There's a few clunkers on that list but I went for Nick's Fictitious Sports because it's not a Nick Mason album at all. I...erm "obtained" it once to have a listen and deleted it pretty sharpish.

I don't delete albums, but I do have a bottomless bag filled with music DVDs. Once an album gets out of my hard disc and onto one of those DVDs I'm sure I will never listen to it again, at least not at home.

"Fictitious Sports" did find a fast way to the bag, but "The Body" was faster. :lol:

IMHO another album should be added to the choices,"The Final Cut", which in essence was a Roger Waters solo project that just happened to be recorded by Pink Floyd. In name only though I believe.

Why don't we add "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" then as well?

I mean, that is a David Gilmour's solo album. Nick and Rick confess that they didn't play much on it, most of the stuff in there is recorded by the session musicians.

who the hell voted for 'amused to death'...... :shock:

perhaps the best solo album from any floyd member, and actually better than some official floyd albums (see momentary lapse of reason for example)......

I really don't like Music from the Body. I'm guessing Waters' fans voted for the self titled Gilmour album which is not bad at all IMO.

I am a Waters' fan myself but I also voted "Music From The Body". Take a look at one of my previous posts for a reason why.

You'd want to be a seriously die-hard fan to listen to that all the way through. It was a toss-up between that and Fictitious Sports when I voted.

I listened to "Music From The Body" all the way through just the other day. No kidding! And that experience only made me absolutely sure that my decision to vote for it here was right.

I find at least half of these to be hard to listen to for an extended time.

I haven't heard them all, but About Face and Wet Dream are dreadful.
