Artist of the Month Song/Album Polls - September '21 - Pink Floyd!

Post by Holden »

Following with the poll from last month, in which I asked you to post your favorite Marvin Gaye songs and albums in ranked lists and then compiled them, this month we will be moving on to the next artist on the list, Pink Floyd! Please post as many songs/albums in your lists as you would like! We'll only be doing studio albums, no live albums, so I'll post a list of eligible ones below. Thank you and have fun!

Albums
01 | The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
02 | A Saucerful of Secrets
03 | More
04 | Ummagumma
05 | Atom Heart Mother
06 | Meddle
07 | Obscured by Clouds
08 | The Dark Side of the Moon
09 | Wish You Were Here
10 | Animals
11 | The Wall
12 | The Final Cut
13 | A Momentary Lapse of Reason
14 | The Division Bell
15 | The Endless River

A note: the Marvin Gaye poll is going until the 7th of September, so that poll is not complete yet!

Hey, I just found a sympathetic link that allows you to see at a glance the albums and songs of Pink Floyd (and their rankings in Ultimate Classic Rock) and to pley them:

I can't hang with Artists #21-30 like I did with the previous ones, but I'm hoping to at least get it together for the Artist of the Month bonus games. (Like, I don't want to bother to figure out ten Nick Cave songs that I love, but I can probably listen to and rank the forum's ten favorite.)

The Dark Side Of The Moon is my favourite album by any artist. Love The Wall too. Wish You Were Here has the amazing Shine On... and title track, so like that. I also like early Floyd, but after that I really start failing to connect to other Floyd albums, and I've tried!

I would suggest that you start with the 5 songs from your list that are on the Relics album, then the 4 songs from your list that are on the Atom Heart Mother album.

Henry,

The song you have listed at #24 is actually Another Brick in the Wall, part 2, which you have listed at #8.

About prioritizing the remaining songs you want to listen to, I would give these pointers (which are personalized to my own taste, though they may work for you as well):

- The Atom Heart Mother and Obscured by Clouds albums offer plenty of enjoyable music. Quite a few of the songs you have listed there are from those two.

- The Final Cut album, in my opinion, is kind of like a third disc of The Wall album. So I would recommend listening to those two albums back to back and appraise the songs on The Final Cut accordingly.

- After Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in 1984, the band became a vehicle for David Gilmour's writing and performing talents, which is almost entirely different from PF's previous output. Still good enjoyable music, but it is mostly viewed as a rather Gilmour solo effort (kind of like Genesis after Peter Gabriel left and Phil Collins took over). So I suppose that's something to keep in mind when listening to their 1987, 1994 and 2014 albums.

Albums:

1. Wish You Were Here (1975, my #64 album of all-time)
"The child is grown / the dream is gone" sang Gilmour in "Comfortably Numb." Many albums you loved in your childhood lose the spark within a few years but it's not the case with "Wish You Were Here" for me. When I listen to this album I still recognize in me the child playing on air imaginary drums and guitars while religiously listening in the bedroom of my neighbour Vicent Lluís the records of his older brother. It hardly matters that some parts may sound today morose or self-indulgent, the child is still here.

2. Meddle (1971, #121)
After Syd Barrett's departure and before a period of three albums under the dictatorship of Roger Waters (and an epilogue of also three albums with David Gilmour as a leader), Pink Floyd was a band that worked pretty well as a democracy. My favourite three albums by them come from this "democratic period" and their earlier (and often overlooked) masterpiece is this one. The acclaim (and deservedly so) come mostly for the epic "Echoes" but the side A, filled by dreamy acoustic ballads, is no less masterful.

3. The Dark Side of the Moon (1973, #150)
The album that catapulted Pink Floyd into rock stardom came after six years of career and seven albums, being already seasoned musicians getting closer to their thirties. Eschewing previous lengthy jams and opting for a suite of songs shaping a concept album (until Waters' departure there were not going to release anything but concept albums) they peaked. It's amazing to see how an album so philosophically-charged could also be one of the most successful albums ever (now #6 on the best-selling albums list).

4. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967)
Syd Floyd was a different beast, they defined British psychedelic rock and predated space rock almost singlehandedly. Genius.

5. The Wall (1979)
It blew my mind as a teenager, probably my favourite album back then. Even if now I find it bloated I still like it a lot. Intense.

6. Animals (1977)
7. A Saucerful of Secrets (1968)
8. Atom Heart Mother (1970)
9. The Division Bell (1994)
10. The Final Cut (1983)

11. More (1969)
12. Obscured by Clouds (1972)
13. Ummagumma (1969)
14. A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987)
15. The Endless River (2014)




Songs:

1. Wish You Were Here (1975, my #102 song of all time)
Just before leaving almost all songwriting duties to Roger Waters, David Gilmour made a perfect collaboration with him here. Gilmour wrote the music, the acoustic guitar at the beginning of the song (smartly performed through a lo-fi radio equipment) should be lesson one for every guitar player, the entry ticket to a fascinating universe. And Waters lyrics about absence, even if initially aimed to Syd Barrett, have universal appeal. Not the most complex Pink Floyd song but surely the most emotional.

2. Comfortably Numb (1979, #188)
Only one of two Gilmour songwriting inputs on Waters' magnum opus, fitting anyway Waters' claustrophobic universe like a glove. The narcotic sound of the verses, the dreamy melody of the chorus and, of course, the two awesome guitar solos. I'm a sucker for David Gilmour guitar solos, these spare solos with long notes, long silences and glorious string bendings, going for the feeling and not for the technical displays. I'm aware this is the sound of the dinosaurs extinguishing but, what can I do? I love them.

3. Time (1973)
Quarter-life crisis came to rock music in 1973. "One day you find ten years have got behind you." More valuable than "Money."

4. Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Parts 1-5 (1975)
These four notes on the guitar, Bflat-F-G-E, still resonates in me like a mythical key to open the gate to the world of music.

5. Echoes (1971)
The song's working title was "Nothing" but ended being really something, a 23-plus minute epic that hinted at what was to come.

6. See Emily Play (1967)
7. Brain Damage (1973)
8. Summer '68 (1970)
9. The Great Gig in the Sky (1973)
10. Chapter 24 (1967)
11. Goodbye Blue Sky (1979)
