Oh, sorry, Brian Josh plays a bit like Dave Gilmour and their record company promoted them (unwisely) as "The New Pink Floyd". And Rick Wright and Dave Gilmour liked them (a lot) and they released an album of Pink Floyd covers. That means MA are Floyd clones. Does it ****.  But I love both bands.
 
As for Nimrodel, this is not remotely like Floyd either.
 
But my favourite IS a Mostly Autumn track which does sound a bit Floydian in mood (though not execution) and that's The Night Sky from their debut. Sensational.
 

What a brilliant post. Agree with every word.

My vote goes to....oh, I don't know. For a start, I wouldn't regard Starless as being remotely Floydian, nor Ocean Cloud for that matter.

So, no Nektar songs? That's unthinkable!Shocked
Another amazing "Floydian" track not being on this list:

I never heard "The Night Sky." I've always loved "Half the Mountain." I'm listening to "The Night Sky" on Youtube now!! Thanks for the recommendation :-)
 
Try this youtube clip if you haven't found it:
 
 
If ever there a better combination of images and music, I've yet to hear/see it. The version of The Night Sky is slightly different to that on For all we Shared - it's off one of the compilations and is remixed and improved (hard to believe) and the guy who does the visuals is brilliant. Put it on before you go to bed and you'll be perfectly relaxed.

I'm going to just crack without listening to all of them and vote for Vangelis' "Blade Runner Blues". What is it that you people say here? "It has a very special place for me" or something like that?

Mostly Autumn have a lot of more Floydian (and better) songs. 
I have never thought of Blade Runner Blues as Floydian, but effectively it can be.

However this poll would be a fantastic playlist.
Thanks!! :-) You know, I made this poll, but I still can't decide which song to vote for!  lol :-)

King Crimson's "Starless" gets my vote. It is one of my favourite songs period.

I still disagree but I have really enjoyed the video, as every time I watch to it. Thanks.
