    Is the greatest. Period. Anyone that doesn't agree can listen to echoes come back and praise the lords or else I will laugh at you.

    Echoes is definitely not the best example. A lot of Pink Floyd's work is best seen while listening to entire albums. Not best hits randomly thrown together. You lose the whole flow of the greater idea.

    Absolutely LOVE them. but Bo0ddha is right, echos is not a good example. Pink floyd's albums are very rare in that the MUST be listened as a whole. Splitting them up just does not have the same effect. If you want a good 40min example, listen to Dark Side of the Moon and/or Wish You Were Here. The Wall is also Awesome.

    I gotta agree with everyone else - Of all albums to praise, you choose, Echoes?

    I would go with these as a top 3:

    Momentary Lapse of Reason
    Wish You Were Here
    Dark Side of the Moon

    I'd make it a top 5 with the addition of The Wall and The Division Bell.

    I'd say they're the best practitioners of the art of album music ever.

    Would that R.W. had stayed with the others, although he has done well enough on his own, I'd say.

    Floyd is the best of the "concept" album makers. Dark Side is the longest runner on the chart although I personally have had more "experiences" with The Wall. Queensryche's Mindcrime is excellent as well. The beauty of Floyd and their earlier recordings is the absence of "Computer Magik". If was all hands on. Tape reels...tasty little moog synths and double tracking. It was indeed an art back in the day. Momentary Lapse of Reason is also first rate.
    Gilmore's dirty blues riffs are top notch.

    Didn't care for the division bell. The writer they hired did not maintain the high standards that I expect from the "true" Pink Floyd.
