Pink Floyd Ranked

Finally listened to their entire discog, here's my thoughts
1Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


In my opinion, the definitive album of progressive and space rock. It has everything; spacey keyboards, sublime guitar work, stellar production, and just generally brilliant songwriting. Fun fact about the album: upon its original release, the record was wrapped in blue shrinkwrap rather than clear, and only a sticker on the front cover signified that the record was Wish You Were Here.
2Pink Floyd
Animals


The new guitar-oriented focus of Waters' writing may have been a ploy to reduce Wright's power in the band, but nevertheless it was still magnificent (ex. the opening chord sequence of Dogs, every solo in Dogs, the epic guitar effects in Pigs).
3Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon


Obviously a hugely influential record, but like Med said in his review of it, the album doesn't really hit its stride until Time (although Breathe is an excellent song in itself).
4Pink Floyd
The Wall


One of the defining concept albums of all time. Sure Waters turned into a tyrant here, but one can't deny the amazing power some of these songs possess. As an album it falters occasionally ("One Of My Turns", "The Trial"), and the story is a bit absurd, but it's still something everyone should hear.
5Pink Floyd
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn


The record that started it all. Floyd's original songwriter Syd Barrett dove headfirst into the psychedelic scene of Britain with this essential release. Highlights include "Astronomy Domine", "Interstellar Overdrive", "Flaming" and "Bike".
6Pink Floyd
Meddle


Piper and The Wall were ranked higher than this because despite the fact that both of them have some clunkers, none are as bad as the horrific "Seamus". Other than that, all songs on here are at least decent ("San Tropez" comes dangerously close to being a filler).
7Pink Floyd
The Final Cut


Basically a Roger Waters solo album. David Gilmour was so upset with how this record turned out that he refused to be credited on the sleeve.
8Pink Floyd
Obscured By Clouds


A great, and often overlooked soundtrack album. Many highlights to be found here, especially the title track.
9Pink Floyd
A Saucerful Of Secrets


This album boasts the essential Floyd tracks "Remember A Day", "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" and "Corporal Clegg" but as a whole feels somewhat jaded and incomplete.
10Pink Floyd
The Division Bell


This album contains the brilliant "High Hopes" but the fact that no other song on here compares to it (as well as the huge amount of nods to the grandiose songwriting style of Floyd's golden age) drags this record down by miles.
11Pink Floyd
More


A fairly average soundtrack, this features some moments of genius such as "The Nile Song" and "Cymbaline" and moments that make you want to rip your hair out, such as "A Spanish Piece".
12Pink Floyd
Atom Heart Mother


This album contains two overlong tracks of experimental bullshit, and three passable average-length songs that would make for a nice EP.
13Pink Floyd
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason


Essentially just an excuse to spit in Roger Waters' face, this cut-and-paste record is one to avoid, although I've heard the tour they put together for it was astounding.
14Pink Floyd
Ummagumma


The live disc is rather intriguing, but on the studio disc everything crashes and burns. "Grantchester Meadows" would be a great song if it weren't so dragged out, and everything else, especially "Sysyphus" just makes you want to groan and goes absolutely nowhere for 5-15 minutes. Worth it for the live performances, but avoid the studio album at all costs.
