Now is it the thing itself you don't like, or the hype that goes
around it?

Cos with Winnie the Pooh, I completely hate the Disney hype
that made it all over sentimental. There's only 1 range of stuff
which is any damn good and that's the one which makes them
look like a) the original drawings and b) genuine non-mass
produced toys.

Despite that, the books are rather good. But our child isn't
going to get sucked into the Disney branding machine by it.

How much (and which) Floyd have you heard? Because there's
a world of difference between:

* Piper at the Gates of Dawn (and any of the Syd stuff)
* Meddle
* Dark Side
* Wish you were here (used as a sound track by *so* many
* The Wall (which is *way* over hyped but has some fantastic
    stuff on it)
* Momentary Lapse of Reason (post Roger)
