Hands down the best album of all time. Has been my favourite for as long as I can remember, and likely will be for the forseeable future. The quintessential rock album.

The only album I have always loved. First heard this thing when I was little riding in my dad's car late at night down the winding rural roads of England. Since then this album has revealed more meaning and relevancy to me. 10/10 don't think it will ever be surpassed in terms of influence and timelessness.

A prog rock masterpiece. Finally the Floyd deliver a brilliant album. Meddle, was a step in the right direction, but, dark side of the moon, is the giant leap. Every part of the record is indispensable, the atmosphere superb, the playing great, and off the course the songs fantastic. Money, is about the only song on the LP that works on it's own, everything else has to be listened to in the context of the album. That isn't dismissing the tunes, most Floyd records are like that, but, dark side, is the LP that defines the band more than any other. Dark side, isn't my favourite Pink Floyd album, but it is their best.

“There's someone in my head but it's not me”

Pink Floyd may not have invented the concept album, but they perfected it. Groundbreaking at the time, The Dark side of the moon redefined what it meant to make music listening a truly immersive experience. Groundbreaking at the time, the songs are often separated by eerie interludes of synths and sound effects painting landscapes of paranoia, escapism, and mental illness. If there’s one word that comes to mind when thinking about Dark Side of the Moon it’s: “Classic”

On one hand, its rock music, all the elements you expect are there: guitars, bass, drums, vocals, etc. And when taken out of context, none of the songs jump out as remarkable. The beauty lies in the experience. One can get lost in the landscape of “Us and Them” and “The Great Gig in the Sky” and feel haunted by the anxiety provoking “On the Run” and relate to the insanity of “Brain Damage”

All great albums are great because of the story, and how well the individual elements of the story transition and build on one another. This is especially true of The Dark Side of the Moon. There’s a narrator in the background occasionally murmuring a sort of choppy, almost disturbing narrative. This compliments the music which has this feel of slight disturbance, a discontent with the status quo. The album is a testament to the temporal nature of things. The anxiety and stress put into work to obtain money, dealing with the insanity of life to build an empire of wealth, running like a madman while struggling to breathe. “And everything under the sun is in tune. But the sun is eclipsed by the moon” the listener is reminded, as the sound of a heart beat fades out to close the album.

If I had to write a paper on how one album was objectively the best of all time, this is the obvious choice. It doesn't get more timeless than this.

The only album I know every note of that gets better each and every time I listen to it. To be honest, that's the sole reason this isn't number one on my list, as I feel it'll never get as good as it can possibly be. Not much to say about this that hasn't already been said. Moments that give me full-body goose bumps: the solo in "Time", all of "The Great Gig in the Sky", all of "Eclipse". Just great moment after great moment.
