Beatles, though I do like Pink Floyd I just dont think they have more than 3 classic albums (Wish You Were Here, The Wall and Darkside). The Beatles got Revolver, Sgt.Peppers, The White Album, Rubber Soul and Abbey Road

Agreed.

Never been much of a Beatles fan, or Stones fan.

I was listening to Atom Mother Heart in 4 channel on my quad the other night, stoned as an unfaithful Iraqi woman. Righteous.

I've never really "got" the Beatles like a lot of people seem to, so my opinion doesn't really count for much.

I just feel as though, while their music is obviously extremely influential, it never blows my mind. In context i'm sure it was amazing, but as someone who only had the opportunity to listen to their music from the 90's onwards, it has mild impact upon me.

I prefer some Beatles solo shit to their album material, which is probably an indication of insanity to most Beatles fans...whatever though.

However, listening to Pink Floyd for the first time, or on any occasion thereafter has generally blown my mind.

You're hard pressed to find music that sounds like Pink Floyd, their music has a quality to it which is rarely emulated.

Although I agree Pink Floyd are one of the best in their category, there are a lot of bands (mostly unknown) that sound a lot like them, some copied their style, some were doing it before Pink Floyd existed. They're not completely unique, but the same goes for the Beatles.

I think it all boils down to whether you like poppy singy songs or long symphonic songs. I prefer the latter.

Longbongcilvaringz
09-18-2009, 06:00 PM
You think so?

The only bands i've heard that capture a similar sound are heavily influenced by them.

I'm not saying there weren't bands previous that had that sound, i've just never heard them (i'm referring to Dark Side of the Moon/Wish You Were Here/Animals era Floyd in that respect, the earlier stuff is comparable to a lot of other musicians)

Put me onto some.

I'd say PF were definitely more original than the Beatles, but that's only my opinion i guess.

I don't know, i think most big fans of the Beatles would be less likely to appreciate Pink Floyd, and visa versa.

Their musical styles are so different, to enjoy listening to both a lot seems rare to me.

Obviously there are people in the middle though.

I think Stones Vs The Beatles is always going to be a much closer thing.

Me too.

Regarding the poll, Floyd by miles for me. I feel pretty similar to Bateman. The Beatles are obviously legendary and at the time their music was surely innovative and ground breaking, but as somebody born in the 80's I've never really been all that into them. They're good. I enjoy their music. But I've never collected their albums or anything. Floyd on the other hand I'm pretty well obsessed with.

Though even to compare Sgt Pepper's to Piper, which are not all that different a sound, I'd still go with the Floyd album without a second thought. If Syd Barrett hadn't lost his mind then the Floyd may well have even retained a sound more similar to the Beatles, instead of heading in the direction they did under the influence and eventual rule of Waters.

I'd say PF were definitely more original than the Beatles, but that's only my opinion i guess.
I was talking about the earlier Space Rock PF stuff, that style has been done by many other artists even before they did. So they weren't really that unique back then.

But since Dark Side of the Moon, Animals etc, they started sounding more experimental and unique. There will always be other artists that sound similar and it's hard to say who influenced who, but PF are the best in their sub genre.

If you want to listen to some bands that Pink Floyd fans would like, I could list a few:

Eloy
Hawkwind
Far East Family Band
Galactic Explorers
T2
Spectrum
Man
The Old Man and the Sea

There are so many. Here are a few links where you can download and read about bands from the good old times.

Is there any Beatles material in 4 channel?

I just downloaded DSOTM in 4 channel. It's directly recorded from the master tape by Alan Parsons. And I happen to have the same type of studio speakers they used back then, 4 of them, plus a professional soundcard.

I'm sitting here getting stoned and there's nothing like this. If the answers to my question is no, remove the Beatles option from the poll.

Interesting topic. The Beatles definitely have ridiculous amounts of great music, White Album and Magical Mystery Tour in particular i never get tired of hearing.

But the three Pink Floyd albums i like (Dark Side, Wish, Animals) and the odd other tracks i like are just absorbing, moving experiences that i don't get from a lot of rock music. After those three albums, Roger Waters became a cunt, although i guess its always there in his lyrics (a preoccupation with misery and nihilism). But for a while they were just incredible.

i'm a big fan of the beatles and pink floyd. i'm going to tell you the real truth. every album pink floyd released after syd barrett left is overrated. the only album by pink floyd that is worth mentioning as a classic is the piper at the gates of dawn as well as their early singles compilation. rubber soul, revolver, sgt. pepper's lonely hearts club band, magical mystery tour, the white album, and abbey road are all classics. the beatles have six classic albums and pink floyd only have one classic album. don't pretend that meddle, the dark side of the moon, wish you were here, animals, and the wall are classics because they aren't. they all don't even come close to being as good as the piper at the gates of dawn.

