Classic Perfection | Reviewer: Michelle Kissel------ About the album Dark side of the moon performed by Pink Floyd
This was the first cd I ever purchased. I played it in my room, in the dark over and over and over. Not only does it hold so many memoriies for me, but the music itself, a mix between classic and rock, is incomparable to any album ever.. The background vocals, the instrument choices, and the sound effects are truly amazing! Pink Floyd has and always will be my favorite group. This album and The Wall (the first LP I ever purchased), will always be my favorites.

One of the more under-rated Pink Floyd albums: a transition to the Dark Side | Reviewer: Eugene------ About the album Obscured by clouds performed by Pink Floyd
First of all: I am aware that this was a rushed job and probably their mind was on "The Dark Side of the Moon", and probably Roger Waters took a bit of a holiday and was not as domineering in this one. I do not know this for sure, but David Gilmour wrote some remarkably good lyrics in "Childhood's end".
The album starts with a quite futuristic beat "Obscured by clouds"(which would reappear in DSOM) and a slide guitar trademark of Mr. Gilmour. The song feels too short, almost a sketch. They were pressed for time and probably Barbet Schroeder (the director of the movie) thought that it was Ok.
"When you're in" feels again like a nice sketch that could have been developed further, which brings back a rather "heavy rock" feel to Pink Floyd which only appeared before in "The Nile Song" in More.
This album revisits More, Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother and Meddle. It feels almost as an epitaph to the "Old Pink Floyd" (gongs, experimentation, underground) their last experiment prior to the mega-success.
The compositions are beautiful in this album. "Burning bridges" features warm and soft melodies, great singing. The theme is revisited in "Mudmen" which seems a great showcase of both Rick Wright and David Gilmour.
Roger Waters only penned on his own "Free four" which got quite a lot of airing in the US, very radio friendly. I guess that the dispute of the band with the film company didn't allow it to be a proper single. Which may explain why this album has been so under-rated in my opinion.
I feel this album a quite sad album (despite the energy of "The gold's in the...", again very rocky number and catchy), since is the end of an era. Some could argue that this album and their concert in Pompeii said goodbye to "Careful with that axe", "A saucerful of secrets", to embrace their new successful status.
In fact, "Absolutely curtains" has a similar feel to the very beginning of "Sine on you Crazy Diamond" and ends up with the tribe that appears in the movie.
Not as good soundtrack as "More" was (in relation to the film), but a great album on its own.

