Gilmour has the best voice, truly magnificent timbre despite a somewhat limited range. Waters is a pretty underrated vocalist though -he had a weak teqnique perhaps, but with lots of incredibly powerful performances under his belt (especially around 1979-1984). Plus he pushed and experimented with his voice more than Gilmour ever attempted to -those high whistle screams from "Eugene" are incredible, and so are some of his powerful fifth octave belts. Plus, really cool lows for a tenor. And Wright had a lovely voice too!

roger waters is kinda hit or miss to me. he's got the best range no doubt but too much saliva it's kinda gross...and yeah David Gilmour has a pretty average HB range in total but I guess you know its how you use your range rather than what what notes you can and can't hit. i'd say I like him the best. Rick doesn't really demonstrate his range much but that doesn't matter he's got a great timbre. I find many of my favourite PF songs such as "Julia Dream", "Summer '68", "Let There Be More Light", "Paintbox" etc are the ones sung by Rick. So I'd put him second. Syd Barrett has real nice sounding lows and an interesting vocal style so third.

Y'all emphasize range WAY too much. Just saying.

Gilmour without a question to me. His voice just sounds the best, imo.

Gilmour, definitely.
He is probably one of my absolute favorite singers.
I also like Waters' softer singing and Wright's voice too. Wright has such a nice, relaxing voice. Smile

Gilmour by a long shot. One of my favorite timbres of any singer, actually.

By the way, Mason also sings on "Corporal Clegg".

I gotta say Syd Barrett, I am sorry. I know he kinda fucked his voice over with poor technique or whatever he did to it in the early seventies but he still managed to sound pretty good on most of his solo stuff. His voice was best with Pink Floyd and I think his bright, whimsical, very english low tenor singing is really spectacular. He has a great and powerful voice and his accent works very well with the psychedelic music they produced. I especially love his singing on "Here I go" and "Arnold Layne." Gilmour is my second favorite because he has a really beautiful light timbre but he lacks that true English grit that I love about Syd'd voice. Also Syd has a powerful high end and David's high notes can get a bit screamy.

I'd actually say David's high notes sound on average much more refined and quiet that Syd's...

I don't know, I think Pink Floyd era Syd Barretts high notes sound pretty great. Listen the high notes from say, Arnold Layne or Apples and Oranges and compare them to like Dogs of War. I say they both get kinda screamy really. But Syd's voice (to me) retains a less strained sound. This is just my opinion. I am a Syd Barrett fan to the max though.

He really does have quite a charming sound.

Dave's voice was incredible, but roger was a real unorthodox vocalist. Very very underrated as a singer, he is incredible to watch live. Its hard to pick anyone in PF to be my favorite, but if I had to choose, it would always be Waters.

For me it was a tough choice between David and Roger. Roger is a low tenor with some solid lows in studio performances, which he didn't comfortably hit in the live ones. Still, he has some amazing performances live, my favourites are Pigs on the Wing (amazing jumps from G2 to B3) and Another Brick in the Wall (all parts). 
I voted for Gilmour, though. I love his timbre and, even though many people call him a high baritone, for me he is more like SB, so hitting these chesty A4's in Dogs and B4's in Welcome to the Machine is quite admirable.
Barett was a good singer, but I would never compare him with the others.

I'd say that he is more of a singer who practiced hard to sing how he wanted to more than he is a mid baritone, high baritone, low baritone or what have you.

I feel like Roger sang out of his range a bit too much.. It didn't sound easy for him to be singing Sheep. The power chording at the end is so good though..

I don't remember who I voted for, but I like Rick and Syd's voices. I really like David's performance on Dogs but I probably like the other two more.

I say they were all great singers! Waters is great, Gilmour is great, Wright is great, Barrett great too, and Mason probably great.
