The point I'm trying to make Kev is that most people who bought into Floyd weren't there for the vocals. I think it's the quality of musicianship/arrangements/production/concept/lyrical maturity etc which helped sell copies by the shedload. Millions of buyers can't be "wrong" of course, but all those things are of secondary importance to me personally. Plus I'm a sucker for melodies and I don't recall many from DSOTM.  I wasn't a fan of punk/new wave, so citing that as the then current "competition" earns them no points from me.

I'm not embarrassed to say I'd prefer to listen to Wings or Abba over Pink Floyd (melodies and vocals, remember) even if it's not "cool". There is a place for more proggy stuff on my sound system if I'm in the mood but that's when I'd turn to Jethro Tull. But most of that stuff (ELP, Yes, Caravan, Gentle Giant etc) is nowadays too much like hard work for me: have it but barely ever play it.

Maybe I'm just getting old.

I really dont understand you here Mr M, imo DSPTM is full of great melodies (take Us & Them) and the singing is top notch

We'll just have to agree to disagree  ;)

With you all the way Todd.

It's a great album with some really fine tracks. Ringo's produced some quality stuff over these past few years in my opinion.
