Prog Reviewer
5 stars In my review on DSotM I stated that I consider myself a Pink Floyd fan at least for a part of their history. Best albums to me are Wish you were here and Animals and I rated Wywh 4 stars although it was actually rounded down from 4.5. So if I really am (a bit of) a fan I should at least give one of their albums 5 stars I feel. So that's going to be this one. Animals is my true favourite anyway so I'm ok with that.

Why is it my favourite ? I like the compositions extremely much. This is real symphonic prog to me, at it's best probably. The three large tracks (because the other two are just poor short ones) are the real album to me. Very varied songs, good vocal parts alternated with great instrumental fragments and the songs really progress smoothly. I have listened to them almost a hundred times now in all those (25) years but I can't get enough of them.

All 3 tracks are 5 star-efforts in my book so the album is easily rewarded in the same way.

progrules | 5/5 |
