Definitely Seamus. This one just might be unanimous.

I really don't listen to this album enough. Seamus is easy here, but I'll have to give the album a play before the next round.

The next series of rounds will be difficult. Here's how I would rank them, for anyone interested.

6. Seamus
5. San Tropez
4. Fearless
3. Pillow of Winds
2. Echoes
1. One of These Days

We're finally getting in to Floyd albums I have an interest in. Horray!

This one is one of my very favorites too. I really like Seamus, but it is the weakest here.

Yes, I really don't find Echoes all that interesting. Every song is good though, Echoes and Seamus included.

It may sound bizarre, but, in my opinion, One of These Days is probably Floyd's third best song. It has a maniacal energy about it that I have never heard in any other piece from Floyd, or, for that matter, any other band.

Kind of feel the same way. I like AHM and Ummagumma but this is one that I actually listen to.

Probably their best album.

Seamus.

And I hope to god Fearless wins this. God, what an amazing song.

I sort of feel like this is Floyd's most sincere and enjoyable album by quite a wide margin actually. They haven't quite yet succumbed to the (IMO) more uninteresting art-rock self-importance of their later albums, but have just passed the equally uninteresting wacky or meandering exploits of previous albums.

Meddle FTMFW.
