Pink Floyd is undoubtedly one the biggest and greatest rock bands of all time. Their rise was quiet but gargantuan. Forming in 1967 and quickly becoming one of the more popular bands of the UK’s underground acid rock scene, they would soon undergo a lineup change that would spur them in a new direction propelling them to legendary status. With the loss of Syd Barrett, entrance of guitarist David Gilmour, and position of creative leader falling to bassist Roger Waters, the quartet would go on to produce some of rock’s most intense, sprawling compositions to ever appear on vinyl. Loaded with political and philosophical subtext, the beauty of their harmonic soundscapes, deceitfully calming while intrinsically foreboding, Pink Floyd’s music is continually loved and puzzled over by longtime fans while blissfully rediscovered by every coming generation.
