Review: Roger Waters Dark Side of the Moon Redux 2023 ★★★★☆

Rating: ★★★★☆ Friday 6th October is the day that Roger Waters releases his much discussed Dark Side of the Moon Redux edition. This is a completely stripped down version of the classic magnum opus Dark Side of the Moon recorded by Pink Floyd, which became one of the best selling albums of all time, propelling Pink Floyd into the stratosphere of fame, success, money and sadly, the beginning of the end for the band. Order limited edition version from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com Although Pink Floyd would go on to record Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut, the Dark Side of the Moon delivered on the band’s goal of becoming a massively successful group. There was nothing really left for them to prove after Dark Side. Given that Dark Side was always going to be hard album to follow for Pink Floyd, it is odd then that Roger chose...

Greatest Guitar Solo of All Time - Pink Floyd Win of course!

Pink Floyd Win Greatest Guitar Solo of All Time – listen to the demo recordings

Planet Rock Radio has done an online poll to find the greatest guitar solo of all time. They let fans vote for any song they liked so didn’t limit the choice. The great news is that Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb came in at number one, and that it had nearly 10% of the vote – an astonishing result given the open ended question of which guitar solo is the greatest. The music was composed by David Gilmour during the recording of his solo album in 1978 where he hummed a melody over the top of the music he recorded. You can listen below to his first demo recording. There was also a demo made by Pink Floyd under the working title of The Doctor, which has different lyrics to the final studio version, and Roger Waters added the lyrics to that as part of his rock opera, The Wall, which...
