Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dark Side of the Moon, originally released in 1973, is one of those albums that is discovered anew by each generation of rock listeners. This complex, often psychedelic music works very well because Pink Floyd doesn't rush anything; the songs are mainly slow to mid-tempo, with attention paid throughout to musical texture and mood. The sound effects on songs like "On the Run," "Time" and especially "Money" (with sampled sounds of clinking coins and cash registers turned into rhythmic accompaniment) are impressive, especially when we remember that 1973 was before the advent of digital recording techniques. This is probably Pink Floyd's best-known work, and it's an excellent place to start if you're new to the band. --Genevieve Williams

Like others, the music is great.

Like others the packaging isn't.

They included multiple versions on DVD and duplicated everything on the 2 DVDs to the blue-ray. A bit overkill but fine. What I found odfd was that the live CD and the extras/demos we not on the DVD and blu-ray? The DVD is almost 3/4s empty in space.

As mentioned elsewhere, the 4 discs at the bottom popped out [well 2 of mine] but mine weren't scratched. 2 others came in cardboard sleeves. Why sleeves?

Why bother with some of the extras. Marbes? Scarf is cheap and small.

What gets worse is that the next two box sets will probably contain similar extras and less music - even possibly no blu-ray for The Wall. If a blu-ray is included on this one, why not the others?

I bought this album having no idea what to expect other than the fact that it was made in 1973 and the artist Pink Floyd was a progressive rock group.
42 minutes and 10 seconds later I was left speechless, blown away, and in utter amazement. This album left me almost with a whole new outlook on life. The lyrics, vocals, instruments, performances......mindblowing. Track 3 "Time" in my opinion may just be the absolute single greatest recording I have ever heard. 7:06 of musical brilliance and genius.
Upon first listen for me, this CD blew away Black Sabbath, Metallica, AC/DC, Van Halen, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Soundgarden, and every other "rock" group I'd ever heard other then Led Zeppelin and thats. And if I had to choose between Floyd or Zeppelin upon their careers the edge undoubtedly goes to Floyd. Zeppelin could never match this CD. "Stairway To Heaven" is vastly overrated and cant match up with "Time".
"Dark Side Of The Moon" is not just a rock CD. Name a musical genre other than pop, rap and the hard core punk/metal which should not even be considered music when you have people lipsinking and the amazingly awful American Idol. DSOTM is rock, blues, and jazz depending on which song you are playing. And did I mention the sound production??? Outstanding.
In conclusion, "Dark Side Of The Moon" is to music what "The Godfather" is to movies. An epic, timeless, must-have CD.

This is one of the releases I was waiting for with baited breath. I am a major Floyd Fanatic. And since getting stuff on SACD, I couldn't wait for some Floyd titles to come out. That being said...here's the review.
This is probably one of the best SACD transfers yet. The sounds are crisp and clear. The seperation of the channels is fantastic. And the music is great.
The heartbeat on Speak to Me/Breathe gets you in the right mood. It sounds like it is coming from your body. Then you get to On The Run. Songs like this are the reason we have surround sound. You can hear the guy running around the room. The helicoptor seems to circle around the room. And the air rushes around. Then you get to Time. The Alarm clocks sound like they are right in the room. You can hear the resonance on the grandfather bell. Then you get to Great Gig in the Sky and you can hear the range of Clare Torrey's voice. Then on money, you can hear the change circling from speaker to speaker. Everything about this CD is fantastic. It seems that Pink Floyd were ahead of their time when they made this one.
It's really a shame that Amazon only has 5 stars because this one rates a 10.
One more thing. Since I think Wish You Were Here and Animals were both recorded in Quadrophonic, it would be nice if they would do those next. Those are another pair of albums that would lend themselves to 5.1

Format: Audio CD
very few albums have stood the test of time like dark side of the moon. it was a "new thing " when it was first released. i don't consider myself a true pink floyd fanatic but i do know great works of art and this album is one of them. there are no highs and no lows on it. even the cover is great. it just seems to flow along at a pace thats very mid tempo and is very easy on the ears. that said the opening of money does seem to grab you and insist you listen. time is another one. from the opening tick tock to the bells ringing to the bass coming in.the song quite simply makes you sit up and listen. from start to finish it's a great album. breathe, us and them,the great gig in the sky all great ,great songs. a must have. 33 years after it's release it still sounds great and i've never tired of it.if by chance you're new to the "FLOYD" make this your first purchase and see what all the talk is about. 5 BIG STARS *****

I own several versions of this (on LP & CD) but I believe this is my favorite. The packaging is unique, with a deluxe booklet containing lyrics, photos, and artwork; 5 very cool cards; and, a nice black box that houses it all. As far as the sound is concerned, there's always been different opinions among floydians regarding the various editions, but I would rank this at least the equal to any of the other versions. The 20th Anniversary Edition was lovingly remastered by engineer Doug Sax. Not many people are aware that the original release was several generations removed from the master tapes, according to David Gilmour, so this is a big improvement. One caution: if you buy this CD used, make sure the outer box is not beat up, if such things matter to you, as it tends to show wear very easily.
