5 stars This is the quintessential progressive rock/acid rock album. Smooth music, great story, easy to listen to in one sitting. No filler on this baby. From the opening heartbeat to the final heartbeat, this album is set to sear into your very soul. Time is the song that questions our existence here on Earth, starting off with a number of chimes going off everywhere, alerting everybody that they have run out of time and it's time to move along. Next side one closes with the divine Clare Torrey who absolutely blows away The Great Gig in the Sky with her scat vocals (done in a first take, where she appologizes for not getting it right!).

Side two opens with one of the most recognizable bass riffs of all time in Money. Money blasts through the speakers and gets everyone tapping their toes in time the the theatrical registers anxious to grab our cash, then cruises through a medley of songs that most other bands would kill for, ending in Brain Damage, followed by Eclipse, and ending with the same heartbeat that began the album. Absolutely essential to anyone with anykind of taste in prog.
