Shall we just close this after the ten regulars vote?

Might as well.

Hopefully we hit mid-20s as we get to Meddle, Dark Side, etc. We should. I mean, even if you're not a Pink Floyd fan, there'll be a lot of people who have at least Dark Side or The Wall.

Dramatic Theme this time. Main Theme is next.

Maybe we can rig up a double-elimination

A bold PF assertion:

Wish You Were Here is PF's best record. The title track is beautiful, SOYCD is mind-blowing, and HAC has a killer riff.

The Wall is PF's second best record.

Dark Side Of The Moon, while a good record, is overrated, and only PF's third best record.

I'm fairly confident that we'll get at least 30 voters for DSOTM. If you don't know those songs, you've been living under a rock. Probably everything from DSOTM to The Wall will poll strongly.

Sounds good to me and I hope it works out that way. I voted Dramatic Theme last round but went for Main Theme this time as I really can't decide which is more bland.

I'll be even more bold. I agree that WYWH is the best album, with Animals a very, very, very close second (it was my #1 for a long time), Piper in third, and Atom Heart Mother fourth.

DSOTM is good, but way over-rated and only an average PF album. The Wall is utter shit, almost entirely dull, and the only worse PF album is The Final Cut. Before anyone asks "but what about AMLOR?", I have one word for you: Sorrow.

The Wall is not shit.

Comfortably Numb? Another Brick In The Wall Part 2? Hey You? Goodbye Blue Sky? Mother? Is There Anybody Out There?

My assertions (based on the four albums I have really listened to so far)

Wish You Were Here is probably their best album. It's almost flawless. WYWH, Shine On 1 and 2 are all 10/10s, with WTTM and HAC both about 8.5s.

Dark Side is still my favourite PF album however. Can't say why really. I'm just in love with it. Third favourite of all time, behind Achtung and JT.

The Wall is a grower... I can't decide yet which is my third favourite Floyd album out of Wall and Meddle.

Not too sure Axver how you can say The Wall is utter shit and almost enitrely dull. Explain yourself

My qualifier, "almost entirely dull", was inserted to exclude the first three songs you mentioned there. Otherwise, it's an album whose actual musical quality is entirely overwhelmed by its concept. It is a long, boring, drawn out cure to insomnia. I have never once successfully listened to the entirety of The Wall, and not due to any lack of effort, I assure you. Just one half of it is more than enough. It's one of the worst albums any band I like has ever released. Hell, I'd rather listen to ATYCLB. At least it's only 50 or so minutes long.

Ouch. I can vouch for it being dull in places, and also for the concept taking over the songs, but I can't go that far.

Oh, to be fair, I also think Run Like Hell isn't bad either.

But songs like The Trial are hideously poor.

The Wall is awesome! It just needs patience and you have to be in a certain mood to appreciate it. Despite Dark Side being overrated, it's still my #1 favorite. Stuff like the beginning of Breathe (how it kicks in after Speak To Me), the lyrics of Time, the awesome Breathe Reprise, the orgasmic Great Gig in the Sky, the entirely beautiful Us & Them, grand finale of Eclipse... nothing beats this. Not even WYWH, Animals, Wall etc. Nothing! IMO.

Many fans would agree with this assertion. For me, the ranking would be as follows:
1. Dark Side
2. WYWH
3. Animals
However, these three albums are so excellent that it is really more of a three-way tie, and I feel somewhat guilty ranking any of them higher than their counterparts.
Main Theme gets my vote for this round.

Yeah I think mine is similar.

1. Dark Side
2. Wish You Were Here
3. Animals
4. The Wall
5. The Division Bell

Depending on my mood, Div Bell goes up as much as #3. I love that frickin album! See, the thing with Animals is... I understand it's really well respected among fans and I love it too. But it is somewhat one-dimensional. The whole thing is only about that one theme.. the hierarchical structure of dogs, pigs and sheep and how it relates to humans. Whereas Dark Side has so many themes to offer... time, money, death, madness, war etc... I think that's why I prefer DSOTM despite the sheer awesomeness of Dogs and Sheep. As songs, I think I prefer both Dogs and Sheep to say, Money, Brain Damage or even Time depending on my mood.
