Because I really like "Wish You Were Here" and "Animals" as albums.
As for the former, the most of what I enjoy is the pretentious, over-overlong, title-track suites. I do like the hits more in the context of the album, but you are right. Their hits don't represent their albums well. I never enjoyed hearing these songs on the radio.
"Animals" is an extremely impressive album at only five songs. I don't have much to say about it anymore at this time, except for that I do like it! And I never had this shoved down my mouth on Classic Rock Radio.
DSOTM: Not much more to say at this time. I do need to buy it on CD. My Mom was right, these songs are best heard in sequence. And "Money" has never sounded better.
The Wall: I just don't want this. The only hit I like is "Comfortably Numb." And it's a double album. No Thank you.
"Meddle.": I owned an LP copy of this years ago. But I didn't like it. Maybe it just wasn't a good starting point for me. Maybe not the best starting spot for this band.
N.P.: Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
