4 stars So many people reviewed this album here so I will keep my statement short.

I daresay this record was the last time PF could really do what they wanted to without having an eye on the public demand - although Animals seems to have been a fruitless effort of tearing at the chains (by fruitless I mean the general dislike for Animals by the non-prog community). The mostly banal tunes of Wish you were here were clearly aimed at the public taste - successfully, no one can deny that. I have the distinct feeling that Dark Side... is a much more honest record. The production is great as well as the whole concept. Concerning the music - there are a few fillers but they fit in the concept and suit well the more important songs (TIME; GREAT GIG IN THE SKY; MONEY; US AND THEM). So I'm much more on friendly terms with this record than with WYWH - do you know why? You have fillers here - but no cheese. And that's all important, at least to me. A very good record - not overwhelmingly good, though - with four well-earned stars.
