I don't think we had this poll before.

Unfortunately only 10 poll questions are allowed, so I had leave out More, Ummagumma, Obscured by Clouds and The Final Cut.

A draw between Atom Heart Mother, Meddle and Dark Side Of The Moon for me.

It has to be Dark Side Of The Moon for me - it's their most consistent.

Wish You Were Here a close second. Meddle third, and then Obscured By Clouds (which didn't mae the poll).

I think Atom Heart Mother is very patchy - I like the short songs, but the title track and that Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast thing are an utter waste of time in my opinion.

I was surprised to see The Final Cut missing from this poll, although I believe one is limited when setting these up. The Final Cut contains some great songs, notably Two Sons in the Sunset, the very last song on the album. My fave album would have to be The Wall, with A Momentary Lapse of Reason Second. In truth, however, all their albums are littered with great songs.

I can't think of A Momentary Lapse Of Reason as being a Pink Floyd album. Only Gilmour plays on it - I think pretty much all of Nick Mason's drum tracks were replaced by session players and Rick Wright still hadn't rejoined at that stage.

The Final Cut is much more of a Floyd album and should definitely be in the poll, though I can't see it being many people's favourite.

I like many of their albums, but on the poll I chose
Animals.

when I first started learning guitar in the late 80s, "Pigs On The Wing" was one of the first songs I learnt to play - and for many aspiring guitarists too I've noticed.


"ha ha charade you are" - love that hook

kudos to PF for ignoring the disco-sells contemporary pressure to go and do the darkest and most creative album of 1977.

I have to agree with that.

Animals

My favorite Floyd album is Animals. Great song writing and music. It was such a departure from others who did the popular thing in the mid 70's. Roger Waters was basically saying, "No, we'll go with what got us here." DSOTM is #2, MLOR #3, The Wall #4, and The Final Cut #5. The other albums are great but a bit esoteric for my tastes although I do love Astronmy Domine. Some of Syd's finest song writing.

Damn GG...great minds do think alike! Animals is my complete favorite Pink Floyd album..must have listened to that album a hundred times. This is one that I wish they would put out in multichannel. Such an experience....and very strong guitar playing. Plus not counting the intro and lead out...there are exactly 3 songs on the whole thing! Dogs is probably my favorite.

Now is it just me or can you not go to sleep till you stop hearing the No No No No No No No No....

Kind of reminds me of a N.W.A. album where the guy keeps looping a sound and the guy finall screams shut the f*ck up! lol

damn GG and gene...anoher great mind to add to that list! LOL

ANIMALS is definetely a great disc and my fav FLOYD album of all time!

of course, The WALL is phenomenol and I really did like the Division Bell back in '94 when it was released.

In fact, I saw them in Chapel Hill, NC when they toured that year.

Minkahed we ahve agreed before.

You know the artwork always gets me to. The little blow up pig always got my attention.

From Wikopedia:

Animals

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/5f/Biganimals.jpg/800px-Biganimals.jpg

The Pink Floyd Pig's first appearence on the cover of Animals.

You can see it between the two front chimneys of Battersea Power Station.The original Pink Floyd pig was designed by Roger Waters and built in late December 1976 in preparation for shooting the cover of the Animals album. The 40 foot, helium- filled balloon was flown over Battersea Power Station on the first day's photo-shoot, with a marksman prepared to shoot the pig down if it broke free. The pig didn't escape, but none of the photos taken that day were considered usable.

On the second day, the marksman wasn't present; but the pig supposedly "broke free" (gaining a lot of press coverage) after a huge gust of wind. It disappeared from sight, and was spotted by airline pilots at 40,000 feet in the air. Flights at Heathrow Airport were cancelled as the huge inflatable pig flew through the path of aeroplanes, eastwards from Britain, over the English Channel, finally landing on a rural farm in Germany that night.

The pig was recovered and repaired for the resumption of photography for the album cover, but unfortunately the sky was cloudless and blue, and eventually the album cover was composed from a composite of photos from the first and second day.

Wed Aug 03, 2005 1:28 am

Well....Wish You Were Here isn't so bad either....but isn't the front side supposed to be fiery red? :twisted: :cry:
