About this album

The Dark Side of the Moon (titled Dark Side of the Moon in the 1993 CD edition) is a concept album by the British band Pink Floyd. It was released on March 17, 1973 in the U.S. and March 24, 1973 in the UK.

The Dark Side of the Moon builds upon previous experimentation Pink Floyd had done, especially on their album Meddle. Its themes include old age, conflict and insanity; the latter possibly inspired by the deteriorating mental state of their former band leader Syd Barrett. The album is notable for its use of musique concrète and conceptual, philosophical lyrics, as found in much of Pink Floyd’s work.

The Dark Side of the Moon spent 741 consecutive weeks (14 years) on the USA-based Billboard 200 album chart, the longest duration of any album in history. It is one of three albums tied for the claim of second highest selling album globally of all time, selling forty million or more units. In addition to its commercial success, The Dark Side of the Moon is often considered to be the group’s defining work, and is still frequently ranked by music critics as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time.

In 2006 it was voted “My Favourite Album” by viewers and listeners to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and in 2003 Rolling Stone listed The Dark Side of the Moon 43rd on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It is also #2 on the Definitive 200 Albums of All Time, a list made by the National Association of Recording Merchandisers “in celebration of the art form of the record album”.

    A lot of people must have that 1993 CD, eh? This is ridiculous. Last.fm chastises me for scrobbling Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds instead of Nick Cave "&" the Bad Seeds, Richard and Linda Thompson instead of Richard "&" Linda Thompson, Lead Belly instead of Leadbelly, but in the case of a classic recording whose name is being butchered by the majority of listeners, they say nothing. What happened to "keeping your stats clean," Last.fm?

    So everyone should look on the right side of the page, find the part that says: "Is Dark Side of the Moon misspelt? Is Pink Floyd the wrong artist for this album? Suggest a correction" and correct it to "The Dark Side OF The Moon"

    The Pink Floyd album 'The Dark Side of the Moon' is indeed a great album. I have no idea what the hell this is. As far as I know They never released an album titled 'Dark Side of the Moon'.

    There is no dark side of the moon really, as a matter of fact it's all dark.

    Se que Pink Floyd es una banda legendaria, yo creía que este álbum era un cliché del rock, pero la verdad es que vale la pena escucharlo, sin embargo creo que no tiene nada que ver con el Ok Computer de Radiohead. Pero esa es mi humilde opinión
