Piper is one of the greatest albums ever made for me. Division Bell is alright but too much of it sounds like a  softcore porno soundtrack. Don't think anything on that album comes anywhere close to previous Floyd efforts, let alone the masterpiece of Piper.

At least you didn't do AMLOR instead of Division Bell :P

 Although I really do like TDB, I had too many great "experiences" with the Piper to vote any other way.

Clap Yeah, Piper is a masterpiece. IMO Division Bell doesn't even come close.

A Pimppppper. Truly seminal and kind of entertaining. As for TDB, I just don't like it. I just -- don't -- like it ... except for a few tracks (though "High Hopes" ain't one of those favorites).


Posted By: glenn_ecko
Date Posted: November 14 2012 at 23:59
Easy one. Piper is one of the most important albums ever made. TDB is a good swan song, nice effort but nothing essential. It is much better than The Final Cut though.

It's funny how different opinions are.

No contest for me. Never understood what's to like about Piper...Don't get me wrong, there are some good songs there but the studio version is much weaker than any live version I heard.

So it's Division Bell by miles and miles and miles...

Well, `Piper' is one of the defining psychedelic albums, nothing else sounds anything like it before or since. I seriously O/D'd on the album years ago. It will get my vote, but....

`The Division Bell' is a grand, melodic and emotional sophisticated adult rock album - and probably worth it for the subtle beauty of `Cluster One' and `Marooned' alone.

Both wonderful albums!

When I write this, Piper and Bell have about the same amount of votes.

I really don't like the Syd Barrett era Floyd at all. The psychadelic, hippy-trippy nonsense of the first two albums does very little for me.
 
But The Division Bell is much more mature and enjoyable.

I actually prefer TDB to Animals and The Wall, but TPATGOD is a masterpiece. Because TPATGOD is so good it took me several years to get to appreciate A Saucerful Of Secrets because it has the misfortune of having to follow TPATGOD.

A Pipper the Gates of Dawn is such a great album. Right behind A Dark Syd the Moon and Wish You Were Hear. But for psychedelic-era albums I prefer Sgt. Pippers Looney Hearts Club Band.

In all seriousness, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn wins over The Division Bell.

If we talk about the real Prog, discovering, pioneering, then The Piper is undoubtedly better by a wide margin. If we talk about mere pomposity, decline, but on the other side about certain commercial success, then The Bell is just better  .

The Division Bell, easily, for me. I love it all, from start to end, and Gilmour's guitar is as good as ever. It's not often that a group fills a CD worth of music all with songs that I like so much. As for Piper, well, it has some nice songs (specially Astronomy Domine), but there's a lot of songs I don't really like.

Piper is a good album.

Division Bell is one of the very few I've listened to which I would consider only giving 1 star to if I rated it.  I have rarely been that bored listening to anything (and I like prog electronic Tongue).

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.

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.

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!

I do get this, and I do not undervalue Syd (rest in peace). The poll question was, however, 'Which album do you prefer'. Had the question been, 'Which album  was more mold-breaking in the year of its release', I'd have gone for "Popper" of course.

That's why there's almost twice as many votes for Piper, right? Ah yes it all makes sense now.

No, it doesn't, which makes your comment barely relevant to what Wanorak said. He said:

Can't we all just bang a gong?

Hey, wait, I think I prefer Piper. I'm sure I do. But I prefer The Final Cut over both of these two.

how was my comment barely relevant? He said "so many people have voted for TDB because it's better" and i'm pointing out that doesn't make much sense because WAY MORE people have voted for Piper.

either way. I don't really care what people like. You're free to dig what you dig. It just annoys me when people keep coming in this thread posting their opinions like it's scientific fact. I haven't reviewed every post of mine in this thread but I feel like I've been good at sticking to "I like Piper cause of ____ and I don't like TDB cause of ____" rather than just acting like what I think is law somehow

Sumdeus, it's just shows that there's no accounting for taste Just like everybody voting for Grendel in the Marillion epic. Some people seem to want to live in the past, even when more recent works by artists are better than their old works!!

Yes, people's tastes are personal and I respect that. What I don't like on this site is people voting for Marillion or Genesis or whoever and voting for Fish or Gabriel or whoever just because it's them and not giving the other singers their proper due Especially when Collins and Hogarth are far superior vocalists IMO and others. They may not be theatrical, but they SING better!

I too like Collins as a singer much more than Gabriel, whom for me is not good at all. I like Fish a bit better, though, but I still find him annoying sometimes; though I still don't know any Hogarth era Marillion in order to compare both singers. However, I still love Gabriel era Genesis more than Collins era Genesis, and I don't know about Hogarth era Marillion, but can't imagine liking it better than Fish era. As for this thread, I have stated before that I like The Division Bell much better than Piper... as a matter of fact, I find TDB among my favourite Pink Floyd albums, just behind Animals and Wish you were Here, and perhaps even above Dark Side.

Piper was groundbreaking.  The Division Bell was OK though.
