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.
As i'm not an english native speaker, the inane or bad lyrics don't hit me that hard on the face. So i'm kinda lucky in that regard that i can focus on the sound first. I sometimes think that if english was my native language, i would not like a lot of the things i do like now.

I've been listening to a lot of PF lately and was curious to know what you guys thought of those records.

I used to swear by Delicate Sound Of Thunder but that first disc of primarily Momentary songs was tough for me to get through a couple weeks ago

The Division Bell never did anything for me when I gave that another try fairly recently. Just as boring as before.

A Saucerful of Secrets (the song) should be appreciated more. The finishing coda is beautiful. It was the one of the first signs of great things to come, in terms of long, epic soundscapes they were about to create.

True.
Btw, I was listening to Echoes and i must say that guitar arpeggio riff on the last 3 mins is one of the greatest pieces of music ever played in the history of the universe.

Is that the bit that starts about 18:30? If so I totally agree. A justified exaggeration.

Yea, about 18:13 to be more precise and it goes till 18:43. 30 seconds of something i can't even begin to describe. It's like music for Gods making love or something like that.

It is indeed some of the greatest pieces of music ever recorded. Certainly reason no.1 why I count Echoes to be my favourite Floyd song.

The David Gilmour versions on Remember That Night DVD and on the Live at Gdansk album feature Richard Wright and are absolutely sublime as well.

Bookmarked.

So sad that Rick Wright passed away. I reckon we were about six months to a year away from some reunion shows.

The emotional weight he lent to songs like Time and Echoes is very underrated.

Agreed. The synth work on Shine On is just as moving.

Have you heard his solo album Broken China by any chance? It is definitely worth a listen.

Rick is looking a lot like George Martin in that clip.
