3 stars This album caused that progressive rock went into mainstream in early 70. Money was solid hit and Pink Floyd proved that conceptual albums can be acceptable by wide audience. First of all this record sounds great. The production is massive and clear. In 1973 Pink Floyd were beyond competition if we talk about production. But if we talk about compositions I think any ELP, Jethro Tull or Van Der Graaf Generator album of early 70's is much better than this release. Dark Side Of The Moon IS progressive but sometimes guys try to fill lot of space with their well known instrumental trips. Apart from this we have bluesy hard rock Money which isn't something ambitious, R'N'B vocals in Great Gig In The Sky that make my liver yell and complete sensless fillers like On The Run or Eclipse (which was base for that torutre The Wall I guess). Breathe and Time are two very strong tunes on this album + Brain Damage is quite good song. The best musician in Pink Floyd is David Gilmour. His guitar work on this release is mostly bluesy. So not far from the early 70's standards. ELP were light years ahead of Pink Floyd at the time. Dark Side Of The Moon is overrated prog album but for that production is worth of listening.
