Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
If there are a handful of albums in the rock universe that deserve a bells-and-whistles DVD treatment, Dark Side of the Moon is clearly among them. In the '70s and '80s, the classic 1973 album by Pink Floyd remained on the Billboard 200 for a staggering 741 consecutive weeks, a record that will likely stand forever. Echoing themes of alienation, paranoia, and death, it is a dreamy, often trancelike tour through the subconscious of Floyd lyricist Roger Waters. This 84-minute DVD offers a track-by-track look at the making of Dark Side of the Moon, featuring interviews with band members Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright, plus rare acoustic versions of "Breathe" and "Brain Damage." For those fans interested in the story behind the crafting of one of rock's true landmark records, this is the equivalent of ambrosia. Tracks are as follows:
  • Introduction
  • Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
  • Echoes
  • Breathe
  • On the Run
  • Time
  • The Great Gig in the Sky
  • Money
  • Us and Them
  • Brain Damage
  • Eclipse

    Floyd Lives On.

    I just watched this ''The Dark Side of the Moon'' docu on SBS here in Australia and it is a no hesitation purchase. Expertly crafted with all the Floyd members and more. Wonderfully produced sequences bring new meaning to Pink Floyds arguable 'crest of fame' during the 70's. I was transfixed during viewing and cannot wait for its arrival to watch it like I do with the CD - again, and again, and again. Brilliant job by Mathew Longfellow and his team. It will sit beside 'The Wall'. Thats two for the collection DVD Floyd collection - I want more!

    A perspective

    Finally Roger Waters and David Gilmour agree on something...well at least a few things when it comes to the making of this classic. I was pleased to see that there was no sniping, just observations about the making of the album. On whole it was informative and proves that the best ideas sometimes evolve from simple things. David Gilmour and Roger Waters on guitar and vocals was also a very enjoyable piece of work. I felt the only flaw is minimal input from Nick Mason and no admission (that I can find) that the song ''on the run'' was credited to Nick Mason as a present from Roger Waters.