You're definitely in the minority with that, Floyd made 3 incredibly powerful albums that are almost unmatched in my mind. A lot of people would say The Wall is classic too but its too relentlessly bleak and joyless for me to listen to, maybe a few songs from it.

i guess you say you're a big fan of pink floyd, but even people who aren't big fans rate all those albums as arguably classic. early PF is nursery rhymes psych rock, some of it's pretty good, some, pretty bad.

i don't know, still haven't listened to much beatles, probably never will.

Holy fuck. Can't believe I just came here by chance and witnessed this comment. Wow.

You've just listed probably my top 5 albums of all time there. Maybe something else could just edge in there over 'Meddle'. Maybe not. The Floyd were untouchable at their peak imo. One thing I would certainly never hesitate to say is that they mastered the art of making albums better than any other band in the history of music.

Everything The Beatles did from 'Revolver' onwards was brilliant, and I could pretty much complete my top ten list with those albums, but as far as putting whole, cohesive albums together goes, they just had absolutely nothing on The Floyd.

"Don't pretend" those albums "are classic"...Holy fucken shit. That's just utterly hilarious.

Note: Pretty sure if you go back in this thread I would have said I wasn't big on the Beatles. That was back when I only knew their famous songs and the only actual album I'd heard was Sgt. Pepper. I have since gotten right into them and they have been by far my number 2 band for the last couple of years.

Everything The Beatles did from Rubber Soul (British discography) was brilliant besides Yellow Submarine, and they did classic after classic in the space of 4 years

1965 Rubber Soul
1966 Revolver
1967 Sgt Pepper's
1967 MMT
1968 The Beatles
1969 Abbey Road

That's more good albums in 4 years than most bands ever make. Then there's Let It Be which is still good.

I love both bands though so it's no contest for me I just enjoy both but between the two bands George Harrison has the best album.

It's always funny when people diss The Beatles then give them a proper listen they change their mind fast.

I never actually dissed them but I wasn't really interested in them because I thought they were just a pop band who made a lot of catchy tunes. When I actually heard albums like 'Abbey Road' and The White Album it was just like whoa, hold up a second. They were brilliant.

The Hound
02-25-2014, 05:47 PM
Nah noel I wasn't referring to you or anyone in here in particular just making a general statement from experiences with mates. They diss the Beatles saying Beatlemania was simplistic gay shit or they're overrated because they're popular so that means saying otherwise means their opinion is superior, then they actually listen and it's like "oh shit they really were that good"

Some faggot tried to tell me The Beatles were the one direction of the 60's smh

Let It Be, I love it but I guess I didn't throw it up because by then it's 4 individuals doing their thing instead of a band being cohesive.

You are right about Pink Floyd, they mastered the art of cohesive albums. I always thought of DSOTM as one beautiful song instead of an album.

ATMP, I really think that holds up against either The Beatles' or Pink Floyd's catalogues. On par with a few classics. That album slapped all the people who say "George Harrison has the weakest song on every Beatles album" big time.

And as a hip hop fan I really love that John Lennon dissed Paul McCartny on record haha

noel411
02-25-2014, 06:14 PM
Yeah dude, I know you weren't referring to me. I was just sharing my personal experience.

It'd be easy to diss the Beatles because of their reputation. Without actually listening to their albums it's easy to just dismiss them as throw away pop, because a lot of their really famous songs are just catchy pop stuff, and then there's the whole Beatlemania teeny bopper thing. Anybody who has ever heard the second half of their discography and doesn't recognise their talent doesn't deserve to listen to music though.

I think the White Album was pretty much 4 individuals doing their thing too. Probably not as much so as on 'Let it Be', but not far off.

Yeah ATMP is amazing. I only wish I had it on vinyl. I'm not sure about the track listing on cd. My track listing might even be fucked up. I don't have the original. Just a file of it I got from a friend's usb drive. I understand it was a triple LP when it was released. My cd version has what must be one full LP of studio tracks and a few acoustic versions of some of the songs on the end, on disc one, then disc 2 is what must have been another LP of studio tracks followed by some instrumental jams. One day I must burn it as 2 separate studio albums and a disc with the acoustic tracks and jams on a third disc. I imagine that's how it would have been released originally.

lolz as far as I know John Lennon invented the personal diss track. I don't know of any earlier instances of a diss track about another musician than that one.

