I'm starting to get seriously into Pink Floyd, and someone needs to tell me which album of theirs I need next. I'll be hitting the mall Saturday or Sunday, so by then I'll be buying whatever has the most votes, or whatever someone makes the best argument in favor of. Thanks for the help in advance :horns:

I was a huge Floyd fan back in highschool, and you need to get the Wall dvd.

:fist: :D I'd do that about The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway if I had an assignment that was open-ended enough.

Meddle is the way to go, it has "Echoes" one of their best songs ever made.

I would partially agree with this, in that I love the song Echoes and I think it is essential in the Floyd catalog. However, Animals gets my vote because I think that it is the stronger album overall. Momentary Lapse is also very good.

By the way, Echoes was amazing when Gilmour played it live this year.

Backwards?! HA! I still love metal, but I've come to realize that there's not a terribly large amount of bands I enjoy within it, and that it's almost too easy to do these days. Prog is slowly replacing metal as my bread and butter of listening, with metal becoming my "sometimes" music.

I was dissapointed cause when I bought the album "Echoes" (best of collection) they cut the actual song Echoes down by like 5 minutes :(

I'd say Animals is a great album also, dissapointment might be felt though because it's only 5 tracks long (4 if you don't count the last one cause its the same as the first)

Some of the greatest albums of all time have very few songs. In the Court of the Crimson King has 5, Hemispheres has 4, Wish You Were Here has 5, etc.

The Sultans of Swing does bring a wide smile to my face when it comes on the radio.

I don't have that collection, but that would suck. I was surprised when Gilmour played the entire song in concert. The guitar solos were :drool: It was practically worth the price of admission just for that song.

Animals is great no matter how long it is. You could say it is really only 3 songs long since the other 2 are just kind of an intro/outro. But those 3 songs are excellent, especially Dogs.

I didn't vote because I can't pick between Animals, Meddle, and A Saucerful Of Secrets and think you should buy all three. :tongue:

Hahah, this makes me think of me about 10 months ago... just wait till some j-rock knocks you off course now :eyes: :eyes: .

i'm just saying that usually kids listen to Pink Floyd and Sabbath then move to Megadeth/Metallica then to harder stuff.........

You are listening to metal, then move down to rock. I'm not criticizing you, just maybe an observation.

Well, not rock per se, prog rock. Two totally different things. I can't help it if idiots dig The Dark Side of the Moon, they'll do what they will, point is, Floyd make great music.

The Piper At the Gates Of Dawn is my favorite Pink Floyd album, so I would say get that.

I think you should definately try the Syd Barret Floyd.

Therefore, my vote goes to Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

I think I'm coming to the end of the run in terms of metal albums. I mean, I still have a long ways to go: The rest of pre-Chaos Sepultura, Venom, Bathory, the rest of Children Of Bodom's back catalog, a couple Death albums, Mastodon's Remission, the Scorpions (?) and a couple others. But I'm getting more interested in the land of punk and hip-hop. I'll probably still listen to metal more than anything else in the meantime.

With that out of the way, what's the FIRST Pink Floyd album I should get?

The Wall, no question.
