I LOVE pink Floyd and i have most of the solo stuff they did as well. I really thought "division bell" was a fantastic album (even though it's not on PK's poll ) Wish you were here and Animals were great too.


I bought the dave Gilmour dvd the other day,it was kinda funny,he's now just a fat grey headed man playing guitar.......but he does it SOOOOOOO well....definately worthy of a viewing.

Dave Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Gary Moore are the greatest gutarists who ever breathed

'Animals' - a dark, brooding, bitter and vitriolic commentary on society. The music was prog but the attitude was punk.

I'm with PK on the the post split albums. Look at the writing credits and note just how much of AMLOR comes from external sources. Similarly with TBD - most of the lyrics are by Gilmour's soon-to-be wife (and very tame attacks on Waters they are). The problem is that those albums try so hard to sound Floydish that they end up sounding a bit desperate.

As for Waters solo career it never hit the heights it should have. 'Pros & Cons' is a difficult album to follow and 'Radio KAOS' sounds a bit dated now and has the funny situation of generally good individual songs not making up a good whole album. A lot of that has to do with the overall concept. 'Amused To Death' is superb piece of work but its popular recognition never came close to the critical acclaim it received. Like 'Dark Side of the Moon' it still sounds contempary and the themes are very relevant today which is the mark of a truly classic album.

The obvious mid-seventies classics will probably win the poll. For me, "Meddle" (One of these days and Echoes being standouts) and Atom Heart Mother are the ones I enjoy the most. Great records of the time !

Spot on.

Look at the lyrics from Us and Them that I've used as my signature - you wouldn't believe they were written 30 years ago!

I once saw Meddle referred to as the first ever ambient record; not really in to ambient music, but I can see what they're driving at.

And on that point, when I was a student, one of the record stalls with a regular spot at the union sold a number of ambient/trance remixes of whole Floyd albums, including Atom, Meddle, Obscured and Dark Side. Not sure if they were entirely official, as I've never seen them in British record shops, and they came from Holland, home of the bootleg. Unfortunately, being a student I couldn't afford to risk a tenner on them.

A song that really is a rip off of the Are You being Served theme tune is Elastica's Connection.

Surely Psychokiller's favourite track must be "Careful With That Axe, Eugene"?

Thanks for including the 'don't like Floyd' option. We've coming at ya, closing in on first place.

I know its narrow-minded but I still find it incredible that anyone who went through any kind of punk/new wave moment could find it within themselves to not spit on Pink Floyd. Has to be said I've only ever heard Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. How anyone can defend the second one will be a mystery unsolved at my death.

Just as anyone who went through any kind of Pink Floyd moment found it quite hard not to spit on punk, I guess.

Well, you should check out "Piper at the Gates of Dawn", then.
