Maybe this new boxed set will be a more thorough representation of the band's history instead of just a Gilmour Showcase.
when the wall is there along with animals. when again besides AMLOR everything else is basicly
from the best era of floyd when they worked together the most.
3. PS how is the new pad going?
1. Because this is how I see it:
Gilmour's contention is that if Roger wanted to LEAVE the band, that was fine...what really pissed him off was that Roger had the balls to declare the band "over" when he left.
AMLOR was Gilmour's way of flipping the bird at Waters. AMLOR is a big "Fuck You, we're NOT finished" to Roger. The Division Bell was just to show that AMLOR wasn't a fluke...that Gilmour didn't just get lucky.
Now, let's break down the boxed set and look at it from the perspective of what I THINK it says:
ASOS: Gilmour enters and saves everyone's collective ass.
Meddle: Here's where the sound really starts to take shape (also, it's the first set of solos that Gilmour feels are really worth noting.)
DSOTM: Can't leave out the most persistent selling album of all time, now, can we?
WYWH: Gilmour is all over SOYCD and the title track...and although the other two songs are Waters penned tunes, Gilmour's stamp is all over them.
Animals: Gilmour wrote most of the music for Dogs and greatly contributed to Sheep and Pigs (3DO)...in fact, those songs would likely sound QUITE different without what Gilmour brought in.
The Wall: Without Gilmour there would be no Comfortably Numb, Run Like Hell or Young Lust; the lovely fretless bass on Hey You wouldn't be there; and even though Gilmour only has the three writing credits, that doesn't mean that he didn't help shape all the rest of the songs, you know. ABITW Part One is strictly Waters-bylined...but that's Gilmour's phrasing and delay. Besides...this is one of their most popular albums (thanks, I'm sure he thinks, to Gilmour's input,) can't really leave it out, now can we?
AMLOR: What happend to TFC?
Oh yeah...it's not Gilmour-centric.
THAT'S how I can say that. The Shine On boxed set, IMO, is nothing more than Gilmour Glorification.
If it were anything else, it would most likely have been a release of the COMPLETE catalogue...instead of just the bits listed above.
2. See above
3. Going great so far...I've only got a couple of more pieces of furniture to move in before I can really consider the move to be finished...but I've been living quite comfortably in it for the last few weeks.
I hope to have some pics of the pad soon.
