3 stars Despite this being arguably the most revered prog album of all time, I find that I rarely listen to it. I do listen to other Floyd albums like Animals, WYWH, and Meddle, with regularity. The only thing I can think is that it embodies two extremes: very accessible and much less so. There is no in between. Money and Time are very conventional (although the guitar solo in Money is one of the best ever), but also very overplayed. The balance of the album is very atmosheric and rather interesting, but just not complelling. It may have been very unique at the time, but this is not enough to get me to listen regularly. As a result, I just don't view this in the same league with some other Floyd albums.
