Not my favorite Pink Floyd record. The production values and music I admit are excellent. It's the lyrics, big downer. Typical Roger Waters doom and gloom. What happened to such a talented man to make him so bitter?

It's not my favourite, but it's the best album I've ever heard. It has many advantages: vocals (The Great Gig In The Sky, Brain Damage), insrtumentals (Time, Us And Them), lyrics (all tracks), originality, experiments, innovations. And what's the most important is impression and atmosphere that remains for all album.

One of the most perfect albums I've ever listened to. Every song is amazing, powerful, emotional and tremendous. Best Pink Floyd album and one of the best albums ever. Classic!

Believe it or not, Pink Floyd isn't actually my favourite band, but instead a very close second just behind the band Delerium. However, I had no doubt that one of Pink Floyd's albums was deserving of this number one spot. This was the band that redefined music for me. It's clear to me that Pink Floyd puts so much time and thought to every song that's on the album. Every detail of their albums seem perfectly planned out, not just with the instruments tone, or lyrics, but even the placement of each song wasn't without a purpose. Dark Side of The Moon is perhaps the most ambiguous of my three favourite albums of theirs. Instead of telling a massive story like The Wall or being a tribute to a real person like Wish You Were Here, Dark Side of The Moon seems to simply be a commentary on life. This is why it's brilliant. Each song is just ambiguous enough that it can still be powerful even outside of the album's context making Dark Side of The Moon the perfect album to introduce new listeners to Pink Floyd.

I feel alone! I don't think it's the best PF album. I only got into listening to PF albums in recent years, and I think that's the problem. I respect it was a game changer on release but it just doesn't do it for me listening now as it obviously does for so many other people. Sorry! As it's so highly rated it should be an album everyone at least listens to....

From NecroBadger 12/14/2015 17:00
The enduring popularity of this album is hardly surprising. Lyrically it deals directly and succinctly with the collective cares and worries of probably everyone in the western world. Ageing, the passage of time, money and greed, warfare and cruelty, the memories and experiences that make us who we are, and the very real possibility that the pressures of this seemingly ordered but probably chaotic world will drive us insane. It would be hard not to relate to this.

Musically, it's a multi-layered landscape that still reveals surprises on repeated listens, and flows as one continuous piece. And the production is faultless; it sounds like it could have been recorded yesterday.

It's sold so many copies that it is a statistical certainty that it is being played somewhere in the world as you read this. Like it or not, this is pretty much the soundtrack to modern life (as well as the first half of the Wizard of Oz)
