Animals is great. (currently) the only one of their albums I have on vinyl. I really find The Wall to be overrated, despite having some really good tracks. I just have to say I absolutely, positively, love "Careful With That Axe, Eugene". Mind-blowing psychedelia there. And of course Dark Side of the Moon is awesome.

I also have Animals on vinyl.  It's one of my top five favorite albums ever (behind Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, of course...).  It's not the only Pink Floyd album I have on vinyl, though.

My record collection is hundreds of miles away at my actual home (i.e. not my dorm room), so I can't check for sure which albums I have.  I am positive that I also own The Dark Side Of The Moon and Ummagumma on vinyl, though.  In addition, I have Roger Waters' The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking and David Gilmour's About Face on vinyl.  On CD, I have every studio album, two out of three of the live albums, and a couple compilations.  On cassette, I have A Momentary Lapse Of Reason.

"Careful With That Axe, Eugene" is a pretty cool song.

'More', ExTex? I personally find it quite a poor album. What is it about it that makes it your no5 PF album? I mean, most people would put Dark Side and Wish... up the top of the list. Or did you say a while back that you don't like their more well-known stuff? I can't remember now...

 

I love Cirrus Minor, The Nile Song, Green is the Colour, and Cymbaline.  The album just has a really nice sound/style in my opinion. It's not the "classic" Pink Floyd sound but it stands out for some reason.

I don't mind the later stuff, I just prefer the early albums.  I don't listen to anything after The Wall, although I liked David Gilmour's "There's No Way Out of Here."

To me, before and after Meddle they are a different band.  I have to be in a certain mood to hear Animals, Wish You Were Here, etc.  In a way, I have heard those songs on the radio so many times that they are not as special.

Yeah, I think I know what you mean. I almost thought I was listening to a different band the first time I heard More. It's good to come across someone who really likes it though. Like I said, it's fairly decent and not very well known I don't think (I suppose it would've helped if the film had been a success). It just sounds too much like the soundtrack to a film to me (I thought it might be before knowing about the film).

I avoid listening to PF on the radio for precisely the reason you and Linde give -  if I listened to certain songs of theirs (and Led Zeppelin, too, though a bit less) too often then they'd lose the special feeling I get when I hear them. Plus, like you, I have to be in the right mood. I can listen to the Beatles no matter what mood I'm in; the two are different in that way.

Yesterday I watched the Wish you were here docu and when I told my parents I didn't like WYWH and SOYCD that much they kind of looked at me as if I was mental.

 

I still love the story of Syd coming in the studio in 1975, looking completely different and them not recognizing him and all.

I can kind of get that; they're two of their most popular tracks, and well-known and ''critically acclaimed'', so to not like them is a bit strange. I love them, both of them. They're those kind of songs when I cry, and I don't really know why.

The story of Syd turning up just makes me really sad. I wonder what must've been going through his mind as he went back there and saw ''his band'' (as he always regarded them) playing this music that's so vastly different to the stuff they did with him, and seeing his old mate doing his job... I just feel so sorry for him. From what I can gather he was the kindest, most down-to-earth and talented man, and that happened to him. I just feel so sad. It's kind of like if, say, John really got a taste for LSD and he wasn't in the band for half of the Beatles' career. So sad.

Was there some sort of Pink Floyd anniversary on Friday? While I was at work, Sirius XM's Deep Tracks played Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety - twice, I believe. It was weird, especially given the Beatle anniversary taking place.

Nothing particularly special that I can think of, though I'm terrible with dates and events. I'll have a think about that one, though. Things like this bother me greatly.

Earlier today, I listened to

and

Good albums.  A Momentary Lapse of Reason may not be their best, but I do feel it's pretty under-appreciated.
