Dogs is awesome but Echoes is a masterpiece.

Dogs gets my vote. The middle section of Echos with all the white noise drags on way to long.

I'd be barking up the wrong tree with Dogs, so my vote goes to Echoes - either live at Pompeii or the Crystal Voyager surfer  version. Smile

Echoes gets the nod.
Welcome to the middle of the film.

I can't split them. Of the two albums I prefer Meddle.

I usually dislike and avoid the both options... but in this case I guess I'll have to use it.

It's a dark and foreboding song, perhaps one of the most cynical in prog history. You may just need more time with it.

Yeah, but Van Der Graaf Generator sounding very dark as well. I love Peter's singing on the records. 

VDGG I find has a weirdness factor which lightens the mood, even just a little bit. The same way a dark cartoon will still be somewhat inviting because cartoons are naturally inviting. Pink Floyd are very into realism and psychological horror.
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)

I took the easy way out also. I was tempted to vote for Dogs because of the spacey synth middle section but echoes has that great screechy spooky thing going on. Anyway, a tie for me so I voted both.

Echoes, but maybe these are Pink Floyd's tracks no. 1 and 2 (that means sky high in any general tracks ranking).

Echoes. That means Dogs is dragged down by the stone to the top ten anyway though. My favorite thing on Animals is probably Pigs, but my favorite moment is probably that keyboard solo on Sheep.

Echoes by a hair.
----------
to meet anyone nose at nose
the walls have hearsay
he go to four feet
take the moon with the teeth
he has a good beak
the stone as roll not heap up not foam
