While I enjoy the odd Pink Floyd tune, I just can't see them as a 'rock band'. They're in leagues of their own. Of course, I could never listen to Queen while stoned off my ass, but Pink Floyd always seems to suit the mood.

No, Lester, you are wrong... You MUST be stoned to appreciate fully Pink Floyd's music!!!

Yeah, they are too hard to compare, but one thing that's clear is that Pink Floyd's albums were mixed and produced so much better than Queen's. I remember someone brought this issue up before and it was a good point. Queen Queen and Dark Side of the Moon were both released in 1973, but Dark Side sounds as if it was released in the last 10 years while Queen sounds as if it was recorded in the '50s through a telephone reciever.
In all fairness tho I have the hollywood versions of the Queen albums which I've heard are very badly mixed. I have a few Floyd albums most of which were released before Queen's early albums and the Floyd's still sound much much better. Is there any reason why there is such a vast difference in quality?

I love Pink Floyd, but Queen is #1 for me.

I like Pink Floyd more


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I'm not really warranted to say anything because I don't actively listen to Pink Floyd but I think they are tripe.

As much as i enjoy (some) Pink Floyd, the fact that I am on a Queen board now as opposed to a Floyd one should make my preference clear.

Speaking of Pink Floyd, has anybody heard Wyclef Jean's cover of Wish You Were Here? I was just listening to a clip of it, and it's...interesting.

Yes, there is. Two words: Alan Parsons.

To be fair, Floyd had been in the business since 1966, while Queen were quite unexperienced.

Well, Pink Floyd are a great band with some great albums: Atom Heart Mother, Dark Side Of The Moon or The Wall, but... my love goes entirely to Queen. Besides that, I really can't see Pink Floyd "rocking", their music is like a cold river, it flows rather than it rocks :)... Anyway, Queen are the best band ever on earth...

Btw, I don't know why Wyclef Jean works so hard to compromise all the great songs in the world?! Couldn't he just have sticked to what he did to AOBTD, why does he have to destroy Wish You Were Here too?!


I LOVE QUEEN!

Floyd are o.k, but Queen is Queen. Better than anybody else. The whole thing together, the songs, the albums, the members, their live playing, really can't be beat.

I agree with most people on this board. I love Pink Floyd, but I would never come away from a PF concert saying "they rocked!". Their music does flow. Being buzzed out of your mind is the best way to listen to Floyd!! But Queen always has, and always will be, THE best rock band ever, in my opinion. They jam their collective butts off!!

First Queen, than Yes, then Muse, than lots of other bands, and then Pink Floyd, I think


I think the millionaire waltz is the most Queen gay song.
