The Runaway
3 stars Ummm.... no

Dark Side is always called the best, but is Dark Side really the best? The song opens with Speak to Me/Breathe, a medley I never really liked. Even if it features the amazing steel guitar playing of David Gilmour, I still would never really enjoy the track.

On the Run is a very nice song demonstrating Wright's (RIP) keyboard playing skills, I really like that song so it's a thumb up for me.

Time is actually the BEST track on this album. It features 2 minutes of proggy none-sense, only to be ensued by an amazing chord sequence, and a lot of nice guitar riffs. Time's solo is one of Gilmours most influential solos, at least to me.

Some songs like Us and Them and Eclipse feel like Floyd didn't have anything to put there, so they put those songs instead. The songs are not worthy of this "masterpiece", no matter how much I like or hate this album.

I give Dark Side a 3/5, not because I hate it, but because it's over-rated, and not everything on this album is good. I may get criticized, but this is just my opinion. Floyd will always be a great band.

The Runaway | 3/5 |
