Brilliant
10 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series Classic Albums, despite the generic name, really stands out among simple music documentaries. They're no feature films, but they're fantastic for what they are. This - Pink Floyd - is my favourite of the series. In this documentary, members of the band and crew involved in Dark Side Of The Moon pull apart and put back together each song, recalling the process and meaning of each. This documentary is very very well-made, and demonstrates the striking beauty that we all hear in Dark Side Of The Moon. The album was carefully crafted, just brilliant- the documentary is a must for any Floyd fan.

According to Wiki, the DVD contains a few full acoustic performances and more - I streamed from Netflix so I missed that. Oh well.
