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.
Pink Floyd did this in its early years, but shed it down the line.
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:
Please, do go on, though.
This is most entertaining.
See 30 new posts. Thinks some huge Pink Floyd thing is happening soon, like a new album.
Pointless arguments only. :smith:
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
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.
Why is it that every five pages someone clogs this thread up with shit for the next five
another addition to the previous post after that ass ninja'd me,
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.
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
