The Who or Pink Floyd

Two bands I love hearing PJ cover during their shows are Pink Floyd and The Who.  Both bands I believe had huge influences on their music.  If you had a choice to listen to Pearl Jam do a live show cover of one of these two albums, which would you rather hear?  These are my favorites albums of each Pink Floyd and The Who and I love PJ’s covers of Love Reign O’er Me and Comfortably Numb,

    Quadrophenia - it is the pinnacle work of The Who

    His eminence has yet to show.

    I've seen them cover "The Real Me" and Ed do "I'm One" with Pete Townsend, both performances were awesome.  There would probably be more sentimental value in covering the The Who, given how big of an influence they are on the band.

    @Who PrincessI don't think there's much doubt on which way you would have voted!

    Both are awesome albums but I think PJ's style fits Quadrophenia much better.

    I'm not sure if anyone's interested, but I compiled a concept album by making a playlist of PJ songs.

    Quadrophenia is the obvious answer and was extremely influential in EV's life, according to his interviews and they cover The  Who really well. Ed's performance of 'I'm One' is one of my favorite cover performances to watch. 

    That's why I picked The Wall - it would be interesting  to see them cover an entire Pink Floyd album, and one that has such an important place in popular culture - when PF performed the album as the Berlin Wall was being dissembled. Goes along with the political strain of the band. 

    Neither choice is bad though.

    I agree Quadrophenia is probably the more logical choice, given what you said @njnancy.  I just love their cover of Comfortably Numb so much that it makes me want to hear them cover more off of The Wall.  They've tagged "Another Brick in the Wall" several times at the end of "Daughter," but i don't believe they've done much more than that off of The Wall.  I can hear them covering "Hey You" in the back of my mind and would love to hear that sometime.  If it's out there, can anyone share it with me?

    Hearing Eddie sing Young Lust would be the best. Plus Eddie giving the trail during The Wall would be amazing
