I was never a Pink Floyd fan. Too far out for me......or so I thought.
Then someone played the album, "Wish you were here" and I couldn't get it out of my mind.
Since then, I've become a David Gilmore fan and now he's a bit older, but hasn't lost a step in his guitar playing.
IMO, the greatest guitar solo of all time is the last two minutes of "Comfortably Numb" I can't stop listening.
So, now, I have the DVD, the MP-3, and it's the ringtone on my phone. WOW!

"Comfortably Numb" is definitely one of the best songs of all time, in my humble opinion. The lyrics express such a great scene of that pseudo-coping stage, where we really haven't adapted to something in a healthy way, but have found a place where we can remove ourselves from the despair, pain, sorrow, and madness.

The mingling of word to music is masterful; for me music is truly special in it's capacity to express emotion and complex concepts non-verbally. The pairing of deeply personal, subjective lyrics that also work on an objective, universal level has always struck me on every listening. The blending of the spacious guitar and down-beat of the song's build-up, with the blissful strings and melody is such a bittersweet expression for me. As the song continues, the angsty, yearning guitar really drives home the "I'm shutting off, not dealing: I want more" aspects of the song that I perceive.

The specifics of the band's being pushed to perform and produce, are essentially universal for me well as well. Any person that has dealt with depression has probably dealt with the dual problem of the guilt and reluctance associated with burdening others with one's own sufferings. This can be such a downward-spiral in a depressive spell as the guilt of acting how one wouldn't like can further feelings of self-loathing and internal criticism. The doctor, and the line "this will keep you going for the show," can apply to anyone's life, especially in the case of using alcohol or other substances to numb oneself to suffering.

Basically, a fantastic expression of the human condition that I have been able to appreciate in so many different ways and modes throughout my life since first discovering Pink Floyd in my teens.

Any lover of music should be able to appreciate the emotional evocation that this song, and "The Wall" in general, managed to accomplish.

Much love, and listen on!

Another classis by the British Band from the 20th century. Rmastered for 21st tech; because I have yet to find vinyl that fits in my iPod. Enjoy...

Couldn't have a digital collection without this remarkable album...I grew up with these sounds and they give me a real sense of history to listen to them.

Perfect. It is the moving, building background that makes this classic so dreamily satidfying, and the 2011 Remaster is as good as Virgin Vinyl.

I love this band. I've seen them in concert four times and they just get better and better as the years pass. This version of the song is probably the best I've heard. David Gilmore has to be one of the finest guitar players in the world.
