Time is one of the most compelling, powerful and well made songs ever. Fuses its deep and thoughtful lyrics with truly astounding guitar work and wonderful structure.

Adorned with extra details like the backing choirs, the wondrously gentle reprise of Breathe at its ending and just enough echo to give it some extra grandeur. It's a symphony within itself, and perhaps the definitive Pink Floyd song.

And that's before we even begin getting in to how it makes you feel. Because like all the greatest rock songs, it's goosebump inducing and it just begs to be blasted out of the loudest sound system you can find.

Maybe trite, but this is truly a "timeless" masterpiece of true genius. Guitar solo utterly brilliant--some of the very early versions (live versions of 1972) when they were still putting the song together contain some even heavier solos which are also great. Whole song, structure and lyrics all fit together like an expensive Swiss watch.

"Time" by Pink Floyd... I don't really think that I have to say more, but I will anyway. "Time" begins with the sound of several clocks ringing and ticking and chiming. After that stops we get a two minute intro with roto-tom drums and loud, echoing guitars. After a long build-up, the instrumental suddenly changes into a more "Breathe (In The Air)" type of production. The loud, booming guitars become softer and more technical and the track slightly speeds up. David Gilmour starts singing with vocals that are much more forceful than the ones on "Breathe (In The Air)". The production on this track is perfect. Every instrument (this includes David Gilmour's vocals) has a slight echo, giving the song a feeling of importance and grandness. Whenever Wright is singing, he's back up by a choir. The lyrics of this song are some of the best that the band has ever written ("Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day / You fritter & waste the hours in an offhand way"). This is a song about how people tend to waste their limited time on Earth by not contributing to society or doing anything that actually affects the world in a positive way. This is best expressed in the second verse when Richard Wright sings the lines "Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time / Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines". How have I gone this long without mentioning the guitar solo. In my personal opinion, this is the greatest solo that Gilmour has ever played (Yes, even better than the solo in "Comfortably Numb"). The echo effect is far more apparent here, and it makes the guitar sound absolutely massive. During the last third of the solo, the same choir that you hear when Wright is singing comes back, and it just adds even more epicness to the solo. This solo is psychedelic rock perfection. This combined with the powerful message of the lyrics is what makes "Time" one of, if not my favorite song ever.
