At some point, we become disillusioned by our heroes and stopped buying their albums automatically on release (especially when younger and vinyl was expensive).  At which point did this happen with Floyd (if, at all)?

The Final Cut, which I assume will end up being the winner here, no doubt you'll get some PATGOD write in votes

So these polls are basically for folks over 60?

Cheeky is alright by me (unless you're commenting on my vivacious bottocks).

I'm 34 so the only way to really play this game is if we do this with say erm Metallica to which the answer would be Load.

I'm 50 now and I haven't yet started buying anything by any band "automatically on release"...

...erm, right, yes, I admit the poll will have more resonance with more (ahem) senior members of the forum who 'lived' through the grand simplification of prog.

Animals was my last 'automatic' purchase too...but the disillusion happened later, when the radio airwaves were stuck on Another Brick in The Wall.

Though I love Pink Floyd, I never bought their records automatically. That being said, I've always enjoyed their music quite a lot.

The Wall was a poor representation of the band at the time it came out. Sappy! Don't have the minutest inkling to own it.

Lapse and the subsequent live album DSoT, were the last PF I bought. By the time Division Bell came out, I wasn't listening to Floyd. On the menu was tons of RPI and fusion.

For me, Obscured by Clouds.

I already know every album inside and out, I can't stand the arena-rock phase and post-waters either, Animals is my only exception. It could seem harsh to some but it's my opinion 
Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.
