Dark Side of the Moon 40th 2013-03-01 09:29:04 Reply

So today is the 40th anniversary of the release of the legendary album, The Dark Side of the Moon. Too bad Pink Floyd isn't together anymore or they'd actually do something to commemorate this. Our parents are really going to feel old now.

This is awesome, I wish they would get together to do something about this. And yeah, this album is older than I am so I am sure my parents are feeling old right now.

40 years old and still one of the best albums I've ever heard.

I only have The Wall. I have heard other stuff, of course, Money, a live version of Set Controls For The Heart Of The Sun where Syd fries an egg.

I do intend to pick up some of their 80's stuff, at some point in the future, but I mainly buy Post-Punk and New Wave.

And tbh, I believe the wall was a thousand times better.

How much did you spend on it?
Because I got a copy of it on vinyl for $12.

Ah. Mines from 79.
Still looks and plays amazingly though. No skips, no scratches, barely anything wrong with the sleeve....
But whoever owned it before me put the inner sleeve to Queen's Greatest Hits in it instead of the one that came with the album.

Their 80's stuff is not that good if I'm completely honest. The Final Cut (their last official studio album) is disappointing and after the break-up I think neither Roger Waters nor David Gilmour and co. have really been able to put out a good album. A few okay songs (like High Hopes), but all in all there's not much worth checking out.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary you should listen to some music that was produced in the past decade and stop buying into industry-exploited nostalgia.

I only really got into "The Great Gig in the Sky" track. I feel like I've missed out, even though I heard the whole thing before.

*nod of approval in the general direction towards the record in the room*

We've had some crazy times together haven't we, album? I can only expect to share some more in the future.

Carry on.

I have been listening to that album a lot lately. On Last.fm, I have 22 plays of Pink Floyd in the last week, and 56 total. I have listened to Pink Floyd more than that on my iPod Touch, but since I can't scrobble when offline, it doesn't show up.

To be more specific I feel like The Wall is the best album ever made but sometimes I don't know if I really mean that or if I'm just saying it because if was my first Pink Floyd album
