Hey Zootlesque ...
Is there going to be a "time limit" on the poll ??
It would be interesting to see which Pink Floyd album becomes the "overall" winner !!

If this poll were to end in the next half-hour...we'd have some messed up results like:

The Wall > Dark Side

Meddle > Wish You Were Here

And no album pre-Meddle has gotten a vote yet.

Incidently, I saw a floyd tribute last week. 'Pink Fraud' - Fantastic! They played the entire WYWH album and also, all 23 mins + of 'Atom Heart Mother'!!!

Gotta go with Momentary Lapse of Reason, a return to the pre Wall Floyd. The opening Signs of Life into Learning to Fly is just terrific, and some of the second side instrumentals are gems (Yet Another Movie and Terminal Frost).

Nice to see Meddle getting some love, Echoes is brilliant. WYWH was my runner-up. And though it will likely not fetch much support, Obscured is a fun little album with a couple great tunes (Gilmour's Childhood's End and Waters' Free Four).

I didn't set any time limit for this poll cos:

a. I wasn't sure about the time span it would take to get some decent looking results. It all depends on the popularity of a Floyd poll in a U2 site.

b. A person can only vote once anyway and so it would just keep accumulating the responses. The more the merrier.

I hope we eventually see a very varied results chart. After all many of those albums are really good. My favorites overall are Piper, Saucerful, Relics, Meddle, Dark Side, WYWH, Animals, The Wall and Div Bell. The rest of 'em I like in parts.

Are you serious? Sounds more like a spoof band to me.

The Wall for me.

Though I know that no real "Floydians" feel this way (and would/will probably soil themselves upon reading this)....I guess I've just always thought that Dark Side of the Moon sounds a bit dated......

Interesting. I think it is exactly the opposite. DSOTM is one of those rare albums that still sounds fresh, like it was just recorded. Alan Parsons did an amazing job on that.

I think a lot of it depends on which era you're a fan of...

SYD ERA
Arnold Layne, See Emily Play & all the other singles
Piper

(POST SYD) GILMOUR ERA
saucerful
more

AVANT GARDE/EXPERIMENTAL ERA
ummagumma
atom heart mother

CLASSIC ERA (Gilmour and Waters in perfect harmony)
meddle
obscured by clouds
dark side
wish you were here

WATERS ERA
animals
the wall
final cut

POST WATERS ERA
a momentary lapse of reason
the division bell

Personally, I love both Gilmour (for the airy dreamy soundscapes) and Waters (for the political, cynical, serious and overall better lyrics) and so like the Classic Era the best.

I'm the only Floydian that truly matters.

I totally agree with what you're saying here ...
but, I have a feeling that "Dark Side Of The Moon" or "The Wall" will end up on top of this poll ...
no matter how long it's out here ...
as these are the overall Pink Floyd classics ...
