    I am partial to Animals today! Great acoustic music happening on that album!

    Being a Floyd nut I like different albums for different reasons.

    Musically - Wish You Were Here followed by the Division Bell
    Conceptually - The Wall and The Final Cut (I actually prefer the overall feel of The Final Cut, especially the orchestration, but The Wall has some real classics - Comfortably Numb & Hey You)
    For the experimental side of things - probably Meddle, Animals & More
    For songwriting & lyrics - Dark Side of the Moon
    For nostalgia - Obscured by Clouds & Ummagumma
    For a more New Age feel - A Momentary Lapse of Reason - Love that intro to the album, some great instrumental passages and The Turning Away is a classic (magnificent guitar solo at the end)

    But if I could only choose one - and I can't really - it would have to be Wish You Were Here. A unique album in my opinion, never to be repeated.

    Their live albums Pulse & The Delicate Sound of Thunder are OK but nothing to write home about.

    Pulse DVD is spectacular.

    I do not really like any of the early albums (Piper, Saucerful etc)

    As far as the solo albums are concerned
    David Gilmour - About Face
    Roger Waters - Radio Kaos & Amused to Death
    Richard Wright - Wet Dream and Broken China

    Of the solo albums Broken China is by far the most innovative

    Albums to avoid - Music from the Body by Roger Waters and Ron Geesin.
    Fictitious Sports by Nick Mason

    Mediocre albums
    On an Island by David Gilmour
    The Pros & Cons of Hitchhiking by Roger Waters

    I do not like any of Syd Barrett's material - Floyd or solo.

    I would say Dark side of the moon too, I love to play it so much that sometimes when I'm not at home, I use to play virtual drums online, and Money is my favourite song to play!

    As EvilB so correctly states........http://youtu.be/9zACEJdFOpA
    I am waiting for the next band that comes up with this kind of creative composition.
