4 stars 4.0 (Fully on MUSIC, not commercial impact.)

This album is a hard one to review, as it is such a mixed bag. Generally, the music is not progressive and can be boring (yes, BORING). A real prog rock album would never receive the acclaim from so many music ‘hearers’ as this did. Although some brilliant atmospheres are created, the most part of the album is 70’s rock. The lyrics are annoying, and I can’t help but pull a sarcastic face when listening. Floyd are musicians, not poets! Their attempts are feeble and the persistent melancholy is futile, the majority of British society doesn’t care whether money is evil and, yes, everyone dies one day. Get over it.

Tracks one, three and seven are brilliant, and the others are good. This is an excellent addition to your collection, whether it is truly prog or not.
