Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 55/500!

Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Pink Floyd Rated 9th!

Pink Floyd's most successful and singularly defining album is here to stay. The Dark Side of the Moon has sold over 40 million copies worldwide since its release in 1973, and it shows no signs of letting up. With lush, immaculate production and sweeping instrumentals, The Dark Side of the Moon is unrivaled in sonic brilliance. The complex textures found within have captivated audiophiles for over thirty years.

With lyrics about seemingly mundane details set against dreamy, atmospheric backdrops, the songs on The Dark Side of the Moon achieve a truly emotional response. Performances are not virtuosic, but they are brilliant nonetheless and were likewise brilliantly recorded. Abbey Road Studios engineer Alan Parsons and Pink Floyd made use of some of the most advanced techniques available at the time to craft a sound that was innovative yet entirely classic, by any sense of the word. Swirling organs, mellow drums, and spacious guitars are signature sounds that have been inextricably linked with Pink Floyd's magnificent songwriting.

The Dark Side of the Moon is a peerless entry in the annals of classic rock history. No record collection should be without this multi-platinum masterpiece.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London between June 1972 and January 1973.

"I think every album was a step towards Dark Side of the Moon," keyboardist Rick Wright said. "We were learning all the time, the techniques of the recording and our writing was getting better." As a culmination of their inner-space explorations of the early 1970s, the Floyd toured the bulk of Dark Side in Britain for months prior to recording. But in the studio, the band articulated bassist Roger Waters' lyric reveries on the madness of everyday life with melodic precision ("Breathe," "Us and Them") and cinematic lustre (Clare Torry's guest vocal aria "The Great Gig in the Sky"). Dark Side is one of the best-produced rock albums ever, and "Money" may be rock's only Top Twenty hit in 7/8 time." -

"The audiophile vinyl treatment of Dark Side Of The Moon is a sonic and visual treasure. Like the CD reissue, the intricate complexity of the recording is captured vibrantly on the LP. Guitar separation is outstanding with crisp balance. The multi-tracking layers the vocals on top of the instruments (“Breathe”, “Time”) creating a fuller sound. Even with a terse electronic aesthetic, the shrillness is mitigated. The sequencer and special effects (chimes, tape loops) display unexpected subtlety. The analogue synthesizers blend discreetly with the rock melody lines. Clare Torry’s mind-numbing vocal improvisation (“Great Gig In The Sky”) has an acoustic, gospel resonance." - Robbie Gerson,, 5 Stars!!!,
