5 stars A cosmic entity, Dark Side of the Moon is one of Pink Floyd's most profound musical statements, with some of their best, most universal lyrics. It's composed, recorded, and has been performed as one continuous composition, and the indivual songs are classics themselves, "Breathe" contiaining one of the most effective uses of a I-IV chord progression, a pinnacle of vocal harmonies from Wright and Gilmour, and some of Gilmour's most melodic and tone-perfect slide playing. "Time" contains possibly his best and most charactaristic solo, in fact one of the best and most charactaristic guitar solos in all of rock, and "Any Color You Like" has some stellar synth work from Wright. Mason's ride cymbal playing throughout are perfect, as is Waters' bass. There are also some great guest performances from Clarre Torry and Dick Parry, not to mention great use of choir type backing vocals, and the album is enginneered immaculately by Alan Parsons, sounding best in the original vinyl version, or the first CD. Dark Side of the Moon is an endlessly deep album that must be experienced from beginning to end, and one of the most essential recordings in all of music.
