5 stars What to say about this album that hasnīt already been said? I guess anyone who was living in the the early 70īs had a chance to feel the importance of this album first hand. That was my case. And a lot of people loved it, some just like it, a few hated, but none could really deny its importance. It was a grounbreaking work, like it or not. Personally I always had mixed feelings about it. I guess I heard it so much at the time I got a little fed up with it. My sister and and her friends were playing it non stop before I was hooked to music forever.

Looking back I see it as a very impressive work of art. The recording enginnering, the mixing and the production were so perfect is hard to believe. But letīs face it: it all woundnīt ever worked if the music inside was not as strong and inspired. And indeed I found it very strong and inspired. Probably the last album to see Pink Floyd working so well together (Waters was taking over alright, but it didnīt show yet). I guess it was their peak, although they did produce very good albums after this one. But even with all the fame and fortune and controversity The Wall produced at the time, it was no match for what The Dark Side Of The Moon did in rockīs history.

If you want to know about prog music, its roots, its importance and its best records ever made, this one is a must have. Itīs timeless music and stands so well after all these years... I really think the lyrics are as important today as they were at the time (maybe even more so). Everything worked: from the cover to the last notes of Eclipse.

So, even if I donīt play it so much today (you see, I REALLY heard it too much), even if now I absorbed every note, I still get the chills when I put in on and pay atention to it. It is that good.

One of the best records ever made, rock or otherwise.
