Pink Floyd combines blues rock structures with progressive rock instrumentation and jazz flourishes to create a rich blend of atmospheric music. The Dark Side of The Moon demands uninterrupted listening and hurls listeners into a timeless and surreal trip, making it one of the most popular albums of all-time.

Originally released in 1973, The Dark Side of The Moon became Pink Floyd's first number 1 album in the US, remained on the chart for 741 weeks between 1973 and 1988. The Dark Side of The Moon features the iconic album cover artwork by Hipgnosis - a prism representing the band's stage lighting, the record's lyrics, and the request for a simple and bold design.

By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their most trippy instrumental sections, Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon.

The primary revelation of Dark Side of the Moon is what a little focus does for the band. Roger Waters wrote a series of songs about mundane, everyday details which aren't that impressive by themselves, but when given the sonic backdrop of Floyd's slow, atmospheric soundscapes and carefully placed sound effects, they achieve an emotional resonance. But what gives the album true power is the subtly textured music, which evolves from ponderous, neo-psychedelic art rock to jazz fusion and blues-rock before turning back to psychedelia. It's dense with detail, but leisurely paced, creating its own dark, haunting world.

Stereo remastered from the original analogue tapes by James Guthrie, Joel Plante, Bernie Grundman. Original UK release date: March 1973
