After three years of heavy touring, Roger Waters is finally wrapping up his The Wall Live tour this Saturday night in Paris. It's one of the biggest tours in rock history, and Waters is going to walk away from the endeavor with a pretty nice payday.  

The Dark Side of Pink Floyd: Photos From Their Last Days and Bittersweet Reunions

Which leads to this week's question: What is Pink Floyd's single greatest album? Don't feel confined to the big ones like Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon. Early work like Atom Heart Mother and Meddle are great, and the post-Waters albums A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell do have their nice moments. Vote for whatever album you want, but please only vote once and only for a single album.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
