1 stars Scientists around the world should quit researching stuff like genetic engineering and come up with a proper explanation of why this album is so (annoyingly) popular. I like Floyd - they don't have the musicianship of bands like Genesis, but I can see what people like about The Wall, Wish You Were Here, even Division Bell. However , I cant see anything special about "Dark Side..." at all. Maybe they cover every CD, vinyl or cassette copy with some hallucinogenic substance that makes everyone a fan upon contact (which would explain why I don't like it as I have a burned copy). Seriously, almost nothing about this album interests me : not the music (the songs are very simplistic, usually based on some common chord progression that lasts throughout the track), nor the concept (we all know war and money is evil, get over it). The only stuff that kept my attention was "Us and Them" ( nice sax solo by Dick Perry) and a couple metaphors in the lyrics I liked. And did I mention this ain't even prog?
