There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

This album is the first part of Pink Floyd’s Holy Trinity. The other two parts are Wish You Were Here (1975) and The Wall (1979). There is plenty of great stuff in Atom Heart Mother (1970) and Animals (1977), or even in late post-Watersian universes like A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994). But none of these, so far as I’m concerned, is on the same level as the members of the Trinity.

Much as the whole may be greater than the parts (as usual there are no pauses between the tracks and this is supposed to be a “concept album”), three masterpieces stand high above the rest. They happen to be the three longest tracks. “Time” is the greatest of them and one of the immortal rock anthems of the 1970s. Gilmour’s solo never fails to send me into something like ecstasy. The same may be said of Dick Parry’s work in “Us and Them”. “Money” benefits from a fine attempt of Dick and David to outplay each other. All this is not to say that the vocal lines – trenchant in “Money” and “Time”, lyrical and soaring in “Us and Them” – or the lyrics leave anything to be desired. The latter can be deceptively simple:

Up and Down
And in the end it’s only round and round and round

There it is. The history of human civilisation in a dozen words or so. If you want the general history of individual human life, take a look at the text of “Time”:

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I’d something more to say.

The rest are fillers. “Brain Damage” is the finest of them, including the striking line quoted in the beginning of this review, the album’s title and highly emotive vocals. The others are mostly instrumentals, some wacky for the sake of wackiness (“On the Run”), some gorgeous and stirring (“Any Colour You Like”). To my mind, “The Great Gig in the Sky” would have been even greater without Clare Torry’s hysterics, and it would have saved the band an undisclosed amount of money three decades or so later, but it’s still an impressive display of Wright’s keyboard magic. “Eclipse” is a somewhat pedestrian conclusion, not something unusual even in the greatest Floyd albums.

Nevertheless, whether you take it as a whole or for the best parts, the album remains a tremendous achievement. This “30th Anniversary Edition”, so far as I can remember older CD editions, sounds better than ever. The bass is a trifle boomy in a few places, lest you forget who the real boss was, but it’s no big deal. The booklet is lavishly illustrated with all sorts of curiosities, including a Russian vinyl cover that translates the title as “The Opposite Side of the Moon”. ( )

You can have The Wall, to me this will always be the quintessential Pink Floyd album. ( )
