I have no idea what "infra-dig" means, but I catch your general drift.

I rather thought that everyone would have heard it by default now - Money and Brain Damage (which many people mistakenly assume is called Dark Side of the Moon) at least seem to be constantly played in Malls, Supermarkets, TV etc.

Wish You Were Here is my second favourite - a remarkable effort considering it followed DSotM.

I like Animals a lot too (when I'm in the right mood).

But I'd vote for DSotM purely on the basis of it having Us and Them on it - beautiful sax and piano, and most excellent lyrics.

Mine's Piper because I'm a huge Barrett fan and much prefer that incarnation, though Waters is a brilliant songwriter.
I'll go for Meddle. I prefer the mid-Floyd the most, and this is the album to which I listen the most. It flows effortlessly, and 'Echoes' is 23.30 of prog heaven!
Quote:
No albums after the Final Cut are included cos that ain't Floyd!
I'd say that wasn't one either - but definitely the best Floyd solo album!

Yeah, money is the one with the chinky coin noises, I assume, and Animals must be the one with all the bleating and mooing...... not particularly inspired to go much deeper by those two......

Money is the weakest track EA - give the rest a whirl.

Be drunk or stoned when you dive in though.

And wear headphones.

This track never fails to bring a tear to my eye and should be compulsory listening in the days and weeks ahead.

something to do with smoking dried banana skins or something like that, is it? I'll see if I can find someone who knows how to get "stoned" and report back.

Oddly (since I turned out to be a massive fan of the Floyd) the first time I heard this was around a mate's house when we were about 15-16. I took the piss out of 'Money' as I reckoned it was a rip-off of 'Are You Being Served?'

I'm square and Don't Do Drugs, but a mate of mine years back who did claimed Dark Side was even more of a mind**** when heard quadrophonically.

To think Floyd concerts in the Seventies had 360-degree sound...

Me neither (which is why I'm unfamiliar with the correct nomenclature).

Can't listen to DSotM for the first time without taking in all the weird **** going on in the background in between tracks though. Surely?

Only kidding. I'm sure the nomenclature is perfectly correct but this advocacy of illegal activity should be stamped on before it gets out of hand, I feel.

That's nomenclature and advocacy in the last few postings.
