my playlist called "PT favorites" contains:

lazarus
collapse the light into the earth
drown with me

admittedly this is a brief list because i have only briefly listened to PT. I'm excited for some quality music-listening time this summer.

It's quite impossible for me to come up with a top five, because there are so many songs that can qualify.

However, I consider Shine On You Crazy Diamond the definitive Pink Floyd song and their crowning achievement.

Three excellent songs from latter day PT right there. If you haven't heard Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, make that your next choice.

Comfortably Numb has quite possibly the best guitar solo of all time.

Diemen, you're a patient man to still be in FYM.

I've been happily divorced for a month.

I know Axver was looking into sending some people PT albums, but here's a blog where you can get all of them if you wish (I'm assuming the links work - note that the password is bunalti.com).

http://bigrock666.blogspot.com/2008/...pine-tree.html

Now this discography lists everything, included compilations, singles, EPs, early demos, etc. For now, if you're new to PT, stick to the regular albums, which are:

On The Sunday Of Life
Up The Downstair
The Sky Moves Sideways
Signify

Stupid Dream
Lightbulb Sun
Recordings

In Absentia
Deadwing
Fear Of A Blank Planet

I've separated them into three groups, as PT have gone through three phases in their career.

The first group is more ambient and experimental, and at times sounds like Pink Floyd (see The Sky Moves Sideways).

The second group is probably their most accessible, as they streamlined their songs for a more rock sound.

The third group goes a bit further, incorporating progressive metal into their music.

So choose the group that you think you'd find most interesting first.

My pick for the first group would be The Sky Moves Sideways, for the second it's Stupid Dream, and for the third, well, take your pick. Any one of them would work.
