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.

I once stated that I thought that this is the only album that really has a claim to the title 'greatest album ever.' I am not really sure that I would phrase that statement with such tenacity and chutzpah now, but I do feel that my point remains viable: There are no other albums out there that are as hard-hitting, grandiose, and thematically audacious as Dark Side. How many albums can talk about death, money, time, insanity, etc. all in the same breath and sound infinitely beautiful at the same time?

The guy doing the lead vocals for "Great Gig in the Sky" actually sounds like a woman, doesn't she? (keyword: Wikipedia)

A mixture of calm relaxing tones and pure delight. Dark Side of the Moon will at times have songs that make you wonder what message Pink Floyd was trying to get across. As I'm quite slow remarkably the message didn't hit me until 'Brain Damage'.

Every track has a part to play but there was a few that stood out more than others.

Key Tracks:

Time - You feel like drifting along to this song that well.. is about time drifting

Great Gig in the Sky - I'm mesmerised by a guy giving what seems to be the vocal performance of his life.

Brain Damage - More for the fact it's the track that actually got me to notice the obvious. It also didn't have any obvious bad factors and was a good all round tune!

Eclipse - Was the final piece that fit so perfectly and great ender.

Dark Side of the Moon is an album that is truly an experience in every sense of the word. At times it will take you on an introspection of the soul, other times it will take you to the depths of space. The album isn't all about a fantastical experience as it also provides real world commentary in songs like Money and Time. Dark Side of the Moon is a completely unique LP that especially demands that you listen to it from start to finish. It's Iconic status in history may make it seem overrated but it has truly earned it's place in the pantheon of perfect albums and in the hearts and souls of millions of listeners.
Best Tracks: Time, Us and Them, Money

An album that transcends the meaning and purpose of music to reach a new height of escapism and entertainment. Contextualized by the human condition and life itself, filled with some of the best music playing ever and seamlessly drawn together into the most accomplished and complete album ever. Must be listened in one go to be fully appreciated.
