    Most of the people I've talked to say it's Dark Side of the Moon, but I think Wish You Were Here is much better. And then there are those who hold out for the Wall. I'm confused!

    I like Wish you Were Here and Meddle, but Dark Side is also amazing. Pointless to say which is "best" really...

    Well, the Wall does have an amazing theme. For 7th grade at my school, we had to listen to the Wall approximately 93 million times, and write a report analysing it that is big enough to be declared its own continent.
    So I've got understanding of why people like it so much.
    And Meddle is good.

    The Wall is let down, IMHO, by the Trial and a couple of other weak songs.
    I thought the Trial was one of the experiences that made it for me. When I think of the Wall, that song comes to mind.

    Dark Side of the Moon on the way up, The Wall on the way down.

    always worked very well for me and my mates.

    The entertainment provided by watching the effects of Brain Damage and Eclipse of first time trippers cannot be discounted either.

    Dark Side of the Moon and Delicate Sounds of Thunder for me.

    It just wasn't as bad as you're saying it was. The sfx and the singsong style lyrics just made it stand out for me.

    Maybe but a good song is a combination of both good lyrics and good music!

    Or maybe it's just personal preference :)

    Do live ones count?

    If so - Delicate Sound of Thunder.

    If not - The Wall.

    I'd go with the Madcap. It's truly a masterpiece.
    IMHO, of course.

    When I was a teenager, it was The Final Cut - it was one of the first CDs I bought (as opposed to tapes / LPs - CDs were just coming out then) and I listened to it over and over, sitting in the dark in my folks sitting room... Anyways, I pulled it out again a few weeks back, and found it very depressing, and a bit niave conceptually... I haven't listened to The Wall all-through since about 1985, but anything with Comfortably Numb on it can't be all bad, right? So, I guess my answer will be DSoTM - it is the one that has really lasted for me, as I still listen to it right-through on a regular basis.

    Delicate sound of Thunder and Wish you were here and The Wall and ...

    /not good at "ranking" things


    Special Mention to Ummagumma for overall freakyness (Cover art, song titles, songs themselves)

    For sheer sound quality, Amused to Death has a lot going for it. (And it is as much of a "Pink Floyd" album as The Division Bell.)

    Hmmmm.............


    ATD written by Waters, played by loads of people.
    DB written by Gilmour(mostly) and Wright and played by all 3.

    Yer - I was trolling slightly, but for me, writing is more important than playing, and as most as PF output since 1970-something was written by Waters (with Gilmour especially shut-out on the later albums) I don't think it is un-arguable ;)

    Best Floyd album for me is DSotM
    Best solo album is The Final Cut.

    Funny this subject should come up.

    For anyone into reggae and Pink Floyd, check out Dub Side of The Moon. It came from Amazon just after Christmas. Its a labour of love, I've played though 3 or 4 times already.

    The title of this thread is misleading. The truth is that all Pink Floyd albums are worthless.

    I'd go for Dark Side Of The Moon, although the difference in quality between each of the 'concept' albums is so small in my opinion that you almost feel bad for elevating one above the others, they're all that good.
