Fantastic review for a nice background music album. I got into PF because of music that forced me into thinking about or (more even) feel things. Not only RW Floyd did it; Meddle did it, Atom Heart, ... man, even parts of More do make me react.

Not this one. One of the best floydian experiences I ever had happened while drifting into a nap with Echoes on, and dreaming of dinosaurs with it as background soundtrack. I am afraid this one would also accompany my nap, but with no dream at all, sadly.

My sophomore in high school we had a couple college guys who lived near us. One of them asked me one day if I’d ever heard of Pink Floyd. I answered that I’d heard of them, but I didn’t know their music. He put on Dark Side of the Moon, explained what the album was all about, and when it finished I was hooked. I rode my skateboard down to the record store and bought Meddle, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and, of course, Dark Side of the Moon all on cassette tapes. I spent countless hours listening to them on my Walkman, absorbing every note, lyric, and sound effect. The music reached inside of me, opening up my imagination, and connecting to me in a way no other music had. It instantly became a major part of the soundtrack of my teenage life. Their music helped me cope with my own self-conscience feelings, questions about the world and the people in it, and made me feel less alone during those wonderful yet painfully awkward teenage years. It took me away, speaking to me in a way my family and friends couldn’t. 

When band released the Momentary Lapse of Reason album, I was lucky enough to win tickets to see them perform at the Coliseum in LA. I took my neighbor as my guest as a thank you for introducing me to the band. If you’ve never seen a Pink Floyd concert, you have no idea what you’ve missed. I could do an entire post on that.

Only a few other bands or musicians (Rush, U2, and Joe Satriani) have reached me in the same way . And today, I came home both excited and sad to find the latest and last Pink Floyd album waiting for me in the mailbox. The band has announced that this is the last new music they’ll ever release, and while that makes me sad, I’m very happy to have something new from them. In the tapestry that makes up my being, the music of Pink Floyd plays a major part. 

And for that, I say thanks to Roger, Rick, David, and Nick. I know you’ll probably never see this, but you’re life’s work has left a lasting impression on my life. Dark Side is still my all-time favorite album, and I continue to draw inspiration and comfort from listening to all of your music.
