I hear many opinons, some being it is just a huge pretentious rock opera and others saying that it is deep. It is true that the average listener won't be able to understand it during the first few turns. Besides, listening to music is about enjoying what you're hearing, not some really deep story. Only thing I like about the album are the singles, which are amazing.

People who have an opinion like me can be countered by saying they're too light headed. People who praise the album's "deep meaning" can be countered by either overpraising it and looking at the album from a viewpoint pink floyd wasn't intending, or just saying it to look smart (believe me, i bet many pink floyd listeners are like this)

what's your opinion on the subject?
what? so other topics about it are completely forbidden? it's pretty easy to lose track of your topic in an Only section.
