Atom Heart Mother, beats out Echoes, which beats out the other two by a considerable distance.

I thought this poll was missing something, and then I get it. Pink Floyd's long epics all lose their meanings when compared to the 5-minute masterpiece of "Wish You Were Here".

The Atom Heart Mother suite.  I think Geesin, and Aldiss, did terrific work on it.

Shine On for me (played all parts together). However, if I think about it, I could have gone for any option and be satisfied with it (the "I can't decide" option included). All of this songs are just perfect to my ears.

I've read some nonsense on here but this just about takes the biscuit.  We really do need a "facepalm" emoticom.
 
OK, you try summarizing it in one sentence! :)

Something like this. 
An impossible choice really. 
It is entirely not like: What would you have for dinner: python, boa, viper, cobra or sea serpent?

I think they all might be equally good, but Shine on will always be special to me.

Echoes by far !! Gives me chills down the spine every time I listen to it and has influenced me a lot, musically and lyrically speaking.
