Pink Floyd - Animals

Still on a Roger Waters kick. By this point, Waters was well upon a mental collapse: literally punching and spitting on fans at concerts yet his creativity was at its zenith

Pink Floyd - The Wall


Continuing on the Roger Waters kick.  Things were nearing a nadir as his psychological state completely deteriorated, a financial manager scandal costing the band tens of millions of dollars along with potential legal consequences, original members turning on each other and new powerful production personnel being introduced.  Literally the band needed a homerun just to avoid ruin and Waters worked like a man possessed to bail the band out and conclude Pink Floyd's existence.  Many people have panned this album including me but upon distance of time, it actually is a decent effort and tight, if overdramatic; reflecting the stress Waters was under and the decadence of the era.

Pink Floyd - The Final Cut


Clearly Waters was through and having been the creative, production and driving talent since Barrett, felt the band should cease with his exit (fact of the matter is he was probably correct).  He left all the band members well off, with a cemented reputation, numerous honours and essentially lifelong residual income streams.  Unfortunately, Gilmour had other plans for Pink Floyd....

A Momentary Lapse of Reason - "Pink Floyd"


Never has an album been so appropriately named - unintentionally, of course; while it was surely meant to allude to the band's break-up, rather it was the fake band pretending to be Pink Floyd that best personified the album's title.  Fake credits were handed out to original band members that at best had a de minimis role - simply, categorically, an all-around fraud.  Truth told, it actually a middling album by any other band's standard but comprehensively unworthy of Pink Floyd.  Even the best cut on the entire album can't match the worst on A Saucerful of Secrets: had it preceded Saucerful, one could discern elements of greatness that might culminate in the band Pink Floyd eventually developed but that would have been pre 1967, not 1987....

A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd


This was the last of Barrett as a Pink Floyd member.  It, however, is yet highly derivative of his influence with brief glimpses of the brilliance that was to come in future works represented in recurring note patterns occurring in songs and Waters' tracks specifically.  All in all, about on par with Pink Floyd's post Waters work from Momentary Lapse of Reason onward; while not a bad effort for a band finding its genius in the case of Saucerful of Secrets contrasted with simply cashing in on the fame from previous work in the case of Momentary Lapse of Reason.

More - Pink Floyd


The first album where Waters exerted his presence.  While of a period, it clearly has hallmarks of evolving the Pink Floyd sound.  Think it quite extraordinary for the time from such a young band emerging from losing its leader

Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd


Good God in Heaven, this changed everything.  It was a Water's Pink Floyd album with feint traces of musical industry elements of the day!  Some feel this the greatest album they ever released; while not in concurrence, it difficult to argue it not one of their best albums and established an entirely new music genre.

Meddle - Pink Floyd


Everybody involved with this project had to have known the band was on the precipice of legendary greatness.  Every track is perfection, losing comprehensively the limiting zeitgeist of the music industry.  The only element missing was a cohesive theme to the album....
