Happy, PINK FLOYD has been one name for at least 3 different incarnations of the band... and all I mean is SYD BARRETT era (he quit after the first album, his shadow hangs over the 2nd, and at least one entire later album is about SYD)  The Without-SYD period transforms into the classic ROGER WATERS lead songwriting era (and I'm not going to talk about BOB EZRIN or The Wall) and post-WATERS stuff like DizzyVision Bell... and though WATERS' last with FLOYD is The Final Cut, it marks the beginning of the end-phase. 
I'm guessing I have to sort of re-familiarize myself with them.  I know a bit of the band's history, but was never really overly familiar with their music.  I'm mostly familiar with the Waters era of Floyd.  I now have about 5 albums, and like them all for various reasons.  Now, after talking to you here, I've picked up: Animals and Wish You Were Here.  Also, I had previously owned Dark Side, The Wall and Divison Bell.

I least liked Division Bell.  I wanna next check out Meddle and Piper At The Gates of Dawn, as both were highly recommended to me.

Songwriting is stronger on The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, and it's much more highly regarded, but I still prefer the creakiness, and creepiness, of Saucerful of Secrets.  After that, until Meddle (and including Obscured By Clouds which is a bit later and 1972) Atom Heart Mother is the more interesting record (UmmaGumma does include the fanfreakin'tastic, live, "Astronomy Domine" ...)

If there are 3 essential PINK FLOYD albums, they are Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Meddle

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
