Pink Floyd Albums Ranked

Ranked based off personal enjoyment.

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
1.
100
Best progressive rock album ever, without a doubt. The build-up on "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is phenomenal on both tracks, with great middle tracks as well.

Best Song: "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5)"

Worst Song: "Welcome To The Machine"
Pink Floyd - The Wall

The band somehow makes this album flawless throughout two LPs, with the weakest side still being great. This album is a perfect way to end their outstanding 4-album streak in the 70s.

Best Song: "Comfortably Numb"

Worst Song: "Stop"
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
3.

Don't really need to write much, because anything I'd say would have been said before.

Best Song: "Time"

Worst Song: "On The Run"
Pink Floyd - Animals
4.

An absolutely flawless album, with songs like "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" and "Sheep". "Dogs" is a top 3 song of the band, and has just about my favorite guitar solo(s) of all time.

Best Song: "Dogs"

Worst Song: "Pigs On The Wing 1"
Pink Floyd - Meddle
5.

After years of experimentation, Pink Floyd seemed to finally find a direction in their music, making some of their most iconic songs like "One Of Theses Days", "Fearless", and of course, "Echoes".

Best Song: "Echoes"

Worst Song "Seamus"
Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
6.
80
Weird how little resemblance this album shares with the band's final album, an obvious fact when you consider the only person to be a member on both albums would be Nick Mason, the band's drummer who rarely sang or wrote anything. As good as this album is, and as sad as Syd Barrett's story is, Pink Floyd's music did take a turn for the best after Barrett's departure, even if it took a few albums.

Best Song: "Astronomy Domine"

Worst Song: "The Gnome"
Pink Floyd - The Final Cut
7.
75
It's been said a million times before, yes this is basically a Roger Waters solo album, but I for one don't particularly have a problem with that. Yeah, I would've wanted the rest of the band to contribute more, but for what it is, this is a pretty solid album.

Best Song: "The Gunner's Dream"

Worst Song: "Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert"
Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
8.
72
Basically "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" if it didn't suck. Some good songs, and overall pretty consistent, especially for an album that is the band's first in 7 years.

Best Song: "High Hopes"

Worst Song: "Wearing The Inside Out" (Sorry, RIck)
Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
9.
67
This is definitely one of the band's most decisive albums. I can see why some would like it, and I can see why some wouldn't. However, no matter how much you like this album there no denying it's messy as fuck. Particularly "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast", the strangest song I've ever heard.

Best Song: "Atom Heart Mother"

Worst Song: "Alan's Psycedelic Breakfast"
Pink Floyd - Obscured by Clouds
10.
65
"Obscured By Clouds" is sandwiched between two great albums, one of which is their breakthrough and most well known, so it's easy to see why the album is often forgotten. But, there are plenty of great songs and instrumentals on this album. It's just kind of your run-of-the-mill early 70's prog album.

Best Song: "Wots... uh the deal"

Worst Song: "Absolutely Curtains"
Pink Floyd - The Endless River
11.
62
It's a pretty nice ambient album, and it's something good to relax or fall asleep to. The thing is, it's not really a Pink Floyd type album.

Best Song: "Sum"

Worst Song: "Autumn '68"
Pink Floyd - More
12.
60
I mean, it's a soundtrack album, so it's not going to be very exciting. But, the first side of this album actually has a lot of good songs, like "Green Is The Colour", "Cymbaline", "Crying Song", and "The Nile Song".

Best Song: "The Nile Song"

Worst Song: "A Spanish Piece"
Pink Floyd - A Saucerful of Secrets
13.
37
Insanely boring and just downright stupid at some points, especially the kazoo solo, that's right, kazoo solo, on "Corporal Clegg". The title track is one of the worst songs ever made.

Best Song: "Remember A Day"

Worst Song: "A Saucerful Of Secrets"
Pink Floyd - Ummagumma
14.
35
Half of this shit isn't even music, just weird sound collages of animals.

Best song: "Careful With That Axe, Eugene"

Worst Song: "Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave Grooving Together With A Pict"
Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason
15.
15
A post-Waters Pink Floyd mixed with 80's production is bound to be shit. "Dogs Of War" is on here and still somehow not even the worst.

Best Song: "Signs Of Life"

Worst Song: "A New Machine, Pt. 1"
