Division Bell doesn't count really count as PF, since Roger Waters wasn't there.

 
I totally agree with taking the OP to task for listing Division Bell as PF's only good work.
 
That said, Roger Waters isn't/wasn't required for an album to count as PF.  In fact The Final Cut which had all members, until Roger summarily fired Rick Wright mid-session, was ALL Roger.  A solo album with Nick and David as backing musicians.   Roger chose to leave PF whether he realized it at the time or not and the band, with him leading it through that slog of an album, was much further from PF than they were before or since. 
 
They were sooo much better off with out him and proved it with Momentary Lapse of Reason and Division Bell, both excellent PF albums.  The tours were great too.

During the recording of Wish You Were Here in 1975, the band were in the process of completing the final mix of Shine On You Crazy Diamond when an overweight man with shaven head and eyebrows, and holding a plastic bag, entered the room. All soon realized that it was Syd Barrett. Mason recalled Barrett's conversation as "desultory and not entirely sensible.  He sat round and talked for a bit but he wasn't really there.” Asked how he had managed to gain so much weight, Barrett said he had a large refrigerator in his kitchen, and that he had been eating lots of pork chops. None of the band members saw him from that day until his death in 2006.

Third best selling album ever was Dark Side of the Moon.  They would have really sold if it had been listenable!  So many bewildering comments on RP.

Almost indistinguishable / easily crossed with the Moody Blues. Perhaps they were drinking from the same LSD fountain.

Plus, Norman "Hurricane" Smith, who was an engineer on the early Beatles' albums, and produced The Pretty Things, also had a bizarre, Top 40 hit with "Oh Babe, What Would You Say".

 
Interesting stuff.  Thanks Proclivities.

1967s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn was actually their debut. Syd had already left the band before this one came out in '68. RIP Syd

The album that introduced me to Pink Floyd back in '68-69. Put the head phones on, sit in the vibrating recliner, smoke a dubee and trip out!!

Yes, 100% agree, especially for such experimental stuff like in this
album or also Ummagumma.
