I bought this for my husband, because he enjoys Pink Floyd a lot. He has read it and will read it again. He says that it tells a lot of thinks and goes into depth about things he did not know before. This shocked me with the knowledge my husband had of Pink Floyd before reading, "Which One's Pink?". He is buying 3 more to pass out to some friends of his.
a lot of insight

If you're interested in an intelligent discussion of Pink Floyd's concept albums, this is a great read. One negative about this book is how SMALL the actual book is. Another is that the author got some input from Roger Waters, but evidently not all that much input. Still, it does a good job of pulling from many other sources AND contributing original insights.

This book is very well articulated. It provides deep insite into the ideas and meaning behind Roger Waters and his conceptual albums while with pink floyd. This book is not for a casual reader, as it will go over many peoples heads. This book refrences many philosophers and psychologists in order to fully evaluate the conceptual ideas presented. A great read recommended for the musically informed closet intelectual
The definitive interpretation of Pink Floyd's concept albums
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 20 years ago
By God, this book will blow your mind if your a Pink Floyd fan. From unlocking all the ambiguity in the lyrics and music of "Dark Side of the Moon" to being able to completely comprehend the depth of "Animals" and "The Wall," Pete Rose's coherent writing is so interesting and concise that you will hardly be able to put this book down, except the times when your brain tries to recover from its understanding of the genius of Roger Waters. Also this book certianly engraves Waters' place as one of the top 5 lyricists of all time, if not the greatest simply on the merit of the intense detail and scope involved in his concept albums. Pink Floyd's albums are revolutionary, and Pete Rose's documentation of all of their intriguing fascists is too.
Possibly the most thought through and precise interpretation

This book is defineatly a most thurogh book in that a majority of the sheep out there do not queit understand the works of Pink Floyd. The fact that every intricate detail complements the message is great. The exerpts from psycological literature definatly helps explain Waters and the story much needed to tell. The dipiction of Animals in the book is revolutionary, it made myself think how capitalism drives people to an almost passive way of being screwed by the pigs. You can see that politics, business, and organized religion all run its course in blinding the public. You can still see old imperalism rear its ugly head to this day, it hasn't stopped at the cold war it is still going on, the bureaucracy is still and probably always go on , it is time that all of us wake up and take the initiative to live for humanity, not greed, god, or ultamate power,
