This poll includes the vocalists in Pink Floyd's most famous lineup.

Edited by The Mystical - June 21 2013 at 07:23
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

Wright/Gilmour in harmony was great but i opted for Waters overall PF sound. Gilmour had the best range though and is a better singer by far

Effectively Syd would have been my choice followed by Gilmour/Wright together (like in Echoes). Calling Waters "vocalist" is a bit too much even though I have invested 300 bucks to bring my family to see The Wall next month.

Voted for Rick.  wish he had sung more.  Still, I love the Floyd no matter who's singing.

Wright had a superb voice but, as in most areas of Floyd, he was dominated by others, mainly Waters.
 
Gilmour is also very good, but especially when he sings with Wright.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

A close call. In Pink Floyd's heyday Roger's venomous singing was quitessential. That's why I vote for him. Nowadays he can hardly sing while David's vocals have improved and do not sound affected by age. But that's another chapter...

Actually, Octopus, I think you were spot on! I would certainly call Waters a `vocalist' over a singer, if you can understand the big difference! He had a hugely distinctive voice, especially on `Animals/The Wall/Final Cut', spitting and manic when needed.

Although, his actual `singing' voice was quite pleasant in the earlier days of the band! `Grandchester Madows', `San Tropez' etc, all very nice!

After Syd left, Rick was almost the lead singer for a brief time.  Roger's voice was never his best asset, and David's voice was better in 2006 than it was in the classic years.

Nick sang on a few songs too, lest we forget.

I love the vocals of Meddle and Dark Side of the Moon, where Wright and Gilmour blended their voices in atmospheric perfection. When Waters took over for the most part on The Wall, my enjoyment of Floyd plummeted
