^ The algorithm rarely fails. It's weird. BUT - in my research, it definitely has recommended the same albums/songs to large numbers of people. If you listen to jazz every now and then, I'd be willing to bet that it's recommended this to you at some point (which admittedly, isn't a bad record - I could throw it on during a romantic outing to a quiet italian restaurant)



As for what I'm listening to right now:

I knew it! haha

It's one of those albums I've filed away in my mind for if I'm ever at a party filled with geriatrics and I am given the responsibility of throwing some music on that no one in the room will find offensive (Kind of Blue is also in this camp, despite being a better record).

I’ve just became kinda sold on the entire Pink Floyd thing (I truly despised them for most of my conscious life for being a sort of pretentious-Beatles-rip-off), so I’m listening to a ton of stuff

Among them

More seriously, I'm imagining you're checking out their older, more classic stuff, but don't miss out on some of their newer stuff either - though Division Bell isn't touted as one of their best albums (because it isn't), everyone deserves to hear this tune.

Aren't you an Animals hater tho?

I'm not saying check out all their newer albums, but they've had some great songs since The Wall period.

Sure The Final Cut is decent but Division Bell is best ignored.

I completely agree. I've never once on this forum (and I'm confident about that), claimed that Division Bell is a great album or even an album worth hearing (especially if you haven't explored their earlier material). It's just 'High Hopes' that I recommend from it. It's unfortunate, in my opinion, because that song really deserved a better album.

EDIT: I'm not aware of a compilation off the top of my head, but I'm guessing there must be some compilation album that collects some of Floyd's best songs post 1980. Assuming that exists, I'd recommend that.
