5 stars Dark Side of the Moon to me is the greatest album ever made. From start to finish this album is perfect. The music has space and the lyrics could not be better. This is Pink Floyd's first "concept album" and the first time that Roger Waters wrote all of the lyrics.

1. Speak to Me - a short overture of sounds and voices to come throughout the album. (7/10)

2. Breathe - this is truly the opening song of the album. The music is slow and soothing covered by David Gilmour's great vocals. (10/10)

3. On the Run - a short instrumental with a great sequence of notes from a synthesizer. (7/10)

4. Time - this is probably my second favorite song on the album. David Gilmour's vocals and the guitar work is excellent and Richard Wright shows how great of a vocalist he is. A great song followed by Breathe (Reprise). (10/10)

5. The Great Gig in the Sky - a great instrumental from Richard Wright. Clare Torry provides vocals over Richard's piano work. (9/10)

6. Money - one of the greatest bass riffs ever written and clever lyrics. (9/10)

7. Us and Them - a very soothing song that deals with greed and war with great vocals by David and Richard and a saxophone solo by Dick Parry (also plays in money). (10/10)

8. Any Colour You Like - this is the weakest song on the album. It still has great music, not quite as good as the other instrumentals. (6/10)

9. Brain Damage - my all time favorite song. Roger Waters finally provide vocals and sings some of the greatest lyrics ever written. (10/10)

10. Eclipse - this song goes with Brain Damage and ends with the same slow pulse beat the album begins with. (10/10)

This is a perfect album. Though the songs are not as long and complex as "Echoes" or "Atom Heart Mother", they still create one of prog's greatest albums.
