    Having spent the last 2 months* revisiting and listening to nothing (well almost) but PF. I have to say The Wall, it is just a stunning piece of work.



    *I have been a huge fan for around 25 years.More Gilmour than Waters but only because I love axe gods, and he is the better singer of course,for lyrics and everything else it has to be Waters-for he is Floyd

    I find it hard to choose between The Wall, WYWH and Animals....
    The Wall Live album (Is there anybody out there?) is amazing.

    Haven't listened to them in years, but I woke up today with Nobody Home as an earworm.

    Meddle or Animals for me.

    I really cannot choose between The Wall and Wish You Were Here or certain songs from Dark Side of the Moon and Animals, but Final Cut (both the song and the album) holds a very special place in my heart.

    Never could figure out why that album is frowned upon by Floyd fans, although I understand it's more Roger Waters than Pink Floyd...

    I really like final cut as well, there is something about it that is really compelling. When waters does southampton dock and fletcher memorial home live it hits me in the sack. all the time.

    I think with any great band, your fav album normally changes around. I adored animals first. then dark side. Then meddle. Then the wall. But for a good number of years now, i think i settled on wish you were here. its concise, and stunning.

    i been lucky enough to see waters three times now. The wall last year was just mindblowing. knocked my socks off.

    and i saw them at live 8 . Fuck yeah!

    +1

    I like them all for different reasons.

    I actually have a pink floyd cycling jersey and sometimes wear it in events. Always gets comments as nobody else seems to have one.

    Similar to this although mine came from the US

    40th anniversary of Dark Side of the Moon this month. Weird to think that I heard it with my dad when I was almost 2, lying on the sofa upsidedown.

    There are apparently events on where you can all listen to it together in pubs. I think that would work quite well online. Man.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    To my ears, the late Barrett tracks (jugband blues, scream thy last scream and vegetable man, particularly) are really where it's at. But I'm a Soft Machine / Henry Cow / Slapp Happy fan at heart.

    Gotta be Atom Heart Mother innit? ;-)

    It was very sad indeed about Storm. When I was a youngster learning my trade in graphic design, a cool guy I worked with gave me a really nice book called "The Work of Hipgnosis" (Storms design agency). Hadn't seen it in years, so I dug it out the day he passed away, it's full of gorgeous artwork of Floyd and lots of other album covers/inlays etc. Also as a mark of respect for storm, I put some (empty) album covers across my window! Looked great! Gonna read the book again properly, it's interesting stuff.

    As for best album, surely there's only a favourite (to be diplomatic). Been into floyd since my late teens, and one of my most exciting times discovering music was around the early 90's when I started collecting everything Floyd I could on vinyl. There was nothing like getting an album I hadn't heard home and listening to it (nicely toasted) for the first time... ahhhh. Eash one a revelation.

    Enjoyed listening to them all really, I did struggle with some bits n bobs like Atom Heart Mother! :eek: But I don't get the whole thing of being in camp Dave or camp Waters etc.

    However, thinking about it, I can't even name my favourite album, I was listening to some recently after reviving my turntable, and I really enjoyed stuff like Obscured by Clouds again and things I hadn't heard in a while. But I do think it's hard to put one above another sometimes... such quality.

    I've only seen them once, at Earls Court in 1994. Been to lots of gigs/concerts but that really was something special.

    I love Most of them but have a special place in my heart for 'Animals'.

    FCUTA!

    Thought some of you might enjoy this. On 6Music last week I noticed one of the evening shows was playing tracks from "Pink Floyd live at the Paris Theatre". I missed it, but couldn't help wondering where I'd heard of it. Searched on youtube and found out, it was where the bbc's old live shows were recorded.

    It's the full show from 1970-71 and is decent quality. Haven't heard The Embryo in years, great song. Floyd had a wicked sound around then eh.
    Live at the Paris Theatre

    Happy Birthday mate.
    Re the Wall, 41 year old youngsters here ;-)
    Also The Wall for me, I would think I listen to it at least twice a week, and have done for a very long time.

    The rest of their legacy is non to shabby though :-)
