The Dark Side Of The Moon (2011 Remaster)
On this day in 1973, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON went gold in the U.S.; it would spend an unprecedented 14 years on the Billboard chart. You'll find topics like greed and madness if you parse the lyrics of Pink Floyd's definitive album, but the remarkable sonic textures here go way beyond words. The cash registers on “Money,” the languid sax solo on “Us And Them” and session singer Clare Torry's wordless vocals on "The Great Gig In The Sky” are but a few of the sublime moments on this set – there may be no atmosphere on the moon, but there's plenty of it here. Produced with state-of-the-art technology (and engineer Alan Parsons), THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON rewards close listening, and the 2011 remaster brings even more of the legendary album's magic and mystery to the surface.
