What is your FAVORITE Pink Floyd album?


I'm interested in hearing people's answers to this question. I've long heard how Dark Side of the Moon is the best, greatest Pink Floyd album/CD and I won't argue with those that think it's the best, I love it myself, it's just not my favorite. If I could only choose one Pink Floyd album/CD to take to the proverbial desert island, it would have to be Wish You Were Here. Whats yours?

That's a tough one for me, because I like the different periods of Floyd for different reasons, and I'll turn to different albums when in different moods. So, I have several different "bests."

When all is said and done, however, The Wall (I like the live version put together from the Royal Albert Hall shows) easily gets the most play in my house.

I love them all really. I especially like "Wish You Were Here", "Dark Side" and of course "Meddle" - you can't do much better than "Echoes" for a long trippy jam which was the whole 2nd side of the "Meddle" album. "Animals" is cool too and I think the more recent "Division Bell" is highy underrated. A Pink Floyd album release back in the day was ALWAYS an BIG event and highly anticipated.

I completely agree with everything that Eddie has said.

If I really had to choose just one to be my favourite then it would be "Wish You Were Here".

By the way Droogie - the Wall was at Earls Court in the UK (not Royal Albert Hall), I was fortunate enough to attend both the 1980 and 1981 shows there.

One thing I really enjoyed was the last tour in 1994 - it featured the entire Dark Side of the Moon, had "best of" tracks from the Division Bell, also Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Comfortably Numb (my favourite track from The Wall and possibly my favourite track of all) also One of These Days from Meddle and Astronomy Domine from the very first Floyd album. A great all-round mixture.

Pink Floyd: The Illustrated Discography says: "During the WYWH sessions
a fat, shaven-headed person wearing grey Terylene trousers, a
nylon shirt and string vest wandered into the studio. The band
ignored the visitor and kept on playing and it was the visiting Andrew
King who finally recognised their guest: 'Good God, it's Syd! How did
you get like that?' To which Syd replied, 'I've got a very large fridge
at home and I've been eating a lot of pork chops.' The whole
event was slightly un-nerving since the theme of the album was based on
Syd and his subsequent madness."


About that, Rick Wright said: "The whole album sprang from that one
four-note guitar phrase of Dave's in Shine On. We heard it went, That's
a really nice phrase. The wine came out, and that led to what I
think is our best album, the most colourful, the most feelingful.
Shine On was in the process of being recorded, the lyrics about Syd
were written. I walked into the studio at Abbey Road, Roger was
sitting, mixing at the desk, and I saw this big bald guy sitting on the
couch behind. About 16 stone. And I didn't think anything of it.
In those days it was quite normal for strangers to wander into our
sessions. Then Roger said, You don't know who that guy is, do you? It's
Syd. It was a huge shock, because I hadn't seen him for about six
years. He kept standing up and brushing his teeth, putting his
toothbrush away and sitting down. Then at one point he stood up and
said, Right, when do I put the guitar on? And of course he didn't have
a guitar with him. And we said, Sorry Syd, the guitar's all done."

Hey ozzie I thought this was going to be a Pink Floyd question that you didn't know an answer to and neede it lol!!!! "Dark Side of The Moon" has been documented as "album of the decade", and supposedly anybody in to Rock music has that album or disc. Should we take a poll and ask who has it . I like Their early stuff with Sid Barret which is somewhat "Beatlesque" but for mainstream I'll pick "Dark Side" though I like them all. Recent "Pulse" is cool too. Get The Live at Pompeii DVD if you don't have it. VERY COOL HARVEY!!!!

It would have to be a toss up between Meddle, Animals, and The Division Bell.

I guess it wouldn't be considered an album... but I love the songs on Live at Pompeii... I ripped them from my DVD so I could listen to them as played in order... love it...

So Live at Pompeii would get my vote... if that doesn't count I'd have to go with Wish you were here...

Not sure if I would call it may favorite but I put it on at home more than the others.

Obscured By Clouds

Some of the others are "better" albums but have been overplayed. It is amazing how many people have never even heard of Obscured By Clouds. I have turned quite a few peoples' heads with this one.

I was only moderately interested in that and the soundtrack from "More."

I remember seeing Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, Obscured by Clouds, and Dark Side packaged together as a gift-set. Great gift!

For trading/collecting purposes, the tours around the Atom Heart Mother and Meddle albums totally kick ass. After that, while you'd get some great performances, the shows became quite formulaic.

That's one thing I miss about Sharing the Groove - they had lots of great Floyd BT's.

And, to tie-in with the vinyl thread, the soundtrack from Pompeii is one set that I refuse to part with. Some say it's the definite "Echoes." Not sure I'd agree, but it is damn good.

I think Clay is probably being kind and not posting because his favourite will be some obscure show that none of us have and we will all be drooling over in absolute awe!!!
