5 stars This must be one of the highest rated albums of all times. Not without reason, the song writing, the sound, the creative energy and enthusiasm of the band are of an exceptionally high standard throughout.

It's one of the few Floyd albums where everybody was looking in the same direction and giving their very best performance. Breathe, Time and Money are all striking compositions, but especially the second half of the album (from the guitar solo in Money onwards) is of an unmatched beauty in rock music. Gilmour and Wright prove themselves to be the most effective pair of musicians here. Their interplay, feel for timing and balance are simply outstanding.

I don't play this album as often as Meddle and Animals, which I would list as my personal favourites, but it's hard to find any argument against this being Floyd's most accomplished album ever and even one of the best examples of progressive rock for newcomers.
