Tied 1st & 2nd place: The Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd & The Wall - Pink Floyd
Where do I begin? Both of these records mean so much to me. Pink Floyd has had such an incredible impact on my life. Let’s start with The Dark Side Of The Moon.
The Dark Side Of The Moon tells a story of lunacy, greed, wealth, war, time and death. These themes are covered with hauntingly beautiful songs such as The Great Gig In The Sky, Money, Time, Brain Damage/Eclipse, and Us And Them. The Dark Side Of The Moon Stayed on the charts for 751 weeks (yes, you headed me right) that is over 14 years, holding the record (pun intended) for longest consecutive time on the charts.
Released 6 years and 2 albums later, The Wall has become an extremely famous and popular record. Spanning nearly an hour and a half, The Wall tells the story of Pink, a rock and roll musician who has built a wall around himself, isolating him from the rest of the world. This storyline comes to a climax in The Trial, which is easily my favourite Pink Floyd song. The album has incredible lyrics, amazing guitar riffs and solos, beautiful melodies and has one of the most compelling and interesting stories ever told, and it is told perfectly through incredible songs such as Another Brick In The Wall parts 1,2 and 3, Mother, Hey You, Nobody Home, Vera, Comfortably Numb, Goodbye Cruel World and The trail.
These two albums are so incredible. If you haven’t checked them out, i highly recommend that you do. If you like what you hear, please also check out the band’s 1975 album Wish You Were Here, especially Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 1-5. You will not be disappointed, I promise.
