5 stars Not so progressive as Wish you were here, or the Genesis or Yes albums at the same years, but excellent. No weak points in this one. Maybe the best Pink Floyd album ever. I think the main reason is that all the muscicians were involved on most of the tracks, and by this way Pink Floyd shows its best. The music shows that when Gilmour and Wright take their composer roles, they give a solid sustent to the Pink Floyd music, and of course with Waters designing the overall concept. The highlights for me are:

Time: Maybe one of the two or three best tracks on the Pink Floyd history. Strong and original intro with a great drum job of Mason. Vocals shared by Gilmour and Wright (Verse and Chorus), fits perfect between them, both two shine with their voices. But the best of this song is the Gilmour guitar solo. Just superb. Aggressive but melodic, moved and quiet.

Brain Damage/Eclipse: The best song composed by Waters on his own for Pink Floyd. The Keyboard and drum work is fantastic and carry you to a climax into the Eclipse section. The Waters voice is clean and great. The overall song gives a feel of a quiet madness and transports you to the "dark side of the moon".

Us and Them: The Wright one. The track represents by and accurate way the Rick's style. A simple but great melody over a piano base, a sax intro and a strong chorus, with another sax interlude. All in all with a great lyrics by Waters.

Great gig in the sky: An unique piece of art in the rock music. From a Wright concept, and a climatic keyboard intro, the track gets into a whirl of female voices. The concept of the track is really great because it has a real feel of a gig in the sky.

The rest are very good tracks that`s complete the overall masterpiece.
