From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:15
With its technological mastery and its conventional wisdom once-removed, this is a kitsch masterpiece--taken too seriously by definition, but not without charm. It may sell on sheer aural sensationalism, but the studio effects do transmute David Gilmour's guitar solos into something more than they were when he played them. Its taped speech fragments may be old hat, but for once they cohere musically. And if its pessimism is received, that doesn't make the ideas untrue--there are even times, especially when Dick Parry's saxophone undercuts the electronic pomp, when this record brings its cliches to life, which is what pop is supposed to do, even the kind with delusions of grandeur.

I'm finally 'getting it'. This has been the one album that I grew up 'trying to get' and I just couldn't. I didn't know what I was missing after five or ten complete listens, but last night the penny dropped. Persevere.

This album is like contamplating life and death, the meaning of the things around you, and the inevitable realisation that you're just an insane person in an asylum full of insane people called Life.


Only then with lots of organs and guitar solos

In my opinion the best concept album in music history. The tracks are so intertwined and holistic, and the impression that this album leaves is astounding. The concept of lunacy (moon = luna) is chaotic, nerve-wrecking and enticing, filled with complexity.

Meddle, their previous release, truly was facilitating for the progression towards TDSOTM and a turning-point towards what would be realized here.
The unfortunate story of Syd Barrett's mental state and '68 abandonment of the band is so beautifully expressed in the revolving themes of Pink Floyd's next two albums from Meddle, and really states the band's close attachment to their beloved founder.

Luckily for music, the hurt and anguish was expressed in what would become a genre-defining album in the exploration of concept and sound in progressive rock, as it was for music in general.
