Only if we work at it, it would seem. As arguably the highest of primates, it's amazing how much more primitive than our evolutionary family members we can actually be.

Tears every time. I can't ever say what my favorite song is, but this one makes every cell in my body pay attention. 

Funny story, one time I didn't realize I'd left my stereo with remote speakers outside on, and volume fairly high. And connected to the computer that automatically starts RP at 5 in the morning. At about 5:15 I woke up to someone's radio blasting outside and thought 'well at least they have taste'. When I realized it was me and raced out to turn it off, I couldn't. What if someone else was enjoying it? So I stood there with bathrobe on and faded it out on the closing heartbeat. 

Anyway, there are a few 10's in my list. This is 10+.

I think hearing this sequence played in full may have been the thing that made me sit up and notice RP in the first place while I was roaming through internet radio stations. 12 years on and I'm still listening and loving (almost) every minute, and none of it more than still getting those four tracks together. Cheers!

I half suspect that DSOTM was something of a musical dark comedy, or a tone poem for humorous cynics.  Nonetheless, it's a 20. Too much is not enough.

Same here....although a few years later...and presumably a MUCH louder and CLEANER sounding car stereo....I actually still get goose bumps when I hear Any Colour You Like, which I know as Track 7, but that damn remastered CD added a track in the intro...so it's 8 on the newer discs.  Seriously, I did not realize how awesome a great stereo was until I heard this CD and OMFG.  Time BUMPS like crazy, and again, I just loved the dynamic range, stereo separation and clear highs on Any Colour You Like. 

Kudos to BillG for the combo tracks of DSOTM.  It's really amazing to think how UNDERPLAYED this album is in my life and I've heard it at least 500 times if not more.  I think I could listen to it in full weekly if not daily.  This is the peak, the benchmark which ALL OTHER bands had to look up to and say "well shit I don't think we're that good but let's try it anyways"

Also...no other album have I purchased more times than this one.  Twice on LP, once on cassette, no 8track cuz it was dead by my time, at least 3 CDs and I even bought it in digital format. 

LONG LIVE RP and PF!!  RIP Syd and Richard.  PEACE

Oh...when I get off work in 15 minutes I'll be enjoying some Amnesia Haze {#Cowboy}

Noticed I'd rated this a solid 9. I was gravely mistaken. After lucking into free tickets to see Roger Waters and experiencing this live (and without *cough* anything to enhance the sensory experience at that, save for a $7 arena beer), it's most certainly bumped to a 10+. Even as programmed and exacting musically as the show has to be to coordinate the music with the multimedia, it borders on a religious experience. 

Again, if the tour gets through to your neck of the woods and you're remotely curious and have the coin for tickets, I would strongly, strongly urge you to go.

Or maybe I'm just becoming an old sap. Either way, it was a hell of a show.

Just beyond words.  A 12 from this old radio jock.  Too bad I was in the media before PF got airplay.  And when they did, I was so involved with life I missed most of their works.  Thank you RP for playing them,...and despite what some naysayers espouse, gimme' MORE!

PF and I have aged.  These days it's not that I want to hear "More Floyd" (which used to get yelled into the request line at the little rural FM station I worked at in a cow town).  No, But maybe I still need to hear some PF.  Thanks RP.

This perfectly illustrates why Radio Paradise is SUCH a good station!

Most stations would just try to play ONE of these tracks which of course, is impossible to do without cutting it off and completely ruining it - so what the hell - stick the 4 tracks together and play all of them so people can hear them the way the band intended? 

Who cares that it equates to about 17 minutes of airplay time when it's 17 minutes of utter UTTER brilliance from the best album ever.

Completely sublime and always makes my day when I hear it - top work Radio Paradise :)
