Prog Reviewer
5 stars At the time of its release, the production, engineering, and dramatic vision of this album were breathtakingly extraordinary. This music surrounded you, placing you in a spacey "Alice in the Wonderland of Space' complete with Sci-Fi Mad Hatters and Cheshire Cats around almost every corner. In classic Floyd fashion, the lyrics are just ambiguous enough to accompany any number of different dreams and interpretations. It even transforms "The Wizard of Oz" into a surreal audio-visual treat!

So trailblazing was this album, that it remained on Billboard Top 100 chart decades after its release. As we enter the 21st century, modern recording technology, sampling, loops and a plethora of multi-tracks bombarding us from every direction have finally colluded to eclipse the engineering and production spectacle that was "Dark Side of the Moon".

But the entire package still serves as a fitting soundtrack to any number of surreal tales. Put on the headphones, relax and close your eyes, and see which movie you create as you listen to one of the most influential psychedelic space rock albums of all time.

Absolutely essential for anyone seeking to develop an appreciation for the melodic, psych and/or space rock sides of Progressive Rock in the 1970's.
