5 stars This album is so well known that I won't even try to review it track by track. People who know it will have their own opinions, those who haven't heard it should beg, steal or borrow it and find out what all the fuss was about. For its age, it is still remarkably fresh sounding, not dating, for instance, in comparison to Crimson's early music. The remaster is well worth having and is one of the few cds I would say should be in every prog fan's collection. Easily one of the best three Floyd albums, along with Meddle and The Wall, it flows effortlessly from start to finish, with exceptional, pyschedelic melodies, and interesting if, at times, off the wall lyrics. Gilmour in particular shines here, but the whole band play as one solid unit. This was the last album they did before dissention set in, and it shows. They are actually enjoying themselves here! No stand out tracks for me, as they are all of a high class, although I have always had a soft spot for 'Any Colour You Like'. One of the yardsticks of the genre, and deservedly so. I still don't know if it is my favourite by them though! That one is a hard choice!
