTE=AK'z;31624886]Great change in time signatures with On The Run yeah totally. :)[/QUOTE] I laughed, legit
[QUOTE=killerteacup;31624266]all of their early line up until Obscured by Clouds was prog[/QUOTE] I disagree, most of their early stuff was Psychedelic Rock, but [i]Soundtrack From The Film More[/i], Disc 2 of [i]Ummagumma[/i], [i]Atom Heart Mother[/i], and [i]Obscured By Clouds[/i] are pretty much standard Prog, so all in all they danced around it.
Psych/Space Rock.
[QUOTE=AK'z;31624886]Great change in time signatures with On The Run yeah totally. :)[/QUOTE] Yes, because all songs need time signature changes to be prog.
