5 stars A must-listen oeuvre.

The most known cover-album from this superb band. Not in vain, in fact with this record the floydian minds score a revolution in the musical industry, for the best. They took the concept to the last, as well as the Beatles with "Sgt Ppper's..." and gave a masterpiece to the rock stream, not only progressive but a universal masterpiece.

There's maybe just a really little pinch of people out there who haven't listen this, but if there's any need... This trip begun with laconic laughs with a background heartbeat mood in crescendo asking to "Speak to Me" before the first chords reveals the substance trough a "Breathe", atmospherically speaking and much more relaxed now the air streams in suspended waves of the voices and instrumentation. The electronic interlude came rushing "On the Run" among moog's circles and special effects until the clock tunes paves the way for "Time" which, with a little leitmotif form the main song, set the tone for a magical vocal celestial expression on "The Great Gig in the Sky" almost religious frame before this world reality assault the ears on jazzy chords and coin machines of "Money" the single per excellence. Since here, every track its tangled with each other remaining the main leitmotif from the opening track since "Us and Them" passing through a psychedelic daubed passage playfully asking to see in the music "Any Colour You Like" and returning to those chords from the very beginning and relaxing a mental description of a loony with "Brain Damage" naming the opus with its lyrics when this man promise the band "I'll see you on the dark side of the moon". Finally the conclusions hast to the end, running almost violently in front the shadow of the "Eclipse" which threat over the moon shape.

The darkness cover up that satellite and in the air its heartbeat fades into silence.
