Ha, I only really considered the first album and maybe the second one and a bit of the third one to be Psychedelic.

nice. glad to see another person who loves Piper. I am a fan of Pre-Dark Side era, so this makes me happy.

Yeah, and this is why everyone's going to have gripes about people's music lists.

I am not a Pink Floyd fan.

That being said, I totally adore their debut, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. It is among the most enjoyable albums that I know. I can see some people being bored while listening to Instellar Overdrive. But the rest of the album is to die for! Naive, blatant, thought provoking, mad entertaining lyrics. Catchy, likeable, yet very complex and surprisingly good music and awesome sound effects. My personal favourite is probably the last track, Bike. I consider this album a groundbreaking masterpiece, which puts all other Pink Floyd work to shame (no offense intended, personal opinion only). Please, make yourself a favor and go listen to this excellent piece of art.

P.S. Dont forget to listen to the 1967 single See Emily Play. This track is not included on the album.

Yeah, that's why it's #1 in my opinion. I do agree with Interstellar Overdrive might being a bit boring in the middle. I still enjoy though, Pink Floyd's other work is still legendary but their debut album takes the cake!

I would take Animals over The Wall also. The Wall has some lovely bits but is also weighed down by truckloads of Roger Waters insufferable BS. Animals is one of the most Proggy albums I think the Floyd ever did and it really holds up. An overlooked gem, in my opinion.

i doubt that - serious music listeners usually view it as their best album

it's just the misinformed ones who think the wall is their best

Sorry Howard. No offense. I'm a big reader of music press and have been for many years and I often see Animals getting short shrift. I remember when it got released, it didn't get very good reviews at all. As a result, based on MY experience, in MY universe, I think my statement is perfectly justified.

Granted, I don't seem to spend a lot of time surrounded by 'Serious' music listeners. Most of the ones I know either enjoy a good joke or are socially inept and tend to babble incessantly about Baseball for some reason. And THAT might be a good topic for discussion - Why is it that so many music fanatics, especially VINYL fanatics are also fanatical baseball fans? I'm thinking maybe it's a link between catalog numbers/song listings and baseball statistics maybe? Hmmmm.

Anyway, I digress and I must admit, most of the time spent 'deep listening' to Floyd usually occurred when I was also wanged out on some substance or other. It WAS the 70's after all. I guess that doesn't qualify me as being very Serious either.

i don't even read the music press nowadays

they're getting it all wrong - best place to be are still music forums like this one

i've only been buying MOJO for the CDs, not its contents

professional music writers usually dunno what good music really is

*cough* *hack* Rolling Stone *cough*
