I don't like anything after The Wall.  The Wall is the album where Roger Waters ruined Pink Floyd.  It's a good enough album, though.

Personally, I would recommend hearing Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, Atom Heart Mother, and Meddle.

Totally agree. More people should explore their psychedelic roots.  People seem to forget that pretty much only them and Deep Purple successfully made the transition from the psychedelic era.  

E is for 'Ergent'.

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. 

Another case of a different version of the album in the USA and UK.  See Emily Play is not on the Piper album in the UK or in the Discovery box.  I used to have Relics on LP which had the track, I need to hunt it down on CD for Emily and a few other early singles.

As to the OP, yes, they really are an album band, so diving in to one of the ones suggested above is the best way.  I was lucky enough to get the Discovery box at half price on sale, so was working my way through with great joy as I loved the band way back when.  They are now 'on hold' as I work through my Beatles stack.

I have an abiding memory of Meddle as some of the tracks were used on a surfing film my girlfriend at the time dragged me to see, I still recall the marijuana fumes drifting around the old beat up cinema we watched it in.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
