This is asked, so I do it. No multiple votes this time. I put Floyd live albums here too, because there were only three official. Do they get any votes, we will see. If there are now more votes to Endless river than the Wall, I will eat something unhealthy (too much candies). Also I will enjoy that Atom Heart Mother will have at least a minute 100% of votes.

And for this brief, shining moment in time, that incandenscent flicker of life amidst our sorrows, Atom Heart Mother takes the lead. Tomorrow shall bring corruption, but today we realize our collective destiny.

I really wait when there comes a vote to the Endless River. There are already one in Obscured by Clouds.

Obscured by Clouds, just ahead of Meddle and Animals.

Today More. Tomorrow Ummagumma...and the day after Atom Heart Mother......but never ever The Final Cut. Why is that? Because it is rubbish.

This is of course matter of opinions, different tastes etc. and not even absolutely serious but still...Obscured best Pink Floyd album? They composed and recorded it in a few days and you can hear it. I really like tittle track, When You´re In, Burning Bridges, Mudmen and Childhood´s End, but the rest is less or more mediocre. I think it´s the same if somebody´s saying a-side of the Meddle is best Pink Floyd ever made (nobody voted Meddle at all, Obscured got already two votes). If Obscured was the best Pink Floyd album, I don´t think Floyd would have ever risen one of the greatest bands to me.

Noooo! Maybe you should give it a one more try? I listened it few days ago, haven´t before that listened it many years and it was a lot better than I remembered. Hundred times better than any solo album of Floyd members!

Pink Floyd had some amazing albums and a fantastic career, that it's quite difficult to choose which album is the best. My vote will go to Wish You Were Here, but Animals, The Wall, More, Obscure By Clouds, Atom Heart Mother, are also excellent choices. I really enjoy their music.

I've always liked the post-Syd/pre-DSOTM era best. I went with Atom Heart Mother, but it could easily have been Ummagumma. But, wow, where's the love for Meddle?

I love most every release they ever put out...I mean, even if `The Endless River' is hardly memorable, it's by no means a bad album. Pretty amazing bad to have not a single bad album in their discography!

But I always adore `More', their last full blown psychedelic album, and I love its acid-friend rough n' heavy edges and hazy folk flavours. It's such a `summer' album as well, sits alongside albums like Ash Ra Tempel's `Starring Rosi' very nicely

I took your advice and put it on. Sorry but I couldn't make it past the 15 minute mark before I had to turn it off. To me it genuinely sounds like outtakes from The Wall served up without the 'magic' that is Floyd when they are at their absolute best: together cooperating as a team.

Btw I completely understand how some would consider Obscured by Clouds their best album. Maybe it was their first Floyd album. Maybe it was the one that finally spoke to them. Maybe they heard it while drunk/happy/drugged out their minds and it made sense.
The more I learn about other people and their listening habits the more I believe in subjectivity and how nothing is worth measuring without a set of tastebuds...individual as they may be.

Well, you tried it...

Yes, older I get more obscure this world seem to be. No votes to Piper, Ummagumma of Meddle, but already three of Obscured...Of course subjectivity is a main thing in my opinions. But still I think if I had listened Obscured first, I think it would have taken years to me to go back Floyd. I remembered when I heard it first time, really didn´t make any impression to me. So this voting has gone into same way as before?
