>>61725732 It's their best because it's their all encompassing album. Their equivalent of what Soundtracks For The Blind is for Swans. The psych of Piper, experimentalism of the album's between Piper and Meddle, conceptual of The Wall, synths of Meddle, grandness of Animals, and jams of Wish You Were Here all in one.
Animals is the only album by Pink Floyd which I consider incredible from start to finish. Other albums, such as The Division Bell, The Wall and Meddle have absolute masterpieces within them (ie, High Hopes, Comfortably Numb, Echoes, etc) however, they lack the consistency that Animals has.
I think PF have given the music world some of the best albums. I feel like people like Animals a lot mostly because it's the most challenging album. Thou I will have to ultimately say that DSOTM is my favourite, it just sounds better to me and I'm not trying to be a hipster who hates on it because it's their most popular one. For all I think PF are the only dadcore band that has the same quality like indie rock bands such as radiohead
>>61727087 Eh, WYWH feels like more watered down and accessible version of Yes' stuff. Floyd has never been the band known for complex instrumental jams. The first two minutes of Close To The Edge alone have more happening than a single bit of WYWH.
>>61727582 "Gilmour has said the album was 'a load of rubbish. We were at a real down point ... I think we were scraping the barrel a bit at that period'" "Waters said 'If somebody said to me now – right – here's a million pounds, go out and play Atom Heart Mother, I'd say you must be fucking joking.'" Pretty sure they also said that they would be happy if it was thrown in the trash and never listened to by anyone every again. Not saying I agree, actually I love the Suite and listen to it all the time. Just sharing what the Pink Floyd themselves think of Atom Heart Mother.
>>61727897 Yeah AHM is definitely not my top pick, but I enjoy it for what it is. The Suite is great just as their other long psychedelic songs like Interstellar, Saucerful, Echoes. Other than that they're kind of boring songs.
>>61727943 Why are none of them above 8? Pink Floyd is much better than you are rating them for. And you place Saucerful as their top album? What track(s) make you think that? None of them are remarkable, the Saucerful versions of Set the controls and Saucerful of Secrets aren't even great. Ummagumma has the good versions of those. You're way of the mark on just about all the albums.
>>61728087 Honestly I'm a big Floyd and Rog fan and haven't listened to any album past The Final Cut. I'll give them a good shot eventually. I don't want to hate them, I just like the Rog's sound from albums like TFC better than meh lyrics and ok songs.
A Momentary Lapse of Reason is basically a David Gilmour solo album, as he wrote 90% of the content, but if it was actually released as a solo effort, it would definitely be the best out of his solo works. He claims that Roger was depending too much on the lyrics on the previous release, so he tried to make it sound as good as he could, while not caring too much about lyrics.
The Division Bell is one of the most chill rock albums I know. A large portion of its lyrics were written by his wife, journalist Polly Sampson, who writes most of the lyrics in his solo efforts, as well as writing "Louder Than Words" from The Endless River. Thus, many of the lyrics have a more pop feel than earlier Floyd albums, but even so, they're not that bad, especially compared to those on AMLOR or TER. Rick writes one of the songs on it. High Hopes is considered one of their best songs.
The Endless River is a collection of recordings from when Rick was still around. Some from Division Bell outtakes, one from 1968, and a few from this and then. It's mostly instrumental, with one song at the end. It's lyrics aren't that good. The album has a nice flow, but has a tendency to build up for a long time without actually delivering anything special. Probably the worst in their discog, but still decent.
