    Yeah I agree Goodfella, Live in Pompeii has a great, natural sound to it. Love Nick Masons drum sound from that era. The link I posted on the previous page is from around then too. You might like it.

    Which ones have you not listened to?
    Off the top of my head I can't remember.

    Yeah, what was it about his drum sound from that period, they sound great. I'd like to go into technical detail as to why but I can't.
    I probably could, but at the risk of being a bore, won't.

    Was just curious what hidden gems you hadn't come across yet, some get a bit forgotten about, "More" for instance is a great album.

    I don't recall listening to that, but I may have, like I say got them all, studio, live and compliations. Generally enjoyed most stuff

    Apparently there's a new contender for 'best Pink Floyd' album coming in October. Good news.

    @Salaman

    Anything PF new or old is great news, even if the material is from 1994 sans RW.

    Speaking of best album, still The Final Cut...at least at the mo. I have listened to the album ever day getting on for a year now and it is still sublime.

    @DUFFMAN5

    Surely that should be the best Roger Waters album? :p

    I've always had a thing for the Animals album. It was the beginning of the Waters "takeover" but it's still a classic Floyd album. I love how politically charged and angry Waters is at the state of the country and it's inhabitants.

    As I really like most of TDB I'll be very interested in hearing this "new album".

    I like The Division Bell. It's not a classic album, but it's very enjoyable (and a little cheesy). High Hopes is among the all-time best Pink Floyd tracks, though!

    It has a few cheesy moments such as Coming back to life and Take it Back is gash but there's some amazing stuff on there.
    High Hopes, Wearing The Inside Out, Marooned, keep Talking, Lost for Words etc.

    It's not their best album but it's better than many of them.

    No mention of Atom Heart Mother anywhere in this thread, it's easily their best after Wish You Were Here and Dark Side. Meddle and Piper at the Gates of Dawn are also some of their better albums.

    Final Cut is amongst their worst, but at least it's not as bad as A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

    A Momentary Lapse Of Reason is their most appropriately titled album, complete rubbish.

    I think Money is a great song but it always feels out of place when listening to the complete album

    I really like 'momentary Lapse of Reason' as it goes. It's certainly not a terrible album..I'm quite curious to know more on why one might think that?

    It's pretty hard to chose a favourite Floyd album. They are all pretty bloody good. Animals or the Wall would be my desert Island Floyd disc. Tomorrow might bring another answer I suspect.

    FCUTA!

    The Final Cut is just a Waters whinge from start to finish. It's not a Floyd album, it's a Waters album.

    Meddle and Animals are probably my two favourites but I also like the even earlier stuff.

    .
    But it is though, I know the point you are making of course.
    Im amazed that Floydists don't care for The Final Cut...very strange.

    @DUFFMAN5 You got me wrong, The Final Cut is an amazing album, but it's not easy listening and it's also the album where he kicked RW out of the band and Gilmour doesn't even get a writing credit. It sounds Floydy due to some of his guitar work but really, it's 98% a Waters album. Gilmour hates it, for whatever reason.

    I think with Floyd the most well known albums are that way for a reason. The Wall, DSotM, WYWH, Meddle and Animals are the five heavyweights that all fully represent the band when they were truest to their own sound, and are complete albums with no shit on them.

    All the other albums have some value sure, but I almost don't consider them real Floyd albums.

    My order of enjoyment:


    WYWH=Animals=TW
    DSOTM=Division Bell
    Meddle
    OBC
    SOS
    AMLOR
    ATM
    Ummagumma
    TFC
    PATGOD

    Basically Meddle -> The Wall was incredible, 5 utterly stunning albums, plenty of the earlier and later stuff is patchy.

    Interesting. As Division Bell was released in the CD age. I don't really associate it with vinyl, even though it was released on vinyl too. For me, this is one of my least favourite albums.

    FCUTA!

    It was released on vinyl but squeezed onto one disc, they properly rereleased it on 2 discs a month ago. That's what I'm enjoying.

    It's an inconsistent album but I love it,
    Keep Talking, Lost for Words then High Hopes.
    That's a brilliant end to any album.
