In my Top 10, U2, Floyd and The Beatles repeat. If we didn't have the 3 albums only rule, there might have been more.

My top 10 has 7 different artists
My top 20 has 14 different artists

Why not? These are my favourite albums and some artists are absolutely amazing to me


And Animals > Dark Side; but both made my top 20

2 Floyd and Beatles albums made my 10, along with 1 Stones, Radiohead, U2, Dylan, Zeppelin, and Springsteen album each.

There's a reason why Dark Side was their biggest commercial hit.

Well Money and Time, to me, are not very interesting songs. Brain Damage / Eclipse is very cool, but it doesn't get me going. Us and Them is probably my favorite Floyd song, though I don't know that it's a great place to start.

As for Wish You Were Here, I agree with everything ElMel said above. Though I apparently like Have a Cigar more than he does.

Re: Meddle - I don't know what's inaccesible about Pillow of Winds, Fearless and One of those Days - they're all brilliant and easy to get into. They don't drone on for minutes and minutes. And granted, Echoes is long, but it's interesting at the least. And the payoffs are worth it - I love that round and round guitar solo that happens right before the (I think it's the) 3rd verse. That moves me everytime.

I don't have any Pink Floyd albums in my top 500
they do absolutely nothing for me

same with the Beatles really

R.E.M. and U2 twice in top 50
Frank Zappa and Will Oldham 3 times

to my own surprise I have Sting in my top 50

Me too, on both counts.

I've always been a Sting fan - I don't care how pretentious he comes across, I usually like his music quite a bit. I think The Soul Cages is his best album, and it's somewhere in my top 50.

Soul Cages for me too
after listening to it again I actually pondered whether it deserved a higher rating

Wow!

As for Sting, I was bouncing around on whether to include Dream of the Blue Turtles but... I dunno, probably not. The Police's Synchronicity will show up though, despite the god awful Mother.

Oh and....


I am listening to ATYCLB right now and... I find myself enjoying it so much that... I'm almost considering including it in place of Pop as the 3rd U2 album. Shh! Don't tell the EYKIW folk.
