I agree. Either way, they are both fine choices.
The wall for example I think is over rated and I really do not care for it as a whole but thats me.
Originally posted by badmoonPink Floyd was done when Roger Waters left*. Roger had the integrity to start a solo career. David Gilmour did not. Knowing that David Gilmour solo albums would not sell, he continued masquerading under the Pink Floyd name. Momentary Lapse of Reason and the rest are nothing but glorified David Gilmour projects. They are not Pink Floyd, regardless of what the label says.
Ok, Now why do you say that? What am I missing?

Anyone who likes the post Waters albums is not a true Pink Floyd fan.
Originally posted by Bosse de NageYes, it is possible to like the later albums, as long as you recognize them for what they are (or are not). If Gilmour had had the integrity to release them as David Gilmour albums, or under some other moniker, then I would have been an enthusiastic supporter. I have his 1984 About Face solo album and still enjoy it. I'd like to get a copy of his 1978 self titled solo project. Richard Wright has some solo stuff I'd like to hear as well. But calling the later stuff 'Pink Floyd' will forever leave a black mark upon them in my eyes.

The question of the 'real Pink Floyd' preoccupied me a very long time ago. Not only ...[text shortened]... s was and continues to be pants, while Dave Gilmour is nought but a fat get' approach.
