Overlooked? Maybe not. You got me there. Over rated? Definitely not.

Just because an album is popular, doesn't mean it's over rated, I'm glad it got what it got. It's really Space Rock and influenced many, many bands to come. Besides, I wouldn't call Mojo's "50 Most Out There Albums" necessarily complimenting the album. It got really popular as well as Pink Floyd singles in 1967, but it slowly died out as Pink Floyd got more popular.

3 million album sales in it's debut isn't really bad, but it isn't top notch the best that they could of gotten.

I think Piper at the Gates of Dawn is a brilliant album; I just happen to prefer the 70's Gilmour albums. In the context of Pink Floyd albums it is underrated. When you stack it against their 70's material, Pipers seems comparatively obscure. Especially against Dark Side of the Moon, and The Wall, two albums which have received tremendous accolades. You can't spend even spend 5 minutes listening to a classic rock station without hearing a song from either album.

I'm not a big fan of The Syd Barret years, but I acknowledge the albums brilliance.

But I think two truly underrated Pink Floyd album are Atom Heart Mother and The Final Cut. Both of those albums receive a lot of criticism and I've spent plenty of hours enjoying both immensely.

I totally agree about both albums. Everything on Atom Heart Mother except "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" is fantastic and The Final Cut is like disc three of The Wall (which, to me, is a good thing).

I've always had mixed emotions about The Wall which I've tried to convey many times. On one hand it's an absolute work of genius. On the other hand, it's beyond catharsis. There's no veil between artistic license and personal history. Listening to the album from start to finish can sometimes be like being paid by the hour to listen to Roger Waters tell you about how he got to be the ****ed up individual he currently is (I'm not implying anything about Roger Waters current mental health. For all I know he could be the most perfectly well adjusted human being on the face of planet Earth)

The Final Cut really conveys a lot of the same emotion that The Wall does without being quite so starkly candid. I definitely agree that it does seem like the third disc of The Wall and it may receive the criticism that it does because from a certain perspective it's just an epilogue to The Wall and a prelude to Roger Waters leaving the band and the ensuing legal nonsense. I think if their was another album between it and The Wall it would be seen as just a great Waters-centric Pink Floyd album, which it really is.

1. Meddle
2. The Wall
3. Wish You Were Here
4. The Piper At the Gates of Dawn
5. Obscured By Clouds
6. Atom Heart Mother
7. Dark Side of the Moon
8. Animals
9. A Saucerful of Secrets
10.Ummagumma

It pains me to leave the More soundtrack off the list because Green is the Colour and Cymbaline are two of my favourite Pink Floyd songs.

this is me, knowin' that feel.

as a huge fan of A Momentary Lapse of Reason i can relate to being a fan of a Pink Floyd album that isn't one of their best. solidarity, my boyardee.

This is also where I felt the Progressive Rock approach kick in,
That's a strange thing to say! They'd been pretty much Prog from the Start. I'd even say Interstalla Overdrive, esp how they played it live, was the very start of Prog. If it wasn't then the title track from Saucerfiul of secrets was and then there's the title track of Atom Heart Mother and Echoes!
