"Dark Side Of The Moon" Pink Floyd.
Long ago I heard "Arnold Lane" and "See Emily Play" on the radio, very English psychedelic pop singles that I loved instantly. "Pipers At The Dates of Dawn" (lovely Lovecraftian name by the way) is an album I still play a lot. Of the albums released after "Pipers" I only liked "Music From The Film More" and the studio album of "Umma Gumma". And then came "Dark Side" and it settled the question: I didn't like Pink Floyd without its crazy diamond. I don't think that I ever listened to that album after Punk again.
But sometimes the past catches up with you. Last Saterday I heard the entire "Dark Side" being played at a party.
I thought it wasn't nowhere as bad as I remembered. But a lot was passed around at that party, so I decided to listen to it again at home. Now is the time. "Dark Side" is a very well produced album, the musicians are playing excellently, I hear that now, but overall I do think that it is too pleasing, too soothing, it "perfection" too boring. And those lyrics sound, well how to say it, dated?
Still, quite a surprise.
What happened to me?
