Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated
The classic Pink Floyd masterpiece receives the multichannel reissue treatment
from Analogue Productions. How lucky we all are to hear this legendary studio
recording realize its full potential. The SACD also of course includes a
stunning stereo mix. And as this is a hybrid disc, the album is of course also
playable on a standard CD player.
This is Pink Floyd at its collective finest, with everyone contributing. David
Gilmour took a huge chunk of the music — writing, laying down the chord
progressions on "Breathe," "Time," and "Any Colour You Like," plus the singing
on the album's best songs, Water conceeding to David's far superior voice.
Gilmour also pumped out what would later be hailed as some of rock's most
influential lead-guitar riffs on "Money" and "Brain Damage."
By all industry standards, The Dark Side Of The Moon is a phenomenon. Known for
its complex instrumental textures, the album firmly established Pink Floyd as
one of the most innovative bands in rock history. A concept album, its themes
explore conflict, greed, time, and mental illness, the latter partly inspired by
the deteriorating health of founding member Syd Barrett, who left in 1968.
The Dark Side of the Moon produced two singles: "Money" and "Us and Them." The
album topped the Billboard chart for a week, and remained on the chart for 741
weeks from 1973 to 1988. Following a change in how Billboard counts sales in
2009, it re-entered the chart and has since appeared for over 900 weeks. With
estimated sales of more than 45 million, it is Pink Floyd's bestselling album
and one of the bestselling worldwide.
