    James, all your answers are at All Music, a rather excellent & pretty comprehensive online database of groups/releases.

    'Animals' is great. Only about 5 songs but some are quite long, probably my favorite.
    'Meddle' is great.
    'Wish You Were Here' is great.

    Saucerful of Secrets
    Piper at the Gate of Dawn
    More
    Ummagumma
    Atom Heart Mother
    Relics
    Meddle
    Dark Side of the Moon
    Obscured by Clouds
    Wish You Were Here
    Animals
    The Wall
    The Final Cut
    Momentary Lapse of Reason
    Division Bell


    I *think* the above list is complete, barring greatest hits selections and concert albums.

    If you are new to Floyd, then you should start with their principal 'middle period' albums which are by far their commercially most successful:

    Meddle
    Dark Side of the Moon
    Wish You Were Here
    Animals
    The Wall

    These were heavily influenced by the bass player Roger Waters and show an increased preoccupation with death, alienation and oppression. They also are beautifully produced and have great melodies.

    The early Floyd albums are rather different and can come as something of a shock to anyone used to The Wall et al. However, many critics consider their early work to be their best. If you like 60s psychaedelia, then you may agree. Start with 'Relics' (a collection of singles, B sides and oddities) then the rest of the albums leading up to Meddle (warning about Ummagumma - it comprises one live and one studio album; the former is superb, the latter is considered by many to be unlistenable).

    The later Floyd is generally considered to be of variable quality (though for some it's Floyd's best work). The Final Cut is largely Roger Water's (by this stage the band was fragmenting), and very very morbid. I personally hate it, but there are those who find it the bee's knees. The final couple of studio albums were done after Roger Waters left. IMHO, they're good, but not up to Floyd's best. But again, others like them.

    Floyd also did a number of movie soundtracks (More, Obscured by Clouds, and a couple of tracks on Zabriskie Point). These largely consist of reworkings of existing songs or not very interesting instrumentals and songs. However, 'What's the Deal' from Obscured by Clouds is grossly underrated and well worth hearing.

    The live albums are okay, but generally add little to the studio versions. 'Is There Anyone Out There?' (the live album from The Wall concerts) is worth getting if you can find the limited edition book-format album, because it has printed interviews, sketches and photos of the stage design, etc, not available anywhere else.

    Happy listening!

    The Final Cut is a favorite of mine too. Extremely underrated. Yes, maybe more of a Roger Waters solo album with Floyd as the backup band, but I think a good epilogue to the Wall.

    By the way, whatever happened to the DVD release of "Live in Pompei"? It was supposed to be out in March 2003, but I don't think it has come out yet. [​IMG]

    I highly recommend the Classic Albums: Dark Side of the Moon DVD from Eagle Rock Entertainment which was released a few weeks ago. Great stuff.

    I'm still waiting for the Pulse DVD.

    The live tracks on Delicate Sound Of Thunder are for the most part amazing. I think "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (though incomplete) is wonderful (better than the original). The tracks from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason sound MUCH better live, and "One Of These Days", "Wish You Were Here", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" all outshine the originals. "Money" and "Another Brick In The Wall (Part II)" however, sound like absolute crap. Just my opinion of course.
    I've got most of Pink Floyd's albums. I never really cared for their early stuff (Meddle is when they started to really click for me). The ones I have are (in order of preference):

    The Dark Side Of The Moon - duh...not much description needed
    The Wall - My first Pink Floyd album...this is what got me into Floyd
    Wish You Were Here - Great from beginning to end
    Meddle - beautiful, especially "Fearless"
    Animals - very long tracks, but I absolutely love "Dogs"
    Delicate Sound Of Thunder - great live album
    A Momentary Lapse Of Reason - enjoyable, but not up to the standards of earlier Floyd
    Pulse - not as good as Delicate Sound of Thunder, but still good, especially the full live version of The Dark Side Of The Moon
    The Final Cut - not a fan of the whole thing at once, but the guitar solo in "The Fletcher Memorial Home", as well as the tracks "The Final Cut" and "Not Now John" are favorites
    The Division Bell - good, but not even as good as A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
    Echoes - The Best Of Pink Floyd - Floyd never struck me as a Greatest Hits kind of band, but this is worth having just for "When the Tigers Broke Free"
    A Saucerful Of Secrets - early stuff, not my favorite
    The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn - More early stuff that I just can't get into

    I hate HTF. [​IMG] I have all the studio discs, Meddle to the present. I always felt it would be tough for them to surpass what they did in the studio. Never really felt a need to get the 2 live ones. Might have to rethink that now. [​IMG]
