Not worth comparing .....

One band is body & soul music the other is head music ....

As in givin' head to Steve McQueen music?

Like comparing apples to McDonald's apple pie.

One is raw and fresh, the other a bit over produced.

I do not understand the Pink Floyds' camp "school of thought." "Take a hit of acid and enjoy the experience of Dark side of the Moon"

In contrast, I feel "Exile on Main Street is wonderful, without any altered state of mind.

Pink Floyd: a band I like the idea of liking, but just can’t.

Despite what I stated in my earlier post in this thread, I do, however, quite enjoy the Barrett-era: Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Arnold Layne, See Emily Play, and the assorted B-sides: Candy and a Current Bun, etc.

The post-Barrett era is, to me, bloated, pretentious and beloved only by white, middle-class ex-University students. This isn’t meant as a slant against this particular demographic at all: it’s just my observation, going by those I’ve known to be fans of the group.

Albums like Obscured By Clouds, The More-soundtrack and Meddle are excellent, imo. In many ways, I like them better than the «classics» (Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall).

Hard comparison amigo.

Thanks, Dandy. I'm not entirely closed-off to the idea of investigating their output further. I've read lots of praise for Meddle, for instance.

I agree, they are like comparing apples w/ oranges, but still ... boring? Is the Stones Wild Horses boring? Some might think so but I sure don't, and I don't see much a difference between that track and Wish You Were Here -- both are great! And in this case I do see a comparison.

Okay, Wish You Were Here is a pretty good song. Hmm, I wonder if I should have a rethink. confused smiley

They're both bands of white, middle-aged British men. That where the similarities end.

If I may, I would like to come with a vital objection: In this case it is not a question about apples or oranges. Instead it is all about "Apples and Oranges". To be more spesific

When I hear Pink Floyd on the radio I change the station. when I hear The Rolling Stones I turn up the volume!

One’s reached middle-age by around 40. The Stones and Floyd are definitely elderly.

Some even believe that middle-age begins as early as your mid-thirties. As someone whose just reached their late-30's, I very strongly debate this! Forty seems about right, with old-age beginning at around the age of sixty-five.

Well, I am afraid I'll have to except that ... 7 years in old-age.
Doesn't feel like that though. Must be the Rolling Stones cool smiley

Folks don't really conform so much to the same ageist stereotypes as they used to. [we don't grow a tweed Trilby hat on our head at 55 any more either]

Some of my behaviours would be typical of an 18 year old ...and others perhaps more like an 80 yr old
