This is getting silly, but hey.
Two albums in each half, but which do you prefer?

Between the middle three for me.
 
But although I love Obscured by Clouds, Animals and Meddle equally, I prefer DSOTM to AHM or WYWH, so I'll go 72-73.

Meddle and AHM are my favorites Floyd albums, so Atom Half Mother it is.

I went with Roger's half.  While I like "The Final Cut" more than "The Wall" I love the vocal and storytelling quality Roger brought to both these albums (the barely audible voices, the screaming, the over the top vocals)..."The Pro's and Con's of Hitchhiking" continues this same motif and is my fave Roger solo album.

BTW: 7 halves = 3.5 wholes Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Hmmm, it's such a tough choice between Syd's half and a half for assorted lunatics.

This would be pairs not halves.  In this case, I will halve not.

It's very hard not voting for Syd, but Atom and Meddle together....

The half with WYWH and Animals for sure.

Someone should do the 14 halves of Pink Floyd next.

My fave Punk Flute period at the moment is 1969-1971. I'm not sure how that fits in. Ummagumma, the three soundtrack albums and Atom Heart MotherHeart
