    Which is better, Dark Side of the Moon or Wish You Were Here

    Dark Side certainly sold more but I'm partial to Wish you were here.  Maybe because Dark Side is played more often.

    I tend to listen to Animals or The Wall the most, but since it's not one of your choices i'll take..... Wish You Were Here.

    Initially DSOTM but after time I would have to go with Wish and also for my money the best is Animals.  And that's not to diminish any of these albums

    Tough choice...Dark Side is a masterpiece of musical engineering, but I'll also go with WYWH as my favorite listen.

    Reason: "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is my single most favorite Floyd composition from front to back.  "Wish You Were Here" is in my top 5, easily.

    As good and as deserving of praise as Dark Side is, Wish You Were Here is sometimes underrated, I believe, with too few songs and not as cohesive.  A friend argued that it's inferior because a non-Floyd member, Roy Harper, sings lead on "Have A Cigar"; point taken, but it's a minor point, to me (same could be said about "TGGITS" on Dark Side).  I would argue the album is more concise with fewer extras and less pageantry with hardly a single false note or inflection.

    I have to agree with everyone in regards to "Wish You Were Here". There just seemed to be more emotion in that album.

    I think Wish You Were Here has better songs, but Dark Side of the Moon is better as a total artistic package.  It's not just about the songs but the sequencing and the sound effects and the images.

    If I could only chose 1 it would be Wish you were here.  Then again I prefer Brunettes and nice butts.

    I'll just go ahead and say it:

    FM radio drilling Money into everyone's head, eveyr hour on -- the hour, day after day, year after year after year simply ruined Dark Side of the Moon for me. I would choose Wish You Were Here easily in this debate (although I agree with some here that Animals -- as a matter of taste -- is better than both).

    Personally, Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, and Animals all rank tied for No. 1 as far as Pink Floyd albums go. I like all three equally and can't separate them.
