3 stars The album was bought used on vinyl and is the basis of this review.

As an album the effects recorded are what I would expect of island or English lineaged group trying to distance into the mainland. The whole illusion and disappearance-- a fade is all that will ever become in any distance. It is a competitively titled album--with that said the songs are a reflection into the reflective as the album shows the colours arrayed from the prism.

The songs as mentioned do not stand out--the recording professionals are the musicians. The vinyl recordings were lacking the transparency of their effects in any of the tracks. The time period is when these effects where so interesting the musicians even today place them on tracks and found on techno/electronica albums.

Pink Floyd as progressive is not a mainland distance---their efforts outdo the work. I would not consider this group as any common ground in progressive but decided to emerge in their later albums as a decision in consequence. The commercial success of this album will outdo any group in the progressive genre since the focus shifts to a performance or an atmosphere rather than the recorder to musician reflection on the reflective-- recording time stamped effects on tracks as a loss of focus.

The groups in England will fall into reference in this lack of focus and is not a betterment to the mainland. The common sense is a simple return not a physics wave on a track--it is not a replaceable distance or else an attempt would not have been recorded.

Pink Floyd has emerged as a commercial success and there is nothing progressive to a commercial album such as Dark side of the moon. Pink Floyd would have liked to stay progressive and have decided themselves as a group to send out to a very large commercial audience--the world.

The album is good-- Transitions are thought out carefully from track to track and the lack of complexity from these transitions is competitive. The commercial popularity is not a progressive distance along with the decision to release the album to a very large commercial audience. Today there are better albums than this recorded with focus--yet the groups are returned to the unfocused Pink Floyd--non-essential.
