In 1973 it was five years ago that Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett, because of their visionary Insanity Defense had to convert from the band. What followed was a not always very successful musical search for identity and a new distribution of roles within the group. On Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother was unbalanced albums as all angrily experimented with space rock, dreamy pop, musique concrète and contemporary composed music. Beware The Dark Side Of The Moon, the Quartet knew all these elements into a whole forge and a milestone in the prog-rock. Between the throbbing heart beats that the plate opens and ends, this suite has undergone as a musical journey. For the first time took bassist/vocalist Roger Waters ideeënman and text writer to the full role of a concept (under the working title Eclipse – A Piece For Assorted lunatics) of life, death, mortality and especially fear and madness, which is enhanced by the ghostly voices that the songs together. Lyrically as musical is there left little to the imagination and this might explain why the dark The Dark Side Of The Moon one of the most successful records of the seventies. Bombast and pretense go hand in hand with beauty and accessibility on an album that will always continue to Captivate and inspire.
