If you can make it all the way through echoes (its a 23 minute song) you may notice the lyrics "Inciting and Inviting me", taken from Across The Universe.

Floyds first album "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" is kind of goofy in my opinion, I think they released See Emily Play from piper as a single, its a pretty cool song.

 

I would suggest Dark Side of the Moon for starters though.  It is probably their best piece of work.

My favorite period in Floyd time starts with Ummagumma and ends with the last note of Animals.

Ummagumma - Not for the faint of heart - some Revolution 9 type stuff, only less depressing.

Atom Heart Mother - A fun listen for me - who knew Alan Stiles liked marmalade?

Meddle - One Of These Days is amazing and Seamus is mellowy (new word). Everything in between is cool. Then there is side 2. Great album.

Obscured By Clouds - I love Free Four! "The memories of a man in his old age, are the deeds of a man in his prime..."

The Dark Side Of The Moon - Third favorite

Wish You Were Here - Second favorite

Animals - Favorite

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I'm not sure of a better place to put this, so I'll shove it here. Today I learned that right at the end of Dark Side of the Moon there's an orchestral version of Ticket To Ride. Apparently it was a mistake in the mastering process, and can be heard on most pressings.

The following people thank Joe for this post:

And Rice Krispies!
