Favourite Pink Floyd Album

Since we're having a "favourites" day, I thought it'd be rude not to include Floyd. Mine's Piper because I'm a huge Barrett fan and much prefer that incarnation, though Waters is a brilliant songwriter. No albums after the Final Cut are included cos that ain't Floyd!

Dark Side of the Moon.

Probably the best album of all time.

The two obvious ones would be Dark Side of the Moon or Wish You Were Here, but for the sheer drama and the fact that I discovered it during a very weird part of my life I went for The Wall. Mind you, Animals was a close 2nd.

I like the most recent one, Echoes, the compilation, as it has a bit of all of them on it, personal favourite one tho' is Animals.

DSotM is obvious, of course, but it's also brilliant.

Can't believe you've never heard it EA - how is such a thing possible?

Us and Them, Brain Damage, Time, The Great Gig in the Sky....aah me.

Whilst Meddle, Dark Side and Wish You Were Here are all probably 'better' albums, I've always prefered Piper.

As for The Final Cut, the only thing I can say in it's favour is that it's better than the film of the same name.

I don't know, "Southampton Dock" to me is that album's saving grace.

They were rather infra-dig when I was a nipper, what with punk-rock and all that...... and then I never really went out of my way to catch up.

Wish You Were Here was the first Floyd album I ever listened to and is the one that is always in the car or on the stereo. It is also a CD that my wife I and shared in common when we met (that I will admit to) and that we listened to in the early days of our relationship.

Crikey..all these threads, I will have to get a Mott The Hoople one started soon.

I've gone for Atom Heart Mother. there is just something spooky about the title track and "Fat Old Sun" is just bliss. It also has a track called "Al From Bromley's Psychedelic Breakfast" which is just the sort of thing we would expect from him.

I really rate Ummagumma and Meddle too. I thought that the successs of Dark Side Of The Moon made them a bit desperate to continue having commercial hits and went off them a bit then.

Saw Roger Waters at Wembley last year, with one of the best backing groups ever. Snowy White, Andy Fairweather Low, Katie Kissoon, PP Arnold, Tessa Niles, AWESOME! Nick Mason made a guest appearance as well. He played loads of Floyd stuff right the way up to The Wall, but his solo material was very weak in comparison.

Heard OF it, but not heard it. Considered buying it as it is generally perceived to be one of the greatest albums ever, but that doesn't mean I'd like it. I don't generally like their sort of music so I didn't bother buying it.

I was at the Wembley concert on the Wednesday with Mrs bobmatt and Men at work and can confirm it was an awesome show (except for my 1st sight of MAWs bleached blond hairdoo). As for floyd albums it has to be "Wish You Were Here". For Waters solo stuff, "Amused To Death" is one of my all time favourite albums.

Dark Side of the Moon for me.

Probably has something to do with Dark Side of the Rainbow. Anyone ever seen that??
