PYHOF: Celebrate the 40 Years of The Dark Side of the Moon with Pink Floyd

There’s no denying it. Pink Floyd is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Psychedelic rhythms and space rock influences are few of the things that this progressive English band was known for. Put your headphones now and get lost in Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

It’s been 40 years since the debut of Pink Floyd’s critically and commercially acclaimed album “Dark Side of the Moon”. The progressive rock band that featured the musical talents of members Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, David Gilmour and Nick Mason was a moving force in the 1970s music scene.

“Dark Side of the Moon” featured philosophical questions on different ideas like society, greed, life and death and almost everything in between. The album’s commercial success was paired up with a great following of fans.

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” was considered by many as the band’s pinnacle achievement in their recording career and it’s with good reason. The creative force behind the album weaved heavy hitting songs that spoke to the audiences and society. The famous album cover alone is a figurative representation of unity as light passing through the prism of society, thus getting diffracted as a result.

Listen on as Pink Floyd brings you to a place where psychedelic rhythms collide with poetic lyrics with “Dark Side of the Moon.”

    Dark side of the moon (no doubt a brilliant album love it) was not with bandmember Syd Barrett but with David Gilmour (also shown on your pictures) sorry had to point this out as I think the man is one of the most brilliant guitar players and also as his guitarplaying and singing are monumental as the sound of Pink Floyd.

    @bobby_sekeris still, we have to take Syd Barrett's contribution into mind when we talk about the overall success of the band. I agree with you on that, Gilmour is instrumental to the band's success and signature style in music.

    It's true that Syd Barrett was an inspiration especially on that album, (as he just couldn't cope at that moment) Thankfully David Gilmour was there to fill his shoes. Thank you for your article :-) Made me wanna listen to the album again

    This is, of course, one of the best albums in the history of rock (and maybe I´ll go a little further by saying one of the best music albums of the XX century).
    @bobby_sekeris I think that Gilmour didn´t fill Barrett´s shoes, he brought his own shoes to the band.
    Thank you for the article @cheeo

    @bobby_sekeris @holgardo really makes you want to stick those earbuds and give the whole album a good listening in one seating don't you? The clang of the cash register in Money is the start of a good day for me.
