Default Top 3 Pink Floyd Albums

Been on a real Pink Floyd kick lately, just can't get enough. My top 3:
  1. Dark Side of the Moon
  2. Wish You Were Here
  3. Animals

While I love "The Wall" it's a little too Roger Waters centric. I think the 3 listed are Floyd at their best, most cooperative state. Gilmore and Waters are both brilliant, and when they worked together Floyd was amazing. Definitely better as a team than as individuals. Atom Heart Mother rates up really high, but is just a bit too early, they were still refining themselves. The Final Cut, well, if I wanted to listen to "The Wall" I would listen to "The Wall."

I wish these guys would do one last hurrah album, despite Richard Wright being dead. I know it won't happen, but it would be epic.

Can't get enough of The Wall, the theme of discontent is so tangible through the music and lyrics.

I love everything before Waters and Wright left, including the Syd Barrett era the early psychadelic stuff. It's hard to go against DSOTM at #1. I'll go with Meddle at #2 on the basis of Echoes alone. If DSOTM is the best album, Echoes is the best song. It's hard to go top 3 so I'll go top 4... WYWH then Animals. The Wall would be 5.

Some Echoes goodness:

"Learning to Fly" turned me onto Pink Floyd. Momentary Lapse of Reason was the first CD I bought. That album was the beginning of my Pink Floyd collection. I still like that entire album, but there are so many good ones.

Sadly FM Radio has totally killed my love of Pink Floyd, You can't turn on classic rock without hearing it.

I love Wish you were here, The Wall, and Dark Side but only on occasion now.

Welcome to the Machine is such an awesome song and it gets played to death.

Yeah, The Wall is great. But I think you start to see the split in collaboration on that one and it loses a bit of what made Floyd great. A little too heavy on the words and a little less reliant on the music IMO.

I like it, but it hasn't been as timeless as some of their other work. For Floyd to be great I really thought the group needed both Water's and Gilmore. They lost an edge and a great lyricist when Waters left.

Their history and the events that made them great and eventually split them is a great story. Check out the stuff on Syd Barrett.

Very true. Syd was the inspiration for a lot of their greatest stuff for sure.

Those are my 3 favorites aside from The Wall. I happen to be a Roger Waters guy, so The Wall is the one album with a heavy dose of both his musical influence and his vocals.

My favorite song is Comfortably Numb, which beautifully combines both of them singing.

I saw Pink Floyd at Mile High in 1994 when I was 16. Lasers bouncing of the clouds above well into the night. Pink Floyd was my favorite growing up, loved those guys the best.

Love Comfortably Numb too.

Nice! I saw them in '86. A pig flew over us and a psychotic guy in a bed. Loved when Gilmore did the solo for comfortably numb on top of the stadium next to the Bronco. And hard to forget a random female saying "Im a virgin, please eff me". Great times :-)

I was in college when it came out, and I was resistant to it because at that moment, I just couldn't accept Pink Floyd without Roger Waters.

I can see it for the good record that it is with the distance of time. But at the time, it was missing something.

I was lucky to be able to see Pink Floyd (minus Roger Waters) on the Division Bell Tour in Columbus, Ohio on Memorial Day of 1994 when I was 22 years old.

I dropped 2 hits of acid before the concert. We sat at the very top and back of the stadium in the 'C Deck'. It felt like we were sitting on the edge of the planet.

It was an awesome show and the weather was perfect. I've been to a lot of concerts, but that was the best of them all.

I've also seen Roger Waters in concert as well....it was a good show, but it would have been awesome to him back with Pink Floyd for one last concert tour, but that ship has passed.

Wish You Were Here (an album for Syd Barret, wishing he was still alive)
Dark Side of the Moon (the album that launched PF into the stratosphere)
Meddle (the song Fearless is an absolute classic)

And all there are certain songs the band wrote and played enfluenced by Syd Barret was still alive that just have a timeless, almost mysticaly powerful feeling:

Cirrus Minor (album More, I think Barret was not in the band at this time)
Remember a Day (album A Saucerful of Secrets)
See Emily Play (Album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn)
Careful with That Ax, Eugene (Ummagumma, Barret not involved)

Edit: Actually, if you get the Pink Floyd album Relics, it's a compilation of alot of good songs. I grew up listening to Relics and it really affected my taste in PF and my love of the old stuff, even though much of it is a little "out there."

I really liked The Final Cut. Not saying it was their best work, just something I enjoyed about that album. Wanted to give it some love, but it does not crack the top 3.

1. Wish you were here
2. DSOTM
3. Animals

I still refuse to acknowledge anything without Roger Waters as Pink Floyd.
