Yeah, don't really cut it i'm afraid but i'm gonna fuck off out of this thread now and give someone else a chance :)

frankly should've thought twice about being in it at all. There is nothing here for you.

It should be a draw, because the differences between the two balance each other out.
I'll name a few:



DUDE, this is straight up correct, the best way to explain a pink floyd vs led zeppelin thing, although in the end i would choose floyd but i still agree with you


The impressive thing for me with Led Zeppelin was how fast Jimmy Page was able to put it together in a summer and by the end of the year had a new album, and having this crazy-Beatles like schedule of touring and recording, and that's where Page as producer could work all that out while they were on the road, and when they wanted to just record at their leisure, he borrowed the Stones mobile studio and wired up Headley Grange.

Pink Floyd were given creative freedom, and I guess as long as they were selling albums that made it in the top 10, could keep going. Atom Heart Mother charted at #1 because Ummagumma had done really well, and peaked at #5. Not bad for a double album.

Funny thing - "Dark Side of the Moon" peaked at #2 in the UK, #1 in the US. "Animals" didn't peak at #1, either. "The Wall"? #3 in the UK, #1 in the US. "The Final Cut"? #1 in the UK, #6 in US.

That one was tough! It is a flip of a coin for me. I picked Floyd because I listen to them more right now.

Not a big fan of either, but I love The Wall.

Who doesn't? It's awesome.

I don't, The wall is mostly wank. Wish you were here and Animals are by far Flods greatest imo

Wall should've been a Roger Waters solo project in hindsight, but doubt we would've had songs like "Comfortably Numb" or "Young Lust" and some others. I know they're all proud of it, but it broke the band up. "Quadrophenia" is my favorite concept album, and the story was strong enough to turn it into a stage production.

I think "The Wall" movie should've been directed by Terry Gilliam, and would've been able to collaborate with Gerald Scarfe on the animation. Scorsese should've directed the live concert film when they played New York. I just think that was left in someone's hands that didn't know how to handle filming in an arena. I've heard about plans to try to use technology to fix the film and make it worthy of official release. Roger screened his copy with the band he's been touring with.

It's not my favorite album, but feel with what Roger's doing on this tour is cool. It wasn't intended to be just an album but a multimedia spectacle. Question is if he's planning on putting a production together where he doesn't have to be in it?

those are good too, they're all good. That run from Meddle to The Wall was by far Flods greatest. But nothing sticks above anything else.

No. There are many weak songs on the album, which are saved by the guitar work.

Tommy suffers from the same thing, but they're necessary passages to keep the story moving along. Rock operas tend to suffer from this more than any other type of album.

It prob. would've been more guest appearances, including Dave. Prob. Clapton and Beck, Andy Fairweather-Low. Doubt Comfortably Numb would've turned out the way it did. Roger doing all the singing would've taken the album down a few notches. Gilmour did a lot of the singing,but it was always awesome when it was the two of them.
