Day 34 of Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. In 1973, Pink Floyd released their eighth studio album, The Dark Side of the Moon, an album that would put Pink Floyd over the top musically, and would become their most successful album in their long and storied careers. Dark Side is a concept album that takes the listener from their first breath of life, to their last. Topics covered include, but aren’t limited to, greed, mental illness, time, and fame. When I reviewed Pink Floyd’s debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, I complained about the instrumentation going on for far too long on much of the album. Pink Floyd mostly ditched this idea on Dark Side, and more often got to the point of the story, much to my satisfaction. On vinyl, the track listing of ten songs is split into side A and side B. The five songs on side A blend together seamlessly, almost into one song. The same goes for side B. David Gilmour’s vocals are very pleasing on Dark Side and I didn’t learn until just now that he replaced original frontman, Syd Barrett amid issues with Barrett’s alleged mental illness. Now I know why their debut album seemed less familiar to me. The song Breathe (In the air) starts slow and inconspicuous, then builds into a frenzy that cued me up for a wild ride. On the Run, one of my favorites, is melodic and urgent. Time, my favorite song, is funky and has tempo changes that hit right in the feels. The Great Gig in the Sky shines bright with the vocal power of Clare Torry, and almost sounds like a funeral procession. Money is a bass driven rock song that is all about greed. Funnily enough, after this album, the band would become very rich. Us and Them is one of the most dynamic pieces on this record, especially due to its falls and builds and jazz roots. It’s spooky and comforting at the same time, like much of the album. Brain Damage and Eclipse are the final nails in the coffin and even though this album is just under 45 minutes, it feels like a lifetime has passed since Speak to Me, the opening track, began. The album closes with a weakening and fading heartbeat. Chills. Now THIS is how you make a concept album! I didn’t want to skip any songs on this album, it was a great journey that was executed precisely. This is an album you MUST hear if you’re passionate about music of any genre. The Dark Side of the Rainbow: When I was a kid, long before I had heard much of Dark Side of the Moon, I had heard the rumors that you could sync this album up with The Wizard of Oz, and it would play perfectly along and match up with the scenes of the film. I always thought that was cool, so I tried it. I rolled a nice joint and cued this up as soon as the MGM lion began to roar. My mind was blown! The two match up so well that it seems it just HAD to be intentional. The band denies this, but you have to give it a try sometime, if you haven’t already that is. I love this album and it’s re-playability value. You will find many things on your second or tenth listen that you probably missed before, and I’m all for it!! Please share your thoughts, memories and opinions on Dark Side of the Moon!!

I saw the cover and I went "okay, easy 5 stars", but then I decided that that wasn't fair. Does one of the go-to greatest rock albums of all time deserve a pass? Absolutely not. I decided to listen to it with a critical ear, as if I had never heard it before. ...easy 5 stars. Every single song is an absolute classic. Sure, it's boomer music, but this album is proof positive that boomers aren't all bad.

One can debate however much they like over how "Wish You Were Here" or "Animals" are arguably better albums that lack the self-indulgent filler-ness of tracks like 'Any Colour You Like' or 'On The Run', and yet, you just can't deny that Pink Floyd tapped into something other-worldly with this album, lyrically, musically, and even conceptually. The guitar solo in 'Time' remains, for my money, the most striking, visceral, and all-around greatest guitar solo I've ever heard, and few songs hit as hard as 'The Great Gig in the Sky', 'Us or Them', or 'Eclipse'. People like to give "Money" flack, but you have to admit the cleverness of putting a track called "Money" at the centre of an album that's arguably about life and the various facets of human existence.

"The record was conceived as an album that focused on the pressures faced by the band during their arduous lifestyle, and dealing with the apparent mental health problems suffered by former band member Syd Barrett, who departed the group in 1968." "Breathe" is a really great song. "On the run" is freaking weird. I would be so scared if I listened to this song high. "Time" is also strange for the first 2:30, but in the best way. Then it turns into a mostly normal Pink Floyd song. Really cool. "Money" is great. "The Great Gig in the Sky" is very cool, I like the vocals throughout. Brain Damage and Eclipse are a great finish. Very little I didn't like in this album. Crazy, spacy production.

