As someone who only really started listening to them a few years ago I think Wish You Were Here is a better introduction, but Dark Side of the Moon is more classic Pink Floyd.

The Wall, Mother.

Incidentally, The album The Wall, is still considered to be one of the technically best produced albums ever made. Another is Famous Blue Raincoat by Jennifer Warnes, a collection of Leonard Cohen's songs.

DSOTM is the answer and the perfect pinnacle of the early Floyd becoming technically proficient in the studio.

The Wall, some believe, is Roger Waters biopic and his greatest work (I prefer "Amused to Death" for a Waters-credited work). It is clear that the rest of the band were not fully behind this project (with Rick Wright choosing to leave the band during this period) but as a work of some stature, The Wall cannot be ignored. It also contains the worlds greatest guitar solo on "Comfortably Numb", played by David Gilmour.

The Division Bell saw Rick Wright rejoin Gilmour and Nick Mason to produce an album without Roger Waters. This is the "modern" Floyd, and the sessions from which the current album, "The Endless River" originated. The title comes from the last line on the last song of Division Bell called "High Hopes", a song that contains some of the best pedal-steel guitar playing that you'll ever hear - powerful, yet melodic....and again, by Gilmour.

Listen in this order:

The Wall
Amused to Death - Roger Waters
Division Bell
On an Island - David Gilmour
Endless River

On a similar vein, Waters and Gilmour both have SUPERB dvd's of live shows that are well worth watching. Gilmour at the Royal Festival Hall is superb and Waters "In the Flesh Live" dvd is utterly fantastic.

Hope you can tell I'm a fan...
