Over the year it seems that the argument is starting to be settled; Pink Floyd is one of the best and most influential bands of all time. There is plenty reasons to believe so, the meticulous riffs and solos done by David Gilmour, the unique vocals delivered by Roger Waters and David Gilmour as well and the unique “trippy” sounds they would create by simply experimenting with their instruments and software that they had at their disposal. Arguably one of Pink Floyd’s best albums is The Dark Side of the Moon which introduced a series of different emotions within the actual music itself. You start the album and you hear a voice yelling as it seems that you are falling down or riding some type of rollercoaster, once you finally break through, you begin to hear all the heavenly and even “trippy” sounds that Pink Floyd is known for. From Breath (In the air) to more enthusiastic songs like Money with the iconic 9 bass notes that everyone recognizes.

Another one of Pink Floyd’s best works is Wish You Were Here which brought in a lot of attention by fans. The incredible soloing done by Gilmour during Shine On you Crazy Diamond ( and all its parts) has gotten attention world wide

We can sit here and argue about what bands are better than others but Pink Floyd has definitely earned their 1st place in my mind due to their creativeness and their unique style that they introduced back in the late 1960’s and all of the 1970’s
