My favorite too (probably tied with Animals, but it depends on my mood).

No mention of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn? It was (among TDSOTM, The Wall and WYWH) listed as part of 1001 albums you must hear before you die.

I saw Roger Waters in concert tonight. It was a pretty good gig.
In the second part of the concert he played the Dark Side Of The Moon album in full. Held up pretty well after 30+ years, apart from a section here or there.
And all those Pink Floyd songs he played weren't too shabby either.

Don't bring that one up. I'm probably one of three people that actually hates that record, but I don't consider it essential by any means.

Piper is a difficult listen, and very much a product of the times. Most reviewers regard it very highly, yet it has never really grown on me.
The logical place to go after Dark Side is Wish You Were, which is possibly even better than its more illustrious predecessor. From there, The Wall and Meddle are probably the next steps; Animals and The Final Cut are both brilliant albums, yet they too are inaccessible, the latter wildly so, and will take multiple listens to fully appreciate. I would say that the last two to investigate would be Atom Heart Mother and Ummagumma; the latter is the only Floyd album that I find difficult to listen to in its entirety.

Piper at the Gates is a completely different genre of Pink Floyd. On your first listen, don't expect anything. In fact, just forget they are a band called Pink Floyd at the moment because they are really nothing alike. It is a brilliant record though, but I have to be in a mood to listen to it. And it's not a very Pink Floyd mood. It's psychedelic.
I like it though. There's a lot of fun in that album. They kinda lost the fun after Syd left and became a serious band. It's both wonderful and sad.

Bike!

Perhaps.


Piper is a great album. As Pla said, you just have to ignore Pink Floyd's '68-'94 output, because they were a completely different band with Syd. Viritually unrecognisable from what they were to become. I mean, just compare these two videos:

Arnold Layne (1967):

You wouldn't think it was the same band.

I agree with much of that; however, one notable exception, at least in my mind, would be Interstellar Overdrive. It seems as though that song served as a blueprint for the epics that would come in the future, i.e. Saucerful of Secrets, AHM, and Echoes. Even later songs like Sheep and Empty Spaces seem to owe quite a bit to Interstellar.

I really, really love Meddle, but it's not better than:

Animals
Dark Side
or The Wall.

I think Animals might be the best of the those three, especially in terms of production...I'll give a slight edge to the farm animal sounds over helicopters and alarm clocks. Overall, I think it's also more timeless. "Whitehouse, ha ha charade you are"...pretty current!
