5 stars Here I am after a long, long time of absence, for another review; This time, Pink Floyd's Masterpiece "The Dark Side of the Moon".

I can't pick highlights on this album, but If I had to choose my favorite tracks I'd say Time, The Great Gig in the Skye and Brain Damage/Eclipse. But I love them all a lot, it's a great album, probably my favorite Progressive album and my favorite Pink Floyd album. Another thing I like about this album is the transitions, those instrumentals with lots of sound effects and stuff like that such as Speak to Me and On The Run. The lyrics are fantastic, I highlight Breathe, Time and Brain Damage/Eclipse when it comes to lyrics.

Eclipse is a fantastic way to close the album... But does it really close the album? I mean, if you notice, almost in the end of Eclipse there's that heartbeat that you can hear on Speak to Me, the first track. You surely know that 'The Dark Side of the Moon' means the bad side of things, the dark side of things, but maybe there's a hidden message behind that similarity between the heartbeats on Eclipse and Speak to Me, maybe that means the endless circle of life? If you look closely to the lyrics, it actually makes sense...

This album is getting a 5 just because I can't give it a 6.

Well... The time is gone, this review is over... thought i'd something more to say...
