The Dark Side of the Moon [SACD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest 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 ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
By condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush, immaculate production to their trippiest 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. Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one. The album was celebrating a total of 1,350 weeks on The Billboard 200 and Top Pop Catalog charts in Billboard magazine when Capitol Records released the 30th anniversary edition in 2003. The SACD version, as had previous digital remasterings, added space and definition to the elements of music, dialogue, and sound effects that made up the album, while the 5.1 remix expanded those improvements across multiple speakers. Original designer Storm Thorgerson contributed a new, subtly different album cover and a 20-page CD booklet that was a scrapbook of photographs and artwork associated with the album over the years.

    The Ultimate CD For Floydians

    Wow! The newly re-mastered "Dark Side" CD is great! It sounds so much clearer and crisper than previous releases. If you are a Floyd fan, or want to learn more about the greatest band that ever played, definitely get this CD! It is absolutely awesome. Everything sounds so much better: the chiming bells on "Time", the piano on "Great Gig In The Sky" and "Us And Them", the tinkling change sounds on "Money". And the instrumentals sound amazing, especially "On The Run". Plus, the really cool cover art and the interesting booklet full of relating pictures makes the deal even sweeter. And if you have a DVD that supports SACD’s, I’ve heard that the surround sound is mind-blowing. Buy this CD now. You won't regret it.

    Dark Side of the Moon [SACD]

    I cant believe someone could say that Dark Side of the Moon is slow, yeah it's drawn out, but it's good drwan out. I like hard, fast punk rock as musch as the next guy, but Pink Floyd is just genius! Dark Side of the Moon really shows off their incredible talent.

    Dark Side of the Moon [SACD]

    The Dark Side of the Moon is some of the best Pink Floyd has to offer. You'll be up all night listening to this CD over and over again. I can't wait to watch the Wizard of Oz with it! I wish I could rate this CD 6 stars!

    simply amazing!!!!

    I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound on this format. also they did a very good job with the surround distribution of the tracks. I was wondering if it is worth the money since I have already 2 formats of the same CD and obviously it is over 20 years old technology wise but it is worth every penny you will enjoy listening to it on your SACD player.

    Dark Side of the Moon gets even Better

    Same stuff as the 1993 cd, but this one's track spots are a little different. For example, the clocks in Time ring within the first 5 seconds of the song, not at 17 seconds, as compared to the 1993 edition. Put it in a SACD and you'll be blown away!! There was only one minor problem. My Xbox couldn't pick it up as a cd, but my other players did finely with it. I'm going to watch Wizard of OZ with, and I guarantee that Dark Side will be great.

    Dark Side of the Moon with connection to The Wizard of Oz.

    After the third lion roar of the Wizard of Oz movie, start this album, and through the credits the album starts out with a sound of a heartbeat, and noises, which the song is called "Speak To Me", with the credits still rolling, then you'll hear "Breathe", which kicks off the movie, and we see Dorothy running away from someone mean, and Dorothy heads back to her Kansas farm where she talks to her family members like her aunt Emily or as she calls her Aunt E.M., but as Dorothy balances her self beside a pen, but then she slips and falls, and that's when "On The Run" comes in, which meant everyone around, came to her aid, to help her up, from her fall, and during "On The Run", Dorothy and her dog Toto, sit on a hay buggie, and she looks up to the sky and sings "Over The Rainbow", but as "On The Run" ends, you'll hear a sound of clocks, which goes with the introduction to the song "Time", and in the movie, there comes a very angry looking woman on a bike, on the way to the farm, and she tells Dorothy's uncle, what her problem is, but then they go inside the house, to find out that Toto had bit her, and Dorothy tried to explain what had happened, but the lady, would'nt have no part of the explaination, which made matters worse for Dorothy, and you'll hear the words of the first verse, "Ticking away, the moments that make up a dull day", which meant that the mean lady, had no right for what had happened, making Dorothy cry, with hurtful feelings of Toto being taking away by the lady, but as the song, leads on, Toto sneaks out of the basket, which was on the back of the mean lady's bike, and escapes back to the farm house, jumping through Dorothy's window, and they make a unthinkable decision to run away from their home, and they go to a house nearby, and then it was a house of a magician, and they find a man sitting near a camp fire, and cooking hot dogs, and Toto snatches one from him, which Dorothy corrects him, telling Toto that it was'nt polite, but as they go into the house, "Time" draws to a conclusion, which leads into "Breathe Reprise", and after they left the magicians property, which kicks off to the song "The Great Gig In The Sky", realizing that there's a tornado coming, so her aunt Emily looked everywhere for her, knowing that the tornado was coming, and she did'nt see her, so her, and the rest of the family went into the shelter, and Dorothy then returns to the house to find her, and there was no sign of her, and then again with the tornado coming, she goes into the shelter, screaming out for her, and she also tried to open the door, but it has been locked, so Dorothy ran back into the house, and then into her room, which fell onto her bed, falling asleep for a minute, but then waking up finding everything floating through the air, with cows, debris, and people waving hello, but now she realizes why, everybody is floating, that she realizes that they were inside the tornado, and she told Toto the same thing, but as she looked out the window, she saw the mean lady who took Toto from her, and then she was revealed as The Wicked Witch, but as "The Great Gig In The Sky" draws to a close, as Dorothy starts walking to the door, but as she opens the door, which chages the movie into color, that's where the song "Money" begins, knowing that Dorothy has arrived in Oz, which she looks around, and tells Toto, which is one of the famous lines "Toto, I think were are not in Kansas". After that, she sees a pink bubble coming toward her, and out of the bubble came a beautiful woman, dressed in a pink wardrobe with a wand, but as "Money" draws to a close, which leads "Us and Them", as the munckins were greeting Dorothy, and they danced and singed, until they see a big shock appearing which appears to be a red smoke, which marks the appearence of the Wicked Witch, which the pa
