4 stars Pink Floyd on the dark side?

A great effort, yes indeed! Skillfull because it is open for both directions, moving on the border between Space/Psychedelic and Mainstream Rock with great safety. So PINK FLOYD manages to get many people closer to the Progressive Rock genre (and not only with this release). This must be credited to Gilmour, Waters and Co by all means.

Breathe in the Air, Time and Any Colour You Like are in a wellknown PF mood with psychedelic ingredients of former times. Money for example has a strong hit character and mainstream rock fans also can enjoy this one very much. The Great Gig in the Sky is my prefered song because it contains incredible female vocals combined with excellent piano/keyboard playing by Richard Wright.

This might be the most successful album of PINK FLOYD - not my favourite, but an excellent addition anyway.

Rivertree | 4/5 |
