I think The Lamb is a better album, so that's my pick.

What you say?

Both could have been 1LP, they do drag in places. The Wall for me for the few songs that are amazing and still are..

Not huge on either of these, but The Lamb has some really great sections, like The Lamia.

The Lamb by far. The Wall was far too radio-ready for my tastes. Last Floyd to my liking is Wish You Were Here.

For me both albums are dissapointments compared to their previous albums... they are the albums were the bands lost the sonic beauty that created the masterpieces they released before. However, I still think The Wall is brilliant in it's own (and different) merit, while The Lamb just doesn't do much for me, except for a few independent pieces. I think the concept of The Wall is rather brilliant, while the one on The Lamb just doesn't do anything for me... except put me off with a few lyrics.

I'll take sides 2 and 3 of the Wall and compare to sides 1 and 3 of LLDOB.
Or compare Comfortably Numb to the Cage.
Either way the Wall is the superior album.

Another easy poll.
The Lamb by far.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

The Lamb could have been a great single album, but the story is silly and requires too much filler. 4*

The Wall is a couple of great songs with the rest mostly filler. 2*

"The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" is by far the best album Genesis ever made. "The Wall" on the other hand is even worse than "Animals", which in my opinion marks the beginning of the decline of Pink Floyd

The Lamb, by a large margin, IMHO.

At last someone whose view of Floyd coincides with mine! "Animals" sounded to me like a rehash of portions of DSOM and WYWH with new lyrics and a more commercial sound. Gone forever were the soothing vocals of thei previous albums, and gone forever was the Floyd I loved. "The Wall" took what "Animals" began and added a mega-dose of "I am radio-friendly." If it was good, you wouldn't have heard it on the radio, because by that time mass-marketed music had lost 99 percent of its integrity.
