    Match-Cut Band Consensus - Pink Floyd

    The Rules of the Game:

    How to post selections:

    - Assign a rating to each album based on a scale of 1-10
    - Half points may be used
    - It is not necessary to rank the albums. Instead, please post all lists in chronological order, starting with the earliest album.

    For an album to be eligible for the band's overall rating, it must have at least four (4) votes. Otherwise, there isn't a sufficient amount of votes to make the rating as objective or effective as an album that has received twenty (20) votes. If an album is mentioned only once or twice, I will still post that album's average (quite easy if only mentioned once) but I will separate it from the albums that factor into the band's overall rating.


    Pink Floyd - Discography

    Piper at the Gates of Dawn
    A Saucerful of Secrets
    More
    Ummagumma
    Atom Heart Mother
    Meddle
    Obscured by Clouds
    Darkside of the Moon
    Wish You Were Here
    Animals
    The Wall
    Final Cut
    Momentary Lapse of Rason

    Also feel free to include albums like Relics (a compilation, but contains a few songs that were unreleased in the US) or any live albums or bootlegs.

    I currently own about 50 albums from Floyd, so I'll be including some of the more famous bootlegs.

    I am impatient of all misery in others that is not mad. Thou should'st go mad, blacksmith; say, why dost thou not go mad? How can'st thou endure without being mad? Do the heavens yet hate thee, that thou can'st not go mad?

    Weird. I thought for sure I'd have the lowest score for Piper. Most Floyd fans I know IRL tend to think that Piper was their best, and they got worse when Syd left. I've pretty much always felt the opposite. I prefer post-Syd Floyd. Guess I'm not alone with this opinion on MC.

    Those are strange people. I don't know a single person who has heard any Pink Ployd pre-Dark Side of the Moon. Syd Barrett is a non-entity to the entirety of my friends and family.

    I love Sid's stuff when it comes on random play (and I prefer his solo stuff), but not as a complete Floyd album. If we were doing a top 10 songs list instead, then I would probably include one or two from Piper. Like maybe Bike, See Emily Play or maybe even Interstellar Overdrive.

    Yeah, Syd's solo stuff is great, and he did some amazing stuff with Pink Floyd, but they were better at songs when he was in the band than albums. I just put on Astronomy Domine. So good.

    I like his solo stuff best as well.

    I think his best Floyd tune is Jugband Blues.

    "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" is one of the raddest songs ever but I haven't heard any of the rest of Ummagumma.

    The KQED performance is amazing.
