5 stars Dark Side Of The Moon is a genuine masterpiece and is one of a select group that is worthy of a 5 star rating. It has been one of my favourite albums since i bought it as a teenager when it was released in 1973. One great memory I have from that time is of listening to DSOM from start to finish when the late, great John Peel played the album on his late night radio programme. As far as I'm aware, this was the first time an album had been played in its entirety on British radio.

Some PA reviews have criticised DSOM for not being prog. That may well be the case but it is one of the finest albums of all time, regardless of musical genre. Everything about the album says quality, from the music itself to the iconic Hipgnosis cover. DSOM has stood the test of time and does not sound dated, as some '70s albums do. The concept, of various stages of human life (consumerism, mental illness, conflict and death) , remains relevant in the present age.

In summary, an essential album that should be in everyone's collection.