02-25-2014, 07:15 PM
Doesn't Lennon come off like an asshole for dissing Mccartney?

Help! is probably as far back as I will go for The Beatles although I did enjoy individual tracks from previous albums. Rubber Soul onwards is almost like a new band. It's incredible that they did everything in about 7 years. It basically took Pink Floyd that long just to get to DSOTM.

I think the White Album was pretty much 4 individuals doing their thing too. Probably not as much so as on 'Let it Be', but not far off.

Word. That was the beginning of the end for them and tbh I rarely listen to The White Album in one sitting that's usually my go to Beatles LP for individual songs when I'm out and about where as Sgt Pepper's I rarely listen to an individual song but that album flows together so perfectly on some Pink Floyd level but I rarely listen to Pink Floyd songs individually, save for Time which is just amazing I could listen to that all day.

Yeah ATMP is amazing. I only wish I had it on vinyl. I'm not sure about the track listing on cd. My track listing might even be fucked up. I don't have the original.

It sounds like you might have the re-issue? There was a 30 year anniversery remake I think which had an updated cover and heaps of added demo tracks n shit. I'd love to get it on wax too but I'm not interested in the reissue because it's usually like $70 and all of those extra tracks

My version has 23 songs I think that's the original 3xLP listing. 14 songs on disc 1 and 9 on disc 2. I've got a burnt copy too so idk if that's just how it was burnt or if it's the proper listing

lolz as far as I know John Lennon invented the personal diss track. I don't know of any earlier instances of a diss track about another musician than that one.

LOL

I love the idea that the guy who did "Give Peace a Chance" and the bed-in's conceived the diss track concept. It was pretty good too "the only thing you done was Yesterday" hahaha ouch!

02-26-2014, 11:54 PM
Yeah to be honest I never really thought much about what a short duration the Beatles dropped all their albums in. That's pretty impressive. Surely wouldn't have helped as far as keeping the band together goes though.

For me the big change came with 'Revolver'. I think most people would agree though that 'Rubber Soul' was really where they got it together. I like that album, but nowhere near as much as the ones that followed. The early ones I think are more of their time. Back then they were ground breaking, but unless you lived it back then I think they sound a little basic and outdated now.

I love the chaotic nature of the White Album. It's all over the place, and yet comes together as a whole brilliantly. There never was or will be another album like it, I don't think.

I personally think it's criminal to listen to any Floyd song from their classic albums, individually lolz. For me those albums have to be listened to in their entirety. The idea of a "Best of Pink Floyd" compilation is very unsettling to me. It's just not right. The early and later albums sure, I listen to selected songs from them often, but never their classic albums.

The guitar solo in 'Time' is pretty much the reason I started playing guitar. Eventually learning to play that solo was hugely rewarding. I just wish I could get something even close to the tone Gilmour used, out of my amp.

Yeah I'm gonna burn that ATMP shit as two studio albums and a disc of extras if this heap of shit will burn it for me. Those extras need to be separated. I fucking love those acoustic tracks though, and as a guitarist I rather enjoy the jam tracks too.

I think in its way the McCartney diss track was pretty brutal. It's not just straight up insult shit like hip hop. That shit was personal and pretty fucking harsh really. I read that originally Lennon had written even more brutal shit but the other guys playing on the song (pretty sure Ringo was one of them), talked him out of using a lot of the harsher lines.

I'm not big into Syd Barrett stuff, although he was very creative and he set the wheels in motion for a lot of their work since a lot of it was inspired or about him.

I'm not. They were much better off without him. If he hadn't lost it there's no way they would have ever become the brilliant band they did. They may have been otherwise great, but nothing like what they were with Gilmour in place of Barrett.

Piper is a cool album, but it's got absolutely nothing on the albums mentioned earlier. I actually even like Saucerful better.

McCartney also dissed Lennon, on his 'Ram' album, he just did it in more of a subtle way... throwing subliminals!! "Too many people preaching practices"... and... "You took your lucky break and broke it in two" are two lines that McCartney himself confirmed were aimed at Lennon.


The Beatles were pretty much working separately from Sgt. Pepper onwards really, save for a few occasional collaborations when one would help finish the others song/lyric...

I love 'The Ballad Of John & Yoko' track though, one of the last real Lennon/McCartney link-up's, not in a song writing sense, but recording wise as they are the only two Beatles that appear on that track. Lennon on vocals and guitar, McCartney on harmonies on the last verse, as well as bass, drums and everything else you hear. Awesome track!!