Let's set aside the fact that this album was massively innovative in terms of using the studio as an instrument and for integrating non-musical material into pop music. Also immaterial is how well it's done commercially. What matters now is, does it still work? Do the musical collages hold up? Are they tasteful? How are the performances? Does the music still draw you in? How about lyrically? Does the album as a whole cast a spell? Does the sequencing still work? The answer to all the above is, "Fuck, yeah!" This probably isn't even my favorite Pink Floyd album. The songs themselves are a little straightforward for me. I prefer Meddle, Ummagumma, and even The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, which were more experimental in terms of songcraft. But you can't argue with the execution, which remains flawless. The collages which drive the album are impeccably put together and produced. The playing is stunning, especially David Gilmore's guitar playing. It's easy to underestimate what he's doing here--he doesn't seem to break a sweat. But his taste, feel and note choices are sublime. Again, it's easy to underappreciate the subtlety of Roger Water's vocals, but the nuance is quite artful. And every element, every solo, every vocal performance, every production choice, works together to produce a seamless work of art.

Where on Earth (Moon?) do I start with this record. Listening to it with a more (or less?) conscious mind makes the pure unadulterated musical genius way more apparent. The beautiful sax lines layered throughout, the spoken word, the soulful/choral backing vocals, the ability to start a track deep in the psychedelic underworld and bring it out bursting forth into the clear light of a mid June afternoon in the middle of a botanical garden. Hair stands on end and my heart rate noticeably increases at the thought. Beautiful and intensely layered arrangements that never suffocate, always give you space to explore. A perfect soundtrack to the immense theatrics that only a cloudscape against a crisp winter sky can provide (The Great Gig In the Sky?). Enough allusions to experiences on the astral plain thinly veiled as questionable poetry, what a fkn incredible album.

Now this is exactly the kind of album I want from this list. An undisputed classic that I haven't yet heard. Given that this is my first listen, I don't feel a strong personal connection to it yet, but I can easily see why it's heralded as one of the all-time greats. I love this prog music style, where each track just bleeds one into the next. It's psychedelic in nature, but the musical style is much less distorted and more refined. A really cool effect, to make psychedelic music without so much distortion. It seems to open and close with a heartbeat, I liked that touch too. I'm trying to imagine being like a 19 year old stoner the year this came out, this would've been biblical. I saved seven of the ten tracks on here (which is really 7/9 if you exclude the intro). I really can't say anything bad about this. I'm glad I got to hear this removed from any aggressive fanboy hype and just as another album on a list. I'm giving it five stars today because I know it could only become more impressive on additional listens, and I'm already quite blown away. The Floyd was certainly pink on this one. Favorite tracks: Hard to do but Breathe, On the Run, Us and Them, Eclipse. Album art: Iconic. One of the all time greats, without question. Strong, intimidating cover. I've loved this cover for years without even knowing what the music was like. 5/5

Easiest 5 I'll ever give. A truly stellar album. The last four tracks on it are pure ecstasy for me. Definitely more than the sum of its parts, this album must be appreciated as a whole. Flawless production, the instruments and vocals blend tremendously throughout. Thought-provoking existential lyrics, from before it was popular to do so. Stunning dynamics, with loud and quiet sections perfectly juxtaposed. The explosion of sound in the chorus of Us and Them gives me chills. Amazing solo guitar tone. I didn't know about this album until i found it on my own 2 years ago as a 20 yr old. Went into it blind, had never even heard of the band. I never had a parent or friend who raved about it beforehand; i experienced it without any preconceptions of its greatness. And yet, it made quite an impression on me. Anyone who dismisses it as "dad rock" is tragically misguided. It is a soaring masterpiece. This album holds a special place in my heart: it was my gateway into progressive rock, a genre that has captured my heart and my imagination. This album helped show me the artistic heights music can reach when it is in the right hands.

