5 stars Well my favorite album has always been WISH YOU WERE HERE but dude you can't forget your first love cause DARK SIDE OF THE MOON was definitely the CD that made me such a Pink Floyd fan not to mention an up growing fan of progressive music. Well i dunno i mean there are some commercial stuff about the cd mainly the length of songs but there is some proggy psychedelic stuff that will crave you for more. I've always love this Cd and for years my art teacher would play this cd when i was in High School and i loved every minute of it but for some reason my stupid self wouldn't get this album well now i finally have it in my collection and it has brought back so many fond memories. The journey starts of with a little side effect intro of the album with SPEAK TO ME then he automatciallys changes into the relaxing BREATHE which also automatcially changes to ON TO RUN which is a basic electronic instrumental but its not bad as it kinda gives an intro to TIME a very great song plus it starts with one of my favorite secions of DSOTM. This song is just awesome as it starts slowing with a nice keyboard sound/bongo beat then it explodes into a great riff with an amazing guitar solo by the oh so great DAIVD GILMOUR. i also love the BREATHE REPRISE its just so relaxing. Then comes the very awesome THE GREAT GIG IN THE SKY as to whoever can sing with pipes like those can really sing. Next is my second favorite PF song (first is obviously COMFORTABLY NUMB) MONEY!!! man this song rocks with the booming bass lines, crazy sax solo, cool keys sound, groovey drums, and fabulous GILMOUR CRAZY SOLOS ooooh this is just too good. then next comes the very relaxing US AND THEM i love how much this song is just so relaxing with great vocals, awesome background choir, not to mention another cool sax solo, then it changes automaticall to another nice instrumental with ANY COLOR YOU LIKE as this song really shows off some skills with WRIGHT and GILMOUR. then the cd concludes with two last tracks of BRAIN DAMAGE and ECLIPSE which i admit i'm not a big fan of but its not bad with some nice choir in the background. well definitely a great album i dunno if it can top WISH YOU WERE HERE but it is one fine album. Plus the musicians are great Richard Wright with his very spacy effects on keys, Roger Waters with his great booming bass and good lyric writing, Daivd Gilmour with some awesome guitar solos and a great, and Nick Mason just kicking back and letting the beats fly. now if you want to have a superb old prog collection this Cd is a must have so get some money and buy, buy, BUY!!!!
