I will not go down the hole again good sir.

While I love the hell out of everything Pink Floyd ever put out, I am the weird dude who thinks Final Cut was the best album. The Gunners Dream being my favorite song.

I can't wait for this album, I have high hopes for it even though it is stuff that didn't make the cut before. It has been a good couple of years for old artists coming out with new material (David Bowie, Adam Ant, Thomas Dolby, etc...). Pink Floyd was pretty much the last band I ever expected to do it though.

EDIT: Really though, Rebuild The Wall by Luther Wright is the best Floyd album.

I'm just gonna leave this here with the comment that the album did yield the best backdrop film in the group and solo catalog.

The second-generation Pontiac Sunbird, introduced by the automaker for the 1982 model year as the J2000, was built to be an inexpensive and fuel-efficient front-wheel-drive commuter car capable of seating five.

I also really, really, really loving LOVE The Final Cut. While it isn't my favorite Pink Floyd album, it's amazing.

Though it is super obviously a Waters wank-fest and barely a Floyd album. But whatever, the dude is cool.

The Final Cut works really well when you are depressed but holy gently caress is it awful when you aren't. Fletcher is probably the best song on the album and the lyrics are so laughable. Not to mention the album is full of the Wall castoffs.

I enjoy Not Now John not as a serious song but as a totally ridiculous piece of entertainment that it is.

That said, I enjoy The Wall but I can't get over how Waters sings like a old man in it. What happened to his voice in between Animals and The Wall.

His voice never really changed though? He always kind of sounded like poo poo. I read somewhere that one of the first real divides of the band came during the recording of DSoTM because Waters wanted to sing in more songs. The other members of the band, who I guess held more weight at that time, persuaded him not to; but the egotistical maniac that is Roger Waters still was butthurt about it.

I also remember he got super pissed during the Live 8 reunion concert that the other members vetoed one of his songs because it was inappropriate for a relief charity (I think Another Brick in the Wall pt. 2, but it may have been something a little darker like Mother or something). I love him and can barely listen to non-Waters Floyd but the dude is a total rear end in a top hat.

Syd era best era though.

I'm not buying this story in light of the fact that Gilmour did "Run Like Hell" of all things at a Colombian volcano relief concert.

Man no wonder I loved the Wall as much as I did as a teenager dealing with depression, its like the Catcher of the Rye of music except objectively good.

On that subject, "My Bass And Other Animals" by Pratt is a good read, and has some great anecdotes about his time touring with Pink Floyd such as their game of how long they can stay stood up on Pink Floyd's private jet during take off and the time when he was so high he packed his luggage in a hotel whilst in a dressing gown, sent it off, then realized he had packed EVERYTHING and had to buy some travelling clothes from the hotel shop. Spoilering just in case.

He also played the role of Minty in the excellent TV show "Spaced", and did a lot of the music.

I went ahead and pre-ordered the blu-ray set. I have every other album from back when I was obsessed with them in high school.

Pretty neat that one of the songs is called "Autumn '68." "Summer '68" is one of my favorite Wright songs.

Me and a guy who used to trade Pink Floyd boots back and forth in the late 90s/early 2000s used to use silly return addresses; one I got from him was "The Unforgiven III: The Final Dimension". It's not as funny to me as it once was.

Can't wait for this. For years I dreamed of a new floyd album. This might be exactly what I want.

I love Gilmour when he's in floyd. outside of floyd I don't love his tastes because half his solo stuff just isn't what I like at all, and I know I sound heathen for saying that but it's really how I feel

Division Bell is underrated imo. Apart from a couple of tracks it's a great album and has a great feel. I suspect the same from this. at the very least some great guitar solos


This is the only Pink Floyd album that will be released in my lifetime that will be when I liked the band. It is with great regret that I don't have 10 tabs of acid to take before listening to it

Fletcher Memorial Home owns, but owns alone due to the solo. One of his best solos but far too short. Love the addition of the "guitar sounds" (fret noise etc) which isn't common for him.

The rest of the album bites, however. I can barely give it a second listen, and whenever I try to I give up

I like the title track and "The Gunner's Dream" a lot too. The rest depends on my mood. Sometimes I think it's a great album. Other times, I just get bored with it.

But those three songs are always nice to hear.

Here is every discussion about The Final Cut ever:

Person who likes Waters: The Final Cut is so good, one of their best
Person who doesn't like Waters: The Final Cut is boring poo poo

I've always loved Division Bell so I am suitably hyped up for this, although I really liked some of the more depressing songs (High Hopes, What do you Want From Me?, Keep Talking) so worried that it'll suffer for not having them.
