I defined "Classic Era" as the era in which the albums are consistently rated at around 4 stars, though there may be an album/albums that are lower within the selection.

More. I don't understand why everyone dislikes it, it's a gem of '60s psychedelia. 
I consider drone metal to be progressive...

I'm with RedNightmareKing here....I've said it before and I'll say it again, `More' is such an acid-fried, delicate, shimmering beauty, and the last full-blown psych album the Floyd made. So special to me

Momentary Lapse of Reason. It's a gem and it's the first official Gilmour take over.

I love the tracks NOT YET ANOTHER MOVIE, SORROW and TERMINAL FROST

You actually have to have a momentary Lapse of Reason not to live this album. :)

f**k Waters. Loved the Gilmour show!
Belhold the power and gift of BEARD! As Damian Wilson sports a beard now his voice somehow got even better than it already was. :)

For me it comes down to More and Ummagumma, both from 1969. I'll go with Ummagumma, because you get the great live album *and* the studio album (which I always thought was highly enjoyable).

I looked at the list of titles here for approximately 0.73 seconds and went straight for 'Saucerful'.  Me and Saucerful go waaay back to the 'good old days' Smoke

Either ASoS or The Cut. The former is really dated yet spellbinding. The latter is really cold yet very mature. No vote.

Hey Nick, I noticed there's a new Superman movie called `Man Of Steel' coming out, pretty sure it must be you in it if you're throwing a comment around like that in here lol!

But I get it, man, as much as I love the Waters led albums, the Gilmour stuff, especially on `Division Bell' has a lot of humanity and warmth to it.

Ummagumma is my favourite including the 'classic era' albums

(well, sometimes I prefer Atom Heart Mother, but these two are it for me)
