4 stars For a long time I considered the famous maintrack of 25 minutes by Pink Floyd one of the best if not the best prog composition ever. Of course it is but unfortunately I always had a sort of dislike for the vocal aspect of the song. I don't like the chorus, the rest of the masterpiece is of course absolutely terrific but it's the reason the song will never be my absolute number one. The title track that is considered a supersong by many is not one of my favourites. I think it's a bit dull, nothing special. Welcome to the machine is much more to my liking. A special song that really gives you a machine feeling thanks to the beginning. But my very pearl of this album is Have a cigar. This song is still regularly to be heard on dutch radio and when I hear the start of it I enthusiastically long for the final 2 minutes of the song, one of the best guitar solos ever by mr. Gilmour. Brilliant !!

All in all of course a great classic this album but I have to give it 4*
