40 years of evolution
With Pink Floyd, here is the perfect
example of a band which was able to renew itself and evolve constantly for
40 years (or we should say 30 years like they didn't release any new
material since 1994). Under Syd Barrett's leadership, the band started in a
psychedelic direction. After his departure, David Gilmour's integration was
perfectly executed and the band developed an atmospheric progressive rock
sound culminating with the album The Dark Side of the Moon, one of
the best albums of all time.
Later, Roger Waters takes definitely
the control of the band in which he can show his own ideas and vision. The
band took a pop direction, especially on a couple of tracks of the album
The implosion of the band in the
early 80's was inevitable, but was only a way to a new Pink Floyd era, a
band without Waters and leaded by Gilmour. That line-up offered us 2 great
albums and totally unforgettable huge concerts.
Split off rumors and rumors of a
comeback on CD and on stage, everything was heard since their last tour of
10 years ago. Nobody really knows what they are doing right now, but we will
certainly hear about Pink Floyd in the years to come...
