I realise Pink Floyd can't exactly be considered metal, but we're all pretty open minded guys... Any fans?
This band probably always has been and always will be my favourite band, and David Gilmour my favourite guitarist.
Firstly, this is, IMO, the greatest guitar solo (that I've heard, at least). A real "hair on the back of your neck" moment.

Another great song - after the likes of Wish You Were Here, it might well be the most emotional one they've ever done.

I think Roger Waters' unique voice is really showcased in this one, at around 4:28. I know he's not the best technical singer ever, but the way he really reaches for those "high" notes sounds incredibly emotional to me.

And lyrically... Wow... Check out the lyrics to Echoes... .

All in all, a brilliant band. Way before my time, but I don't think I'll ever fall out of love with these guys...
From start to finish, a fucking great band. They definitely had their height with Dark Side, Animals, WYWH, and Meddle, but nearly everything they've done has been memorable and listenable, IMO.
