I find it hard to choose between "Echoes" and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond." As an album, I prefer Wish You Were Here to Meddle, but as songs in their own right, I'm not sure. Today, I'd probably say "Echoes," but tomorrow, it might be "Shine On."

How about you?

I would have to say "Shine On", followed by "Echoes".

All are superb, but first vote for Atom Heart, especially the band-only live versions. Waters is very creative with his bass lines here,.

Any of them other than Atom Heart Mother. Voted for Dogs but I could go a different way on a different day.
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

Shine on you without doubts. More mature and solid than Echoes and very much diverse musically. Any way the 4 pieces are amazing.

I voted for Dogs as I feel it’s still quite unappreciated compared to say Echoes or Shine On You Crazy Diamond, but, also, I just love the whole vibe of Dogs compared to the other pieces.
