    DSOTM is my DSOTM. It is my favorite album. Has been for decades. I had it on cassette first, then CD, then MP3, then LP. There is no other album that gets played more often in my house, although I usually play Wish You Were Here right after.

    I'm pretty sure my kids think DSOTM is the best album ever made.

    My Gen Z daughter says the runner up album is Lady Gaga's Fame.

    Just a wild guess that Muse and Radio Head would be near the top of that list for a younger audience.

    There is no dark side of the moon really. Mater of fact, it’s all dark.

    I wasn’t there for DSOTM and only 5 when Nevermind came out but I have a hard time imagining it wasn’t equal...

    I'm not sure what the question is. Are you asking young people, what album inspired them as much as DSOM did in my generation? Given that album was in the Top 100 for something like 30 years, and a lot of generations heard it, a lot of "kids" I meet, have neither heard of Pink Floyd, or are not interested in "classic rock". Led Zepplin, Hendrix, Joplin and others was my main influence and sparked that "need a guitar" flame in me, But DSOM blew me away the first time I heard it. Some of the earlier Pink Floyd stuff was a bit too eccentric for my simple tastes, But DSOM cemented my mindset that they were awe inspiring. Then again, when I wear my DSOM Album cover T-Shirt in the public, I get a lot of people of all ages complementing the shirt, and want to reminisce about that era of Floyd, and others.

    Go figure :D

    Pretty straight up. I'm 59, not 19. Modern pop means nothing to me, I was wondering what I'm missing. What album someone feels has made such an widespread and lasting impact. Like Sgt. Pepper.

    This was definitely the big one for my generation (entering teenage years when the album came out). For the younger generation, which is what I understood the question to be since it said "kids", I think it must be something like Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City. I seen/heard that everywhere over the past few years.

    I agree with ‘Nevermind’ by Nirvana as a landmark album for a generation. I think ‘Appetite for Destruction’ by Guns ‘n Roses would also qualify for a slightly older audience.

    That was when I felt I had found the music that spoke to me and not to the folk-rock leftovers from the 60's.

    Totally agree. Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City is another album you just start on track 1 and let it play. :thumb:

    I'm going to be honest, it doesn't really compare to Dark Side of the Moon, but I would have to say my generations closest thing to it would probably be Green Day's American Idiot album. The beauty of that album was that you didn't have to be a Green Day fan to enjoy it. It was just really good. And for the band to lose the masters to the album they were working on at the time (which was going to be called Cigarettes and Valentines) and to start completely from scratch to create what would become American Idiot, it may have been one of the greatest accidents to ever occur in rock and roll history.

    Every time I went to Venice to see family there when I was a kiddo, it was always “Little bit of heaven/94.7/KMET/tweedle dee” and I just turned 49 last week so it’s been a while.
