It is a three-way tie at the moment. Anyone else want to vote?

R. I. P Syd Barrett (06/01/46-07/07/06)
R. I. P Rick Wright (28/07/43-15/09/08)

Wings on the Pig Wrote:Night of a Thousand Furry Toys
Against the Odds
Watching TV
Radio Waves
Dominoes

These are odd winners, in my opinion. For those albums, I would have picked:

Satellite / Reaching For The Rail / Along The Shoreline (can't decide)
Drop In From The Top
Too Much Rope / What God Wants (part III) / It's A Miracle
Home
Maisie / Gigolo Aunt

Also, I'm not hugely familiar with The Madcap Laughs, but I voted Late Night. Fantastic closer, that. I don't know if I'll be able to stomach another listen to this album in the near future, though... it just won't fit with my mood right now.

They were chosen by all members here, so they should be fairly accurate. I am going to ut this to a Tie Breaker now.

I must just have odd tastes, then.

You do, Steve. Your favourite Floyd album is Atom Heart Mother . . .

Dark Globe is, in my opinion, a personification of his feelings during that time. Highly under rated song, very powerful and emotional. "Wouldn't You Miss ME?" says it all.
