The greatest band England have ever created, journeying through and incorporating the many styles and genres of blues, classical, pop, rock and prog, they rightly sit at the top of the list. With multi million selling albums and multi million fans worldwide how can they not be at the top. It's reputed every home in Britain has a Pink Floyd album in it ( "And quite rightly so" ) mine thankfully has a vast amount of their official and unofficiall album releases. They have touched on many aspects of man's and the world's hopes and fears, 'War, alienation, greed, love' and not just in the Dark side of the Moon album, but in albums before and after this milestone. This album was a 'Benchmark' for all those around, ( And also to follow ) to try and emulate and better, many tried and succeeded, many others fell short, but in doing so it enriches us all. So I say "Shine on you crazy diamonds, 'Let there be more light', on an 'Interstellar overdrive' and let's 'Set the controls for the heart ...more
