5 stars One of the all-time great albums - prog or otherwise.

Dark Side of the Moon, is there a person in the western world who hasn't heard of it? It is the archetypal rock classic topping 'best album ever' lists even to the current day. Dark Side is not nearly as progressive as many of Floyd's other works and many including myself don't even consider it their best. But what it lacks in progressiveness it makes up for in sheer cohesiveness and accessibility. It is this cohesive and clear message that what set the bar for creative mainstream rock indefinitely and led to the exponential success of the Pink Floyd brand. It has been discussed in depth before that this album had an almost tangible and measurable social impact, probably a handful of artists throughout history could lay claim to such an accolade.

This is one of those essential albums that every modern music fan must own, if only for historical importance.
