I enjoy this a lot more than I should! A bit like the Wall in that it feels like a Waters solo album with the best supporting musicians possible, only more so.

I always enjoy this album more than I think I'm going to. Having said that, I feel it lacks the magical Floyd dust that they managed to sprinkle over most of their other releases. There are choice cuts, to be sure, but an awful lot of it dribbles by politely (ironic, given the themes). David Gilmour isn't given enough opportunity to show off his chops, and the songwriting is mostly average. It is saved by the highlights, and for that reason, isn't my least favourite Floyd album, but it's probably best that the band stopped functioning in the form they were in at this point, as their creative juices had stopped flowing as freely.

Possibly Pink Floyd's most controversial album. Not because of the subject matter, particularly, but because (as is well documented) it represents little more than a Roger Waters solo album. This doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, but compared to the rest of the band's output, it is lacking some magic. There are some highlights (see below), but overall it misses the creative input from the other members. It's a good album, but that's not really enough for the boys in Pink.
Best tracks: When The Tigers Broke Free, The Hero's Return, The Final Cut

My least favorite Floyd. It's ok, definitely not essential.

I have a clear recollection of picking up the original vinyl release in my local record store at the age of 17 and thinking four things:

- what a dull cover
- why isn't Rick Wright listed
- who are all these extra musicians named
- I suppose as the cover suggests this is the last Floyd album

Musically and lyrically it might as well have been a Roger Waters solo album. Don't get me wrong, I really like Roger Waters solo stuff but I believe he took Pink Floyd down and wanted to do it 'my way or the Highway'. I think it really stunned him when David Gilmour carried on as Captain of the ship without him, I am basing this on numerous articles I have read, not on personal opinion. So having got all that out of the way, yes I like the album which I consider to be The Wall part 2 and I shall always consider this Roger Waters first solo offering.

By the way, I never did buy the vinyl then, I waited thirty two years!

Pink Floyd would probably make my Top 5 favorite bands of all time list... but this is probably my least favorite album of theirs. It lacks the mix of atmosphere and dynamics present in their earlier masterworks. I've listened to this a dozen times over the years and just re-listened once again this evening and my feelings haven't changed.
