 “The best bassline ever, (Money), and a completely innovative song. It kinda blows my mind every time.” Brandon Flowers, The Killers
"The songs the atmospherics, the complete approach - it was all there." Phil Manzanera
 “Full of mad laughter, synthesised warblings, and apocalyptic melodies. The world’s best concept album.” Q  
“A fine album with a textured and conceptual richness that not only invites but demands involvement. There is a certain grandeur here that exceeds mere musical melodramatics.” Rolling Stone, 1973  
“...what gives the album true power is the subtly textured music, which evolves from ponderous, neo-psychedelic art rock to jazz fusion and blues-rock before turning back to psychedelia. It's dense with detail, but leisurely paced, creating its own dark, haunting world. Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one.” All Music Guide
