Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
It's just perfect. I'm utterly convinced that this is the greatest album ever. It's got the one of the best album covers. Both lyrically and musically it's incredible, 'Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.'
The Great Gig in the Sky, to me, achieves everything that was achieved in a lifetime of works by Beethoven, Bach and Mozart. I know that sounds absurd, but when I listen to the those works and The Great Gig in the Sky, I get a feeling of such an indescribable nature, that it blows my mind to think a human created it.
The way the album starts and how breathe kicks in is like the build up and breakthrough of psychedelic trip.
I never tire of listening to it. I once listened to it 9 times in a row. Something I doubt I could do with any other album.
I feel that this album isn't just a collection of songs, but a legion of songs that work together to achieve the greatness that this album does.
