Review: Christopher George
Guaranteed to be a huge success. The Victoria and Albert Museum host this incredible exhibition documenting one of the worlds most successful band's, Pink Floyd.
Having sold over 200 million records, Pink Floyd are cemented in history, as well as in the emotions of generations past, precent and future.
This year documents 50 years since the release of Pink Floyd's first single. The exhibition puts together the 50 years of Pink Floyd's history, being part of London's counter culture. Each album from the band has its own section its and own documentation of the times.
Encompassing more than just Pink Floyd, this exhibition expresses a language within the life of generations, and the battles they suffer. This is expressed via emotional audio and visuals, taking you on a vast visceral journey.
Much of Pink FLoyd's music since the album Dark Side Of The Moon, has been extremely critical of capitalism, and the dictates of class ridden, conservative society.
An irony that grew louder with the bands progress, and is extremely relevant today.
Pink Floyd - Money, death, violence and murder.
Do you ever think your going mad?