The one album from this list that I can talk about with my friends. It's just about perfect in every way. Accessible to all audiences, highly innovative, tons of diversity, introspective lyrics, smooth vocals that aren't afraid to shout or whisper... Concept of life ties the tracks together and gives greater significance and attention. Tracks seamlessly flow from one to the next so well that it's frustrating you can't glue tracks together in Spotify playlists like what radios do. I like how there's a good mix of instrumental tracks and those with lyrics. It gives you space to process what's happening. Nothing repetitive, each track is constantly evolving, allowing the audience to enjoy every minute of the album. There's much to be said about every song, but "Time" and "Money" are two of my favorite songs of the decade. Love everything from the story to solos to vocals. "Money" in particular is one of the 'richest' and most impressive songs I've ever heard. It shocks me how anyone could come up with something as amazing and beautifully complex as this, especially without modern software.

I have massive nostalgia for this from my uni days which gets it 5 stars. I thiiiink I might still give it 5 stars even hearing it for the first time? It's just a fantastic example of prog. Songs going off in unexpected directions and blending into each other. Sound effects and samples amplifying the ambient qualities. Clare Torry's outstanding vocal performance. I love it all. Fave track - it doesn't really make sense to pick one fave track as a lot of the appeal of the album is how things flow into each other? "Speak to Me" -> "Breathe" -> "On the Run" is great. "Time" -> "The Great Gig In The Sky" is magnificent - I guess this is my fave track pick... "Brain Damage" -> "Eclipse" gives me triumphant chills every time!

This album really is an incredible work of art. The flow of the album is great, there is wonderful use of non-instrument elements (the alarm clocks are brilliant even if they startle me every time), and it is one of those albums that just feels good to listen all the way through. Favorite tracks: the only ones I would exclude from this are the ones like “Speak To Me” where they really aren’t tracks that would ever get played in their own. Thoroughly enjoy this whole album.

Really experiential record to listen to. The lyrics seem timeless, as David Gilmour and Roger Waters guide you through life. From the second track "Breathe", a track that deals with birth and the lessons we teach children, to the final few tracks when the album comes full circle, as "Any Colour You Like", "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" work as a study on death. Hard to argue with an album that still sounds as sonically fresh as Dark Side of the Moon. Fav Tracks: "Breathe", "Brain Damage", "Eclipse", and "The Great Gig In the Sky" Rating 4.5/5

Блять, да пускай этот альбом будет первым во всех возможных топах. Он даже на 81-м месте в топе Metal Hummer был. И там пускай будет. И вот кто хочет начать музыкальное просвещение - пущай слушают. И выкупают за эту призму с радугой. И похуй, что мне Wish You Were Here нравится, возможно, больше. Я и ему 5 ёбну и остальным, если попадутся. Ну разве что не первому, ладно, там душилово ебаное. Охуенный альбом, для своего времени вообще кровь-кишки-распидорасило, ныне не слушается старпёрским калом от слова совсем. Разнообразный, умный, мелодичный, яркий, запоминающийся, эмоциональный... внятный. Ясен хуй, что не могу уже так залипать, как лет 7 назад, когда на плеер впервые загнал. Но я спустя столько времени, собсна, ни во что залипать не могу. Да и чё это за хуйня, что если восторг настоящий - он должен тянуться всю жизнь? Не, всё, раз словил, ставится печать "10 из 10, боже мой, 10 из 10". Кроме там отдельных случаев, когда себя уличаешь в явной незрелости пиздюческой. И пускай призма с радугой остаётся "символом настоящей музыки". И пускай до сих пор дифирамбы поют. Потому что альбом охуенный. Комплексный и доступный. Альбом - феномен. А занижать за оверхайпнутость - значит опускать до просто отличных, крепких альбомов. А это вообще низость какая-то. Думаю, в этом случае даже можно привести цитату Стива Бушеми: "Опуская альбом, ты опускаешь себя...".

