My favourite Pink floyd album is “music from the film More” ’cause it sounds to me very DIY produced and casual… And the music is so calmed and nice…

anyway , if anybody wants to get into them my suggestion would be “start from their first album and then on”… And read a bit about syd barret and their early days…

I think that’s a good way to approach it. I have been working my way through the Discovery box and it’s been great listening to their work evolve.

I would agree that starting with the first album is best. Early (The) Pink Floyd is amazing. I used to have it all on vinyl, but only have a few remaining.

It is my opinion that the “beginning of the end” was The Wall album. I started to lose interest in their new stuff after that.

 Only problem with that, is a lot of people can’t handle their early psychedelic stuff.  It may turn them off. I would suggest starting off with the classics and if you love ’em, you’ll venture deeper into the early stuff!

Just my 2 cents! brian-epsteinNot that it matters, the person who asked, did so in May of 2011

Good point.

It’s funny though, how the psychedelic stuff is what turned me on to them. They were first brought to my attention when I was a freshman in high school (1978). Of all the albums I heard that they released to that point, the most commercially successful of course was Dark Side Of The Moon and it was my least favorite. A year or so later, TW was out and it just seemed so fake compared to the stuff I liked so much. I will admit, at the time, seeing that movie on the big screen was a trip. I saw it twice when it first came out and haven’t seen it since.

FWIW, my favorite is Animals followed closely by Meddle and Obscured By Clouds. Wish You Were Here is in the team photo!

It is my highly unscientific observation, limited only to the members of this forum, that Harrifans are statistically more likely to also be Pink Floyd fans. 

Me, fabforemily, Egroeg-Evoli, Merch, and Zig…

I wonder, why is that? What do P.F. and George have in common? Perhaps it’s the slide guitar.

I’m still not talking to trc at the moment, so someone please inform him that I didn’t omit him because I amn’t talking to him– it’s just that he’s not a Harrifan. I was listing Harrifans who are also PF fans. 

Other non-Harri-PF-fans include trc, Necko, Linde, ExTex…

Uh-oh. Should I mourn Ringo’s losing a loyal Ringoist? Or should I rejoice that he is to be turned on to the true light of George-loving?

George was my favourite from way back when – I bought everything he did on release; same for Ringo. I champion Rings a bit more here as he needs the love; George has enough admirers as it is. They are about equal in my regard.

 

[EDIT] And on thread, just gave Meddle another listen – brilliant album.

*small voice* I like Pink Floyd and George and Ringo. TBH I get specific with Pink Floyd these days, there was a time when I couldn’t not listen to all of Dark Side or all of the Wall or all of Wish You Were Here..etc. And I didn’t listen to Animals for the longest time, and some of that is a bit of a chore if you’re not in the right mood for it, it’s good but I keep hearing bits of other albums in it. I bought Echoes because it had good copies of some of the earlier stuff like Astronomy Domine and One of These Days etc. My favourite Pink Floyd thing is definitely Pulse. Has its faults, but overall I’m very glad we have something besides Ummagumma. Also a vote for Meddle being another one you can listen to as a whole. It really is an unsung hero.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Agreed – though there are times that Seamus tries my patience – but then dogs often have that effect on me 😉

Me too, but I love the piano (and everything else) in that song.  It’s Floyd’s Honeypie moment!

I used to love playing that song when Sandi was young and would still think that it was a real dog barking. It used to drive her nuts. Dogs did too.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

I was listening to Meddle again last night. My son wandered into the room midway through Echoes and looked rather confused.

I told him the story of how I used to sit in the cinema transfixed during the segment of ‘Crystal Voyager’ which uses the music. He noted how strange I am sometimes but stayed to listen to the end.
