to me, dark side of teh moon was about creating a prog album, whereas wish you were here was an album based around wish you were here the song.

SOYCD was being played live before the Wish you were here recording sessions even started. So there goes your theory.This Message Edited On 02.12.06

I'm listening to 'Any Colour You Like' right now and it is simply an amazing song. I love how 'Us and Them' goes directly into this song, awesome stuff.

I've now gone through this whole album three times today. Time, Money, Brain Damage, and Eclipse are all amazing songs. The only reason that this doesn't get a 5/5 is because On the Run doesn't do anything for me.

5/5 without question, one of the greatest albums of all time.

As usual, a classy review. In fact Med, it's probably the best one I've read on this site. My only gripe is that it wasn't longer!
As for DSOTM - my third fav floyd album behind Animals and The Wall.

It seems like no one likes this album the best out of all of Pink Floyds albums. The same goes for me, I prefer 'Piper' over this but as of now I think I've been listening to this more than any other Floyd album that I own.

I think The Dark Side of the Moon, is a good album, worthy of four out of five stars. It may have been their height as a group, yes, but their lyrical height, without a doubt didn't come till 1975-1979, especially with Animals. With that being said, I do think The Dark Side of the Moon is very overrated, and is talked about way too much. Musically, both Animals and Wish You Were Here are lightyears better. You listen to the solos in The Dark Side of the Moon, and then listen to the guitar in 'Dogs' and 'Pigs (Three Different Ones)'. Not only is the music better in the subsequent albums, the lyrics are so much better, it's not even funny. Don't get me wrong, it's a good album, but it's my 5th or 6th favorite

1. Animals
2. The Wall
3. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
4. Wish You Were Here
5. The Dark Side of the Moon
6. The Final CutThis Message Edited On 03.02.06

Fifth, I somewhat agree with you. I like Animals the most, followed by the Wall, but then (I guess I'm weird) its probably The Division Bell, Wish You Were Here, Darkside, then Momentary Lapse...

i take this out from time to time and its still good but it gets a little old after constantly listening to it

IMO darkside is one of the most overrated albums ever.

I don't think it's overrated, it's just that it's such a universally accepted album, that the magic wears off for some people.

Every sound effect just adds to the concept of each song - atmosphere. People are still impressed today, not because they're stoned, but how well-composed, refined, perfect the album is. It's not a stoner jam session, and the Floyd weren't under the influence when they made this.
Oh, and it's not just hippies who love it. Maybe you didn't notice, oh of course you didn't, you're just making stupid assumptions, but the concept of the album is how grim, short, greedy, and dull life is or can be. Not really hippy-like, is it?