Det ska sägas att jag verkligen inte är någon Pink Floyd-connoisseur, min tidigare erfarenhet av bandet är mycket begränsad, även om de verkar i en tid och en genre som jag annars älskar. Jag har självklart hört lovorden om detta album, hur det höjs till skyarna som ett att historiens främsta, och det har såklart påverkat min första, mer grundliga lyssning av det. Egentligen var mittenspåren, Time - The Great Gig in the Sky - Money, de enda jag hade hyfsad koll på inför lyssningen. Även om dessa låtar är fantastiska, var det därför låtar i början och slutet som fick mig att haja till. Först On the Run, som en instrumentell/experimentell rymdresa genom världens största lavalampa. På B-sidan fångades jag av Us and Them, av den livsviktiga saxofonen och bandet som går igång när Gilmour tar ton i andra halvorna av varje vers. Min första lyssning blev hackig och uppdelad, dels gjord i bilen på väg till covidvaccinering, och dels under en joggingtur. Känslan som dominerade då var att albumet, om än otroligt, saknar de absoluta höjdpunkterna som skulle göra det till en 5:a. Säkerligen var jag påverkad av den enorma hypen, och kunde inte riktigt höra vad alla andra har hört. Men, jag älskar konceptalbum, och vet att konceptalbum är gjorda för att sitta ner och genomföra en fokuserad lyssning, och det var just det jag gjorde dagen efter. Jag kan omöjligt vara kunnigare än musikhistoriens samlade kritikerkår; jag var tvungen att ge det en ärlig chans. När jag sedan satt där, jag hade gjort min research, jag följde med på Genius under varje låt, jag blundade under de viktigaste solona (Time!!), fick jag en helt annan upplevelse av ~helheten~. Det är klart att jag saknade några tydliga höjdpunkter när hela albumet, hela konceptet är en enda lång höjdpunkt, ett privilegium. Samtidigt så angeläget och genomtänkt - hur albumet behandlar livet, tiden, konsumtion, psykisk ohälsa, själva existensen - och samtidigt så extremt virtuost och exceptionellt musikaliskt genomfört. Om jag inte ger The Dark Side Of The Moon fem stjärnor, hur ska jag då någonsin kunna ge något annat album fem stjärnor? Bästa låt: Jag har nyss tjatat om att helheten och konceptet är det viktiga, men då det är skitnödigt att säga "hela albumet" säger jag Time. Den är bäst.

I went home for a bit. The local junior college, the I had attended a couple classes at years before, as the theater/film department was getting axed, hosted some kind of light show event at their observatory. My mom was interested: Me, my now-wife, and my parents headed there to see it. Turns out that along with the star-viewing party was a laser show accompanying Dark Side. I had, at that point, not listened to the album. I had, as far as I know, only heard Pink Floyd ambiently. My mom was underwhelmed. And, in a cliché, I was overwhelmed. It's not quite a masterpiece, but it is very, very good. Sounded like a warm fuzzy blanket the first time and still does. I don't think that the feeling is quaint, but if it is I don't care. The music doesn't overstay its welcome, it returns to its themes and motives on time, and it contains the appropriate amount of space for its title.

"Breathe (In The Air)" has the classic chill, progressive/psychedelic rock, Pink Floyd Vibe to it -I do like the synth(?) riff of "On The Run" -"Time" is certainly a standout song. Definitely has a solid groove, and I how it is less-drone-like-ness than the other songs on that side of the album -In my opinion, "Money" is definitely the best song on the album, by quite a wide margin. Way more energy and groove, and the jam parts have lots more going on, more evidently and more quickly. And it gets pretty darn heavy too. -"Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" are good too -Overall very sonically interesting, even in the slower parts

I was surprised to see that I not only got an album I've already heard before so early (day 4), but that it was also one that I have heard so many times because I love it so much. My uncle gave me a copy of this album on CD when I was in high school, and it became a main staple of the CD book in my old Honda Accord. It has also been my go-to flight album as it features a great range of calm to intense sounds that make the airplane experience fun/interesting. It is hard for me to argue that it isn't a perfect album as every track stands out and cannot be skipped (whenever I hear one song, I want to hear the entire album). If I HAD to choose my favorite tracks, I would say Time, Breathe (in the Air), and the Brain Damage/Eclipse finale (that's like half of the album right there). 5/5.

Perfection. Utter, complete, absolute perfection as music, as art, as an experience. I strongly encourage you to spend time watching Polyphonic's series of brief videos going through this album song by song. The videos are available on Nebula (worth subscribing to) and YouTube. Noah (creator and producer of Polyphonic's videos) has a wonderful gift for adding cultural and societal perspective to music and is definitely worth following.

