5 stars I KNOW. I KNOW. I KNOW.... YET ANOTHER REVIEW OF THIS RECORD. Yet, in my own mind and conscience, I simply could not consider myself a true fan of progressive rock without having this record and then formulating my opinion on it. I would in my own conscience be doing potential progressive music fans a disservice keeping my opinions on this matter to myself. Apparently, though, given the number of reviews, that's the way it should be .... GET THE WORD OUT THERE, MAN! THERE SHOULD BE A MILLION REVIEWS OF THIS RECORD. OR A BILLION. OR A GOOGOLPLEX. Conceptually brilliant from beginning to end, finely polished and glistening, this Pink Floyd gem features brilliant guitar work and great singing by David Gilmour and some of Richard Wright's finest moments at the piano/organ/synthesizer. It is chock full of superbly written lyrics by Roger Waters and the music is cohesive throughout. Clare Torry's vocal on Great Gig in the Sky is one of the most heartwrenching moments in music. Parry's saxophone on Money is superb. Nick Mason's colorful percussion work on Time is his moment of glory. If the human race still exists in 200, 500, 1000 years and if music history is preserved, it will be THIS record and a handful of others that will be the representative voice of music in our time.
