4 stars DSOTM was one of the first LP's I listened too.A friend of mine got it as a birthday present from his older brother and we listened to it over and over again. I always liked DSOTM, but it has never been one of my favourite Floyd records.Now, looking back I would say it was the first Floyd record where the production became more important than the music itself. The songs are nice, but the sound is too 'perfect'.I have some Boots of the Tour and IMHO the same songs are more interesting on these boots, with a rougher edge.Gilmour plays interesting solos, Wright plays more funky, the entire band is tighter.Alan Parsons did a great job on this record (BTW, DSOTM served in many shops as show-record for HiFI systems),but some of the spontaneity got lost on the way.
