sorry all you heavy rockers out there - but pink floyd is the best. the best. the best. get their "dark side of the moon" and "wish you were here" albums, and listen to them.


i was once a thrasher. but now i'm a dreamy stoner.

i just love the way they slow it all down - it's like they're just jamming, but it's all real and practised. completely opposite to bands like Norther, In Flames, Linkin f*****g park and several others i daren't mention. it REALLY is good, realxing, wholesome music.

i have over 500mb of Pink Floyd songs. (All copied off my dad's records)

Pink Floyd rocks, but I wouldn't go as far to say they're the best.

yep, i have a load of albums too wardrich, and guess what? i got them from my dad's records too! by the way, if you listen to the first part of "shine on you crazy diamond" on the wish you were here album, right at the start, you can hear what sounds like the monkey island theme tune. about 2-3 minutes in, i believe.

and dopefish, that's cool, i'm just expressing my opinion. i'm glad you like them.

....I wouldn't say wholesome....

But, yeah, Pink Floyd rocks. My favorite songs are Money, Time, and Another Brick in the Wall.

So it appears that some of you youngin's are familiar with vinyl, nice Wink

Now how about asking your fathers if any of them have all the Half-Speed masters on vinyl as well Happy This is the sign of a true fan of Floyd or for any other band/artist for that matter Shit-Eating Grin

Also if you really want to get into Floyd, take a psychadelic trip down a few older albums like:

A Saucerful of Secrets
Umma Gumma
Obscoured By Clouds
Meddle
Atom, Heart Mother etc...

Pay close attention to tracks like Echoes, Careful With That Axe Eugene, See Emily Play, St. Tropez, Set The Controls For the Heart of the Sun and of course, Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pick Cool

Yes, good stuff The Wall is Wink

The first time I heard that track I thought the voice was saying something like:

"Beat your meat"

Just curious, but what's your vinyl copy set up: hardware (sterio system and computer), wiring, software... ? Are you mixing to WAV or going straight to mp3? Sample rates? Final resulting quality? Pop and scratch supression? Clipping points?

I'm always interested in other's archieving systems for old tech.

But note there IS a possibility vinyl will out last all electronic media, properly stored. For exampleI have several 100 year-old 78 rpm albums. Cool

Oz and everyone:
I've made a topic on this item here in the Music forum so as not to side-track the Floyd fans. We should move the recording tips banter to this location.

http://www.dosgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2156

Now back to the Floyd discussion!

Truth to tell I'm a bit more partial to Jethro Tull. But there are simularities.

All this Floyd talk and NOBODY mentioned The Wall? Or even Animals, for that matter...anyways, yeah, Pink Floyd's been at the top of my list for a while...art rock...rocks.

I've never been into the Syd Barrett stuff, though...way too much grunge sound to me...I guess I like Roger Waters the best, though I never liked how he kicked out Rick Wright...or how he left and tried to sue for exclusive rights...but it doesn't pay to let personality allow on to overlook his work...goddamned genius.

A friend just turned me on to "Dub Side Of The Moon" by Easy Star All-Stars. It's Reggae and "Money" has a very ex-spliff-cent intro.

I've just been getting into them. The only way to listen to them is to listen to the WHOLE CD at once.
