From Murphski
As soon as Pink Floyd started making album after album about how difficult life is for a very successful and fortunate musician, their music was roughly equally as dull. It will be different if the music on this album brought the lyrics to life, but it doesn't. Except on the great Run like Hell and Another Brick in the Wall Part 2. Nothing else on this album even comes close to any of their albums up through Dark Side of the Moon. That album would have been great even if it didn't have any lyrics.

Marco da música progressiva e da banda. E ainda hoje, no Brasil, o conceito não foi compreendido.

There are only two 'concept' albums that really work, this one and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

From AMusetti
This is the Masterpiece of Pink Floyd, Surely. And a Masterpiece of Music of all times. It's perfect conceptually, musically, so hard to superate. The twenty´s century Masterpiece.