Maybe a little overhyped, but there's a reason this album gets so much praise; it's excellent. Dark Side of the Moon is not my favourite PF release, I think each of the three subsequent albums surpass it, but this was where they really transformed themselves into a great band. Money is one of the all-time best prog rock songs.

Flows exceptionally well. Immaculate production and sound design for its time. "The Great Gig In The Sky" is one of the most chilling vocal performances of all time. "Money" is such a naturally grooving 7/4 song and the Gilmour's solo bangs. The rising chorus in "Us and Them" is just massive. There is a reason this has the universal acclaim that it does, and I 100% agree.

This record got me into Pink Floyd, and is the first of the three albums that I consider the best of their discography; Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, and Animals. I love David Gilmour's style and tone. Lots of really great analog synth lines. The song writing is a good balance of Gilmour's and Waters' styles. An album I've listened to probably hundreds of times at this point, but still isn't played out in my mind.

Dark Side of the Moon Love the dreamy start to the album. Feels like On the Run kinda kills the momentum though, and the abrupt intro of Time is jarring. Maybe this is on purpose? Money still slaps kinda an abrupt end too lol

One of the greatest albums ever made. From beginning to end this album is a sweeping symphonic journey exploring life, death, and madness. Pink Floyd were always keen to experiment, and this album sees them going beyond to use the studio itself as an instrument in a way that no one had before. Pink Floyd is known for their long songs that blend into each other and this is no exception. Songs are allowed to build naturally and it is clear that this album was not made for radio success, though it is still in heavy rotation on classic rock stations

What a masterpiece. I have mostly heard The Wall growing up and have otherwise not really gotten into Pink Floyd. That one is one of the most bloated, indulgent albums of all time and is fantastic for it. Dark Side of the Moon while still pretty out there is pretty much stripped down compared to Wall. This is really 4-5 songs with interludes in between. Doesn’t overstay it’s welcome, gets to the point and leaves stronger because of it. Time the ultimate mid-life crisis song hahaha

What else can be said about this one? It's the epitome of commercial Floyd, and yet it's first and foremost a timeless gem. Countless hi-fi systems are said to have been tested with this record during the seventies. But this album is not only great because of its sound. It's great because of the overall artistic intent, its *songs*, its pop instincts, its topical lyrics about madness, time and capitalism, not to mention its incredible (and trippy) sense of balance between experimentation and melancholic melodies. One for the ages. Number of albums left to review or just listen to: 908 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: 51 Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 26 Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): 20

Tim's right, this album is hard to deny. And yet... Just kidding! This is a really remarkable work and I think the best representation of what Pink Floyd are capable of at their best. It's coherent and focused, and really tells a narrative over the course of its tracks. At the same time, there are small moments when I feel like this record verges on indulgent and certain choices in the arrangements and overdubs don't quite sit as elegantly as they could. Especially in the first half of the record. An unfortunate tendency that would grow into quite a monster by the time The Wall came around. Listening to this so closely after Abbey Road, I'm struck by how much of the production choices are indebted to the former. I don't think this record could exist without this particular forerunner. They also have similarly incredible medleys making up their second sides. 4.5/5 Favourite songs: Us and Them through Eclipse

👍

I quite like Pink Floyd, but never understood why this is regarded as their magnum opus. They have plenty of other albums, both earlier and later, which I prefer over this one. Still, it's solid. Maybe it's sprawling and unfocused... or maybe a dream-like collage of styles coming in and out of focus. I like that the album is confident enough to reward a patient full-album listening experience. I also like the actual songs when they do show up, and I like how the lyrics root all the psychedelia into down-to-earth post-war British experience. But yeah, it is sprawling and unfocused, and perhaps a little too mild-mannered than any rock album deserves to be.

вощще классичная классика уже, даже как-то писать о ней неловко. Ну я могу сказать так: я прошёл довольно долгий путь от детского неприятия этой нудятины до подросткового щенячего восторга и наконец к новому витку зрелого остывания. Достоин ли этот альбом считаться одним из лучших альбомов эвер и быть третьим среди тех 1001, что надо послушать перед смертью? Да нет, конечно. Здесь есть охуенные темы (Time, Money, Brain Damage), и в целом он концептуально насыщен, очень красивые клавиши, саксофоны (или трубы, хз), баба вощще четко орет в Великом Гиге на небесах... но блен, не так уж это все легендарно. Наверное, один из самых переоцененных альбомов в истории, что, впрочем, плохим его не делает. Просто ну. Стена лучше. И Животные лучше. И ВЮВХ лучше. Хуже только Дивижн Бел, лол (из того, что я слушал), а ну и Эндлес Ривер, очевидно. Короче классика из 10, послушать очень приятно, но чего-то всё же не хватает.

