    I voted for 'Atom Heart Mother', though I like them all up to, and including, 'Animals'.

    After Roger Waters left the group, IMO Pink Floyd quickly went downhill.

    I voted TDSOTM But I actually like them all, they all have merit in there own way IMHO. Although Dark Side is a bit of a stand out along with Meddle and WYWH being close runners up for me.

    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but don’t tell anyone.

    for me it was a toss up between Animals and The Final Cut. I like Waters era better, of the early stuff Obscured By Clouds is my favourite.

    I like all the later albums except Division Bell and Endless River. Momentary Lapse only has maybe two or three decent tunes I still give it a pass. The cod opera stuff on The Wall puts me off listening to it so falls down for me there even though there's some classic tunes on it.

    Dark Side and WYWH I rank about equal but DSOTM does have 'Money' so wins on points.

    Animals just has a feel of that time and place, I don't know how they managed to encode that in the music but they did.

    Not sure I've ever knowingly listened to anything after 'wish you were here'... By then the golden age of rock as I thought of it had largely evaporated...

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    ***SMILE, BE HAPPY***
