As close to classic perfection as any worldly group can reach. This is the rock album to judge all others by.

You've probably just overplayed it. I envy the people who have never heard this album before and get to experience playing it through from start to finish without any prior listening. I remember the awe i felt when listening to it the first few dozen times. But sadly overplaying it slightly wears that feeling out out, however, it to me is still the closest any album has got to perfection.

After loving this album for about two years, I find that I've had a change of heart. I just don't really enjoy it anymore. For a while I was enthralled by the multi-layered production and the operatic sweep of this album, but now the only song I still really like is Us and Them.
It took a long time for me to admit this to myself.

In context, this album is something out of this world, especially with how it plays with all those sounds in a beautiful stereo. You could arguably defend it is the best on that matter. It is a no-brainer when talking about this album to mention how it was completely out of the 70s production, and kicks ass many 80s albums as well. I love the 7/8 pace used in Money, and the rest of the songs are fine.

Solid album but maybe a bit overrated (or maybe I am simply a hater).

The concept here is really something to behold. I can't think of a time in the past 100 years, nor in the foreseeable future when this album won't be valid to those whom understand it. Ultimately, it's the pressures and expectations of modern life that will drive us all to insanity - Quite possibly the greatest concept ever conceived.

The greatest and most complete album of all time. This is coming from a rap fan.

Although this is an amazing work by one of the greatest band in music history, and surely the one recorded in the best way, this is not their best album: the psychedelic atmosphere is about to vanish in favor of progressive and opera features. The result is that "Dark Side of the Moon" lost a lot of the magical and subversive sound of the earliest works.

I always indicate Dark Side of the Moon as the template of a music album in general.
It's not their best album, it's the album that they made in the BEST WAY though.

Every single tune is absolutely stunning and unforgettable, Time is one of my favourite songs and Eclipse is the best song to end an album.

Not even a song disappoints me, neither the "weaker" songs like On The Run or Any Colour You Like because in their way they create a beautiful atmosphere, the "Dark Side" Atmosphere.

9,5.
