A Pink Floyd Introduction (strongest to weakest albums)

DTMR
The list author says: "Having trouble in deciding if you should buy some of the 2011 pink floyd remasters. Maybe you are trying to get into pink floyd and curious where to start. This list will go through the studio albums by Pink Floyd listing them in order from best to worst so if you are looking into investing some of your money into the remasters you should start at the top of the list and work your way down. I personally consider the first 4 albums on the list essential to add to anyones collection."
The Dark Side Of The Moon - Experience Version
The Dark Side Of The Moon - Experience Version
"ESSENTIAL ***** By far Pink Floyd's greatest album. One of the greatest selling albums of all time and an essential peice of music to add to anyone's collection. Contains the classics Time, Money, US and Them, Brain Damage, and Eclipse."
Wish You Were Here - Experience Version
Wish You Were Here - Experience Version
"ESSENTIAL ***** Pink Floyd's follow up to Dark Side of the Moon. Only five tracks in length but contains some of their best work. The albums begins and ends with the epic Shine on You Crazy Diamond. Also contains the haunting Welcome to the Machine, Have a Cigar, and the classic title track."
The Wall
The Wall
"ESSENTIAL ****1/2 The smash commericial hit that ended up breaking up the 70's line up of the band. Highlights include Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2, Mother, Young Lust, Hey You, Comfortably Numb, Run Like Hell."
Animals

"ESSENTIAL ****1/2 Some of Pink Floyd's best guitar work is present on this album. Roger Water's control of the band began showing up on this album. Highlights include the 17 minute Dogs and Sheep."
Meddle
Meddle
"**** Perhaps the best opening Pink Floyd track One of These Days kicks off this album. This album finally showed Pink Floyd were on the verge of creating something special. Other highlights from this album include Fearless, and the awesome audio adventure known as Echoes."
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
"**** The debut album definitly captures the pyschedelic year of 1967. Showcases the talents of the eccentric Syd Barret, who would leave the band due to drug problems and unstable behavior. Highlights include Astronomy Domine, Lucifer Sam, Matilda Mother, Interstellar Overdrive, Scarecrow, and Bike"
The Final Cut
The Final Cut
"***1/2 The last album to feature Roger Waters. More of a Roger Waters album than a Pink Floyd album but still contains some good tracks such as The Fletcher Memorial Home, The Gunners Dream, The Final Cut, and Two Suns in the Sunset."
The Division Bell
The Division Bell
"*** Musically very good but Roger Waters lyrics are greatly missed on the last Pink Floyd album to be released. One of their best songs High Hopes is showcased at the end of this album. Keep Talking and Poles Apart are two other decent tracks from this album."
Atom Heart Mother
Atom Heart Mother
"*** The members of Pink Floyd don't look to highly upon this album calling it such things as an "embarassment" or "complete rubbish" but they are probably a little hard on themselves. The highlight of the album is the 23 minute title track which is weird but fun to listen to. Richard Wrights Summer of 68 is also a great peice that highlights his talents. The last track is a waste of time though."
A Momentary Lapse of Reason
A Momentary Lapse of Reason
"**1/2 Not horrible but not that good. Has some very good tracks and some not so good tracks. The good ones include Learning to Fly, On the Turning away, and Sorrow."
A Saucerful of Secrets
A Saucerful of Secrets
"**1/2 Their second album. Not very accessible. This and the ramaining albums on the list are really for diehard Floyd fans only. Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun is the best track featured on this album."
Obscured By Clouds
Obscured By Clouds
"**1/2 Pink Floyds second sountrack better than the first one."
Ummagumma
Ummagumma
"** The Live album is awesome and displays the best of Early Pink Floyd however the Studio album is something that is very difficult to swallow. David Gilmour's the Narrow Way and Roger Water's Granchester Meadows are really the only listenable tracks on the studio album."

"** There are a couple of good tracks on this soundtrack album such as Cymbaline and the Nile Song but the rest isn't that great. Pick this album up only if you are a completist like me."
