Buy “Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of The Moon – Music” Online

Dark Side Of The Moon

I have not less than 7 different versions of this seminal recording on various media, to include mint MFSL vinyl and Gold CD versions as well as the the Immersion set, and I have to say this is the best of the bunch! The remastering is just incredible. James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman have breathed new life into this incredible work! In some ways it is like listening to DSOTM for the first time – that is the true litmus test of a remaster. Because I owned so many quality versions of this classic, I was a bit reluctant to buy the 2016 release. Now I have two copies, one to listen to and one to preserve to posterity – it is that good. Someday the grandkids will need to hear this work as it was intended to be heard! Kudos to Pink Floyd music for this remastered series and kudos to the artists who honored Pink Floyd’s great work! For those of us who cherish vinyl, this is a rare gift! Check it out!

Product description DARK SIDE OF THE MOON was a benchmark record. It turned the musical world on its ear with a hitherto unseen combination of sounds, and changed things considerably for Pink Floyd. For this project, Pink Floyd resurrected older and unfinished numbers, some of which came from the multitude of soundtracks the band members had previously worked on. The film ZABRISKIE POINT, a study of American materialism from a foreigner’s perspective, provided /Us and Them” (originally titled “”The Violence Sequence””). Waters rewrote “”Breathe”” after its appearance on his and avant-garde composer Ron Geesin’s score for THE BODY” 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 1. Speak To Me/Breathe 2. On The Run 3. Time 4.

Dark Side Of The Moon Review

 

All of us have had this album more than once. I’m in the process of replacing my vinyl collection and opted to replace my Pink Floyd records with the 2016 remasters. For one, they are packaged like they were when they originally came out and two, to get a fresher perspective with the remastering. I’m so glad I did. Like the original, it came with the original notes, posters and stickers along with an extra wax sleeve to protect your vinyl while leaving the other in tact for collectibility. The sound didn’t disappoint either, incredible, rich sound that to me, is perfectly balanced. I previously received the LP, "Wish You Were Here," and it too, gave me the same satisfaction. Whether you’re a new or old fan, I promise these remasters are worth it and at a great price. -Read Reviews-

I’ve had many versions of this perennial favorite. Heck, right now I have three versions of the studio release of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon alone. The original CD version, the 30th Anniversary hybrid SACD and, this, the new 2011 remaster. Although I have yet to hear the MFSL rendition, to me this is the best effort to date for a DSotM CD. For one thing, thankfully, they didn’t compress the music. It’s seems to level match fairly well with the other Dark Side CDs I have. Clarity seems to have improved also. It’s so clear that it makes the others seem a bit muddied. The great part is not etched. Meaning it sounds smooth while the music is very well defined. The noise floor seems to be lower on the 2011 remaster than either the original or 30th Ann. That makes the music more dynamic with the quieter background. Overall the improvements of the 2011 remaster of DSotM are worth getting. The sound differences may not be dramatic but are certainly audible and make this classic even better. That’s only half the story though. The Experience edition comes with the ’74 live performance of this great album. THIS is what makes paying the small premium over the Discovery edition well worth it. Not only are the boys in terrific form giving an outstanding show (much better than the Pulse show 20 years later) but the sound quality is amazing. If the original studio version weren’t so well known and this 1974 concert album were released years earlier, this could almost have become the definitive version. Highly recommended just for this CD alone. Add the well done 2011 remaster and it deserves a 5 star rating.
