3 stars I will try to show every respect to this all time masterpiece by Pink Floyd but I will warn in advance. This is not my thing despite the fact that I'm a Pink Floyd fan but only concerning a few albums and certainly not early PF. I believe this is the last convulsion of early PF, that is for a (big) part of the album. It was replaced by a much more melodic Pink Floyd and that's the Floyd I love. This is shown in the famous tracks Time and Money. These tracks contain mr. Gilmour at his best doing brilliant guitar passages. Special thing about Money by the way is that I heard this song far over a hundred times by now and it still makes me go into raptures. That is a tremendous compliment for the song because I can easily get fed up with songs when I hear them too often. But not Money and same goes for Time, a less popular track played not that often on the radio but that doesn't bother me. The guitar solo is more extended on this track, slower too but almost as fantastic as the three on Money. Another nice song is Us and them, also slow but really beautiful.

Then there's the other side of the album and really I don't know what people see in that. That's a clear case of taste I think because there are obviously a lot of people loving the spacy short tracks at least as much, if not more. Good luck to them but I don't like it at all and I am glad Pink Floyd decided to head in another direction (Wish you were here, Animals).

So how about the final rating. I think I can say Money and Time save Pink Floyd from two stars but since the spacy side of the album is dominant to me I can only give three stars.
