    Quite possibly. Don't get me wrong, Dark Side of the Moon is certainly one of the greatest albums of all time. And The Wall is also a classic. But beyond those, it's mostly just piles upon steaming piles of pretentious crap.

    What did the stoner Floyd fan say when he ran out of drugs?


    Wow, this music sucks!

    You are forgetting the album "Wish you were here"

    I also thought "Animals" was a good album.

    I think their other albums had some good hits, but it's tough to create what people would consider "Great Albums" when you have such albums like Dark Side of the Moon and the Wall.

    Michael Jackson had the same problem after Thriller (well that and the whole going crazy, children touching stuff).

    while it's true that I do enjoy some 80s hair metal I have to say that you are shooting blindly today.

    You're welcome to disagree, but IMO Floyd is way overrated. It's pretty rare these days for me to not click away when a Floyd song comes on the radio.
