That song speaks to me on so many levels.. Glad that someone hold it in high regard too.

(in fact I agree to the whole post, but unfortunately for you, Neg, that will not add any "cool points" in the eyes of the “good taste monopolists” of this board )

Thin Ice is a masterpiece, surely one of the most underrated Floyd tunes overall.

You need to listen to The Division Bell more carefully.

The comparison of the two albums are really meaningless. Each person has a sense of their own.

What a profound statement.

Why would I listen to Division Bell again, when I can listen to Frances the Mute or Fear of a Blank Planet?

I tend to love double albums, even if filler is to be expected, I'm a sucker for albums that aim high and go crazy. If I actually had a problem with self indulgence I sure as fuck wouldn't be a prog fan. Compact single albums are great and all, but if some bands trimmed a double album down to a single album some of my favorite songs from those albums might have been lost in the process.

And I don't really consider filler that big of an offender anyway, as long as it's not bad. I think filler can even make an album better because like a scene in a movie or a chapter in a book or a level in a video game where not much happens, it can serve as a breather between the more epic stuff and without it the work may seem too fast paced. Just my opinion.

The better double albums have the good sense to spread the filler around, to serve that very purpose. Except Physical Graffiti which crammed all of it's filler into side 4, though like I said before, I like to think of side 3 as the real conclusion to that album, and side 4 as the drunken after party.

But rating Division Bell as shit-tier is really stupid.

I agree with all that. My problem with double albums I think mostly is the length, it's difficult for me to listen to the same artist for 2 hours straight with full concentration, which any new album demands. Hence, my favorite album length is usually from 30-50 mins. Longer than that becomes a chore to listen to in its entirety. Of course, I can break down double album listens into 2, which is actually what I do.

I tend to agree. Its pretty rare that any seventy minute album is able to keep me focused throughout. Fourty or fourty-five minutes is my ideal length typically.

I didn't. Brown is the lowest level. I rated DB as sea green, which is one level above sh!t

One, oil-rig sized level. The Division Bell is great. Certainly better than The Wall. Cluster One, Marooned, Coming Back to Life and High Hopes are amongst Pink Floyd's very best songs.

The truth. Not sure about it being better than the wall, but it's up there, and High Hopes is THE best song Floyds done under 10 minutes long
