    Whenever I see this thread it prompts me to listen to them, at the moment I am listening to the dark side of the moon and very good it is :)

    Darkened room, high volume, chill. It's all that's needed :thumbs:

    A couple of years ago a friend of mine died at the age of 41. At her funeral the main song was Wish You Were Here chosen by her boyfriend. They were both huge Floyd fans.

    Always makes me think of that day now :(

    Their choral progressions were absolutely beautiful. Amazing time signatures too for that time. 7/8 in Money...And back to 4/4
    Really very talented and amazing to listen to. The absolute best chill out music for me. Ever.

    I read that as 'Charcoal progressions' and was wondering if that related to some new artwork they'd released or and new Animal's related BBQ double gatefold :D

    What a difference 5 and a half years make. To think I was trying to convince butchers of floyds merits back then, when these days I am infinitely more likely to be listening to The Fall, and thats despite reading plenty of brain churning things about shit Mark E Smith said.

    I listened to Animals on Friday because of Trump's inflatable superimposed on the album cover (Battersea power station). First song learned on guitar was wish you were here...

    This song seemed rather apt for the current political climate theme

    It's for a certain mood, space and time. Didn't like their Sid Barret era but after that I loved them.

    I recently happened across "first time hearing" ( ....supposedly....) youtubes - which are apparently a thing - surprisingly entertaining watch

    I spend loads of time now watching black men listening to Pink Floyd records. Turns out they love them, with one saying he wished he'd discovered them as a young man, but that no one in his area listened to them at all

    7/8, 8/9 and 2/9 are pretty standard in turkish music tbh.

    I like to chill out to Penderecki these days.
