Pink Floyd fans: what album is your favorite?



I must admit, the only exposure I had to Pink Floyd for the longest time was what the radio played (aka Floydian pop).. so naturally I only delved into the likes of DSOTM, the Wall, etc. (not that those are anything short of masterpieces), in which case I found myself taking to the lesser known songs on the albums more so than the popular ones.

However, lately, I've been really on a kick for listening to their lesser known stuff (at least commercially) and am really enjoying it.

Personally, I have listened to "Meddle" about 5 times in the last 2-3 days (favorite songs are Fearless and Echoes). I've also become very fond of "Soundtrack from the Film More" and "A Momentary Lapse in Reason."

Not a bad album, but I'm one of those sticklers that needs Roger Waters on an album to really think it's Pink Floyd.

That being said, it may be cliche, but I can't take any album over "Dark Side of the Moon". However, I delete "Money" from it whenever I listen. Can't stand that song. I don't think it fits into the flow of the album--maybe heard it too much growing up?

It's definitely a bit out of place with the rest of the album, no doubt.

for me that's an impossible question.

Here is how i will answer it:
Right now, Animals, Atom Heart Mother, Obscured by Clouds, and The Division Bell are 4 of the 6 cds in my car.

my first exposure to pink floyd that completely blew my mind was meddle. I had taken a tab of acid and was in a hot tub. And they put meddle on and one of these days started......WOW.

I am not a huge pink floyd fan. They are alright. But I think that is b.c in high school that is all we listened to when we got stoned. DSOTM, The Wall, maybe a doors album. Repeat.

Animals is probably my all-time favorite PF album. Followed by DSOTM, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, and Piper At the Gates of Dawn.

Not a huge Floyd fan but I do like a good bit of their stuff. My list is atypical of any Floyd fan. These are my favorite for personal reasons, mainly due to experiences with different chemicals in my body.

1. Meddle
2. Saucerful of Secrets
3. Momentary Lapse of Reason

Very underrated album. Learning to Fly is an amazing song and I'm not so sure that On the Turning Away isn't my favorite PF song. Just beautiful.

I'll second that. Love the album, probably my favorite (which is difficult to decide anyway) but Money is my least favorite PF song.

Like the rest of y'all, Money is my least favorite Floyd song.

I would have to say The Wall is my favorite album, for some reason, I've always liked the song "Vera"
