As you know the Pink Floyd in Syd Barrett (rip) era was a psychedelic rock band. but after Barrett leaving the band, they try Progressive Rock project. which most of famous albums of Pink Floyd like "Dark Side of the Moon", "The Wall", "Wish You were Here" and "the Final Cut" was in this time...
coz Pink Floyd has many fans, i want to know which frontman is more respected. (specially in ms )

i chose Syd Barrett era. i like Pink Floyd in the way that Barrett did. i respect the Piper at the Gates of Dawn as the best rock album for myself.


Which Pink Floyd Era is your favorite?

Roger Waters (1968-1985)
Syd Barrett (1965-1968)

There is a bad problem with this poll, roger waters wasnt at Momemntary Lapse Of Reason album which was released at 1987.

It's barely mentioned in the poll that Roger Waters since 1968 to 1985.. So that's nothing to do with two years later (1987).

There isn't any mention of Waters playing on Momentary... so what's your point?

David Gilmour (1990-...) this era is wrong; David Gilmour (1987-...) ; this is what I trying to say.

The band made theuir best music from 1971 through 1969. After the Wall they started to loose their touch. Befor 1971 they were weird but they had some good songs. They had some good songs after the wall too but none were like Their 70's stuff. Their best albums were Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish you were here, Animals, and The Wall.

I can't vote!
I like from Meddle on and even into Davids solo work.
Not a big fan of The Final Cut, but I do Have Not Now John in my iPod with all my metal!!!
I should put One Of These Days on there too!

Need to say Roger Waters.

Dunno them completely, but The Wall is so awesome, that i am voting blindly for Waters' era

I always saw Animals and The Wall as a different era than The Dark Side and Wish You Were Here, musically. I'm not a huge Pink Floyd fan or a prog expert so I can't put my finger on it, but I hear a clear change between 75 and 77.

But anyway, eras aside, Piper is my favorite album so I went with the first option. I haven't actually heard Saucerful, though.

Never really understood the resentment against Gilmour.
He was, after all, a major factor in writing and creating the albums in what is being termed the "Roger Waters era", and he is, without doubt, a brilliant guitarist.
For me, the "Gilmour era" started in 1970 with Atom Heart Mother.

I could very easily just write "Roger Waters" without explaining why... because that's just like... ugh, my opinion, man.

But the fact is, most of the best material was put out in his days. However, this is kind of fucked up in a sense too. I'm sure Gilmour played an important role with song writing as well. This is kind of like asking which Beatles Era, do you like more, the Lennon or McCartney?

Kudos to both lads!

It's almost for sure i would say "Roger Waters Era"...
Even if the Roger Waters, real era, is from 1975 to 1985. From 1968 to 1974, they all have great contribution to the band.
And that's the best era... Meddle and Atom heart mother are the best records.
After that we got great albuns, like DSOTM, Animals, Wish you where here, The Final Cut, The Wall...

I only like a few songs with Syd, and a few songs from a momentary lapse of reason or the division bell, from the Gilmour Era.

Roger Waters... He's Roger Waters... The longest era, produced their best albums (Dark Side up to and including The Wall)... WYWH is probably my favorite non metal album ever. I really can't describe Pink Floyd, seeing as they are to much for us mere mortals to fully comprehend, and the Water's era is just my favorite.

Roger Waters era (as it is stated in this poll) although David Gilmour was present too. I've always loved Gilmour's playing. My favorite is probably Wish You Were Here.
