    Can't agree with you, although DB is a great album. But I must compliment you on your love of Jobson and Ambrosia!

    I love it.. by far one of my top favorite floyd albums.

    To me this is Roger Waters at his best.. what a great album to kick back to like a good movie, turn the lights low and use your imagination.

    Dark Side Of The Moon for me because it was such an innovative and groundbreaking album. Wish You Were Here is a close second. I can understand the reasons for all the various choices though.

    It is kind of wonderful that apart from A Saucerful of Secrets and the More Soundtrack, every album has votes. They were indeed some band that had creative peaks often. I'm even starting to like AMLOR.

    I can't pick one.

    Saw a Pink Floyd tribute band at the local dive bar last night. They were very good and I had a blast!

    I chose Obscured by Clouds; but not with any particular 'enthusiasm' for it as an album over any of the others - more based on the consistency, I suppose, with which I enjoy listening to it all, as an album, rather than choosing an album because it happens to have an all time favourite piece on it, even if I think the rest of the album is disappointing, to whatever degree.

    For example, My favourite PF piece is probably Echoes, but I find most of the rest of Meddle to be, well, not very interesting. I personally have a soft spot for Fat Old Sun and Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, but Atom Heart Mother, to me, is a now quite badly dated period piece.

    'Saucerful' I find wildly inconsistent, likewise, even though it has Set The Controls on it. Ummagumma is a great live album.... and Grantchester Meadows.

    'Piper' is an album by a Floyd that might-have-been, and to choose it would be to choose Syd Barrett, in effect, and to do a disservice to the remaining however-many percent of the whole - and wholly different -PF canon.

    I played DSOTM to death when it first came out, when I was 14. I haven't listened to it much since. Victim of it's own success and where the slick, corporate-sounding, biting-the-hand-that-feeds, stomach turning, Poor Little Rock Star, Waters-dominated Floyd really dug in deep. Wish You Were Here likewise, and the Wall was it's apogee. I stopped listening after the Wall.

    Animals is too depressing for me to listen to at all, now.


    Obscured sounds like a very good band, making a reasonably consistent album, with no pressure to do anything NEW, DIFFERENT or FAR OUT.

    A whole week in the Honky Chateau, and somebody else stringing out the line for them to peg their washing on!

    They should have tried it more often, IMHO

    Re: Which is your favourite Pink Floyd Album?

    I voted for Animals. It's my favorite Pink Floyd album. A nice balance between sprawling composition and bad ass rock n roll. Gilmour and Wright both get some fine solos in it (particularly on Dogs and Sheep).

    As for Ummagumma, it's the only place in the official canon (other than Live In Pompeii, which I don't think is as good) where you can hear how things like Careful With That Axe Eugene and Saucerful Of Secrets changed onstage. And that's a shame, because Pink Floyd were one of the great improvising rock groups during the pre-DSOTM years, and you really do have to go into the bootlegs to really hear that side of their music.

    As for the studio disc, there's two good songs (Narrow Part Three and Grantchester Meadows) a couple decent instrumentals (the rest of The Narrow Way and the first part of Sisyphus), some intriguing wierdness (Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict) and the rest of it is complete filler.

    Re: Which is your favourite Pink Floyd Album?

    Very difficult choice indeed - I chose The Wall, could have easily been Momentary Lapse of Reason or Dark Side of the Moon.

    I know this will be complete blasphemy for many Floyd fans but The Division Bell is my fave. The songs, performance & production are just so exquisite. I suppose this might be the equivalent of a Yes fan saying 90125 in their fave but there you go.

    Re: Which is your favourite Pink Floyd Album?

    Nice old-ish post resurrected.

    Fave is still Meddle for me - always will be. Final Cut, worse than ever - a shocker, an absolute abomination.

    I can understand the love for WYWH, but Animals, more votes than Meddle? That's hard to take.

    Most overrated (though not borne out on this poll) - Dark Side. Most underrated (as witnessed by the nil points here) - Saucerful.

    I love The Floyd. All of it barring one or two tracks. Meddle is my favourite.

    I wouldn't say that Final Cut is my favourite PF album, but it's certainly top five. Then again I prefer Waters' caustic nihilism to Gilmour's laid back blues. Meddle has Echoes, otherwise it's a bit lame IMO.

    Animals or The Wall. I think...

    The Wall.

    Followed by Wish You Were Here, Animals, Final Cut, Meddle, Dark Side, Division Bell, Momentary Lapse.

    To be honest, I kind of wish the rest didn't exist...
