Not only that, but as awesome is Cream was, they are nowhere near Pink Floyd. It’s been many a year since I listened to them, on by happenstance I put on Wish You Were Here just now. It kind of takes your breath away hearing them again. That period from Meddle to The Wall… I don’t think anyone could argue that any rock band had better output.
Obviously they may not be to everyone’s taste, but there is no denying that level of quality.
I remember one of my good friends in high school showing me this album when it came out. Our group of friends would trip and watch The Wall sometimes, and listen to Floyd while partying, but I didn't like that album at all. I listened to it again after you posted it. It has artistic value, but it is literally just a rehash of elements of The Wall, but less interesting. Same style. I found it more interesting to listen to again, because it showed me how narrow and rigid Waters' songwriting talent is, and how great Gilmour is. Additionally, it showed me how limited and rigid Clapton is in his playing style, especially compared to Gilmour. While Clapton's playing on the album is perfectly serviceable, it is flat and uninspiring, at least to my ears. It left no doubt in my mind about Gilmour's superiority.
Clapton, for sure!
only in the beginning
Gilmour is my all time fav.
As brilliant as Clapton is, he peaked early, went pop and lived off his fame for a while. That being said, I saw him play a blues concert years ago. Other than Cocaine and a couple of other must-plays, he only did old timey blues songs and it was absolutely incredible. Jimmy Vaughn opened for him and came back out to finish with a few closing numbers. That was one of the most fun concerts I've ever seen and Clapton the blues guitarist blew away anything I'd ever heard Clapton the rocker play.
Pink Floyd was/is pop
Lmao @ anything pretending otherwise
Clapton is amazing though, he has rested on his name a bit, but Pink Floyd isnt exactly putting out bangers either anymore.
Glad you enjoyed Clapton
He was already trying to change his music up before Cream split up thinks to Music From Big Pink. That whole era forced ppl like him and Jimi into playing the way they did instead of sticking with their roots and good music was made but it burned Clapton out.
No, Pink Floyd was and is not pop, unless you’re using your own definition of what constitutes pop music.
They are pop sorry, they charted #1 5 times lmao
Music being “popular” isn’t what classifies a song as pop music.
Pop literally means popular lmao
It was pop, deal with it.
I mean you’re literally responding to a post that explains why your wrong, but you clearly have issues with reading comprehension, so carry on bud.
They're literally in the fucking genre it lists as pop during the time
Did you even read what you posted? It's pop. They charted as pop, were on TV shows "Top of Pop" etc. They were pop. Shut the hell up.
Gilmore for me
They’re literally not listed on any “list” I posted. Are you mentally challenged or just not used to being called out on your stupid opinions?
Let me help you out. Here’s another portion from what I posted.
Just google are Pink Floyd pop
You'll get every fucking pop thing they were a part of
Did pop magically become synth and electronic music because they moved away from instruments? Metallica is pop too btw, and they're metal. But still pop.
Once again, music being popular, or topping charts, is not what dictates what is categorized as pop music. You seem to be completely unable to discern the difference between a categorical title and what qualifies something to fall into that category. What do you categorize as rock music, music made by rocks?
