Top Ten Most Underrated Pink Floyd AlbumsIronSabbathPriest
The Top Ten
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
My favorite Pink Floyd record. It's so sad that the band hates this album... - Rusty665V 3 Comments
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
Sad was gorgeous
People in the 60s just didn't see the epicness in pink floyd, they were all scared off. It sounds like your walking through a farm tale! Just listen to flaming.V 1 Comment
While it's not as good as their 1970's albums overall, A Saucerful of Secrets was a very important step forward for the band as they found their sound, especially with the title track and Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. I especially enjoy the title track.
Why is Saucerful so underrated? People probably didn't get into it because they couldn't find the appropriate time to listen to it. Try it at night in bed, it's relaxing.
A great follow up to their debut. - IronSabbathPriest
Let There Be More Light, Remember A Day, Set Controls for the heart of the Sun, Corporal Clegg, The title track, Jugband Blues so much great songs it's not even funny. - RogerWatersfan1999V 2 Comments
All the songs in this album are relaxing and more mellow in general. After analyzing the lyrics and giving the album some good listens however, you'll find how sharp the songwriting is.
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
Echoes, One of These Days, and Fearless are what I love this album for! - PositronWildhawk
Includes the legendary Echoes. - IronSabbathPriest
This is one of the most solid albums they've made, with no weak links throughout
It's not underrated overall, but when it compares to the other albums in the band's era widely considered to be the best, then yeah it's underrated. Most people love Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall more, and those are all fantastic, but it would be nice if Animals was properly seen as on par with these stellar albums.
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
Animals is probably not as popular as the other classics because of the huge change in the feel. Everything sounded warm and fun. Wish Y Were Here had a very comforting feel but 2 years later, you have a new album with a cold dark feel. That's why it didn't do as well. But, it was actually one of the biggest albums by them on the other hand.
Underrated compared to the "Big 3" of DSOTM, The Wall, and Wish You Were Here. This is truly a masterpiece... never a dull moment within.V 2 Comments
End of the Roger Waters Era, Post War Dream, Your Possible Past, The Hero's Return, The Final Cut, Not Now John, Two Suns In The Sunset!... Hidden Masterpieces.
There are some songs on this album that I really enjoy. - IronSabbathPriest
High Hopes is just epic. There are other awesome songs too! - IronSabbathPriest
It has High Hopes, Poles Apart, A great Day for Freedom, Wearing the Inside out are really good songs, great album. - RogerWatersfan1999
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
A true PF album, not the ugly stuff they made after Animals. Try to swap any of those for this one and dream away.V 4 Comments
The same as The Final Cut. - IronSabbathPriest
Not that bad of a album
Way better than Final Cut. It's a shame people neglict this album only because Waters was not in it. In this album & in Division Bell David Gilmour proved Pink Floyd could still be the same without Waters.
On the Turning Away, Learning to fly, Sorrow... These songs are better than most of the songs in The Wall and albums below. - MaxPap
I like this album mostly because of the live songs. - IronSabbathPriest
This is NOT underrated. This is OVERRATED
It is not underrated, but, if The Dark Side of the Moon is here... I think it's more underrated than that
I'm voting for this not because I think it is the most underrated, but because I think it should be higher than DSOTM.
It's not underrated, but every other album by Pink Floyd was on this list, so I figured I'd add this one so all of the studio albums can be voted for here.
