    For me Animals, The Final Cut, Meddle, The Wall and Wish you were here are all essentials to own.
    I bought and enjoy the recent remasters on vinyl, however I tend to listen most of the times on their albums on CD.

    I grabbed "The Final Cut" from an Amazon deal last month. Can't say I like it, although Side B is better than Side A, but I'm not sure I'll spin this too much... We'll see if it gets better with more listens.

    My Floyd collection is only WYWH,DSOTM,The Final Cut and Relics. Got a lot of catching up to do.

    Final Cut has grown on me, but I agree that side B is better.
    This essay on the album is enjoyable:

    this is pretty fascinating. thank you for posting.

    i swear by that 2003 pressing. still relatively inexpensive to find if you’re looking for a good version that won’t break the bank.

    And Meddle



    (...and I’d argue Piper At The Gates Of Dawn too because it’s one of the most psychedelic albums I’ve ever listened to, but it’s really a different Floyd, a Syd Floyd.)

    It's best to think of Final Cut as a Roger Waters solo album, and it then becomes a pretty good record. I haven't really had any issues with it.


    Just pick them all up. The new reissues sound great and will be in supply for a long time. They aren't going anywhere, so take your time and just buy them all when you get the cash.

    And add Live At Pompeii to your viewing queue, and prepare to be blown away.

    Try and get the original cut, avoid if the director’s cut with additional footage if you can. I think it’s garbage.

    Love Floyd. Animals is my reference spin when trying new things with equipment etc.
    DSOTM, Meddle and WYWH are essentials too. I liked The Wal but have outgrown it for the most part. Recently been spinning the rereleases of Relics and Pulse. Both are great.

    Figured I should post here as well, pre-orders are up for Magnetic Eye Records' The Wall [Redux].

    This is a cover album, with each song being done by bands of the stoner rock, doom metal, and sludge metal genres. Notable groups from the lineup are: Melvins, Pallbearer, Scott Reeder (bassist for The Obsessed, Kyuss, and for a short time, Tool), Mark Lanegan, Ruby The Hatchet, and Mos Generator.

    This label tends to put out some gorgeous color variants, as well.

    First single is Year of the Cobra playing When The Tigers Broke Free:

    i am irrationally bothered by the lyric change from "... a few hundred ordinary lives" to "... a few hundred men". she/they also changed 'men' to 'troops' earlier in the song which is less egregious but still rustles me jimmies.

    Managed to find a very nice copy of the box Shine On today. The book alone is worth the approx $50 I paid.

    i love those glossy black jewel cases in that set, and that the aligned spines have the prism on them.

    Yeah, happy to see they all were intact, as well as near mint CD's.

    Speaking of box sets, I've recently pondered whether I would buy a Pink Floyd full discography vinyl box set, should one ever be released.

    Thoughts?
