5 stars IMO, this is the last "real" album by the Pink Floyd`s quartet of Gilmour, Mason, Waters and Wright. It is their last album which has songwriting credits for the 4 members. IMO, again, it was Pink Floyd`s peak. With all lyrics written by Roger Waters with a concept: "the tensions caused by everyday life in human beings and the ways people try to live it". In this album, the years later underrated Rick Wright shines with his keyboards and also in the songwriting credits. David Gilmour sings almost all the lead vocals (with the exception of "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" which were sung by Roger Waters, and two verses of "Time" which were sung by Rick Wright, plus the vocals of Clare Torry for "The Great Gig of the Sky").Waters had the idea to interview some people and to include their answers in this album, so there are some voices and laughing in the background. The lyrics are very good, maybe the best lyrics that Waters wrote for the band. Nick Mason plays the drums very good. David Gilmour sounds inspired with his guitars and his vocals. The recording of this album is very good too, done by Alan Parsons.Every song in this album is very good, but my favourite are: "Breathe", "Time", "Money" and "Us and Them". I have two versions of this album: the old L.P., and the "20th Anniversary Edtion" CD from 1993. The CD version is very good. This album is the best example of Pink Floyd AS A BAND, with every member giving their best to an album with an unified vision. This album also is one of their most accessible albums.
