I feel like updating the list because it has changed over time, but some new viewers might be confused with the comments. So I'll just leave it for now.

A Saucerful of Secrets is the first PF LP I bought (I had to order it without knowing what to expect, 'cause you couldn't find any PF album on the shelves back in '67!) – right after I had heard the amazing "See Emily Play" on the radio. Can you imagine the thrill of a lifetime this was for the teenager I was then!? It was love at first sight – or at first hearing I should rather say. NO ONE in my classroom or in the schoolyard - including myself! - new anything about PF at the time. Compared to what the musical scene had to offer in the late sixties, it was just mind-blowing, incredibly out of this world! Truly my best musical experience ever! If I were ever to "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" or have a trip in a Flying Saucer, this is THE album I would take with me. In my opinion, SOS is number ONE for ever – nothing less! And PF will always remain my all-time favorite band, even though I was less impressed with – and finally lost interest in – what they did afterwards. Anyway, here's my personal top 10 choice (not an easy one, for every single album contains songs that give me the chills and others I hardly can stand):

1 – A Saucerful of Secrets
2 - Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (I know, it's a concert film, but still...) – and/or Ummagumma (both studio and live versions) if we are to stick to albums only
3 – Meddle
4 – Atom Heart Mother
5 – Wish You Were Here
6 – The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
7 – The Dark Side of the Moon
8 – Delicate Sound of Thunder (again, it's music taken from a concert, but still...) – and/or A Momentary Lapse Of Reason if we are to stick to studio albums only
9 – The Wall
10 – Obscured by Clouds

To make a top 10 pink Floyd albums list . Is a hard task and no matter what you put you are always going to have someone who dislikes or hates the fact you like the sid era. . I always say that the early pink Floyd is still relevant and import. Because without Sid. There would be no pink Floyd. Personally I love everything pink Floyd has made all but the final cut. Which has some great songs on it but not a great album. Love the division bell though I would say you miss the great lyrics of waters. Great list I don't agree with your number one i would put the wall as number one.

Pink Floyd came onto the scene at a great time in music history. A decade earlier or later, and this would probably not have been quite the same band. With that said, and first album by a band is often their best in many ways, because it's usually an introduction to their own original sound. I mean who else sounds like Pink Floyd?

Thanks for posting this thoughtful post!

Mostly Autumn and Airbag sound like Pink Floyd. The former are pretty good, but I do not care for the latter. Airbag is not a great name for a band anyway.

Pink Floyd is still my favorite band although I only listen once or twice a year now. I tend to disagree with almost everyone on this but I believe The Final Cut is their finest album, hands down. The music, lyrics, and message are all nearly perfect for me. I consider it to be one of the greatest and most underrated albums in history. Having said that.....

1. The Final Cut
2. The Wall
3. Wish You Were Here
4. Meddle
5. Dark Side of the Moon
6. Atom Heart Mother
7. More
8. Animals
9. A Momentary Lapse of Reason
10. Obscured by Clouds

^You have The Wall way too close to your #1 spot and you have Animals way too close to your least favorite. I can't decide if I want to take you seriously or not. Speaking from experience, Animals has been able to do more in 5 tracks than The Wall could ever do in whatever amount of tracks it has.

I didn't realize there were correct answers here, so I went back to page one to confirm. Now that's out of the way so what do we do now? You obviously love Animals. I'm quite fond of The Final Cut. Perhaps we can carry our respective torches and still get by.