MASTERPIECE "The Wall" | Reviewer: Michelle LeVeaux------ About the album The Wall performed by Pink Floyd
In a word, as displayed in my title. "The Wall" is a MASTERPIECE. Still, to this day, everytime I hear any song from it, I'm beyond impressed. I get chills up my spine. Oh, there they go. Yes! Yes!
The Greatest Hits Album Of The Decade!! | Reviewer: Sean Daswani------ About the album Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd performed by Pink Floyd
I like the compilation album. It makes me feel like I'm in a tour of Pink Floyd in a museum.
This album covers all of their 14 studio albums from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" their debut album to "The Division Bell" their last album.
All the songs on the compilation album are crossfaded or segued from one song to the next without a pause like on the radio.
We are missing some great songs to complete the compilation album like:
An edited version of the "Atom Heart Mother Suite", "If", "Summer '68", "Fat Old Sun" & "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" from 1970's "Atom Heart Mother".
"Grandchester Meadows" from 1969's double album "Ummagumma".
"Welcome To The Machine" & "Have A Cigar" from 1975's "Wish You Were Here".
Interstellar Overdrive from 1967's "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn".
"Fearless", "A Pillow Of Winds" & "San Tropez" from 1971's "Meddle".
An edited version of "Dogs", an edited version of "Pigs (3 Different Ones) & an edited version of Parts 1 & 2 of "Pigs On The Wing" from 1977's "Animals".
Disc 1 begins the album or the 1st half of the tour with "Astromony Domine", then we go into the single "See Emily Play". Both songs from 1967.
Next stop, we are headed to "The Happiest Days Of Our Lives" making up the hit single "Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)" from their 1979 double album, "The Wall".
Then, we go to "Echoes" from their 1971 album "Meddle". It's a edited version that actually cuts from 23 minutes to 16 minutes, that's 7 minutes missing from the album version.
We then go into "Hey You" that opens the 2nd disc of their 1979 double album "The Wall".
Then, we teleported into 1994 with their album "The Division Bell" for an edited version of the instrumental "Marooned" which contains the 1st half of it.
Next, We are going into "The Great Gig In The Sky" from 1973's album "The Dark Side Of The Moon".
Then we go into the Syd Barrett era with the song "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" from 1968's "A Saucerful Of Secrets".
We headed back to 1973's "The Dark Side Of The Moon" for their song "Money".
Next up, we are going back to 1994 to the song "Keep Talking" from "The Division Bell" album.
Then, we travel back to 1977 with their song "Sheep" on their album "Animals". It appeared on "A Collection Of Great Dance Songs" in 1981. But on this compilation album it has an early fade-out.
Finally, Disc 1 or the 1st half of the tour closes as we end up with the 1987 song "Sorrow" off their album "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason".
Then, we sit down & have a snack during the break. After that, we go back to walking & listening to music.
Disc 2 or the 2nd half of the tour starts off when we travel to 1975 with an edited version of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" on their album "Wish You Were Here". It just has Parts I-VII without Parts VIII & IX.
Next, we are going into "Dark Side" as we hear the ticking & chiming sounds of all the clocks of the song "Time". This song also has the reprise of the song "Breathe (In The Air)".
Then, we are headed into the Roger Waters era with the song "The Fletcher Memorial Home" from 1983's "The Final Cut". It also includes segull sounds at the end.
Next, we return to 1979 with their song "Comfortably Numb" from the 2nd disc of "The Wall". It contains the ending of "Bring The Boys Back Home".
Then, we go into "When The Tigers Broke Free" from the soundtrack to the 1982 film "The Wall". The song made it's appearance on the 2004 re-release of "The Final Cut".
We then go into the next track on the album, the edited version of the song "One Of These Days" from 1971's "Meddle". I also notice the part of song has the Doctor Who riff at the 2 minute mark.
Next stop, we going back into "Dark Side" with the song "Us & Them".
Then, we hear the backwards keyboard note that opens the next song in the collection "Learning To Fly" from 1987's "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason".
We then travel into 1967 with the song "Arnold Layne" from 1971's "Relics".
Then, we come to the next song on the album, "Wish You Were Here" from 1975's "Wish You Were Here". It contains the radio intro at the beginning of the song.
We are going to back to the Syd Barrett era with the last track from "A Saucerful Of Secrets" is "Jugband Blues". It also contains the hidden track at the last 47 seconds.
Then, we go to the last track "High Hopes" which is an edited version of it from 1994's "The Division Bell". It has church bells sound effect at the beginning & the end of the song & it also has the outro slide guitar solo shortened after the words "Forever and ever".
Disc 2 closes the album or finishes the 2nd half of the whole tour of Pink Floyd's carrer with the last track "Bike" from 1967's "Piper". The song also has a bicycle bell sound effect at the beginning of the song.
Finally, we all go home after having so much fun with this compilation album in the museum.
I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan. I love it!!!
speechless. | Reviewer: colourmemaggie------ About the album Dark side of the moon performed by Pink Floyd
No matter how much time goes by or how many new types of music emerge, this album will stay forever as my favourite. Noone can deny the powerful message and beautiful music of Dark Side. It's truly awe inspiring what those men created, an everlasting story told through harmonious chords and progressions, that each and every human being can relate to. I have never been more in love with music this much, ever.
God's Music | Reviewer: greg scott------ About the album The piper at the gates of dawn performed by Pink Floyd
There is no better album ever.The lyrics, music & especially Syd's quintessential english voice Make this an album that stands the test of time.
There has never been anyone like Syd Barrett & when he left Pink Floyd he took his humor, madness & talent with him. I could listen to this album forever. I just wish Syd didn't have to go through what he did to get this. But after you write a record like this, what else is there?
What do you do next. "Brilliant" is what he was, God bless him!!
The best of the best | Reviewer: Rafael------ About the album Dark side of the moon performed by Pink Floyd
Definitely a master peace in everyway. Lyrics, melodies, effects, voices everything fitts in such perfection that lead to believe it was created in a moment of ilumination of everyone. Something supernatural. Sometimes I think...are they going to die some day, or they are just go back to their planets? One of them has returned already.

Best progressive rock album ever | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the album Animals performed by Pink Floyd
People criticize this album for being 'dark'.Rick Wright hated it and I'm not sure if Gilmour was fond of it since he never performed any numbers from this album in the post-Waters Floyd or solo concerts.
But it is by far the best progressive rock album ever recorded.
The album slams capitalism and British moralist Mary Whitehouse.Waters called exactly what happened to the world's economy in 2008-2009 in 1977.
I own this album on CD,MP3,vinyl,cassette and 8-track and I still listen to it regularly.
