The question is, do you have a dark side???
And what does this album mean to you??

True we all do.

I've just finished reading a book(4th time) called Alone with The devil.It's a book written by 2 shrinks who have interviewed some of the most crazy killers in America.

The Dark Side comes out in all of us once in awhile,but most of us don't go over the edge to being mad.

Some people like Roger write about such things.

And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the Dark Side Of The Moon

So obsessed with coherence it forgets to have any character

I recently realised I despise this album

I WENT And saw floyd two nights in a row in sept '72
and this was the first time i saw them
i was 18 and had been a floyd fan for five years already
ever since piper came out

and they started off with playing this whole album
but, since you'd never heard it before,
when you left the theatre
you couldn't remember any of it

the day it hit the shelves
in jan '73
the friend who had hitch-hiked to san francisco with me
to see them the previous sept
knocked on my door
(of the first apartment i ever had on my own)
and handed me the album
and then it all came back when i played it

so the album has a special place in my heart

but i remember thinking only the short piece "on the run"
sounded super trippy
and the rest sounded depressing and sad
and mellow

which was fine
but i was hoping the album after meddle was gonna be unbelievably wild and weird
that's what you want when yer an american male teenager
wild and weird-assed and trippy as hell

i didn't realize that this album marked the absolute end of floyd as a collaborating unit

that's why i posted mostly in "everything else"
the band i loved ended 34 fucking years ago

Was only two and half when my dad brought the album in 73 and the haunting meldoies and music moved me and i was hooked on floyd from that moment on!

Have always loved the album dont understand how anybody can not like this album, it was the album that broke floyd to the masses!

The concept of the album is simple life n death and what happens to us in life!

It's not a question of liking the album, it's hard not to.

The problem is, it was a major departure from Pink Floyd's traditional collaboration and style. When Dave took over from Syd, it was a major major improvement in the music, but stylistically they carried on in Syd's aka PF style. DSOTM and The Wall threw Syd and all that was built from that foundation under the bus.

The band then became Roger Waters and The Rest.

Not Pink Floyd.

The courts agreed, which is why Dave got too keep the name.

After some drifting, TDB was a return to those roots, and a rejection of the Waters Style.

IMO

So I guess if departing from the traditional Pink Floyd style so it was acceptable to the masses was the goal, I'd have to say Mission Accomplished.

On the other hand, If If the goal was to retain what was uniquely REAL Pink Floyd, how can you say anything other than total failure?

And as I have posted elsewhere, if railing and complaining about the heroics of one's father is what life is about, I guess I missed the boat. I'll take the evening I just spent with my grandchildren all day everyday. And I'll be the first to admit, you have to be an Old Geezer to appreciate that.
