Dark side for me also.

I like both but for me Dark side has it by a whisker.
DSOTM for me.
Early Floyd music was definately an acquired taste and it did help to have something illegal while listening (alledgedly!!!)
The albums from Meddle onwards are amazing.
IMHO Radiohead are good but not quite as good as PF.
Although I appreciate that Radiohead are very creative in their songwriting and musicianship, I find a lot of their work too down-beat and depressing, so I don't bother listening to their work in general.
I don't get the same feeling from any of Pink Floyd's work, except 'The Wall', and unlike Mstphoto, find the earliest Pink Floyd work that involved Syd Barrett far more entertaining and interesting.
So, in concluding, and in answer to the OP, I would without doubt choose DSOTM.
I would also listen to any Led Zep album at anytime...
I guess you missed the bit about
Quote: Not really bothered about any references to other albums so please don't go on about Led Zep IV or owt
But fair enough, you did say DSOTM
now I've sobered up...
I think DSOTM has that epic feel to it where everything blends seamlessly into one long piece, but OK computer has more "highlights" - some of the songs on it (Exit Music, Lucky, NO Surprises, paranoid android, air bag, krama police - well most of them) are amazingly moving stand alone songs - as well as blending together to make it a concept album. It's a bit like picking which child you prefer I guess - a hard choice, but I think OK Computer is a more "moving" experience for me - the end of the songs "Exit Music" and "Lucky" probably tilt it in that direction
However, if I've got friends around, it's DSOTM I'd probably play

No Ade - precisely why I did mention LZ, and why I left a 'tongue-out' smiley afterwards.
You hadn't mentioned that you were sobering up, as you are generally much sharper with regard to such frivolities
having been on the site so Long I just KNEW someone would say Led Zep
It's a bit like being in IT and knowing everyone around loves Hitch Hikers Guide....
Now that's interesting re IT and HHG -
I did an OU study into s/ware development for 1.5yrs, and realised it wasn't for me -
1.5 episodes into HHG, I realised it wasn't for me
Dark Side of the Moon for me too, although not my favourite Floyd Album
Definatley Dark Side Of The Moon.
I'm sure it's still in the record books for being in the album charts continuosly for twentyten years.
I'm voting for The Dark Side of the Moon, as I haven't heard OK Computer, or Radiohead, for that matter.
I've missed a trick here...
I should have asked people to put their age down too - just to see whether that has an influence on which you prefer.
I bet it does
I bet people in their 30's would err to Radiohead, people older, Floyd.
I'll never know

Well with this listener, at least you are dead right. I'm a good bit past my 30's and DSOTM has been a favourite album since it was released. I still like Radiohead but in this poll at least there is only one winner for me.
its interesting because on a C4 poll a year or 2 back, OK Computer was voted the best ever album, with DSOTM at 5th
I assumed the demographic of the voters on that were around 25-35
Its a testament to DSOTM that many of my friends love an album that was brought ouy before they were born - well I was less than 1 when it came out.
I usually listen ot it on the bus home after a heavy session on the ale in Leeds - love it when the alarm bells go off on Time, everyone looks over cause they can hear them
Here is the poll
top 10 in order
RADIOHEAD - OK Computer
U2 - The Joshua Tree
NIRVANA - Nevermind
MICHAEL JACKSON - Thriller
PINK FLOYD - Dark Side of the Moon
OASIS - Definitely Maybe
THE BEATLES - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
MADONNA - Like a Prayer
GUNS N' ROSES - Appetite For Destruction
THE BEATLES - Revolver
Dark Side of the Moon for me too (And I'm in my mid 30's)
