For me, DSOTM and WYWH are the 2 greatest albums ever recorded.

Meddle is great and i have a massive soft spot for it.

The Wall - i love the concept, but just too much faffing and indulgence for me. When it hits, it's epic, but there's too much filler for my liking.

The Division Bell is amazing musically, but it lacks Waters' scathing songwriting.

The rest i'm really not bothered about.

Echoes is a great compilation of their best songs for the occasional fan like myself. One of the best "greatest hits" albums around. I do however have their two biggies on vinyl and Dark Side Of The Moon on a special edition CD,as well. Not too keen on the very early stuff, bordering on glam rock and too pretentious for my liking.

Most early Floyd didn't transfer to well to record, it was ok under trick lighting effects but not to clever in your own front room on a rainy Thursday afternoon. Floyd were finished once roger waters left but his solo albums are well worth the time to track down, but true Floyd fans will already know that. The "final cut" was the first roger waters solo album as the rest of the band were just hired as session players.

I dont own many Floyds especially the later

Ones i do have on vinyl (mostly originals) are
Dark side of the moon
Wish you were here
Ummagumma (2 copies, a uk original and a reissue)
Meddle
Obscured by clouds
Piper at the gates of dawn (not an original)
Relics (also have it on cd)

I also really need to get The Wall again, not perfect but it does bring back memories of an old mate that used to play it all the time, and died back in the 00s
May aswell get Animals too while im at it lol

Dark side of the moon and Wish you were here are two of my all time favourite albums and the 2 i go back to all the time, ones i could listen to every day if i had to

My favourite Floyd album is Pulse, a double live album. Meddle and The Division Bell are very good but I was disappointed with The Endless River.

The live sides of that album is my favourite Floyd - saw them live at the City Hall 3 times in the early '70's. Always thought they were much better live than on record - I saw them perform DSOTM in 1972 and was blown away - when they album was released a year later I thought large parts of it were overproduced and rather pedestrian. All stuff post DSOTM I find pretty turgid - none of the excitement or experimentalism of their early stuff.

I think a subsidiary question needs to be Waters or Gilmour - and for me, it's going to be Gilmour every time. Much better musician, much better singer, much better songwriter.

I only have three Floyd albums (all on vinyl).

1) A Saucerful of Secrets 8/10 [1968]
I lost a certain something to tracks 1–3, side 1, so it rates as my personal favourite. (Yes, it only took 15 minutes.)

2) Obscured by Clouds 8/10 [1972]
I bought this for 50p (without a cover). Sentimental rather than musical attachments.

3) Dark Side of the Moon 8/10 [1973]
Well; everyone else had it, so...

What I don’t have are the two albums that contain my three favourite Floyd tracks:
‘Astronomy Domine’ and ‘Interstellar Overdrive’ (Piper at the Gates of Dawn 9/10);
‘Careful with That Axe, Eugene’ (Ummagumma 5/10).

‘Piper...’: I originally had this – took it to a party but left without.
‘Ummagumma’: I don’t do double albums.
