5 stars It is impossible not to give this album 5 stars. It started a revolution in music, and it is also impressive on its own.

1. Speak to me : I never understood why this is included, but oh well.

2. Breathe : 9.5/10 : It is short, but so beautiful and warm that you can't help but love it.

3. On the run : 7.5/10 : Might have been better on the past for its originality, but now, I've heard better instrumentals like this one by Vangelis. It still is a very fast electronic piece that sounds exactly what the title says.

4. Time / Breathe 9.5/10 one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs. The introduction with its electric percussions show Nick's best performance. The rest is also impressive, with female backup singers, a mesmerizing guitar solo, top notch instrumentation, and some of the best lyrics I ever heard in a song. The 'Breathe' theme is reprised later in the song and sounds great. My only problem with it are the clock sound effects that kills any flow the album had and is disturbing to my ears.

5. The great gig in the sky 10/10 : Can you actually find criticism of this song? It is a perfect short piece showcasing a great female vocalist with a perfect piano counterpoint.

6. Money 8.5/10 : The song is very solid, with its catchy bass line, great saxophone, great lyrics about greed, and a amazing guitar solos.

7. Us and them 10/10 : Another perfect song, much mellower and longer than the rest. The echoey Vocal style is very unique, and as always, the band creates great instrumentation making this song a gem. The song ends with one of the best keyboard solos of Wright. 8. Any colour you like 10/10 : Well, its basically the band showcasing their talents without sacrificing melody nor sounding pretentious. 9. Brain damage/Eclipse 10/10 : Containing beautiful Chord Progressions and vocals, this song is also a highlight in the album. Eclipse is the ending of it which sounds majestic.

Go and Get it, so that you can realize that commercial prog can also be good! This is not mainstream! (except for maybe 'money')

My Grade : A+

Zitro | 5/5 |
