This is not a subjective question, and has no business being a poll.

The answer, of course, is all of them.

Piper, Meddle, and Obscured top my list. Really they are all masterpieces, each with its own special place in my heart. I would have to agree with tex that Live at Pompeii is simply they best live DVD out there and the epitome of all that is great about the Floyd.

I would have to vote The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. This was the second Pink Floyd Album I ever heard and I heard I during the greatest summer of my life, the one where I found psychedelia(music, culture and mushrooms that is). Still it's a hard choice. One of the best nights of my life was spent lying in bed with the lights very dim, higher than I've ever been off some REALLY GOOD homegrown cannabis a hippy dude I know gave me and listening to Dark Side Of The Moon, so it has special place for me too.

I absolutely think that Meddle has got to be one of there best. For me it really got me one day when I was listening to it and walking on the side of the road from tiny town to other tiny towns all in the middle of nowhere in the woods on a sunny day in the fall.

Honestly though? People voted Ummagumma!? With the exception of Careful With That Axe Eugene I found it to be pretty terrible, but I guess to each his own.

I LOVE More too. Very over looked album.

Of course I can't count the time I seen The Wall. Even got the DVD.

Wish You Here is one not to overlook either. Some of there their best material on there. Really it's a masterpiece.

I personally think that Saucerful Of Secrets is a great album too. Not there best, but it's got it's share of really great music on there.

As for ex-Floyd member albums I recommend Syd Barrett's The Madcap Laughs and David Gilmour's first solo work(which is self titled). Many put down Madcap, but some of Syd's solo stuff is really good. Tracks I recommend of Madcap are Terrapin, No Good Trying, No Man's Land, Octopus and Late Night. Another great Syd solo work is the song Dominoes, which in my opinion, is as good as anything Floyd did without him.

shades-
YES!...the madcap laughs is by far the weirdest album associated with Pink Floyd IMO.
Just Syd and an acoustic guitar mostly...with a few drums bass and occasional keyboard (though the purely acoustic out takes are far better)
the setting is stripped down and raw.....but syd takes simplicity and weaves it into super strange webs sometimes cold like concrete...sometimes neon warmth....
always unknowing what is around the next turn.
erratic beat and rhythm changes....it pulses and darts and starts and stops like a UFO on a cold winters night.
I FUCKING LOVE IT.
the rest of his solo work is great....but the forced gilmour influence derails syds train from time to time.
the story of "dominoe" is great, after several takes syd couldn't get the guitar track to match up.
so he simply turns the reel over and plays to backwards drums and the guitar (now backwards) matches 100%.
even gilmour was astounded at the pure genius of this simple solution.

I really like Meddle, but this questions is impossible to answer for me. I was obsessed with Floyd when I was younger then I heard more Grateful Dead and became obsessed with their music.

If asked this same question a year ago, I would have said Dark side of the moon. After a very intense experience with a very powerful dmt combination not too long after my mom passed away, would have to say Wish you were here. Holds a very deep personal significance for me and her death. 2nd would Dark side, and third meddle. Never really understood the Wall, but after seeing the wall tour this summer with front row seats, i have definitively grown a very deep appreciation for it.

Oh and live in pompei is the tits!

Its a pity that "Live at Pompeii" was not included in this, as its such a supurb demonstration of their musical ability. that would be my niumber one.

then piper at the gates of dawn, ummagumma, then meddle then more.

I know others will disagree, but i was always disappointed they went the way of concept albums, instead of continuing on from the supurb electronic experimentation inherent within Dark side of the Moon.

my 2c

Cheers, Obtuse.
