No, not really. Some streaming clients will play gaplessly when playing lossless files, and others won't, giving anything from a slight click to a yawningly obvious gap between tracks.
It's a particular bugbear of mine with my Gramophone hat (which by the way is a rather stylish fedora) on, but some dismiss the lack of gapless playback as only affecting a very small number of listeners, such as listeners to operas and the like.
In fact, the problem is more widespread, as your problem with Pink Floyd demonstrates, and also affects those listening to dance mix discs and the like.
There's no dirty fix available, short of actually combining all the tracks into a single lump of music, which is a pain; fortunately more streaming clients are now becoming available able to do gapless, but the process has taken its time.

Bit late in the day but I was going to say just do a Windows search for the flac files in that folder, sort the results by date and delete the most recent, which will have been the dupes.
