Favorite Album time... my Floydians!

Pick your favorite from Piper to Div Bell.

At the risk of sounding very boring, my favorite is Dark Side Of The Moon hands down. Yes... I have listened to almost every single studio album of theirs and yet, none compare to the way DSOTM weaves together the concepts of time, money, war, madness, life and death.

Gotta choose The Wall ...

Hey You, Run Like Hell, Comfortably Numb and Another Brick In The Wall are timeless masterpieces from Pink Floyd ...
I'd also have to compliment Vera and Bring The Boys Back Home ...
Such GREAT music ... absolute CLASSIC album indeed !!

sorry, I voted for DSOTM even though I am not a Floydian and am probably screwing up your statistics

Yoiks. This is like asking someone to pick their favorite child.

I'm actually gonna go way out into left field with this one. I won't go with a 1973-1979 title as I imagine just about everyone else will do. My favorite period is the post-Syd period...so now I have to decide between Meddle, Saucerful, More, and Ummagumma. And I can't so we will have to do this scientifically.

Saucerful's Pro's: The Saucerful suite, Jugband Blues, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, and Let There Be More Light.
Saucerful's Con's: Corporal Clegg, See Saw

More's Pro's: Cymbaline , Cirrus Minor, The Nile Song, Ibiza Bar, Green is the Colour
More's Con's: A Spanish Piece, all those damn instrumentals

Ummagumma's Pro's: The Narrow Way, Grantchester Meadows, Careful With That Axe Eugene (live)
Ummagumma's Con's: Several Species..., Sysyphus

Meddle's Pro's: Echoes, One of These Days, A Pillow of Winds, San Tropez, Fearless
Meddle's Con's: Seamus

Looks like Meddle it is. Although More pulls up a VERY close second.

Ah... I just love these hardcore fan posts!

Great choice, Dave C! Meddle is gorgeous. I like that era too. Listening to Atom Heart Mother right now.

But you don't like Wright's See Saw???

Start to finish, there is nothing more complete than the Wall. A top 5 album of all time for me.

I'm going to have to say DSOTM for me. When I was in high school I listened to that album every single night when I was going to sleep. It's got sentimental value. And it's just outstanding.

It's not that I don't like the song itself, but that constant back and forth thing on the stereo...that makes me want to rip the speakers out.

Meddle. It's the album it's O.K. to like more than DSotM.

Seriously though, the band's on fire through the whole thing.

The Wall for me. Although Wish You Were Here comes very close.
