I can't explain this clearly (and it seems to me strange enough), but I prefer The Division Bell.

The Piper is opened by the recorded voice of the first Pink Floyd's producer.  High Hopes is closed by the phone call of the actual Pink Floyd producer to Charlie Gilmour. They are the same album, just the opening and the closure of a big suite 34 years long.

............ which album is 'A Pipper the Gates' ??  Anyway, this is really tough, as much as I've obsessed over 'Pipper' (LOL) for the last 25 years, I go for The Division Bell as it moves me on a more emotional level.  I won't vote coz I love them both as much.

Let me help:

The Division Bell is a masterfully executed concept symphonic album, while "Pepper" is experimental and too raw for me..

The musicianship on the Division Bell is an order of magnitude greater ... which comes with practice. Never mind the sound engineering. 

"Peeper" has two excellent songs and the rest are, IMO, nothing special. The Division Bell is sumptuous listening throughout. 

The Division Bell is melodic, and the lyrics do say somethign that has a meaning and is relevant to me. The "Pooper" lyrics are more like cute, but nonsensical nursery rhymes.

I can't believe that so many people have voted for Division Bell. It's a nice enough album but seriously come on.

meh, to me Division Bell is stale and too tame. It's all very predictable and with barely any excitement going on. I don't think it's a bad record, but it just sounds like Floyd going through the motions without much passion. Piper is revolutionary on all fronts and sounds like nothing else, full of wonders and surprises. It probably also helps that I love LSD and Syd but that record captures a kind of magic innocence and fantasy that few others can.

who is Charlie Gilmour
Son of the current wife of David Gilmour, adopted by the guitarist. You can hear the phone call some seconds after the end of High Hopes

This is exactly what Syd was making. He was fascinated by fairy tales and nursery rhymes. He was a 360° artist. The sound of the words was sometimes more important than their meanings (Mathilda Mother: "wondering and Dreaming, the words had different meanings"). Think to the sound of  "floating down the sound resounds around the icy waters underground".  This is genius!
