Meddle. As much as I love the Syd years, and think that Piper is one of the greatest debut albums of all, Meddle was a complete maturing of their sound that almost broke them out of being the very interesting but still not too solid band they were for a few years after Barrett's departure - In short, the magic was finally working again. Although Side One was a bit shaky, "Fearless" and "One of These Days" are classics, but in the end, it's all about "Echoes."

To me, Dark Side is the most focused and Animals is has some brilliant moments, but for some reason, I always come back to Meddle.

"Meddle" but if you would have posted "Pink Floyd Early Singles" that would have been my choice!!

Live at Pompeii is pretty Freggin awesome too. "Set The Controls For the Heart of the Sun" makes me go in to a trance..

Man, I was torn between Saucer and Meddle, but eventually went for Meddle simply because I'm more familiar with it. Also, once on bad LCD, I listened to Saucerful of Secrets and felt my soul die a little bit.

Good to see some Saucer love! I really dont know how to answer this because I like Animals, Meddle and DSOTM. I love Wish You Were Here and Saucerful Of Secrets. It would be one of these but I cant decide which one.

Dark Side of the Moon by far (generic choice is generic.)

I'm also in love with the album put out by The Flaming Lips, they really mashed a wicked style perfectly into an already flawless album.

^ I actually thought their cover was rather embarrassing, I generally like The Flaming Lips but it was a bad idea doing that DSOTM album

I can't choose between The Wall, DSOTM, Saucerful or Animals..

I listened to Animals today and rediscovered the amazingness of it...

They obviously took the direction the album was going in originally and flipped it on it's ass... but I'm in love with the second half of the album for the most part. Breathe is just plain ugly, don't know what happened there
