I'm surprised by the number of "over-rated" comments. This album is their best. Overplayed? Not compared to The Wall. Dark Side didn't stay on the charts from 1973-1988 because it was over-rated. It is all about life, superbly done.

Quite honestly, this album is incredibly overrated. Most of the songs are nothing special or revolutionary, just some very good composition and arrangements. Even when in the context of Pink Floyd's discography Animals is a far superior album, with long, complex compositions and is much more interesting in general. Overall, I think this album is good. Is it the third greatest of all time or anywhere near that though? Most definitely not.

Extremely overrated album in my opinion. I personally find The Wall to be a better album overall. This album is slightly creepy and is basically the mind of an insane person. Still, you cannot deny the album had a huge impact on music and none of the songs are bad by any means.

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:15
With its technological mastery and its conventional wisdom once-removed, this is a kitsch masterpiece--taken too seriously by definition, but not without charm. It may sell on sheer aural sensationalism, but the studio effects do transmute David Gilmour's guitar solos into something more than they were when he played them. Its taped speech fragments may be old hat, but for once they cohere musically. And if its pessimism is received, that doesn't make the ideas untrue--there are even times, especially when Dick Parry's saxophone undercuts the electronic pomp, when this record brings its cliches to life, which is what pop is supposed to do, even the kind with delusions of grandeur.

85/100 = B
