Echoes and Ummagumma arey favourite era of Floyd. It is pretty impressive how they evolved as a band in a short space of time - like the Beatles did. Live in Pompeii is ace, watching a very stoned Nick Mason going on about pie crust, it's like Spinal Tap.

Ummagumma and Meddle are my favorites.

I'd say if you are into that era of Floyd, you have the necessary qualifications for future discoveries of BOC and Aphex. I'm pretty sure because I listened to a lot of Floyd as a youngster I was bound to end up on watmm sooner or later...

Very true. I think that whole thing of requiring patience and repeated listening to get the sauce maybe. I've just realised Echoes isn't an album, it's on Meddle, durrr.

just to add Andrew fuckin Liles again, keeps you busy with so many releases of outstanding quality, in the best traditions of the likes of Richard H Kirk but further out & more paranoid, love the rich resonance of tone his productions have (he can jig a bit like TPS in that Fenix sort of area) Played in Hackney recently w/Stephen Stapleton/NWW, missed it but eternally grateful to the universe for producers like these who continue exploring the possibilities of sound the way they manage

 

new bits are always a good day & thats only half the drug of opening the seal of a new record, rediscovering that again (kinda) + bought & found more good records in 2015 than many's the year, also trying to add new albums bought this year into mixes with much older records & finding certain blends = still 1 of the best therapies, finding new combinations and then forgetting them

 

good year for music, but isnt it always

Overrated: music that gets rated at all has the scientifically greatest chance of being in this category.

Underrated: music that doesn't get rated at all can, semantically, not-not be in this category.

Opinions, though occasionally amounting to a hill of beans, don't reliably measure up to the selfsame idiom.

dunno about you mate but its always a buzz finding things that have slipped below the radar and thats what a lot of threads like these offer up, those odd nuggets of "wtf is THIS?" that've been missed and its always nice returning the favour to the odd soul now n again too

Radiohead overrated? Whaaah?
Show me another massively popular band that made something as good as Ok Computer, Kid A or Hail to the Thief
I'm not an obsessive or anything but damn, I think they're one of those rare bands that deserve all the success they've gotten

agree, i echo this sentiment a fair bit. one of the very few that deserve the huge amount of hype they attract.

Btw new Radiohead jam just released this morning
(I think, at least...on iPad so haven't looked into it)

But anyway,
For any Pink Floyd skeptics
I'd say first that Pink Floyd had four phases
(Syd's show, 70's prog, Waters' existential laments, and then everything after that lol)
If you didn't like one phase, you'll still probably like another

Seriously, blaze a J and put on The Wall film
If it doesn't shake you to the bone, then I don't know what will

Well, it's one of those intentionally hyperbolic statements
Like "I'm literally starving to death...let's go to chipotle"
Language these days is like antibiotics
It's losing its potency
So we use stronger language to say what we mean
Which weakens language further...

If language is like antibiotics, then you can safely eat at Chipotle.
