  • Counterbalance: Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'

    Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar. You're gonna go far, just like the 207th most acclaimed album of all time, Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.

    Mendelsohn: One more spin on the Pink Floyd space shuttle, Klinger. Are you ready? This will be the last go around. As much as I love this band, as large as they loom in my rock psyche, there aren't too many other albums in their repertoire that I think merit extended examination: maybe Animals, maybe Meddle, maybe even their late-game return with Division Bell. This week will mark the fourth Pink Floyd record we've discussed…

  • Roger Waters Slams Digital Music For Pink Floyd’s 50th Birthday

    Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters took a stand against the digital music empire in a new interview with The Times. “I feel enormously privileged to have been born in 1943 and not 1983,” he said. “To have been around when there was a music business and the takeover by Silicon Valley hadn’t happened, and in consequence, […]

  • The Westies: West Side Stories

    Michael McDermott's newest project is off to a promising start. If only it was a little more difficult.

    Somehow, West Side Stories ends up feeling like a cheat. It's a mystery: despite an interesting sound that combines all the best elements of bluegrass, country, the jazzier style of Tom Waits' early catalog, even, improbably, elements of late era Pink Floyd into a recognizable but also wholly original style, superb instrumentation that never fails to convey the worn-down atmosphere appropriate to the lyrics and the ghostly vocals of Michael McDermott and Heather Horton, The…

  • Bombadil: Hold On

    Hold On is full of perky, precocious and thoroughly engaging intent, an album with a more experimental nature that doesn’t diminish ample accessibility. Consider it a must-hear, even if for its sheer ingenuity alone.

    There are some bands that are simply so idiocentric they’re practically impossible to describe. It’s not a bad thing of course -- the same tag might have been applied to Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead or even the Beatles at one point -- but it does present a challenge when their handlers try to pitch an ensemble to the fickle masses as a whole. The band that calls itself Bombadil poses that dilemma, and despite…

  • Roger Waters Treats 'Amused to Death' to Deluxe Reissue

    Back in 2013, we reported that former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters was finally working on the follow-up to his 1992 effort Amused to Death. That planned album still hasn't come out and, in the meantime, Waters is in fact reissuing Amused to Death this summer instead. This remastered version comes out on July 24 through Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings. It will be available in several formats: CD, Blu-ray, digital download, 200-gram double LP, and double picture disc LP. The artwork has been updated (see the new cover above), the audio has been remastered, and the...
