can't disagree, AC/DC has ruled since they established. still played, still touring, and hats off to any band that I know your tune within 3 notes of the opening. (and hats off to any da** lead guitarist who can pull off wearing a schoolboy outfit, that's bal**y)

Re: this or that

Rush or Floyd....Rush holds a dear place in my heart, got me through many younger years as an angry young one.....the musical precision gave me a channel to focus on (bad amateur drummer here, butchered many Rush tunes. Never got my press rolls right..sigh). Bad keyboardist too, I bought an Oberheim Matrix to get the Rush synth sound. eta: points for Rush changing time signatures in the middle of songs, I love that complicated sheet.




Floyd...I have no negatives, it's pretty much perfect music.

Re: this or that

Tough call, both are absolutely phenomenal at what they do. They do vastly different things, though, albeit under the very large umbrella of Rock & Roll.

Other than changing lead guitar after the first album, Rush has been the same three guys for their entire existence, and to be fair, unlike almost all rock bands, the lead guitar player was the background/pocket guy anyway. Pink Floyd has gone through more personnel changes than i can easily recall.

Rush always had vision, and one thing that i value very highly in rock music: velocity. Velocity implies not only speed, but direction. PF often had a tendency to meander a bit.

The flashes of pure brilliance shown by PF throughout the years outshine anything Rush ever created, and that's saying something, because Rush has had some impressive flashes of brilliance themselves. If the PF catalog was limited to Dark Side, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and Division Bell, the decision would fairly easily go to them.

However, they also released a bunch of stuff that is not as enjoyable as any Rush album ever, and some of it is almost unlistenable. A Momentary Lapse of Money is an album that performed well commercially, but i personally don't care for it as a whole. Obscured By Clouds is little-known, and it meanders quite a bit, but i enjoy it in limited doses. There are a few other albums about which it is difficult to say anything positive.

Rush has a higher bottom line, in other words, but they also can't reach as high.

In terms of personal taste, i prefer Pink Floyd overall, but i can understand and appreciate that there's a solid argument for Rush.

Re: this or that

nicely stated Mr Mo. Gotta admire both bands carving niches for themselves - you hear a bit of their tunes, you know who the band is immediately.

eta: think you mean "momentary lapse of reason'
