5 stars Gotta do it, man. This is one of the greatest albums of all time. This is Floyd in their prime, not as good as Dark Side of the Moon but still excellent. David Gilmour is one of the greatest guitarists ever, his playing is just so epic and melodic and tasteful. The flourish on Shine On You Crazy Diamond Pt. 1 is one of the most epic guitar parts of all time. Welcome to the Machine is one of my favorite songs by the band; it's so Floyd it's not even funny. Have a Cigar; same. The synth riff is classic, and Gilmour's playing; super epic. The title track is simply one of the greatest laments of all time, I still get goosebumps listening to it. Pt. 2 of Shine On might be even better than Pt. 1, they get into this funky jam with spacey synths and it's just epic beyond all epicness. Anyway, if you honestly don't have the album and you're on this website... well WTF; get it!
