Certainly one of the longest.


That's a bit rich, Jim.

Your "Echoes" positively dwarfs my paltry "Quicksilver"s and "Fearless"s.


Yes, for once.

P.S. "Echoes" is godhead.

That stampeding bit in "Pow R. Toc H." reminds me of Paul McCartney's "Kreen-Akrore"

Since absolutely no-one asked, Charlie O. ranks the post-Piper/pre-Final Cut Pink Floyd albums:

    Dark Side
    WYWH
    More
    Ummagumma
    Saucerful/Obscured By Clouds
    (tie)
    Meddle/The Wall
    (tie)
    Meddle
    Atom Heart/Animals
    (tie)


(That's everything, yes?) Not exactly chronological, then.

You rank Meddle twice. I don't assume that this is an error.

Are you sure it's not upside down then. Honest mistake to make and all that, but where it said "this way up" was the clue.

Forty-four votes, and not one person thought Piper is shit. Surely this is some sort of a record.

Can we do Madcaps next? Or maybe not, if any bastard dares criticise that I will cry.

I enjoy listening to it while I brush my teeth every morning.

Brisk and refreshing.
But somehow when you smile, I can brave bad weather.

I was just thinking we should do both Syd albums (as separate polls) and maybe Opel as well.
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

I couldn't bear it. Syd's stuff is the only music I have ever considered untouchable and sacred. It is the only stuff where it causes me physical pain when people slag it off. It is the only stuff that makes me physically cry and it is the only stuff that I would die (or at least take a minor fleshwound for). Lets give it a miss.

I dunno, Nikki...

Knowing that you're somewhere on your knees crying (and for other than the usual, obvious Saturday Night reasons) sounds too good to pass up.

I'm interested in the flesh wound option.

Pretentious crap. Music made by people who loved LSD for people who loved LSD. It's crap. I checked.
