No, they didn't get it right. 
A lot of great songs in that list.

They also mentioned how the critics at the time received those song, which if you ask me it's totally irrelevant.

Aww, "See-Saw" is honestly one of my favourite PF songs. I also really love "Sysyphus", "A Saucerful Of Secrets" and "Learning To Fly".

The Nile Song and Saucerful Of Secrets are excellent.

wrong wrong wrong!  LOL


See-Saw and The Nile Song, among my favorites.

Pow R. Toc H...   downright heresy.         (seems like they tossed a coin or somethin'.. maybe Take Up Thy Stethoscope...? anyway, don't mess with Piper  ;) )
 
Grand Vizier's and Sisyphus we could talk...

About the 80's stuff and onward.. I don't even know it  (except Take It Back, that I like enough).

For the best, I wouldn't mind voting for Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast or Corporal Clegg.

Not really. I can think of many other PF songs that are poorly composed, orchestrated, and instrumented.

Pointless list. Like any other list is totally subjective, and as once a wine expert said: The best wine is the one YOU like, so it applies to music. If the list was one constructed by people votes we can accept it as the most or least liked but never best or worst.
And that is my opinion and applies to all lists.
Long live Progresive music!

^Well then, there will not be much of interest to you in these forums... all lists and polls.

And "Another Pink Floyd Poll"???

Best of lists are done by people who get the songs, worst of lists are done by people who don't get them.

No this is a list made by and for boring people. 8-9 of these (all 1967-1970) are truly amazing.

Well, our esteemed site gets a couple of mentions, and a huge shout out to Hugues who is quoted directly. Oh, the pressures of fame!

I rather like both Fletcher Memorial Home and Saucerful of Secrets, and can listen to Dogs of War without getting overly embarrassed. Aside from that, not much to argue about, really.

Progarchives critic Sean Trane described it as “near-atrocious U2-esque.” Note that a comparison to the band U2 is not a compliment here.

Fantastic Clap

And I always thought he was PA's worst reviewer. Serves me right.

Yep. I only agree with a few being not too good like dogs of war, Seamus and corporal Clegg. Actually dogs of war isn't too bad. Seamus and CC on the other hand.....

Also, let there be more light is a great opener imo.

Seamus and Corporal Clegg are meant to be humorous, not to be taken that seriously. I don't have a problem with them.

That might be so but that howling dog gets on my nerves after a while. ;)

Also, it's interesting that they had most of the Ummagumma studio tracks on the list but not Interstellar Overdrive. IO is mostly just random sounds(some might say noise) and not very musical at all(imo).

Pink Floyd rules!! And by that I mean I have been listening to Floyd since around 1973-74, I have found that almost all of their albums have aged very well and are still more than relevant in my music collection.

No the list is wrong, I mean what list is ever right

Man this writer really seems to have it out for A Saucerful Of Secrets, I love that album! Not their best by any means, but it's certainly an excellent little nugget of psychedelia.
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! :)
