Summary
Pink Floyd inadvertently designed their commercial breakthrough with Dark Side of the Moon, by condensing the sonic explorations of Meddle to actual songs and adding a lush and immaculate production to their trippiest instrumental sections. 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 and everyday details which are not 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 and neo-psychedelic art rock to jazz fusion and blues-rock before turning back to psychedelic. It is dense with detail, but paced leisurely, creating its own dark and 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. -- Editorial Review provided by Stephen Thomas Erlewine for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
