Best lyrically? tis a hard one, most of the albums they did were good at creating images on the lyrical content. I'm gonna go with Dark Side, not only did I love the sound but how the lyrics really mean something. I will always appreciate how Time makes you sit back and think that it's best to do it now or else rot in old age wishing you had have done something. But the most fantastic piece of Dark Side has to be the combo of Brain Damage and Eclipse. No other Floyd song makes me sit down and think about what the lyrics are talking about. Is the Dark Side all in the head of the insane? or a part of all of us, that safe haven we go to?. Well whatever it is the song will continue to make me think and argue out what is the dark side of the moon... Animals is pretty good aswell .
I think Dark Side of the Moon is so great because it spoke about the things people hate, without pointing fingers to anybody. Brain Damage describes insanity, SOYCD described Syd. Us and Them describes war, The Wall describes World War II. Lyrics are generally better when the listener can relate it to their own life. That's why Brain Damage says so much more than SOYCD, despite the fact that SOYCD is so much more specific.
