4 stars Defiantly an excellent album but not quite the classic most people make it out to be. Speak to me opens with memorable lyrics before sending you into a dizzying cycle of spaciness in On the run. Don't relax because the alarm clocks on the track "Time" send you spiraling back to earth where some of the best vocals in floyd history await. For me the great gig in the sky was a let down and I found the female guest vocals offensive to my ear and quite annoying, which is where the album loses half a star. Fair enough..nine tracks..each track about a half star each. Money is a classic song once it gets going, not digging parts of it but overall, once you get to the guitar solo it is amazing. US and them seems like filler which is where the album is forced down to 4 star territory. It was simply a boring song for me. Though the climax at the end earns it some points. At this point the album closes with 3 very touching/psychotic (however you want to look at it) tracks and a perfect climax One of These Days, one of the best closing songs ever. I can see why many people would give this 4.5 or 4.75 or even 5 stars. I remain firm in my 4 star rating and even explained myself a little. Still, pick this album up folks!
