re: Pink Floyd’s Time solo
Obscured By Clouds is so underrated, I just love that era right before they just went "big" with their production

Beautiful ballads and cool, jagged rock and roll tunes with a just hint of psychedelia

It's always listenable

re: Pink Floyd’s Time solo
Back when "Time" was made they actually had a bunch of alarm clocks set up to go off. Not as easy to do things back then. I know. We did a lot of music videos, ect. If you wanted to do some animation, you actually set up the shot, then slowly moved the objects and spliced it all together.

100% agree. It doesn't get a lot of respect because it was rushed and it wasn't very polished, but it is a really solid group of songs.

The Doom Side of the Moon version of that song is so wonderful as well.

I recently got a homepod, and I was listening to Pink Floyd one day. Well, this song started playing and when my son heard the opening with the clocks, he walked up to the speaker and said "Hey Siri, stop"

I said "why did you stop it"

And he said "because the alarm went off."

I had to explain to him that was the song, and not an alarm.

Childhood’s End has always been one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs.

I posted this in another Floyd thread just the other day - I think it was Alan Parsons who did that on his own, prior to the band showing up (Alan Parsons engineered DSOM) to record the album. They were working on Time and Parsons said, "Guys - I just did this before we started", played it for them and David said, "That's great. Put it on there."

But, yeah, imagine the precision required to mic up a clock shop and get a bunch of clocks synchronized to the second so the alarms all go off at the same time.

He recorded them separately then overdubbed them. Still cool though and not particularly easy at the time.

Yeah it is - in hindsight, even more Floyd (and Parsons) than synching them.

Synching them would have been more something that Hipgnosis would have done.
