  • 1973!
  • This is an album that takes a while to set in, much like any complex work of art. After listening to it many times, you finally realize it's one of, if not the, greatest album of all time. [2]
  • The best album of all time [2]. If you like hidden sounds, meanings and stuff, this album is for you! @nathanshaw: this album is about madness (in the sense of "getting lunatic"). The dark side of the moon was at that time an allusion to getting lunatic, and this album is all about things that make people lunatics: money (fame), the passage of time, war and death. But this was too much spoiler for one single comment! It is a lot more fun to go read the lyrics and the history of the album recording and find the meanings for yourself!
  • I haven't heard this album in ages, I almost forgot how legendary it is.
  • This is an album I keep coming back to. Just in case I have missed something that everybody else seems to find. I really still don't get it. Maybe if I listen to it when I'm off my face something might come to me?

  • The thing that makes this such a unique album is that it's overall a very complex album yet at the same time it's a very accessible one. It's also the record that got me into Pink Floyd and it used to be my favorite album ever for a long time a couple of years ago, while now I seem to prefer Wish You Were Here and The Piper over this one. Anyway, this still remains a timeless masterpiece that deserves all the praise it gets.
