Wish You Were Here is gonna take a few more listens to click with me. Anyone here gonna buy the Immersion editions?
Hell yeah
On the subject of Wish You Were Here... If you listen to the original album version of the song, beginning at around 7:38, there is an extended part to the guitar solo. Whereas, if you listen to the Echoes version, this part is absent, skipping around to the vocals (around 8:48 on the original album). To be completely honest with you, I feel like on the original album version, that part was sort of out of place. The song as a whole was improved by the omission in the Echoes version. Somewhat. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
[QUOTE=Elecbullet;30918719]Myself, I only knew two songs (Welcome to the Machine, and Comfortably Numb). My mother had played Shine On You Crazy Diamond when I was young, and I realized this only after I became a fan. Then, I saw this video: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOorrHyw-IY[/media] An asteroid impact, set to Great Gig in the Sky. I immediately fell in love with the song, and searched for the album, which my parents luckily owned (along with Meddle, and The Wall, and Echoes: The Best Of). At some point I got a cool phone which let me listen to the MP3s all the way through, start to finish of the album. Then my transformation was complete.[/QUOTE] I got tears in my eyes when I saw that. Fukken beautiful. [editline]5th July 2011[/editline] Hakita my friend! You did a helluva job!

Should be interesting. You can still hear it on the original, except its just really really low in the mix.

I'm more excited for the new original material coming in the new remasters
About Face was great. I recommend it to everyone.
The front cover is also badass
[QUOTE=Hakita;30939285]About Face was great. I recommend it to everyone.[/QUOTE] Really is a lot more consistent than Momentary, also you see a lot more of his skills there.
How are the Roger Waters solo albums? Worth listening to?
[QUOTE=OctopusGuy;30943299]How are the Roger Waters solo albums? Worth listening to?[/QUOTE] Yes YES YES. Pros and Cons is beautiful.
Went into college for interviews today, and there were 3 other people wearing the same DSoTM shirt as me. Then someone pulled over to tell me how amazing he thinks Pink Floyd are. It was awesome
I would've yelled "AAAANIMAAALLLLLS!!!!!" at them. :smug:
Way to go Akayz, you spammed :smug: so much, garry removed it.
AK is just too smug for :smug: :smug:

speaking of flaws, I always thought DSOTM was less fun to analyse and talk about because it was such a flawless, solid album. Somehow that made it a little less to me than the other albums because there's nothing to say about, and everyone knows how great it is.
I work at a retail store with a large space reserved for CDs. Only 2 CDs were more than $15, some random old CD I've never heard of and Dark Side of the Moon. This is also counting brand new releases. Glad they still know how to value music, it's definitely worth that much.
Amused to Death is something I have lying around. Should really give it a proper listen

With some of their work, you have to change mindset to enjoy it. With Moon, it does all the work :)
Listening to DSOTM in its entirety for the first time (never really listened to a whole lot before, and I've only heard 3 or 4 songs on here) Hope it's as mind blowing as people say it is. [editline]7th July 2011[/editline] Huh, apparently went through 1-3 without knowing it. They really made it flow well, the transitions are godlike.

Such an amazing track.
i always knew of pink floyd, and always had one of their albums, never gave them much of a listen though. decided i would the other day simultaneously and i wasn't disappointed ;~) (dark side of the moon and the wall)
listening them simultaneously might not be such a good idea.
why the fuck did i say simultaneously. sorry its 7am i shouldn't be up. [editline]7th July 2011[/editline] randomly.* how is that?
consecutively would fit better
i personally don't think that fits very well..
I personally think you should listen to Animals. :)
