Part of a series of tribute albums dedicated to major progressive Rock acts of the classic era that was created by the Magna Carta label in the 1990's, The Moon Revisited is a tribute to Pink Floyd. Or, actually, it is not so much a tribute to the band, but specifically to one album - namely, the 1973 album The Dark Side Of The Moon. Here, the well-known Pink Floyd album is faithfully recreated and little or nothing is different from the original arrangements.

Many of the same bands and artists that were involved in the creation of two other instalments in the series by Magna Carta - the Yes tribute Tales From Yesterday and the Genesis tribute Supper's Ready - also appear here, including World Trade, Cairo, Shadow Gallery, Enchant, Magellan, and Robert Berry, all of which were signed to the label at the time. I respect and appreciate most of these bands and artists and everything here is competently executed, but one cannot help asking the obvious question: what is the point of this exercise?

I must admit, first, that I am not a very big fan of Pink Floyd, and, secondly, that The Dark Side Of The Moon is not my favourite Pink Floyd album. I think it is a good album, but no more than good (I rate it with three stars). Given its status as one of the most loved Rock albums of all time, I have always thought that it is massively overrated. But regardless of what you think of the original album, this re-visitation is unnecessary.
