I still haven't quite fully recovered from my first exposure to this nearly thirty years ago. :lol:

It's been my favorite Pink Floyd album for so long that I almost feel guilty admitting that they have other albums that I like just as much.

Musically I could make a pretty good one disc album out of this but then I realise that wouldn't work theatrically :lol: . I like a fair bit of it as I say but its not an album I would play without skipping large portions. I voted it a 3.

I think it might be my favourite Pink Floyd album, though there are a few songs I always skip. I wish "What Shall We Do Now" was on the original album. Overall though, it's good stuff.

I'm with you on that. Even though "Empty Spaces" is great, I love that tune far more.

Agree with you both.

A great album, although the 4th side does tend to wallow too much in bombast and dreariness for me.

Interesting that you mention that, I have always thought The Wall (1979) was heavily influenced by The Lamb (1974), in the artistic aproach of the whole thing: conceptual story-telling double album about a young man and all the sh*t that is happening inside his mind, all heavily theatrically stage it when played live. No wonder the Floyd decided aganist using a Hipgnosis cover just like they had done in all their previous albums.

But Floyd did conceptuals before Lamb, and Lamb's cover was designed by Hipgnosis :?
