I only really like Astronomy Domine and Interstellar Overdrive from "pipper" but I definately prefer the live versions of those.
DB for me thus.

The Division Bell, easily, for me. I love it all, from start to end, and Gilmour's guitar is as good as ever. It's not often that a group fills a CD worth of music all with songs that I like so much. As for Piper, well, it has some nice songs (specially Astronomy Domine), but there's a lot of songs I don't really like.

Piper is a good album.

Division Bell is one of the very few I've listened to which I would consider only giving 1 star to if I rated it.  I have rarely been that bored listening to anything (and I like prog electronic Tongue).

Floyd without Syd, it's a little bit like beer without alcohol Beer

I like The Division Bell better.  Sorry majority.  I bet if The Division Bell had been recorded first, and the debut album recorded last, people would have opposite opinions.

^ No, they would not. By 1991 A Piper would be a dated product.

yeah gotta disagree there. Piper would still be Syd magic. Division Bell would still be softcore porno. Just the way things go.

What would The Division Bell be in the 1960s?

^ Not a dated product? Something that's never been done before in terms of production?

Then you probably haven't heard Faust.

Well you have to understand Syd is one of my favorite musicians ever. No matter what context his album was released in I would still love it like I love all of Syd's work.I don't think it matters when it was from. Syd would still be Syd and his music would still be fantastic.

... yet less important historically if it came out later (just going along with the argument). It's a favorite of mine too.

That was not in our argument but I'll let that one slip.

Not for me, I still dislike music I think is boring that was undoubtedly groundbreaking 40+ years ago when it was written/released. Wink

Voted for piper. It's got an edge to it and an eccentricity about it that is interesting.

I don't believe I've ever even heard a track from The Division Bell.  Probably should listen to it one of these days.

^ My personal favorites are "Cluster One" and, especially, "Marooned". And since "High Hopes" is a favorite with a lot of people here (I'm not one of those people), you might wanna check that one out too.
