2 stars I am one of the lonely guys in this universe who don't like Dark side of the moon. For its almost horrible slowness, the boring songs and the lean-back musicianship. Was Pink Floyd getting lazy? I still don't understand why this album became such a succes. There are a few beautiful songs on side 2, such as 'Us and them'. This gives a small reason for someone to listen to this album.

Some of the other songs are songs you just can't get away with, as a progband. This isn't much of a progalbum anyway. No real progressive songs were written for this record. Pink Floyd made a lot of album that are better then this one. Piper at the gates of dawn, Atom Heart mother, Meddle, Animals and my favorite Live at Pompeii. Just a few years later, after this tremendous gig Pink Floyd must have had some slow period.

This album just doesn't deserve its reputation, two stars. It should be for the real fans, but not for all the progfans with a wide variety of music.
