Who came up with the titles for this album?!?!


Also, is Several Species really the best song on Ummagumma? Really? It's woeful.

I'm goin for that as it is quite possibly the worst Floyd track ever recorded.

Guys, idea: Since this is easily the worst PF album, let's not vote for anything and eliminate it all in one go.

You know, if everyone does hate it.... if there was one vote for every song but one, then it'd be over!

No can do. Terminal Frost must win!

Wrong. The Wall and The Final Cut are easily far worse than this.

Learning To Fly and On The Turning Away are both good, and Sorrow is one of the two best songs Pink Floyd ever released.

Summer '68 may be the best, but it has to deal with the fact Sorrow is a close second.

The Dogs Of War. It's so bad that it should be gone before the silly New Machine tracks.

Dogs Of War is a pretty pathetic and embarrassing attempt at being "political," I must say. Not to mention this:

Dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah DAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

Worst. Synth. Ever.

The sad thing is, I think Dogs Of War is one of the better tracks on the album. And by "better" I mean "not a complete load of rubbish." So I voted for An Absurd Vocal Track (Part Two).

Yeah. I generally think Gilmour-dominated PF was far superior to Waters-dominated PF, but Waters has always been far superior at the political lyrics.

It's just a shame The Final Cut lacks a song like Sorrow to redeem it.

Yeah, I don't mind One Slip.

I enjoy about half of this album. The other half sucks.

I remember a few years after it came out when I was in college. I used to love to put it on late at night and lay there while Signs Of Life was playing.

Signs Of Life is a great opener. Prefer it to Cluster One...but neither is as good as Marooned!
