Favorite Pink Floyd album

I watched a show on VH1 Classic last night about the making of "Wish You Were Here" and that got me thinking about what is my favorite PF album. I would have to say "Wish You Were Here" is probably it.

What is your favorite Pink Floyd album?

In a college puppetry class, I used "Careful With That Axe Eugene" as the soundtrack for a puppet show based on the Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll. It turned out wonderfully. The dark music gave it just the right creepiness to my reading of the poem and the creshendo and screaming came just when the Walrus and the Carpenter laid bare their plan to kill and eat the oysters. The teacher was most impressed.

1)The Wall
2)Dark Side of the Moon
3)Momentary Lapse of Reason (On the Turning Away is very close to Comfortably Numb in terms of hair standing on end guitar solos. I get that from about 5 or 6 songs that I can think of)

Pink Floyd is my all time favorite band

I really like the song Echos (not talking about the album, talking about the song).

However, my favorite album from them is... Live at Pompeii

^that album was a really good one

The early stuff is good too like Julia Dream and even stuff with Syd Barrett even though Syd was deeply insane

Wish You Were Here would have to be mine, but that's a tough call. Careful With That Axe Eugene is a great song, not many people know about it now.

There is no way I could pick just one and I have them all. They all have their diamonds and I especially love their long songs like Shine on, atom earth mother, echoes, interstellar overdrive and such. Pink Floyd is my favorite band tho'. Alien rock I can relate to

1. dark side of the moon-fave track 'us & them'
2. the wall-fave trax 'goodbye blue sky,' 'run like hell,' 'the trial'
3. wish you were here-fave track 'welcome to the machine'
4. the final cut (yes i know it's essentially a roger waters solo project)-fave trax 'the final cut,' gunner's dream,' 'your possible pasts'
5. animals-fave trax 'dogs' and my all time fave pf song 'sheep'
6. piper at the gates of dawn-fave track 'astronomy domine.'

but if it's the beatles, kinks, yes, hendrix, elvis costello, bowie, brian eno or the who...never have been able to decide on a fave and the stones keep making
it harder with those dammed remasters with bonus material.

'Momentary Lapse of Reason' because it brings back some good memories.
