I wouldn't rule out any of the top four teams.

Piper is a good album, but it's totally unlike any of the classic Floyd you've already been listening to, and some people don't care for it. It's more psychedelic than anything else.

This is because the focus is around original member Syd Barrett instead.

He sent little opinion things with each track, so we'll see.

He speaketh the truth twice. I'd wait to listen to this one, though.

Apparently my Meddle suggestions are off?

No, Meddle is a near-classic in my eyes. Seamus is a throwaway, and San Tropez isn't much but the other four tracks should be included whenever there is a discussion on the best of Floyd. Absolutely essential.

Reading these threads has encouraged to make a playlist where EVERY SINGLE SONG relates to the Smiths in some way for the next DI

That was a bit too much Morrissey for me, but the rest of your playlist was so good that you were able to hold onto my vote.

At least for that round.

It's kind of remarkable hearing these tracks with really no prior knowledge or hearing of them. All PF talk before this was a total wash due to my lack of knowledge. It's really easy to form my opinions without much of anyone else's involved.

And it will actually be quite refreshing to hear someone's thoughts on it who hasn't had any knowledge of them previously.

You won't be influenced by the tons and tons of words already written about them.

I honestly didn't get too much out of the title track of WYWH, to be honest. I mean, it's pretty good, but not nearly one of their best, IMO.

Screwtape will be glad to hear that.

It's not your conventional song, despite its popularity. Waters had no intention of it being a song. The lyrics come from a poem he wrote. If my memory is correct, one day Gilmour read it, thought they would make great lyrics, and composed the music to it.

Quite the backwards way of creating a song, but it works. And hearing the song on the radio, and then playing along with it, was used to great effect...

My favorite track of each of the three:

DSOTM: Time (2nd: Us and Them)
WYWH: Shine On You Crazy Diamond I-V (2nd: VI-IX)
Animals: Pigs (Three Different Kinds) (2nd: Sheep/Dogs tied)

I would love you forever. We should make a conscious effort to make certain posters explode.

I forgot about Seamus for whatever reason, but still enjoy San Tropez. Yeah, the other four are fucking astounding.
