5 stars The heart beats louder and louder not only at the beginning of Speak to me. Even when I was a small child I was fascinated by the cover art and I knew this vinyl was something unique. Years and years later my brother told me to listen to some songs from Dark side and these were the first songs from Pink Floyd I've ever heard.

So I'll start from the end. The absolutely first song I've ever known from PF is Brain Damage/Eclipse. And It's still my favorite. The lunatic is on the grass...Just a glory for Syd Barrett's madness. Beautiful lyrics that claim some time to understand. " And if the dam braks open many years too soon..." I could not count how many times i wrote it on the shcool desk. As the song turns into its second part, Eclipse,listening to the sound of keybords I see a vision of a little city on a small planet polluted by industry and chemistry. I see the tiny people confused, but happy when the sunshine gets through the clouds. They are happy and they gather aunder their Sun to see the magnificent phenomena of solar eclipse.

Speak to me/ Breathe is a song with typical PF sound, lyrics and atmosphere.

On the Run-there's nothing special for me about this song, but I like it as a part of the masterpiece album

Time...not a song to listen in depression. Makes people think about sad things. But of course very great piece. But I really hate the loudness of clocks ringing in the beginning.

The Great Gig in the Sky- cosmic song, great vocals, it's pleasure for ears.

Money- the second song I've heard from PF. Great, but not fitting to the rest of album in my opinion.

Us and Them- beautiful, favorite by lots of people, but for me quite easy lyrics.

Any Colour You Like- another very good instrumental. And i love its transition to BD/E

No PF album over this! 5/5

Glucose | 5/5 |
