I still love this era of Floyd more than any other. Have you seen the live in Pompeii? I like that Syd stuff but this stuff meets my needs even more. Too bad Roger Waters took over.
This is my favorite song by them ever from that Pompeii thing. I think metal bands have been secretly (and not so) ripping them off ever since then.
yeah- i love syd's era, especially stuff like interstellar overdrive, but some of it was more like goofy/maniacal pop songs, which i also love, but post syd/pre-darkside is my favorite era of floyd as well. so much exploring: ummagumma, atom heart mother, meddle, obscured by clouds- all so perfect and different and interesting. i like their later stuff, too, but i think the success of darkside really changed and possibly ruined them and they spent the rest of their time trying to repeat themselves.
