5 stars I think that the most appropriate word for this album is "perfection". Yet Pink Floyd had already reached it with "Dark side of the moon" and "Atom Heart Mother"! The Gilmour guitar game reflects his sonic exploration and is very atmospheric. Waters' lyrics give emotion and clearly express the absence of Syd Barrett. Wright's mastery of the synthetiseur gives the whole guideline to "Welcome to the machine" and to the rest. Mason's drumming fits well in the compositions. Great introduction, robotic sound effects, a very good saxophonist, Roy Harper on vocals on "Have a cigar", backing vocals by two american singers are other features of this masterpiece of progressive music. If Pink Floyd has definitely stopped composing music, I would like to finish by saying : "Shine on you Pink Floyd" for all your contributions to rock and prog!
