Sorry, man, but I just can't agree with you if that list is signifying that Atom Heart Mother is superior to the Shine On suite.

Regarding the next step, I have been and continue to be a stalwart advocate for More. It's erratic for sure, but there are some gems scattered throughout, especially Cirrus Minor, which remains one of my top Floyd tracks, The Nile Song, and Cymbaline. In short, it's a great representation of everything that they could do.

Cymbaline is one of my favorite songs ever. The production and overall atmosphere is suffocating, but its chorus is strangely powerful and uplifting.

More is the Passengers of Pink Floyd, only more drab and boring. Cymbaline would be their Your Blue Room.

As far as I am concerned, Meddle is in the big five, not Obscured by Clouds.

Actually, Meddle is by far and away my favourite Floyd album.

Sorry, what i meant was: not counting the big 5 albums, Obscured is my fave.
Sometimes it's hard to express when one is not an english native speaker.

Obscured by Clouds is one of my favorite fall records, so I played it tonight. Really fond of Stay, forgot how beautiful that song is.

I love Pink Floyd, and may or may not have read through this entire thread once in the past. Oops.

My favorite album is Wish You Were Here and favorite song is Us And Them.

What is the consensus around here about AMLOR and Division Bell?

AMLOR was decent, but it seemed more like a David Gilmour solo album that was trying to sound like a Pink Floyd album.


DB seemed more in the spirit of Pink Floyd and definitely more of a band effort. I especially enjoyed Lost For Words and High Hopes. It's a shame that David chose not to record a follow up Pink Floyd studio album.

My thoughts as well. But i also love the Pulse versions of High Hopes and the other "new" songs (like Sorrow) more than the studio versions.

The Division Bell has High Hopes, which is one of my favourite songs in general, so that one gets a pass purely because of that song. It's much better than A Momentary Lapse of Reason and it has its other moments (Coming Back to Life has a fantastic Gilmour guitar solo). It also helps that Richard Wright finally plays an active role again.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason is wrapped in 80s cheese. Learning To Fly, Sorrow and On the Turning Away are good songs. The rest I can live without. Probably the weakest of them all.

I have a profound soft spot for Momentary Lapse of Reason. I listened to it almost non-stop when I was 14 or 15. But I can certainly now understand that it underwhelms as a record. The lyrics in particular are a weak spot, and, as djerdap said, it has not aged well. Division Bell is quite a step up, but I don't feel as strongly about it as I once did, either. Marooned, Coming Back to Life, and High Hopes are all great songs, though. You can probably toss A Great Day for Freedom in there as well.

My problem with AMLOR is the dated 80's production that i wasn't very fond of even in the 80's. That bombastic metalic sound... And i also think the instrumental interludes sound like a Kitaro record. But Learning to fly, Turning away and Sorrow are top notch songs. I think i prefer the Pulse versions of Sorrow and Learning to fly because they lack that bombastic Phil Collins kind of production. Also, High hopes is an all-time classic in my book.