A classic album graces us today. One that I have heard so much about throughout my life but have never truly listened to (either forwards or backwards). This was a fantastic album and as I've heard, best listened to all the way through. Time was one of my favs in the album. As a whole, this is a really cool concept of one long song all the way through. Lots of instruments and psychedelic feels to this. And this may be one of the coolest album covers ever. At least if you go to a college campus.

"Time" y "Money" las mejores canciones de este disco.

By far the most enjoyable Pink Floyd album that this list has generated for me so far. So much better without "that psychedelic noodling stuff" (as Dave Gilmour described it). I had to read about the concept of the album in order to understand it. Each side reflects a journey through a human life, covering themes including greed, death and insanity. It also followed Syd Barret's breakdown and exit from the band. That context makes a big contribution to my understanding and enjoyment of the music. Overall, it is a pleasant listen and interesting idea which is well executed. However, musically it is a bit too polished for my tastes, which to me somehow detracts from its emotiveness. 3.5/5.

I really dislike concept albums in the main. They seem to bring out the worst in Band's "creativity" leading to them just demonstrating how smart they are and sacrificing song-craft. This album though is bearable from that point of view. You can really see the shadow that Syd's departure continued to cast over the band from the lyrical content

Despite the cult of personality surrounding this album, it does deliver on its premise of a highly thematic rock album that doesn't get lost in its own narrative.

Like Pantera, Pink Floyd are a band who I really liked when first getting into music, but have seldom use for. While I give them credit for introducing me to odder time signatures and elements of progressive and jazz, I'd much rather listen to King Crimson or Peter Gabriel-era Genesis. I find their themes and songwriting much more appealing. That said, I'll admit that one of my all-time favorites albums is by PF- Wish You Were Here. Dark Side of the Moon is pretty good, too. It flows together quite well and is a pretty smooth listen, even if I could go the rest of my life never listening to half of these songs again. A solid B.

Difficult to rate this one, I can't say I'm the biggest Pink Floyd fan. I think they're good but not a band I want to ever sit down and listen to. Very much the same with Dark Side of the Moon. It's such a cultural touchpoint and lauded so highly it's almost become boring to me. I'm guessing if I heard it on my own before I heard all the hype that wouldn't cloud my judgement. Culturally/musically it's a 5 but personally it's a 4.

I listened to this one a lot in high school. Seems like there's a lot of urban legend around it, like the whole Wizard of Oz thing. It has never quite lived up to he hype for me, but I do enjoy it. My favorites are the instrumentals "Great Gig" and "Any Colour."

Another classic album I had never listened to. Sorta like meeting someone famous, you just hope they’re not an asshole. Well, this album is not an asshole. It’s just some classic rock n roll. I can see how this album could be a 5/5 for some folks but it just didn’t grab me that way. I was impressed with the mixing, tenderness and unexpected variety on the album.

Great album, though it's not my favourite Pink Floyd album. The first half has a few weak bits, and I've never really enjoyed Time and Money, which seem to be very popular for some reason. That being said, the second half is amazing, and Brain Damage/Eclipse are two of my favourite PF songs. And the depth and layers of sound in Pink Floyd songs is amazing - this made me remember how amazing the Roger Waters concert was. Great stuff!

This album is obviously pretty good, but it was never my favourite Pink Floyd album. It's a 4.5, but I'm rounding down so that I can distinguish between this and the PF albums I like better (which will be 5), in case they're also on this site.

Iconic and all that. Great vocals although at times it sounds like parody… or maybe I heard the parodies first? Dunno. Pink Floyd is one of my moms favorite bands, but this was not her favorite record when I was growing up, this was not on pay as often as Wall or the one with the pig. 4 stars will make it.

I've listened to this album a zillion times so it's rather hard to rate it as if I've heard it for the first time. It's great, can't say much else.

