Reviews
"...a stunning slipcased edition that leaves no stone unturned in dissecting Pink Floyd's generation-defining classic, The Dark Side of the Moon...Popoff's authoritative analysis takes you on a journey through every aspect of this iconic album. Get ready to experience the album in a whole new way."--HappyMag.TV
"Pink Floyd And The Dark Side Of The Moon is a stunning book, something that is only furthered when flipping through its pages. Popoff has delivered a true coffee table book experience full of photos of the band, artwork, and vintage posters, merch, and gear to recreate the post '60s era within the pages. By limiting his focus to a single album, Popoff is able to thoroughly explore the many things that made Pink Floyd and The Dark Side Of The Moon so special in the first place rather than skimming over elements to make room for the next record."--Spill Magazine
"Popoff expertly delves into the songs' lyrics and instruments, with chapters revolving around founder Syd Barrett, the Abbey Road recording sessions (techniques used, the role of engineer Alan Parsons), the artwork and packaging designed by Hipgnosis with Storm Thorgerson (and a side trip into the company's other clients such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, etc.), the Dark Side of the Moon tours, and Pink Floyd's subsequent albums before and after Roger Waters' departure." --Rock Cellar Magazine
