** That could probably be chalked up to the time limitations of LPs.

** ''Delicate Sound of Thunder'' and ''PULSE'' both are from the Gilmour-led era. A lot of guitar solos were much longer than in the original record, at that time.

* In the Nineties, some unidentified but likely professional DJ put out their own so-called 'trance remixes' of Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, Obscured By Clouds, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and The Division Bell. Awful lot of effort - but who the hell was it??
** The general consensus from fans and the music industry alike is that they were created by the Orb; their style is unmistakable, and the music contains loads of samples from both the Orb and its predecessor, the KLF. However, the Orb have never confirmed nor denied this.
** A few more 'trance remixes' CD's, different in style and clearly amateur, covering "More", "The Final Cut", "Piper At The Gates of Dawn" and selected tracks from "A Saucerful of Secrets," were made by a teenage fan named Alex Wroten. However, none of these are connected to the mystery batch.

* "Only stoners listen to PinkFloyd." I hate that attitude with the passion of a million suns. The worst drug this troper has ever abused is alcohol. He doesn't even smoke pot. Yet, I always hear Pink Floyd described as music that is only popular with drug addicts. When asked why this attitude exists, he once heard an answer of "Well, they did a lot of drugs." That was a wall banger to be sure and this troper quickly pointed out that 90% of people involved with the music industry (not just rock) did drugs to various degrees.
** This troper has never abused a single drug in his life. This theory is obviously {{Jossed}}.
** My over-50 (in the 1980s) mother found "Shine On Crazy Diamond" quite pleasant.
** WordOfGod says they really didn't do a lot of drugs. If you ask me, their music is better than drugs >.> . Sitting down and listening to one of their albums and really letting your mind wander is a good way to help the creative process, not to mention quite relaxing!
*** "They really didn't do a lot of drugs." Yeah, after seeing [[CreatorBreakdown what happened to Syd]], I'd expect they wouldn't!
**** Syd was the only one of them who did. Well, apart from Wright's cocaine habit in the eighties.
** This is because of Syd Barret, ex-frontman of the band, who wrote most of the songs of their debut album, and did a lot of drugs. Pink Floyd went to a completely musical direction later on their career, which wasn't influenced by drugs.
** I agree with you on the most part and would entirely however i realised about a year ago that i only really got into Pink Floyd after taking acid.

* What's the deal with the last solo on "Comfortably Numb" fading out just as it gets really fantastic? As heard on ''Delicate Sound of Thunder'' and ''PULSE'', there's ''much'' more of that solo to go.

** "...only popular with drug addicts." Are you fucking retarded or do you just swallow every lie your 5th-grade DARE programme threw at you? Cannabis is not addictive and using the term "drug addicts" to reference recreational cannabis users ("stoners") is incredibly insulting. Alcohol is far more dangerous, as well as actually being addictive, so your sanctimonious "HERP DERP I onlee drink booze N i lyk Pink Floyd so i haet be-N loompd N w/ stonners wen ppl sy Pink Floyd is stonre musics" makes me hate you with the passion of a million suns. Jesus titty-fucking Christ, I'm gonna have to swallow a bottle of Xanax after reading this asinine post of yours.
