Prog Reviewer
5 stars For those who know a little bit of history, those will know that this album has changed completely the world music panorama. This album has put progressive rock music and experimentation where they never would be again - it has made people to love and respect progressive music. And for almost 10 years progressive music was at every people's mouthes, this album marked deffinitely the beginning of a new era.

What Pink Floyd did, particularly producer Alan Parsons, was transforming the band's experimental ideas in the form of superbly produced sofisticated songs. In fact, the album is so well produced that is astounding, almost unbelievable, to know it was edited in 1973 (!). The album shows so many variations, from all sorts of atmospheric sounds to gospel overblown singing, blended in a very delicate and high sensible way, creating a magnanimous piece of art - a true movie for the ears - with its several different pieces. Pink Floyd surely have moved towards pop, in the sense they put a fantastic effort in a way people would not find difficult to accept it. But in no way this is pop music. It influenced and still influences hundreds of bands, one of the most influentional albuns of all times!

Every progressive rock fan should have this in his/her collection. A classic.
