Your head canon means as much as any of these lists, which is why, though I had Parade ranked low relative to an amorphous consensus, I am stoked that you’re digging it.
It’s cool. I can barely write.
I was going for monkeyridinghorse’s interpretation. That was an ambiguous line; sorry for the confusion. The man was phenomenal.
It means that, in regards to typing “sexiest,” I crapped the bed.
Oof. Yeah, I do. No, it didn’t. Yes, I have. Dozens of times. And thanks for the reminder, btw, my screen is gross.
In this scenario, Pink Floyd didn’t release five albums and Animals is at 6.
I’ll say it here: I think every LP they’ve released is worth owning, and I don’t normally feel that way about deep-catalog bands. I’ve got the same bias as you: that mid-’90s lineup could do so much damage. As a drummer, Drozd has an incredible feel, and Jones gave the band so many tone options. I’m a sucker for the twangy stuff, too. Yoshimi was a letdown for me after Bulletin (which, if I remember correctly, I bought at Borders. Ouch), but I’ve grown to love the moodier stuff on it. Believe me, I know putting it that low looks off. It’s the fave Lips album for a lot of my friends.
May we not be self-aware, I ask you?
1. Dark Side of the Moon
2. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
3. Wish You Were Here
4. A Saucerful of Secrets
In this scenario, The Wall is Yoshimi.
I should’ve typed “Ivins,” screwed up. Good catch.
