Best Pink Floyd Albums

Pink Floyd is a legendary band for a reason. From 1967-1977 there were five of the best albums in the history of rock and these are the five discs. If you're a fan of rock music (particularly psychedelic rock music), then you should have these five albums in your collection. Until you do, your collection is not complete.

1967 – Piper at the Gates of Dawn

debut album by Pink Floyd was his only album with singer original leader, songwriter and guitarist Syd Barrett at the helm and that's why it sounds unlike anything else the band ever recorded. If you do not know the history of Barrett then I recommend that you look at it as it is truly fascinating.

But you do not have to know your life story to enjoy this incredible music was very influential creative not only in the future incarnation of Pink Floyd (who enjoy a much greater commercial success), but also many other musical artists. Today many are inspired by the unique music on this psychedelic masterpiece.

Strangely eccentric "pop music" (I use that phrase in the loosest way imaginable form) as "bicycle" to the incredible psychedelic freak-out "Interstellar Overdrive" this is an album that really takes the listener on a journey. If you're a fan of Pink Floyd, but their origins have not heard then you should give this album a listen.

1971 – Meddle

After Barrett was thrown out of the group to the Dark Side of the Moon album by the band seemed to be searching for an identity somewhat. During this period, I think that was his best album Meddle. It is best known for classic space rock epic "Echoes." Echoes was the title of the band of recent "best of" collection to give you an idea of what the song is in the career of the band (and is also well known for allegedly synchronization with the last segment of 2001: A Space Odyssey.) "Echoes" is actually the whole second half of the album. But the first half of the album is cool. In particular, the stunning opening track "One of These Days" and the beautiful "Fearless."

1973 – The Dark Side of the Moon

Some say they love this album is "overrated." They are wrong. Some things are just great and this is one of those things. The fact that many people like something does not mean it's necessarily something lacking in the art (although admittedly it is often the case.)

This album is as perfect as an album can get. Every second of it seems to be ideally located within the complex. Yet not a sound worked for him. He manages to stay fresh and alive even though perfection is overwhelming.

1975 – Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd was certainly in the top of his game during this period. If you do enjoy the instrumental and then open the scrapbook and closing ("Shine On You Crazy Diamond") no doubt you've enjoyed.

But then there's the three songs in the middle and they are all fantastic too. "Welcome to the Machine", "Have a Cigar" and "Wish You Were Here" are each among the most great songs of the band.

1977 – Animals

Animals, to me, is not as easy as going into the other four albums I've listed here but certainly has its rewards once they are able to "get it." It has a dirtier, noisier than the sound we hear in the last three albums listed here (Piper at the Gates can not even really compare as it is from another world.)

Where is the wall?

You may be wondering Where is the wall? I'm not a big fan of the album really. It has some great songs, but overall it sounds very overproduced for me. You know what he said Dark Side of the Moon sound not working for me? This makes. This sounds like there was almost too much thought put into it (which is not exactly what I say but is difficult to explain why words sometimes get something the way it should.)

The production of the band 80 it seems rather disappointing in comparison what they were doing in the 70s. I do not really listen to The Final Cut, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, or 1994 of The Division Bell. They simply do not have my interest. But five albums listed here course. I highly recommend them.
