This collection of songs stands as proof that the album format is something that really should not be going anywhere.

What else can be said? The deeply philosophical lyrics are delivered by powerful vocals that sound almost like a plea for wisdom, similar to an elder passing down knowledge and life lessons to a younger person. It feels like one long epic song with a scope that has never been matched. The album starts and ends with a heart beating and in between chronicles the crisis of what it means to be a human. Just the best and most legendary album of all time in my opinion and a real testament to what the art can achieve at it's highest.

I have adored this album since forever. Listening now - it is still faultless - like, literally. All these genres found on one album - there's hints of ambience, trance, jazz, rock, soul and a ballad. All sounding undoubtedly Pink Floyd, which somehow manage to co-ordinate perfectly. It's incredible.

From Martinborras 09/05/2014 21:34
I waited a long time to describe what is for me the dark side, and I realized that the best way is to analyze song by song:

- Speak To Me: At first, I did not think this track as a song, but rather it was a simple intro. However, once i listened to it carefully, It really blew my mind! The sound simulating a beating heart is the rarest and invasive rhythm I felt in my life.

- Breath: One of the best songs on the album, as it creates one of the best atmospheres of it. It's amazing what a simple letter like this can do accompanied by a bass played really well by Waters. It definitely gives me the feeling that I'm listening to something from another planet.

- On The Run: This song is really a mental journey, with synthesizer creating never before perceived sensations. The effect synthesizer that simulates a car (in my opinion), which goes from right to left, is totally shocking and fascinating, as it seems that the sound goes through you.

- Time: One of the most complete songs on the disc, with no doubt one of the best guitar solo in history. This song, at the same time, is a lot of songs with the great passage of clocks ringing, with the long introduction of drums, and a verse that, at least to me, takes me back to a classic rock style with Hendrix , which then is cut with a chorus own of the dark side, that changes the whole perspective of the song and creates an atmosphere similar to Breath's one. I think the guitar solo is just the best of song, as it is totally mind blowing and fits perfectly with the rest of the song. In short, it is a sample of what Floyd was able to do at the time.

- The Great Gig In The Sky: This is undoubtedly a masterpiece, and the best composition Wright made as an artist. I always interpreted as a continuous song as the piano continues creating a melody despite the totally mind blowing Clare Torry cry, which is what gives the song that feeling of infinite sadness and pain. It's really hard to come back from this song, as it takes you to a very high point of the album. So, I think, they had to continue it with a track that has little to do with this, as is Money. I think this is my favorite song.

- Money: At first I did not like it one bit, to the point that I've skipped several times. Money has little to do with the album itself, but rather in its way, is a very good track in which Dick Perry uses the saxophone in a way never seen before: as an instrument of rock. The truth is I'd rather listen Money separately and not with the disc.

- Us And Them: Another composition that gives an interesting twist to the disc, and again creates this spatial sense, typical of the disc. The song has a soft, soothing verse, wich emits that particular feeling that gives the echo of Gilmour. I think the chorus as one semi apocalyptic, for the choruses and especially the saxophone again used in a very innovative way. Perry's solo is one of the most majestic things I've heard.

- Any Colour You Like: A quick and accurate improvisation, which leads to one of the most psychedelic places in the album, with the synthesizers creating melodies to continue giving shape to the album. This song is difficult for me to describe it, and at the same time, i really like it.

- Brain Damage: The most special song on the album, so the melody is amazing, and because the song talks about Syd and his mental state, so it is very easy to interpret the song as a sad and melancholy. However, this song is totally mind blowing (i Said That in every song) and is also the best song of Waters, in my opinion.

- Eclipse: What better way to end an album taking everything and putting it in a song, to create a stunning composition that makes feel chills every time you hear it. Eclipse has that fantastic that this led to the universal, where everything is connected to everything, and everything is under the sun is in tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

In short, this is the best album in history, and created my something that I will never be able to forget, it really marked me.
