5 stars I really do not understand why this album has a rating lower than "Wish You Were Here" here in site.I obvious that "Dark Side of the Moon" is better! Just listen to his nine songs to find out why he sold 50 ese million copies and became the third biggest selling album in history!

1-Speak to Me / Breathe (10/10)-an introduction perfect.Her begins in total silence, until the various sounds begin to appear (and that will be used many times in the album), and which reaches its climax with a voice female drama that gives rise to "Breathe," a memorable track, but simple.

2-On the Run (10/10), the strangest of all the music of Pink Floyd I've ever listen.Are 3 minutes of weird sounds (airplanes, stuff like that) but I can not imagine the album without this song .

3-Time (10/10)-this is my favorite song out of all of its band.Since clock ringing violently, until its end, a reprise of "Breathe" as well as more fantastic guitar solo of my life by the wonderful voices, everything is perfect in this song.

4-The Great Gig in th sky (10/10)-on "Time", we have the best guitar solo of the world, here we have the best vocals of all tempos.Claire Torry offers a drama like never before, and which definitely contributes to the music.

5-Money (10/10), after the gloom of the previous track, we have "Money", the band more "acid" Pink Floyd.Your ironic comments, his unforgettable opening-anyone can associate the sound of a cash register with this song, his guitar solo and sax-powerful music make this one of the most "basic".

6-Us and Them (10/10)-a track very sad, calm and slow, but terribly beautiful.The focus here is the sax again, it transmits an indescribable beauty.

7-Any Colour You Like (10/10)-an instrumental track fairly simple, but it has two sections exelentes-first, a keyboard solo followed by a guitar solo.

8-Brain damage (10/10)-another fairly simple track, but what's interesting are the laughs in the background of music, which seem to have been recorded by a drug addict!

9-Eclipse (10/10)-the last track ends the album in a big way, mixing again the vocals of the band with the wonderful female choir, giving an air of this epic song, which ends with the same heart that beats start the album, giving it a cyclical concept.

Average-10 (with honors)

5 stars for sure!
