Top Ten Most Underrated Pink Floyd Albums

IronSabbathPriest

The Top TenXW

1Atom Heart Mother

The greatest Pink Floyd album ever. It has the Atom Heart Mother Suite, which is almost perfect. Then it comes If, a masterpiece. Summer 68' is so underrated. Fat Old Sun is good. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast is... is... Is a trip.

This album is a masterpiece of trippy music. All of this is enjoyable, althought there are some parts that are kinda boring, like the experimental non-musical part on the eponymous suite, or the breakfast bits on the last song. Summer 68 is the gem of the record. Prog Rock in great style.

Truly one of their better albums. Atom Heart Mother Suite, the 23 minute instrumental, is in my personal top 3 favorite Pink Floyd songs. - Doom

Not the best, but has some great stuff as well. - IronSabbathPriest

2The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

Interstellar Overdrive is a classic, one of my favorite riffs ever. I love Lucifer Sam, Astronomy Domine, Matilda Mother, The Gnome, and I even like Pow R. Toc. H and Bike, but this isn't underrated. It is in almost every list of the Greatest Albums of the 60s or of all time. Syd Barrett left Pink Floyd too soon. He was a legend. Wish You Were Here is my favorite, just because it's his tribute. LEGEND. I think he deserves a Greatest Hits compilation called like that, more than Bob Marley

I hate people who go oh I know Pink Floyd yeah their stuffs great. Then I say have you ever heard of Syd Barrett? They reply with who's that? Really gets in my nerves

Am I the only one to recognise this album for the epicness it is? Syd Barret was a legend. - IronSabbathPriest

3Meddle

Echoes, One of These Days, and Fearless are what I love this album for! - PositronWildhawk

Includes the legendary Echoes. - IronSabbathPriest

4A Saucerful of Secrets

A great follow up to their debut. - IronSabbathPriest

Corporal clegg is one of my favorite songs

It was unfortunate that this fantastic album got stuck between Pink Floyd's 3 greatest albums. First there was of course Dark Side of the Moon, then the comeback Wish You Were Here. Then this came out and after that The Wall. This doesn't get as much praise as it should

Each track compares us to the nature of animals, much like Orwell. - PositronWildhawk

This might just be my favourite Floyd album. It's very progressive, and I don't think I've ever skipped a track. - IronSabbathPriest

6Obscured by Clouds

Very good for just a calm listen.

This soundtrack is also underrated. Just listen to Obscured by clouds, Wot's... uh the deal, Childhood's end, Free four.o - DarkSideOfDragons

7The Final Cut

There are some songs on this album that I really enjoy. - IronSabbathPriest

8A Momentary Lapse of Reason

Not that bad of a album

The same as The Final Cut. - IronSabbathPriest

9The Division Bell

High Hopes is just epic. There are other awesome songs too! - IronSabbathPriest

Listen to "Cirrus Minor", "The Nile Song", "Green Is The Colour", "Cymbaline" and "Main Theme"... this album ist good

This album is so underrated. Ok, it has some boring instrumentals (More blues, Quicksilver, Party sequence), but songs such as Cirrus minor 5/5, The nile song 4,5/5, Crying song 4/5, Green is the colour 4,5/5, Cymbaline 5/5, Main theme 4,5/5 and Dramatic theme 4/5 are very good. - DarkSideOfDragons

Green Is The Colour, The Nile Song and Cirrus Minor are perfect tracks... I love them

The Contenders

11Ummagumma

I like this album mostly because of the live songs. - IronSabbathPriest

12The Endless River
13The Dark Side of the Moon

This is NOT underrated. This is OVERRATED

14Wish You Were Here

It is not underrated, but, if The Dark Side of the Moon is here... I think it's more underrated than that
