    If you really need drugs to enjoy music then you obviously lack any sort of real creativity or imagination.
    I am a very creative person. You're the one who thinks life is great without drugs.

    If you genuinely need drugs or any sort of artifical substance of any kind to TRULY enjoy life then you are a sad, strange little man.

    I don't have to, it's just an enhancer. To me, Pink Floyd sounds like any other 70's bands without weed. It's music for trippers, by trippers.

    What? The band swore off drugs after Syd went loco, Infact they didn't even do drugs BEFORE that, Roger smoked weed occasionally sure but only up to about 1970 or so.

    And yet Rick Wright was suffering from a cocaine addiction in the 90's. Good game.

    You called?

    On topic: you can enjoy Pink Floyd equally with and without drugs, but IMO listening to their music whilst toked doesn't necessarily enhance the experience, and is much riskier than just putting on a nice pair of headphones, setting the playlist to DSOTM, collapsing in your armchair, and then lying down without a care in the world for half an hour before waking up during the Any Colour You Like solo and remembering that you might have left the kettle on. Anyway: Pink Floyd =/= stoner music.

    PF is markedly improved by drugs, (though you can say this about most any music) though in no way does that imply you strictly need drugs to enjoy it.

    With this you needlessly conflate bands that happened to do drugs in some capacity, with bands that incorporated drug use into their music, public image etc.

    Pink Floyd did this in its early years, but shed it down the line.

    Pink Floyd are meant to be listened to under the influence. Basic chords and bullshit lyrics aren't a sober thing.

    you did not just fucking say that

    have you even read any lyrics?

    for example:

    "i have become comfortably numb"

    = i have become content and happy with the self-imposed isolation that has consumed me.

    are you really that thick? really?

    You've just proved yourself wrong by quoting Comfortably Numb. It's obviously a song about Opium.

    You're wrong, Have you ever even heard the Wall in its entirety? It is about a man who isolates himself so drastically and so completely that even HE realizes it is a bad idea, and Comfortably Numb is when he finally comes to a "well i made my bed i'll sleep in it" resolution, realizing that he is comfortable with his now-numb physical and mental status, he is lost("there is no pain you are receeding") in his own childhood memories ("when i was a child i have a fever") and how the doctor who has come to revive him to take him to his rock gig cannot relate or understand Pink's experiences, and how Pink is unable to understand anything the doctor is saying, since he is behind his mental "Wall" of isolation.

    While that interpretation may be internally consistent within the context of the song on its own, you should realise that when you listen to the Wall all the way through, Comfortably Numb becomes part of a larger story, in which drugs play only a tangential role.

    In order to avoid confusion it's polite to qualify "it's obviously about X" with "from my point of view, it's about X" or "to my mind, X is what Waters was getting at."

    This is exactly what Roger Waters intended when writing the album, And i am not pulling this out of my arse, He said the exact same thing(or the gist of it) in this interview with Tommy Vance:

    Storytelling is not constrained to book form. In fact, some of the earliest recorded stories we have are poems and songs.

    To be honest i think a new album would be terrible, PF had a great run as it is and i don't think they need to add any more to it.

    Unless it's a 5.1 mix of The Wall and Animals

    You clearly have not listened to Gilmour's last album.

    That's like saying they should have disbanded after The Wall.

    Screw the legacy crap and just show us that you enjoy making the music. They were way too obsessed with "releasing something that wouldn't embarress their memory as a band".

    I hate that. There are artists that can release 7 or 8 albums of high enjoyability in the space of 10 years and yet there was never any peace with their recordings.

    To tell you the truth, the only albums where they really were a band enjoying themselves was Meddle.

    I would have said Moon too, but there was still a lot of pushing and shoving in the making of it.

    Watching the Pompeii movie really shows them at peace as a band. That's the band I want to remember.

    My friend was wearing a DSOTM shirt, and he couldn't even name one song off the album.

    I hate when people wear band shirts, and don't even listen to the band.

    Are you intentionally saying things that make people angry, I think that is what you are doing

    Also fair sure it was Gilmour that had a cocaine addiction in the 80s and 90s, not Rick Wright, 5.1 mixes haven't been done properly for Pink Floyd generally and the new masters are superior to the old in loads of ways so bring on the rehashes, I say

    Anyway a new PF album would be shit. Waters is past his prime if he were to join up, and considering Rick is dead he would have to, because otherwise it would just be Gilmour and Nick Mason and I doubt that would be anything that sounds remotely like Floyd - Momentary Lapse of Reason being without doubt their worst album (though still decent)

    Rick was the soul of Pink Floyd
