3 stars Well, well, so this is one of the two PF albums friends 25 years ago told me were mandatory (the other was Dark Side...). What happened when I finally gave those records some ten spins each was that I came to respect the Floyd, but never loved their music. It is good music, but not more - and that means it's far from being moving, breathtaking, exceptional or overwhelming - IMHO. To put it even more hereticly: the combined 22 minutes of SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND to me are just running, dripping cheese. The same goes for the title track. The only song I can enjoy without reservation is HAVE A CIGAR (musically and lyrically). So, in a superficial way it's a nice record, easy to listen to, lacking depth - and that's the whole secret. It didn't stand the test of time for me - Animals, the follow-up, did. 3 stars.
