5 stars Being in a band, I like to study other musicians trying to pick up on what everyone is doing and hopefully some of it would rub off on me. I listen to band such as Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, and Gentle Giant and there comes a point where I say to myself, well, I can't do that. But when I listen to Pink Floyd, I can say, Hey, I can do that! Yet, when I try, I can't. If you listen carefully to the Dark Side of The Moon, you can hear why some people say that it's overrated. The beats and the melodies are so slow and so simple, but, that is where people get stumped. Pink Floyd had the patience to make such slow and ambient music and I say that that is the secret. Patience! Everyone else wants to show off with their instruments in other bands and in the end they never sound like Pink Floyd for the lack of patience when making their music. My only criticism about the Dark Side is "Money". Not that it's a bad song, but it just doesn't belong with the rest of the Album. In order to stay in the same continuous mood when listening to the album, I always skip "Money". Again, it's just not the right mood.
