David Gilmour Is A Better Artist Than Roger Waters
It is about David Gilmour and Roger Waters. These two great minds are current members of the world renowed rock band known as "Pink Floyd".
Let the games begin.
I, The Phantom, am pleased to be debating my opponent, The Great Inferno, on this profound, important, magnituedeous, crucial, grave, fundamental, consequential, remarkable, prodigious, critical, decisive, monumental, pivotal, influential, outstanding and wandereous topic.
(First!) Let us get titles out of the way. I will hereby be called The Pyrotechnic Phantom. My esteemed opponent will be as usual, The Great Inferno.
I will allow The Great Inferno to go first!
most epic of all artists that this world has ever seen. While Waters has a better writing format for songs, he does not give you that energy that is seen in Gilmours solo efforts which have been critically acclaimed.
His accolades are top notch, and his spirit soars like an Eagle especially on his album On An Island and his stunning,
and mesmorizing debut which some said was ahead if its time. See this link. http://www.davidgilmour.com...
Okay, a bunch of this will be C/P'd from other forum arguments
Many people seem to share the view that Gilmour was pink floyds
Overall Waters contributed to to the albums
1. "The wall"
Also common fact.
3. "Wish You Were Here"
These are almost positively the three most popular PF albums and
Waters also ventured much more than Gilmour into other genre's. He
inferno forfeited this round.
Poor show old chap.
phantom forfeited this round.
He has stood the test of time, and his solo projects are incredible. Mihalis is one of his signature tunes, as well as
No Way Out Of Here. He had another release a few years ago titled, "On An Island". This was my tribute to my dear
and sweet Rogue. * Remember that song. Yes, I know that some of you do. It gave you a very eloquent view of this Man's conscious mind as he has a whimsical, colorful, and melodious track which is not only complex, but state of the art. He is never cheap, or uninspiring. He is still hungry for great songs, and it shows as he is now the sole producer an writer of his pieces. David Gilmour is the best and greates member of Pink Floyd. Period.
"David Gimour gave us a Grammy winning album called the "Division Bell"."
Yes Division Bell was mainly driven by Gilmour. But wait I already have SIX of the biggest Pink Floyd albums created by Waters. You only have One. Not much going for you there pal.
"It is a classic and Pink Floyds stunning 1990's debut without yet again, Roger Waters"
1990's yes, when Pink Floyd were way past their time.(70's) The Division Bell was a good album but it was nothing new.
"This proved that Gilmours song writing ability is every bit as great, if not better, than Waters himself."
Gilmour can write good albums. That's granted. But Waters has written WAY more albums. Something my opponent hasn't even adressed.
"He has had a much better solo career "
What? Where is the proof of this? This is just based off opinion. I've shown that Waters went as far out of his style to create a CLASSICAL album. This is not subjective opinion like my opponents claims. It is very rare for a rock musicion to write a classical album.
"Waters basically was sour about the production choices and direction that the band was going in."
"He is uninspired, dismal, depressive, delusional."
For a Pink Floyd fan, I'm surprised how little respect my opponent has for him. However his assertions are baseless. He does not support it whatsoever.
"His creativity is not as thorough and vast as Gilmour."
Gobsmacked. If Waters creativty is not as "thorough and vast" as Gilmours why did he create so so many more of Pink Floyds music including all of their top three albums as well as creating a classical album whereas Gilmour sticks solely to rock?
"His voice was also dubbed by another English artist on the song Have A Cigar."
And Gilmours wasn't chosen either. Maybe because neither Waters or Gilmour had as fiiting a voice as Roy Harper for that particular song, but my opponent acts like Waters can't sing when the fact is he sings many times such as in The Wall where his voice is heard on actually allot of songs such as "Mother" and "One of my turns".
"Again. Roger Waters is the lead singer and good writer."
Ok, now my opponent is claiming Waters is the lead singer. It does not appear to be a typo so I gladly accept my opponents statement though I'm not sure why he would make it.
Well that's sweet that you attributtid "On an Island" to your "dear and sweet" Rogue, but I'm not quite exactly sure how that is relevant.....
Why you should vote con:
My opponent ignores the vast majority of my arguments as well as droping a whole lot of his own,
I have proven that Waters wrote the vast majority of Pink Floyds music including their three most populer albums, "Dark Side of the Moon," "The Wall", and "Wish You Were Here". This alone proves my point I think.
My opponent only uses his subjective opinion to support his claims that David Gilmour had a better solo career where-as I have shown that Waters was way more experimental and went as far as creating a classical album.
