Once this song kicks off, I feel like I've gone to another planet. So atmospheric.
My favorite Pink Floyd song. Wonderful example of mellow, psychedelic rock.
The lyrics and vocals are super annoying, but the melody is ok. It's pretty short too, which is good.
Sets the tone for the whole record. Amazing song.
This and Time are my favorites of the record.
After "Speak To Me", we get a seamless transition into "Breathe", the first true song on the album. We hear some of the vocals from "The Great Gig In The Sky" for a few seconds, which cut out right as the real song starts. The light percussion and the smooth bass line, with bits of electric guitar in the background. The production on this track is amazing. This track and most of the songs off of TDSOTM give off a feeling of floating through space that only Pink Floyd is capable of creating. The lyrics - written & sung by David Gilmour - are a beautiful description of life ("Breathe, breathe in the air / Don't be afraid to care"). Gilmour is basically telling you that you should enjoy your life in a way that makes you happy. But be careful, or else you might suffer an early grave. "Breathe (In The Air)" is a fantastic opening track that introduces the listener to what TDSOTM will be like.
Perfectly set up from "Speak to Me", and transitions seamlessly into "On the Run". Truly a beautiful piece of music!
Well if this isn't the most surreal and fantastic way to open an album, I don't know what is.
There may not be any vocals for a while in this track so the instruments had to be on key. I felt quite relaxed at the start and so there was no danger of that!
The lyrics seemed to be on the lines of 'Try your best to be the person you want to be, but don't forget to breathe!
Brilliant track :)
