Huge fan here as well! Can listen to them anytime in any mood. It would be very hard to pick a favorite album....

I think the "Is There Anybody Out There" live album is better then The Wall.

One of the first times I boldly went where I hadn't gone before involved Dark Side of the Moon, the floor, and, well, stuff. I didn't want to come back!

Agreed.

Pink Floyd has some really awesome live stuff! Pulse from the 90s is a great concert, album, and DVD!

I've got a bike, you could ride it if you like
It's got a basket, a bell that rings
and things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could
But I borrowed it

...and little gnomes
stay in their homes
eating, sleeping,
drinking their wine.

And then one day
HOORAY!...

For me it was Meddle (Echos, the entire side two of the LP)
I knew I liked you Jer.

I've recently just started getting more into Pink Floyd, have been enjoying tracks like Bike, Money, Another Brink in the Wall, Pt.2 for quite a while but for ages that's been it. Then a few weeks ago Speak to Me/Breathe and The Great Gig in the Sky came on my mp3 player and they've really got me hankering for more.

Sadly they don't seem to be on Spotify, have got Dark side of the moon and the Echoes best of, what do folk recommend for me from here?

Well, there're basically three major eras or phases of The Floyd -

1) the Barrett era where the you had the original Floyd lineup: Syd Barrett on guitar and writing most of the music, Roger Waters on bass, Rick Wright on keyboards and Dave Mason on drums.

2) the Waters era where Barrett fairly lost touch with reality and was replaced by David Gilmour and most of the music was written by Waters

and
3) the 'post-Waters' era which came after Roger Water's split from the rest of the group

The Waters era was by far the group's most famed and prolific. And my favorite. This was from about 1970 to 1989 (I think) and covers the albums Ummagumma to The Final Cut(my absolute favorites are the ones inbetween those- Atom Heart Mother to The Wall).

The Barrett era stuff is great seminal Floyd, great 60's psychedelia. And Barrett's post Floyd solo albums, The Madcap Laughs and Barrett are strange/beautiful/wrenching/brilliant documents of a gifted songwriter who was rather emotionally disturbed and as I said, lost touch with reality and journeyed to the dark side of the moon (as it were) and never really came back, sadly.

The post-Waters stuff was nowhere near as good as Pink Floyd in its heyday IMO. But any Floyd is worth a listen and a purchase.
