For quite some year now, I’ve been posting articles ranking discographies from many of my favorite musicians and bands. But what do I think are the best albums of all time? Well, that’s far from easy! My list changes often, especially as I’ve been going through the book 1001 Albums You Must Before You Die. (I’ve only listened to over 260 of those so far.) So, here’s a new annual feature: My 10 Favorite Albums series!
1967 was an excellent year in Rock history. Jefferson Airplane released their landmark album Surrealistic Pillow. The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. And two forces that would change the genre forever debuted: Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd. This time, I’m ranking all 15 of Pink Floyd’s studio albums.
The five members of Pink Floyd are:
- Roger Waters–vocals, guitar
- Syd Barrett–vocals, rhythm guitar
- David Gilmour–vocals, guitar
- Richard Wright–bass
- Nick Mason–drums, percussion
Of all the five members, Nick Mason was the only one who appeared on every album. Roger, Syd, and David each had solo careers in addition to their work in Pink Floyd.
