This is getting difficult, despite being the only album from 70-77 with weak songs, the remaning 7 tracks are probably all in my top 30. My notes said to vote off Burning Bridges this round but I must have been delirious when I made those. Free Four is fun and I've always taken the solo for granted, but I don't mind dropping it here, and Mudmen is great but Burning Bridges is better so those are my picks. Sorry.

I still hate "The Gold It's In The", and "Childhood's End" just has some weak ass lyrics.

I've always loved both. Childhood's End was a test run for Time, but musically I think it's really strong (apart from the pointless 30 seconds of silence intro). Gold is just fun pop. Floyd didn't tackle that often and I think that's why most people don't like it; it's just out of the ordinary for them. Not that they're exceptionally good at it - but for a stab at something they don't normally do, I like it.

That's basically why I hate "Gold". It's just generic fluff on an album of otherwise pretty decent "Floydian" tracks. I even like "Absolutely Curtains" more just because it feels right on the album.

I will protect Mudmen and Burning Bridges even if it's the last thing I do while alive.

For this one, I voted for "The Gold It's in the..." and "Childhoods End". It pains me, because I think these were David's major contributions to the album. I find both of these songs quite cheesy and not memorable.

Other than these two songs, I really don't know what I'll be voting on. This album is difficult as hell.

Those are the same two tracks I voted for. But I agree; after this, it's going to get pretty tricky.
