ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On March 01, 1973, Pink Floyd released an album that would cement the fame and fortune of their later career, “The Dark Side of the Moon.” This album hit FM radio stations and remained on the charts longer than most other hit albums of the era. The music explores numerous themes but much of it revolves around founding member, Syd Barrett’s descent into LSD madness. He would set the tone for much of the band’s musical ideas and thematic experiences for years to come. This album is a pleasure to behold from start to finish and we encourage everyone to rush out and add it to your collection. This album is on so many charts around the world that it is astounding and we can remember when it came out and we were in or out of high school, it was stunning, mind-blowing, and one none of us will ever forget. Look for it now.
