5 stars 'Dark Side Of The Moon' - Pink Floyd (9/10)

Once again, Pink Floyd demonstrates their uncanny, unreplicated ability to keep dishing out masterpieces. From 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' to 'The Wall', a saga of remarkable music was fashioned from the creative spirits of a few young men from Britain. Of all of their works; although not my favourite, Dark Side of the Moon is admittedly their most cohesive, best 'put-together' album they have ever made.

Quite honestly, for the first two years or so I had this album, I thought it was incredibly overrated, and not worth the recognition it got. It took me a long car ride, with only the Dark Side CD at hand, to finally get me to realize all the brilliance I had been missing out on. I consider myself corrected.

To truly appreciate the nuances and genius of this album, it's absolutely necessary to play it from start to finish. Unlike some albums where songs can be enjoyed fully on their own, Dark Side is more of a 40 minute epic; each song flows into the next. By means of comparison, Dark Side of the Moon can be considered a more mellow version of Rush's '2112' epic, nonetheless twice the length.

Despite the albums generally laid back feel, there are some moments (The Great Gig In The Sky, Any Colour You Like) that get incredibly intense. The lyrics fit in perfectly to the musical feel as well.

This is an album you can either put on as background music, or delve deep under the layers of it's musical mystique and take a true journey through space and time.

Will be remembered forever as one of the greats.