I'm reading a book about the legal battles after the Beatles split and it is amazing to read the stuff that went on. It's called 'The Battle For The Soul Of The beatles'... crazy shit!!!


ps. I don't like PF... at all... I voted Beatles!

Revisiting this thread after listening to Pink Floyd non-stop for the last week...

Why were these two bands chosen against each other? They're literally polar opposite. Most Pink Floyd songs are 5 minutes or (much) longer whereas off the top of my head I can think of two Beatles songs significantly longer - Revolution 9 and I Want You (She's So Heavy) with A Day In The Life scraping in at just over 5 minutes. I guess it's hard to be blown away musically by a 2-3 minute long song but I always felt The Beatles' biggest strength was their lyrics.

Anyway, the real point to bumping this is after thrashing the PF catalogue for a week I can't believe anyone would say PF peaked at Piper. Syd Barrett was more influential to the band after he left than when he was with them. DSOTM, WYWH, The Wall are essentially all about Syd Barrett. Not always directly but because of him. He's the symbol in a way, a way to make the lyrics a reality. Never could greatness of that 4 or 5 albums be achieved if he hangs around the band probably disintegrate in to nothing and they go in their separate ways.

I always felt The Wall was overrated but thus last week I've come to love it.

I was watching a live David Gilmour dvd last night, where he performs the whole 'On an Island' album and some old Floyd favourites. Holy fuck that dude just has the most ridiculous touch on the guitar. His playing is utterly exquisite. It's just all feel and emotion, without the flashy, feeling-less speed shit most skilled guitarists play. He's the most emotive guitarist I know of. He's the reason I first picked up a guitar myself and is still by far my favourite guitarist.

The Hound
07-12-2014, 11:53 PM
I agree with you about Dave Gilmour being a great emotive guitarist. Probably the only other guitarist I feel that way is Eddie Hazel of Funkadelic. The guitar solo in Time just bleeds emotion, I've been listening to DSOTM for nearly my entire life and that solo still hits me the same way it did when I first heard it with developed ears.

the piper at the gates of dawn's sound is closer to the beatles psychedelic sound which i prefer and pink floyd were influenced by the beatles. i like several of the psychedelic albums from 1967 better than the pink floyd albums of the 1970s.

Fair enough, that's how you like it.

TBH the Pink Floyd psychedelic stuff is why I love the post-Syd Barrett era because they defined their own sound. The way their albums are symphonic and almost like 1 song that goes for 40 minutes as opposed to a couple of individual songs, the darker subject matter, that's the real Pink Floyd for me.

I like their earlier stuff too but it feels more at home from Meddle to The Wall for me.

i think what syd barrett meant was it sounded more mature and different, which doesn't mean it's bad. syd barrett just prefers making weird songs like captain beefheart and frank zappa. the beatles were weird in their psychedelic years too. they're all cool musicians. there was nothing musically wrong about them.

George Harrison is dope. It's crazy that people always refer to him as the 'weak link' of The Beatles, WTF? I can't remember if I read that George Harrison always had the weakest song on a Beatles record on this website or on youtube but that is mad dumb. As I said earlier at least when it comes to The Beatles solo + group works I think ATMP is the best album. I don't think there was a 'best' from The Beatles though, all 4 were amazing.

George was easily the most under appreciated member though.

The guitar solo in Time just bleeds emotion, I've been listening to DSOTM for nearly my entire life and that solo still hits me the same way it did when I first heard it with developed ears.

That's my favourite guitar solo of all time. That solo is what first made me really start taking notice specifically of what the guitar was doing in music. It's actually technically not hard to play, but to play it like Gilmour...forget it.
I can't remember if I read that George Harrison always had the weakest song on a Beatles record on this website or on youtube but that is mad dumb.
lolz @ anyone who would say that. It probably was on this site. Even Paul McCartney said that George's songs in the later years were at least as good as his and John's.

Time is easily my favourite guitar solo of all time as well and my second favourite is probably Money lol The only other guitar solo that gets me the same way as Time is 'Maggot Brain'

I'm sure somebody could find 10 examples of better guitar solo's but for me I've never heard a guitar solo tell its own story. And fuck I love the part of Dark Side of Oz when Time plays and Dorothy meets Professor Marvel :lmao:

Dave Gilmour is there with Tony Iommi and Eddie Hazel as my favourite guitarists.
