it's fantastic record, Pink Floyd is just so different than other bands and that's why people just love them
But i still prefer Animals. maybe it's because that was my first introducion to pink floyd i dont know or because of animals motives too

yes please

This album is phenomenal. It manages to say a lot while still keeping everything about it beautiful. I don't have many words to say about the overall production (not because I'm blown away or anything, but because I'm an illiterate idiot) but the instrumentals are some of the best rock I've heard.

The songwriting is simplistic, but it's still pretty, I guess. Not much to read into, mostly everything said can be understood from a first read, but it still compliments the albums theme ... read more

Sometimes is strange to listen only one track from "The Dark Side of The Moon", the entire album(all the tracks) is a masterpiece.

Just... Perfect
NR
This album is perfection I think. This was an inspiration for a lot of experimental work by future rock groups. It's true psychedelic music topped only maybe by some Beatles releases. Honestly, some friends I have wanna get stoned to shitty rap that "I don't understand the true meaning of" like XXXTentacion, but why get high to that mindless garbage instead of to true musical goodness like this.
As lead singer David Gilmour says in the hit song "Money", 'Don't give me that ... read more

Although TDSOTM can be solid and gorgeous at times, it’s far from my favorite Pink Floyd album. I don’t know guys, this is the greatest album of all time? I except this to me to bring me into an all new dimension or whatever. I heard so many better Prog albums, heck even better Pink Floyd albums. So yeah, this album is kinda overrated. ( Also, I totally didn’t rip-off KIDWITHGUNs review)

1.) Us And Them
2.) Time
3.) The Great Gig In The Sky

Honestly, I went into this thing thinking I'd probably find it pretentious.

Boy, was I wrong.

Every time I hear the Great Gig in the Sky I can’t help but shiver and feel so weird and fuzzy. I don’t visit this album often, but when I do, it feels so renewing.

-transitions
-a majority of the songs are (except On the Run and Any Color You Like) fantastic

-interludes are boring
-replayability value isn’t that high as much anymore for me

So I am listening and reviewing these albums for a school project, which is why I am caring now, but other from that this is my first album I heard from them so far. This was a haunting experience that does have this grand presentation of a galaxy. I know this has aged a lot, but this album still blows my mind how these kinds of sounds even existed in the early 1970's man. Who other from Throbbing Gristle made music like this that would lead to influence many.
NR
As considered the most iconic album of all time. I have to give the rating it's best

Perfectly crafted musically and lyrically.
The instrumentations are hauting and beautiful, the lyrics on this on album talk about the different sides of human personality in such a magnificent way.
Even the purely instrumental tracks are great, they don't seem like filler at all, they perfectly fit inside the album thematic and they help to build that perfect atmosphere that the whole album has.

It is pretty cliche, even perceived laziness to hail this as an amazing album, but why would it be called anything else? Probably my favourite album of all time, I listen to this thing at leat once or twice a month. Beautiful from back to front, the album encapsulates everything that makes Pink Floyd's music so brilliant, transcending progressive rock into a universal odyssey of sound and genius. For me, it strikes the perfect balance between experimental ambition and grounded accessibility, ... read more

Solid

And as gorgeous as Dark Side may be, I was expecting something that would truly blow me away, thrust me into a different dimension, or a reason for me to call it "The greatest of all time".

Best: On The Run, Brain Damage, Eclipse

Weakest: Us and Them

I find myself nearly falling asleep to the random assortment of noises throughout this album which are somehow classified as music. What's in between is actually pretty good. I spent a long time trying to figure out what the fuss is about and I never found it.

I'm actually surprised I managed to get this far in life without hearing anything from an album as highly praised as this, but I am definitely glad that I finally got around to listening to it.
To be honest, the first three tracks didn't really impress me. The following seven, however, I thought were really great, with quite a few of them being amazing. Really, my biggest problem with this album is that I feel like it was over-hyped for me. I keep hearing about how this is one of the greatest ... read more

Well-produced, sonically exceptional and cohesive, this albums is an instant classic and, although I find it kinda overrated cause there was better prog rock back then, you can't deny how rich this sounds.

Also, us and them is a 10/10

Overrated in terms of Pink Floyd's discography, but still amazingly recorded and produced, extremely textured and a very cohesive listen. Classic

Speak To Me/Breathe, Time, The Great Gig In The Sky, Money, Us and Them, Any Colour You Like, Brain Damage, Eclipse

Original Score: 100/100

BY GOD THIS IS VERY GOOD. The album that marked a before and after in the career of Pink Floyd, I could hear more than a thousand times and I would not get tired of the melodies that go through each song and each moment. Experimentation is what he earns on this record and despite the fact that at the first moment I heard it, music became rare, and finally I understood the concept and the album in general. 10000% recommended, I know some may not like this music but ... read more

There's a reason why a cliché becomes a cliché. Pink Floyd's seminal album The Dark Side Of The Moon is to rock what Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue is to jazz - perhaps not a perennial hipster favorite or crowd pleasure, but inexorably embedded into the DNA of all rock music to follow, joining hands with the likes of Radiohead's OK Computer and The Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground and Nico. It's rich sonic textures and moody atmosphere well compliment the introspective (if a ... read more

This is a nearly perfect album. I do not know how to explain this album. The Song 'The Great Gig in the sky' is one of my favorite songs of all time. The only song I do not like as much as the other 8 songs is the last song 'Brain Damage'.

Recommend this to everybody.

I still fail to see how I could get 2500 albums into my escapade into music without listening to what is perhaps the most iconic and widely praised album of all time.

I know so many people who consider this the greatest piece of modern music ever made and now I understand why. This album is just so magnificent in every way. I just listened to Spiderland and that album made me feel so dark and cold, but this album does the polar opposite. I felt like I was on top of the world by the time Great ... read more

This will forever be one of my favorite albums. Each track flows amazingly into the next and the production is just eargasm inducing. I love this album. Truly tied with Wish You Were Here as their best album in my honest opinion. I feel like this album must be listened to front to end without skips. There is truly no track on here that I dislike.

Fav Tracks: All of them

Overplayed doesn't mean overrated.
I would say this is their more accomplished work. It is paced extremely well, flows like an unninterrupted experience but each song still shines own its own merits, incorporates different instrumental elements with expert precision to craft diverse moods while staying centered in the overall theme of ephemerality and mortality.

GO LISTEN TO: Us and Them.

Floyd’s best and one of the best (if not THE best) of all time. The sound is incredible, the vocals are great and the lyrics are insightful. In short, it gets everything as close to perfect as we’ll probably ever see. A must-listen for absolutely anyone.

Favourite Track: Time
Least Favourite Track: On the Run (if I had to pick)

The. Best. Album. Of. All. Time.

Seriously, this is my favorite album. All songs are just so clever and well written, and most importantly, extremely relevant to this day. The album addresses common problems in life in such an amazing way, it's just insane. I understand many people find this album overrated, but it's not. The people who say this are just those that hate everything that's been mainstream for a too long of a time. Incredible album.