I remember buying this back in the day. I really liked it and played it regularly. Then I heard New Rose by The Damned, so Pink Floyd became the enemy. I'm more kind to them now. It's a classic.

This was nice to revisit. While I'd hear single tracks, the first time I listened to the entire album was through the BBC radio play "Dark Side." The concept of ethics that was interwoven with the lyrics really interested me. Enjoyed listening to a first-edition press that my father had.

This one surprised me. I for some reason thought Pink Floyd was very rock, but it’s…mellow. I guess it’s sort of stoner, and maybe that’s why it’s got that whole cult following.

Yawn 🥱. Not enough killer plenty of filler, especially in the first half of the album. Each song has a 2 minute intro which is about a minute too long. It gave birth to prog rock which is frankly unforgivable. The bands best songs (other than money) are on their other less ejaculated over albums. Some nice guitar solos, but I will always be a wish you were here guy. “Money”, “Us and them” and “Brain Damage” lift it up to a 3. And after your 1 for the strokes, Dickie, that’s more than you deserve. I always think for truly great albums you want to relisten Immediately after finishing. I don’t get that with this one. 3/5

I'm not a huge Pink Floyd fan, and I honestly hate Another Brick in the Wall, but I have a grudging respect for them. This album doesn't actually flow like people seem to think it does - for a concept album it sure does leave you hanging a fair bit with no continuity - but some of the songs are alright. Money being the obvious one. Us and Them has its moments, but it also spends a lot of time dilly-dallying around. Same with a few others as well. Will probably never willingly listen again, but 3/5.

Aparte muziek, beetje zweverig. Vooral met veel gitaren en weinig melodie. Klinkt allemaal prima. Beetje de "Air" van de jaren 70 of zo. Favorieten zijn "Money", "Us And Them" and "Brain Damage". ***

Yeah… it’s a bonafide classic. I don’t really have any thoughts to contribute, this thing kinda takes care of itself at this point. It’s pretty much requisite for …everyone who listens to music? Still, I much prefer Animals. 3.5/5

What more can be said about Dark Side of the Moon that so many of others have already written? It is a good album and I don't mind it on occasion. It is a bit pompous for my like and dare I say patchy. It maybe got a bit overplayed and over worshipped by others for me to get into. I get the the love but this is another one of those albums that never really had much impact for me.

I do enjoy an album where the short intro song leads into the first full track. This one goes above and beyond with that. The beginning of Time is meh but the guitar solo is👌🏼. I feel like I enjoyed parts/elements of the songs, but rarely the entire thing.

Pink Floyd are a dilemma for me, kind of like the Beatles. One of those bands you should like given my general taste in music. Don’t get me wrong, I do like them…but I think I’m a “greatest hits” type fan. They have some really good songs, and some of them are even on this album but I find a lot of the weird (quite possibly on drugs when recorded) music doesn’t do it for me. I remember when I bought the album (“because everyone should own DSOTM”) and listened to it for the first time. My general thought was there are a few good songs but the rest I either needed to be high or watching the wizard of oz (or both) to get through. Nothing has changed. This is the “Bladerunner of Albums”. So so but still good enough for a 3.5 rounded down.

For a universally acclaimed work of musical genius this sure is boring. I had to make the effort to put aside 45mins to listen on headphones to see any appeal. Once I really focused in, I started to enjoy the soundscapes - particularly the bass and saxophone and I’m sure the production was pioneering for the time. Another album that can’t quite live up to it’s iconic reputation for me though.

It's difficult to properly listen to something we've all heard a billion times before. We've all been told this is one of the greatest albums so many times, yet I don't think I like it that much to be honest. My brother loves this album. I can take it or leave it. I mean, it's okay, inoffensive enough, but I never understood why it gets so much praise heaped upon it. Maybe familiarity has bred comtempt here.

Aimless, meandering, and interminable with an incessant cacophony of nonsense. There are some decent songs buried in there, but you have to slog through so much shit to get to them. Time is decent enough once it finally starts in earnest. And Money is the obvious best song because it's the one most structured like, you know, a song. But even that becomes tiresome by the end. This is an album that I will never understand.
